Most likely sized motor, remove spark plug and spray bore with WD40 or a light oil (diesel) and leave over night. Clean spark plug if you don't have a new one and see if it will turn over.

Black smoke is oil burning which would suggest the piston rings have gone causing oil to get past and into the carb. check spark plug to see if there any oil on that then you will know its the rings

    it would if the rings have snapped ? they could be jammed in the piston ? if the engine dose not turn over ( try putting it in gear and pushing it to see if the wheels are locked ) then it sounds like its seized ( either no oil so piston has jammed in the head ) or ( rings have snapped jamming the piston ) either way if the engine is seized up the head will have to come off to look )

Do you see black smoke from the exhaust pipe or do you smell a sulpher smell? Pull the spark plug and see if they are wet with gas. If they are then shut your fuel off and start it after you clean the plug and hold the throttle wide open until it starts and clears out.

The fisher price ixl when turned on its just a black screen...and when trying to turn it off it wont turn off. The batteries are brand new and it wont do anything. I have only had it for a month and it...


We're having the exact same problem with our daughters iXL, she was playing with it all the sudden the screen went black so we changed the batteries. That didn't work so we got out the manual and it said to use a Q-tip to clean the battery connections and replaced the batteries (we even tried different types of alkalines). We tried to call customer service but they are only available from 6am-3pm Mon-Fri in our area which is bull**** some of us have jobs where our lunch is short and we can't spend it on the phone. I'm really mad that her favorite Christmas present is now a useless hunk of plastic.

Truck Not Starting


Sounds like you have to much gas going thru the throttle body. When you put your foot on the gas it opens the airway and lets air and no gas. The black smoke is unburned gas. Replace the throttle body and you should be good to go. It could be the fuel sensor also, telling the pump the wrong info.

If you are sure that the engine oil is coming into the combustion chamber, then you have to overhaul the engine. After the overhaul is done, have it calibrated and and clean the exhaust pipe to get rid of the black smoke. And! remember, for diesel engines a big black smoke will always come out the exhaust if you suddenly step on the gas too deep and then over-revving it. (I mean always, that's why roadside emissions people are so stupid when stepping on the gas, they always step on it suddenly and over-rev it, it's a sure fail)

My 21 HP diesel zero turn mower starts blowing black smoke after running at higher throttle settings and temp gauge shows engine is warm. No air restrictions. New fuel filters. smooth running when cool or...


Looks like you've got a good idea on what makes diesels smoke, so I'm sure you know that black smoke is almost always from too much fuel for the air that's going in. So it can be too much fuel or too little air. If your filters are good, the next things to check are the fuel pressure and the injectors.

I know diesels, but I don't have any specific experience with lawn mowers (kubota?). Since it stalls eventually, it sounds like it's not a single cylinder (although not for sure) so I'd check injector pump first.
