SOURCE: Constant white smoke while running

White smoke is oil burn off. First off, check the oil level (sounds dumb, I know) and make sure the oil is not overfilled. Overfilling would be the easiest solution. If there is oil burning onto the spark plug but the oil is not overfilled, I would think rings... possibly scarring in the cylinder. Something allowing the oil to seep past the piston into the head. If the cylinder is scarred, there are .020 oversized pistons and rings available for the engines, rebore the cylinder and place those in.

SOURCE: My cub let out a big ploom of white smoke and shut off.

This is caused by two things low oil level and overheating, The oil also has a cooling agent in it so if it was run low the engine would not get lubrication and overheat possibly causing the conrod to break if you say its only 10 hrs old i would be talking to the dealer you purcased it from or the engine manufacturer. its unusual for an engine with very little hours on it.

SOURCE: Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.

Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.

SOURCE: Murray 4.5 hp Q lawn mower runs rough and smokes.

White smoke indicates that it is burning oil. The smoke would be black if it was running rich. So probably the rings will need to be replaced eventually. These mowers are prone to problems but the carbie is least likely to be the problem. So before you adjust the carbie take the cover off the top and give it a good clean and check that all the hoses are connected and are not cracked. Then make sure the airfilter is clean, blow it out with an air compessor or better still get a new one. Then try it out agian. If this doesn't help there is two screws on the carby marked L and H. Turn these only 1/8th of a turn at a time and note or make their current position. Start with the H scew with the mower at full revs. Turn anti clockwise untill you get max revs then turn it back a bit. Running too lean will over heat the motor and damage it. Then if needed adjust the L (or Low)screw. If you get black or grey smoke when you push the throttle up from idle to full its too rich so turn clockwise. If if slows before it picks up to full revs turn anti clockwise.

What causes engine to blow bluish white smoke and cause engine to quit approx. 10 sec. after starting


Blue smoke on start is oil leaking through valve seals into the cylinder, white smoke is actually steam that is from a bad head gasket that is leaking coolant into the cylinders.

White smoke coming from my suzuki intruder lc 1500


First check carb gasket. White smoke usually mean cooler leeks (for liquid cooled engines)- suspect head gasket. But this is just if smoke coming from exhaust not engine.

Have a toroZ5035 mower 90 turn) with kawasaki engine. **** smoke appears on start up, but goes away when warmed up. choke must be kept on at least halfway or motor dies. changed plugs and cleaned air...


**** smoke sounds bad, If what you meant was white smoke then I know what is going on with the mower. The white smoke is from the extra oil in the cylinder head. There are tow causes for this. #1 the engine rings are worn and will not prevent the oil from running into the combustion chamber as the engine sits. #2 the carburetor is leaking fuel into the oil and thinning it out. This thin oil bypasses the rings easier and drives the oil level up too. I would recommend a carburetor rebuild. You can get parts from a local dealer like www.arcolawn,com Good luck barterjoe_64.png

Well, you have to be quite specific with the color of your smoke. White smoke indicates water vapor and Blue smoke indicates oil. If the mnornings are chilly, you can almost always expect to see water vapor smoke. Another thing is how much smoke is it? You can try an engine oil additive such as Restore or change the type of oil you use in your engine. It's hard to say without a lil more detail, but if you replaced all that and it runs smooth and quiet, then I wouldn't worry a whole lot about it. Without being remanufactured, a 2000 engine aint gonna run like new in 2011 no matter what you do to it. Hope this helps.

New exhuast plugs wires jetted carb stilll getting smoke from one pipe ,from front jug ,but bike runs excellent. any ideas


What color is the smoke? If the smoke is white, it's oil smoke. If it's fuel, it'll be black smoke.

Generally, black smoke from the exhast indicates a too rich mixture for one reason or the other. You said you rejetted the carb. This could be part of the problem. You also said that it's only out of the front pipe. If you rejet the carb, it effects both cylinders. If you have a vacuum leak on the rear cylinder, this could cause the front cylinder to run rich.

If the smoke coming from the front cylinder is white smoke, you may have a oil problem. It could be rings, a valve stem seal, or a head gasket leak. But, unless the smoke is heavy and the bike runs good, I wouldn't worry about it. If it bothers you, have a leakdown test run on the engine. That should tell you where the problem is. Or, just do a top end overhaul on the engine and be done with it. Have a new set of rings installed or have it bored and new pistons if needed. Also have a valve job done on the heads. This should solve the problem as you'll have to replace the intake gaskets when you take the intake and heads off.

Don't just keep throwing money at the problem. That gets expensive and is only successful part of the time. Anytime you have a problem with one cylinder only, whatever is wrong is confined to that cylinder. Anything that you do that effects both cylinders is usually useless. I would suspect a valve stem seal on your bike. You didn't say how many miles you have on the engine nor what type of carb you're running.

Good Luck

MY Kawasaki FH500V commercial lawn mower engine won't start.


Try cleaning the throttle body. If it runs on carb-cleaner being sprayed into the intake then you have a fuel delivery problem, if not you'd be more inclined to more serious mechanical failure. I assume if you use it every day you do the regular oil changes, air filter cleaning, and air-cooling system cleaning, correct? Please indicate if you had a white smoke, blue smoke, or black smoke from the mower too. The motor spins freely when attempting to start, and just doesn't fire, correct?

My bmw x5 3d relising so much smoke from exust


Just had my car in the garage with horrendous white smoke coming from the exhaust. The problem with mine was a blocked crankcase breather. When blocked oil is passed into the exhaust system apparently.
Problem solved by the mechanic and half a day in the garage with the engine running to burn off the excess oil in the exhaust and the problem was solved. Had gentle ride out to the coast yesterday approx 1.5 hrs each way and the smoke has gone.
Good result for £160.00. I dread to think what the dealer would have charged.

Blue smoke comes from exaust is it carb or rings


Blue smoke means oil is burning. The most likely reason is oil is getting past your piston rings because of wear. Run a compression check. If it is less than 150 psi it is time for a rebuild. It may run for a while burning oil and you will want to replace most of the parts anyway so it probably won't cost you much more money to keep running it until it dies. Just keep a close watch on your oil, if you run it out of oil it won't run for more than a few minutes.
