Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
I have cleaned the area put cant see the leak. It only leaks under load so you cant see a leak when it is idleing
I realize this is not an easy thing to do, but it'll save you time in the long run.
If, for example, the leak is at the base of the dipstick, there is an o-ring at the base that can be repaired really easily. If, however, you have a leaking sump gasket, you'll need to remove the engine from the tractor to fix it, and that's a whole lot more work. There's a possibility that the plug at the base of the oil filter is loosened. These are the most common things in the area you describe.
I'm going to post a parts breakdown below that shows the assembly of your engine that may be helpful for reference. It's a bit slow to download so please be patient. I would suggest saving to to your desktop as a reference until we finish working through this.
You're certainly correct about that being too long to wait for an answer. I personally try to be very responsive and spend about 50-60 hours a week helping customers to the best of my ability. You should have been given through the site the option to get faster service since I wasn't available (sorry, but can't be here 24 hours a day personally). I'm sorry if it wasn't clear to you through the interface on how to do that. Looks like the holdup occurred when you took 17 hours and 27 minutes to continue.
As far as the $30, I replied to your first $13 question 6 minutes and 11 seconds after you posted it. I replied back to your second duplicate $17 question 4 minutes and 56 seconds after you asked it. Since you posted a $17 and a $13 question, that's why the site billed you for $30.
I'll alert the site moderators to your request for a refund. Since you didn't accept my answer I was not paid for the time and effort I put into trying to assist you. Very sorry it didn't work out and I hope you'll give us another shot in the future. Most customers are very pleased with the experience.
