Sounds like you may have a problem with the float valve in your carberator. If it's stuck open, even when the engine isn't running gas could be building up in the carb because your carb float valve isn't limiting it. And if it's building up and filling the carb, then it will eventually drop into the engine and subsequent oil pan. Look for signs of excess wet gas in the airboxin. That's a sign something in the carb isn't regulating the gas right.

When you check on top of your carburetor ,while the engine is running, you will see fuel being sprayed from one of the jets.That fuel goes to the inlets,so if there is no fuel being sprayed that means there is a blockage on the jets where there is a float.Remove the upper part of your carburetor by taking off the screws.Becafull

The high speed jet isn't rich enough or the carb passages needs to be cleaned. You can move the clip down one spot on the needle so it gets more gas, this will also give you more power at the top end.

Check to see if one of the shifter rods behind the side pannel are bent.this usually happens due to lack of lube end people try to force it into gear.

hey Tammy... does the neutral light come on??? if not... find neutral..see what happens.. next.. have your batteries CCA checked.. (Cold Cranking Amps)...the amperage is what makes the starter work..NOT voltage...you can take it to Oreilly's, autozone, batteries and bulbs, or your local battery store...
