Sounds like the engine is tired. Blue smoke is oil burning. Hard starting is oil on the spark plugs and/or low compression. This also can be due to someone adding too much oil.
Sometimes, the carburetor Needle valve hangs u pa bit and the Crank case oil gets mixed with gas so now the oil level is high. Too much oil in a motor is bad too, that would cause theblue smoke too.

Just replaced air filter, fuel filter, and plug. Ran good for 10 minutes then started spuddering and died. Restarted right away and huge cloud of blue smoke came out. It spudders for a minute and dies


Blue smoke is oil. Have you checked you pcv? (Pollution control valve) it usually runs from one of the valve covers to the airfilter unit.

Blowing white smoke out of exhaust


sounds like it is still overfilled ,, oil is leaking on the back side of the piston .. or may be a blown head gasket and being overfilled was just a coincidence if it is a briggs motor I would be suspect of a head gasket.

Why is my 2000 kia sephia blowing blue smoke from the tailpipe. it has 86,000 miles. the check oil warning light is on even though the dipstick reads full.


The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.

Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.

Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.

Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

95 ford probe car runs ok but blows whitish blue smoke as accelerate


That is probably the head gasket leaking. White smoke is from antifreeze going through the exhaust. The engine compression is pushing the water out of the radiator.

Overfill oil


Did you turn the mower on end or over? If so change the air filter otherwise It sounds like the piston rings are worn out. Rings are cheep but unless its an expensive lawnmower I would just replace it.

My mtd yard machine (leaf blower) started billowing white smoke. I shut it off and now it won't start again.


First check the oil level. If its overfilled correct it. Then remove the spark plug and turn the engine over. Replace the spark plug.
Start the engine. Use a prime ( squirt carb cleaner into carb) if you need to. It may start smoking again. Thats OK as long as you know there is oil in it and you dont hear any strange noises. Let the unit run for about 5-10 minutes and see if the smoke clears up. Once it quits smoking stop it and check the oil.

Engine only runs with choke on. Blue smoke comes out and engine runs rough or not at all


sounds like you have a bad Ring on the Piston or a blown head possibly. Blue smoke means Oil is getting into the combustion chamber. Full choke means you have to give this 'broken' engine a lot of gas to compensate for it's problem.
Do you change the oil at least once a year? Filthy oil or a lack of oil will kill an engine

Have a toro self propelled. The engine cuts off as soon as it starts and prior to that it was blowing white smoke. It looks like there may be oil leaking under the exhaust, but can't tell where i


It could be that gas is filling the carb because the needle is stuck open. The excess can drain into the engine oil. If you check the oil and it's overfilled and runny, then you need to overhaul the carb and change the oil.
