Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi my name is ***** ***** welcome to Just Answer. With the engine cold check the oil to see if it smells like gas.
Is it thin at all
That's my concern . It doesn't disappear and come back , but oil can thin if gas mixes with it . So if your carb is allowing gas into the crankcase and it's mixing with the oil it will thin it , then it thins more as it gets hot
Has the carburetor been rebuilt or worked in recently ?
Grade school ... I haven't even began to troubleshoot, that's why I'm asking you to check the oil , if gas keeps mixing in it it locks the motor up eventually
What happens is the oil gets thinner , so your gas rank would be empty before use , that's why I said make sure the oil has no gas odor to it
Can you give me the model number off your motor itself .
Oil thins as its gets hot , if your oil is full when cold that's full with the filter etc . So if it's not smoking then it could be allowing blow by , but you would see oil on the air filter . They don't have a oil cooler, and you most likely have a oil filter but it would be full of oil when you check it when it's cold
It should have a tag on the engine saying something like ch20
Hi just checking to see if you had the mower looked at or found the engine model number
We have no control over what just answer charges. You can contact customer service for a refund. We as technicians only get paid when a customer is satisfied with a answer , so whatever you were charged was done by just answer so I would recommend contacting customer service .
Listen , if you think we are in charge of what your charged you are sadly mistaken . Do you see that screen shot , do you see that little box saying I'm ready to be rated ? . When I click that and receive a good to excellent rating I get paid . I don't click it or ask to be rated till I resolve the customers problem. I don't ask for tips either, but every expert is different . So again contact customer service because we don't get your payment info , cc info etc . And my answers weren't grade school , oil doesn't disappear and reappear. It doest sneak out and go to a party and come back when the engine cools off . The motor either could have gas in the oil which thins it or it doesn't have the right weight oil in it . The engine could shut off from a low oil sensor , or if your compressing falls once hot . Have you ran a compression test before starting and after it dies ?
