SOURCE: 17.5 h.p. b/s craftsman tractor oil pushes into carb. smokes bad!

Make sure it's not overfilled with oil.
if this is not the case, then you have excessive blowby, which is what blows past your rings when the air/fuel mixture ignites. there is only one explanation for this, faulty rings, and that's what it sounds like to me. the blowby forces the oil into the vent leading to the filter, and back into the cylinder, where it burns, creating blue smoke.

SOURCE: what would cause white smoke from the front of my

It could be your valves. My friends mower was blowing a lot of smoke and I think some oil. I replaced the valves and it runs like a dream.
I can't remember the steps to remove and replace, sorry.
If you are mechanically inclined it shouldn't be that hard. The only problem I has was the new valves (keeper or whatever holds them in place) was different than the old one.
You could call a repair shop and get an estimate.
Good luck. Let me know if this any help.

SOURCE: Why does my craftsman rider blow out black smoke

could be any number of things - when you changed the oil, was it really runny? was it way overfilled? if runny, possibly the carburetor inlet needle is not shutting off and gas is flooding the crankcase. overfilled? older kohlersmeasure oil level without screwing dipstick in. puking oil into the air filter housing? could be a blown head gasket. OR, it could be as simple as a bad spark plug, it DOES happen

SOURCE: husqvarna yth1848xpt with a kawaskie 20 hp puffs black smoke

I had the same problem with my YTH1848XPT . Believe it or not it is simply a dirty air filter....you must remove the filter and blow it out with an air compressor...or better yet replace it. you can not clean it well enough without the force of the air compressor. Mine works great now.

Engine growing black smoke


Usually this is a sign of oil being in the ignition chamber. Check the oil level, if too high drain and refill to proper level. Also if you have hills or slopes in your yard make sure that you are mowing up and down not across. If you must mow across the slope make sure to do it with the oil to the downward side. Caution if you do this too often the engine will be deprived of oil all together and seize up.

Occasional heavy smoke on tickover, but not using oil and oil clean.


HI do you now the color of the smoke
if engine emits white smoke its not burning the fuel
it could be water mixing with fuel = head gasket even tho you
dot have water in the oil
if engine emits black smoke - that's excessive fuel to air ration
check air filter & air inlet to see if clogged

if engine emits blue smoke - excessive oil consumption
cloud be valve seals

1999 saturn sw has blue smoke coming from tailpipe. I would like to know if it has anything to do with head gasket


blue smoke is usually oil burning- is it light or heavy- if light- change oil and go up one grade- rings are worn- if heavy- time for a rebuild- rings need to be replaced. but for the money on rebuild- could find car newer and lower milage

Using oil...no leakage...no smoking


by recently, do you mean, since it got hot outside? if you're using a multi-vis oil, it gets too thin in hot weather and will "vaporize" and burn, not enough to cause smoking. use a good 30 weight oil. other than that, can't think of anything else that would cause it with no leaking or smoking

Sounds like the rings are worn and letting oil escape past them into the cylinder head. After all, it's been in service a long time. There are several options, including a rebuild with boring out the cylinder and put oversize rings in, buying a new engine and replacing the old one, or just buying a new mower.
