got a bolens 660 with a briggs and stratton 17.5 hp engine. it started backfiring and blowing oil all over the place. where do i start looking for problems?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'd say the engine...
Is it blowing oil through the exhaust or engine external? Oil level spot on or seem high/ gas smell to it?
