Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! 2 cycle engine? Oil has to be mixed with gas or injected. Or four cycle , where oil is in the crankcase? Is oil level over full? Does oil smell of fuel? Where does the engine vent come out, most come out just before the carburetor inlet, letting oil vapors be drawn into the air filter.
