Would a possible oil leak cause a mount to not start even if oil was added? I have an El Diablo Masterblend that some days works amazing and some days wont start. I bring it to shop and it starts right up. Next day it wont start. Found oil all over wiring and side of machine. Gonna check spark plugs tomorrow. It started up and stalled tonight then just wouldnt turn over. Also have problems with the heat, had a switch replaced but it still works when it wants to. Anything on the burner tI can check? Any help is appreciated

How often do you check your oil. I don’t have this model but I think it’s an air cooled engine so it burns oil. Do you let it run low a lot? We check our air cooled engines every day so we don’t forget
