The engine is either over filled with oil, or the machine has been tipped up allowing oil up the breather and into the air filter box, if the filter is a paper element type replace it, the smoke will clear eventually.

SOURCE: put the wrong oil in my riding lawn mower. Should

It should be OK, provided no damage was done to the engine when you ran it. Hopefully, you caught it quickly. Just to be on the mechanically safer side, I'd change the oil again. If your mower is equipped with a filter and you didn't change it after the 2 cycle happening, change it, too. If you have a filter, always fill the filter with oil before you mount it if the orientation of the filter allows. Fill the engine with oil. Check and start. There may still be some smoking until you clear the residue out, and you may even have to clean your spark plug(s) a time or two. You should see a gradual improvement in your exhaust plume. If any damage had occurred to your engine, you will likely hear abnormal sounds. If this is the case, shut the mower down immediately and investigate forther, with your local professional.
Best Regards! --W/D--

SOURCE: GOT GASOLINE IN OIL TANK.

Empty the tank of the tainted gasoline (Maybe add the right amount of oil and use it for a trimmer, etc), fill tank with fresh gas and clean the spark plug, since it is probably fouled out. You may have to clean the carb with some carb cleaner, and clean your plug a few extra times, but it should be fine. Hope this helps. Good luck.

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: when i start my lawn mower, white smoke comes out

Crankcase is over full. Check oil level more carefully before adding. ALSO ALWAYS when cleaning the deck REMEMBER AIR CLEANER UP .
It you lay it down on the wrong side oil can get from the crankcase to the muffler and carb and aircleaner. Thats oil smoke you see.

White smoke comes out when I pull the cord.


Did you notice this after the engine oil was changed. If you overfill oil it will smoke. Check oil level. Let me know if this helped. I have other ideas, but this is the most common problem with smoking.

Continues blowing out white smoke after I start the lawn mower


Hik marie carten...
Normally white smoke coming out of the exaust will me one of two things.
You have overfilled the crankcase with too much oil and it is making the smoke, in which case you can drain the excess oil out and that should elimanate the white smoke.
Or, you have a worn out engine and oil is getting by the rings of the piston and being burnt in the combustion chamber of the engine.Which means engine overhaul, or buy a new mower.

When I start mower it is ok for about 30 seconds and then a lot of white smoke starts coming out and small drops of oil start to drip onto body


It sounds like a lot of "blow-by" which means the rings or piston is leaking compression in high amounts carrying oil and water vapor to collect onto the vent where it drips.
