A lot of time when the small motors on these push mowers surge it is a governing spring that is weak or broke. It does not hold enough tension and causes the valve to fluctuate. I have fixed this many time for a relatively cheap amount (under $5).

computerscot is right. This engine is not designed to run slower than a few hundred RPM below maximum. The carb has a built-in fuel pump that only operates properly at relatively high speed. Your motor probably has either missing or weak throttle springs which will lower the RPM. Replace them and adjust the tension so that the speed is up. For a diagram of the carb and springs, check the Briggs & Stratton online user manual maintenence section. Look for file "briggsandstrattonMS5373-GB.pdf".

This is probably not a blown gasket issue. A bad head gasket can allow oil to enter the cylinder head/combustion chamber if it's not sealing off the valve area. A simple suggestion is to check on the engine opposite the carb side for the oil/crankcase breather. It will have 2 screws holding it onto the block. It has a type of filter media in it that traps excessive oil and oil vapors from the engine. It is also connected by a tube to the air filter housing. When you tipped, you probably put too much oil in the breather and it was inducted over to the air filter/carb intake side.
Clean or replace the breather after checking it and also make sure you haven't overfilled the Briggs with oil and only use SAE 30 in the engine. Muti-viscosity isn't recommended in summer unless you run synthetic, then it is OK.
Please vote on this solution.

Engine surge is usually caused by one of two things...
1) a lean condition. Not getting enough fuel.
2) throttle plate shaft in carb is worn. usually clears up when engine is put under a load. You can live with it or replace the carb

Toro str will not start, motor spins but will not fire


Ensure clean fuel. Always use Stabile in fuel. Follow fuel line from fuel tan to carb, ensure no leaks. Remove carb fuel bowl to check float operation. Have pliers to crimp line or use fuel shut off valve. Remove carb float bowl and clean. Float should hang down freely gas should flow. Push float up gas should cut off. Replace spark plug, ensure plug wire snaps on tight. Clean or replace air filter. Ensure oil is full, 30w oil. All mowers have low oil shutoff.

Remove and clean the brass bolt that holds the float bowl on the carburetor. Clean out the bowl too. Use no metal objects to clean this bolt. It has 3 small holes...bottom...and on the sides near the top. Use carb/choke aerosol spray cleaner on it. IT can clog (esp. without an inline fuel filter on mower). Clean the bolt good, reinstall (not forgettting felt gasket between IT and the bowl) and your runnability problem and fuel flow problem should be solved as the bolt is also the main jet of the carburetor.
