    I am assuming you have a Kohler engine-a 25Hp probably,like myself.Good luck,sounds like your dealer is taking care of you,like mine did.

    What caused the backfire? Was it changing the oil? I have a Great Dane and don't want to have this trouble.

    Keep that number handy. As a matter of fact Kohler should give out a mechanics phone number with every 25hp POS that they sell.
    Good Luck.

    I've been there and its not over yet.
