Hi michelley636
Check your oil level, it sounds like it is too much oil in the crankcase causing it to burn in the combustion chamber

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.

I was mowing Yest and White smoke started pouring out the Front Could that be bad gas or what


no its not gas. it could be a few things. look on the front of engine and see if it is leaking oil on the muffler. could be rings are bad. could be a valve has stuck. either way it sound like it is a project. when white smoke comes out exhaust it is usually engine failure.

I have a 1985 xr250r and it blows a **** load of white smoke out the muffler it has recently had new oil put in top end rebuild not long ago and new spark plug what should I do to help fix


Hi, Jordan your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on startup is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on startup may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on startup is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

I changed the oil and white smoke poured out of the exhaust. Also there was oil spewing all over.


Depending on if you laid the engine over on its' side, there could have been oil in the muffler. It may take some time to "burn" this off. It will also come from the muffler. Given enough time the oil will get hot and smoke off of the muffler. Then it will no longer smoke.
I hope this answers your question.

you could have a broken piston ring. check the oil level. if it is ok or low and still smokes or hard to start then you may have to overhaul the engine. let me know what you find.

I don't drive a Ford but I drive an International and white smoke on start up means the engine is too cold to properly burn the fuel. Your black oil or soot is unburnt fuel. You should look at your engine's preheat system for a malfunction.
