Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
Can you tell me where on the engine it is leaking. front, sides, middle? Is the machine smoking any under a load? Does it get on the frame or is it underneath the machine?
What engine is on this machine?
From just basic info, you can be leaking oil from either of the valve covers, the head could be blown and leaking (usually get smoke) could be coming from dip stick gasket not being sealed off entirely, oil drain port leaking, or the oil seal at the bottom of the engine
If oil is underneath the machine, sounds like you have an oil seal leaking.
yes you can use mower still. not good if it leaks down on the belt or clutch, but can be used. Replacement is pretty easy. have to pull all pulleys off the crankshaft and then dig old one out with screwdriver and tap new one on
