Lots of smoke and low power

My snowblower was working fine and when I refilled it with the same mixture I had been using, it began emitting gray smoke and had very little power.

What is fuel mixture on 25 cc craftsman weedwacker

This small engine needs a 40:1 ratio. Use only 2 cycle oil, not motor oil. If you are mixing one gallon of fuel use 3.2 ounces of the 2 cycle oil. This should give correct mixture so you do not get lots of smoke when you start. Take the time to measure. Note: there should be a marking somewhere on the engine about the mixture.

Starts ok slight vibration almost like its missing plenty of spark at coil no power when driving, slight vibration

run fault codes and look for misfire and faulty injectors . Have a pressure test done on the fuel manifold as low pressure will result in your description.

My Toyota Innova Diesel emits too much smoke. I've cleaned the EGR valve repeatedly but the problem comes back again after only a few days.

first make sure your air filter is clean. and make sure your oil level is correct.
lack of enough air will cause a lot of smoke and poor fuel economy
lack of air would show as gray to black smoke.
oil burning would be light gray to white

Snowblower smokes

Try running it for a while, also check the oil level and make sure it is not overfilled. If it is a 2 cycle make sure the oil and gas mixture is correct, most are 50/1 ratio. That is to say 50 parts gas and one part oil.

Toro CCR2450 Snowblower - was tuned up every year and worked fine. Last year sat empty in garage and never used. Added gas/oil combo and white smoke is billowing out. Any idea of cause?

My name is Dane and I am going to try to help you solve your problem. Are you sure nothing is rubbing outside the engine creating the smoke? If this smoke is indeed coming from the exhaust, I would think that your problem has to be in your fuel. You may have mixed too much oil in the mixture or it has been contaminated with water. Remove your spark plug and make sure it isn't oil fouled. If you find it is, drain your fuel and either clean with a wire brush or replace the plug. Refill with properly mixed fuel and you should be good to go. It may smoke for a couple of minutes until the fuel in the lines works through the carb though. No harm done.
I hope I've helped. If you found this information useful, please leave feedback as deserved. Thank you! Dane

My engine began smoking and I have a stong smell coming from the under the hood in my 2001 Jeep. Low Coolant lite came on. What is wrong?

Let it cool down, then add water to the radiator, not the recovery bottle. Re-start it and check for leaks. If while checking, it overheats, replace the thermostat and do it again. Replace any leaking items.
If you badly overheated it you may have damaged the engine. If it won't start or makes a lot of noise or, you see lots of white smoke from the exhaust then you have a large problem. (time for a shop)
If everything is OK, then remove the lower hose at the radiator and re-attach it, then refill the system with the appropriate amount of antifreeze (small inexpensive hydrometers are available at most parts houses. You want a 50/50 mix.) Always run the heater on high heat to avoid having air trapped in the system while re-filling.

MTD Snowblower starts good but runs very rough

Carb adjustment. There is usually a HIGH and LOW fuel mixture adjustment on the carb. Sounds like the LOW needs to be adjusted. Do a search on the Internet for a service manual for your particular model/make. Simple job IF you have the manual there for guidance.
Good Luck
