Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you.
Check your engine oil level, to see if it is overfilled. Also, check to see if your oil smells like gas is mixed in with it.
Thanks for your response. The gas in your oil could be causing our problem. I would change your engine oil, and refill to proper level, then try starting your engine again.
Also, remove your spark plug, then pull your rope to see if excess gas spews out of your spark plug hole.
You are very welcome!
If gas spews out, just continue pulling your rope, to rid your combustion chamber of excess gas. Do not allow your spark plug wire to come in contact with your gas, if it does spew out.
Will your engine continue to run when the gas is spitting from your OHV tube?
