Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
You may have already fixed or solved your problem. If the dipstick was not sealed properly it would allow air to be sucked into the crankcase which would then pressurized the crankcase and cause the engine to start blowing oil out of it. You might try running it for a little while now and see what happens.
This engine is normally trouble free with the exception of an occasional blown intake gasket(intake manifold to block).
You didn't mention any notice of power loss but a blown head gasket or partially blown could also cause this same issue.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
Please take a moment to rate your experience.
Once that you have had a chance to run the engine and check it out you can come back here and continue our conversation if you need to.
