Bad plug. even worse gas.
2 stroke oil breaks down and makes the fuel dirty after so long in the gas can. Also check your filter to assure its not got alot of leaf debris. -Jeff Anchorage Small engine repair.

1997 mazda e2000 van which is blowing black smoke


if it takes 5-10 mins of running before black smoke disappear i think you could have broken rings causing engine oil into the combustion chamber. you could observe white smoke if you have just changed oil.
solution would be to replace piston rings. it would save u a lot if u could diy.

Have 82 ford truck f150 runs for abut 5-15 mins than dies getin gas chang full pups two times same thant runs and die


Hmmm...maybe piston ring failure, valve seal failure, rich air/fuel mixture or maybe a head gasket (however that is normally white smoke due to coolant burning instead of oil). If it's so dark that it's almost blue then I can tell you that somehow oil is getting into the cylinder and burning alongside the air and fuel. Your best case scenario is that the engine is running rich (Rich:Too much fuel, Lean:Too much air) and the smoke is a dark grey to black color. CAUSES OF SMOKE

Engine only runs with choke on. Blue smoke comes out and engine runs rough or not at all


sounds like you have a bad Ring on the Piston or a blown head possibly. Blue smoke means Oil is getting into the combustion chamber. Full choke means you have to give this 'broken' engine a lot of gas to compensate for it's problem.
Do you change the oil at least once a year? Filthy oil or a lack of oil will kill an engine

Chevy Aveo strange smell and smoke coming through the vent with air conditioning on. Checked engine-OK. Turned up air conditioning full blast...after 30 seconds...little more smell and smoke it stopped...


If the blower motor is still working, that was not the problem-the strange smell might have been from some bacteria in the plenium, and the smoke may have just been the result of condensation from the evaporator in the plenium-keep an eye on it, but if the blower is working, I would not be overly concerned about it.

My lawn mower gcv 160 run for 3 minutes and die,has to wait some minutes to start again


does it blow blue smoke= sounds like over fueling, so you need to get the carby a service.

if not blowing smoke= *sounds like over heating. check to see if the cooling vents on the side of the engine are blocked eg wasps nests. if it has a radiator, check the water level and then look along the front and back to see if it is blocked with grass. if so blow out with hose or air blower.

The smoke is oil going in to the combustion chamber, will have to check for broken rings or piston. also if the tractor was stored in a position that the oil would run to the combustion chamber it will do that untill all the oil is burn
