The fuel mixture is way too lean, or a burnt valve. Check the spark plug color it should be bisuit brown, if it is grey then suspect the above.

Expect to hear your head gasket needs replacing, at a minimum. White smoke means it's burning coolant. How much it will cost I can only guess, but usually a head gasket repair- a few hundred dollars-it's pretty time consuming and labor intensive, especially with all the turbo stuff that could be in the way. Good luck.

Replace the mass air flow meter.Thats the sort of problem you will get when its faulty.And this should be changed every 90.000.I think your fuel consumption has gone up aswell due to the air flow meter.hope that was helpfull.Good luck.

Oil causing a problem?


Sound as if you have too much oil in the machine. Anytime you see white or lite gray smoke it is a sign of too much oil. Before you go through the routine of cleaning the oil out of every nook and cranny, try unscrewing the spark plug and clean it with a soft rag. It would have oil on it preventing the machine from starting. If this does work and there isn't a lot of oil in the gas tank now, just continue running the engine until the smoke clears. It won't hurt anything. But if cleaning the plug doesn't help you will have to empty all gas and oil from the gas tank, refill with new gas, squirt a little gum out carb cleaner in your carb to remove any oil there (this can be done when you try to restart the engine). Remember, when you are mowing grass if you are mowing on a hill) of any knd, make sure to turn the mower so the gas tank is on a higher level than the oil.

Lawn mower engine runs rough and puts out white smoke


Pull the carburetor and clean it for staters.Be sure to change oil any little bit of moisture in the crankcase will let it smoke white by seeping by the valves and piston rings.Also put a little small amount of dry gas in the gas tank to rid all of the water that may have been left in the tank. I some of this will help you.
