I have a Toro Z Master and I've noticed some oil at the bottom of the air intake. The engine is a 23hp Kawasaki. Its bee this way for awhile now and hasnt caused any problems, I was curious as to what the reasoning is for this and what I could do to solve the problem. Everything seems to be running well, except lately when temps were at 90F the mower engine would surge a little.

My 23 Kaw does the same. I always thought it was from the oil I put on the pre cleaner.

You do know the crankcase vents into the intake right?

Would you recommend soaking any of the oil up?

u will never be able to soak it up. your crankcase vents to the carb
