    was it doing this before you fixed the flat tire?

    When you removed/changed the tire did you tip the mower on its side to get access to the tire?

    If you did, then some oil from the crankcase gets into other parts of the machine. The smoke should be temporary. Let it run at low speed until it clears up

    Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh Please leave a rating thks

Have you tried checking your fuel filter or your air breather?

I had this problem, and it turned out to be my fault. I had overfilled the oil (didn't have my reading glasses on!). Run for a little while on low, and the smoke clears up. If you've overfilled WAY too much, you will need to drain out some. Good luck!

Model TB110 rand great first few times but will not run now. Cranks but run rough and dies. Only had 6 weeks. Lowes say they can't help me and I just need to have it serviced! After 6 weeks? Give me...


Hello,
My name is Dane. Troy-Bilt says this mower has a 2 year warranty with a briggs engine. According to troy bilt, that engine is suppose to start in 2 pulls or they fix it for free. Take it to a local briggs dealer and get them to look at it. I would hate to have you try something and you void your warrenty somehow. Here's the link to the website.

My Troy-Bilt mower starts easily but not as powerful, stays on for less than 5 minutes and gradually stops. some black smoke is coming out


If the black smoke comes out of the muffler, you are burning excess fuel and could have an air filter plugged up to restrict air intake and cause the engine to run rich, therefor black smoke.

How do you remove the gears on a front wheel self propelled troy bilt push mower?


Take the front tires off, pull gears and take out pins, put tires back on and you have a "non-self propell" mower.

I have a Troy-Bilt Pony riding lawn mower and the tire was low when I started using it. The tire ended up getting flat and now it won't seal when I try to air it up. What can I do? Is there a sealant I can...


there is a sealant called slime it is green in color at lowes or depot or walmart read directions and install
or you can buy a inner tube and fix it
tube size is based on tire size
check inside of the tire before the tube is used if you go that route to be sure there is nothing to puncture the tube.
you can buy string type plugs to plug a leak if it is in the tread
use windex or equivalent to search for a leak
if its leaking around the rim remove tire and completely clean the rust from the inner rim where the tires bead seats against the rim when inflated.

Riding mower engine loud and smoking.


take it to a reputable shop and have them check it over - courage engines had a problem when they first came out - the bolts in the cover plate were not torqued properly and when they come loose, the torque of the engine turning will crack the block - this should be a warranty condition if the block is cracked - just make sure the shop is a kohler warranty station

Mower smoking and sputtering.


Sounds like the engine is getting flooded because the carburetor float needle is not seating. Let me know if this helps.donnyb60
