Lots of smoke coming out of Cub Cadet 2146 muffler

I added oil since there was no reading on the stick and now I have lots of smoke coming out of the muffler, did I add too much? If so, where is the plug to drain and refill? Any help is appreciated - Pam

Check the dip stick to see if you over filled it.. You shouldn't have oil above the top line... If you did over fill it remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to the exhaust side to drain on the excess oil out of the dip stick tube...

If it's not over filled with oil the engine more then likely shot and it's time for a new mower..

    You should be able to find the drain plug somewhere on the bottom side of the engine...

Why is my cub cadet xt1 blowing black smoke cleaned air filter made sure oil level is correct.still blows black smoke


Make sure that at full throttle the chock is not being used. Black smoke coming out of the exhaust of gasoline engine is a sign of a rich fuel mixture (too much fuel, not enough air). A brief puff of black smoke may be visible during hard acceleration when the fuel mixture goes momentarily rich, but under normal running conditions and idling the exhaust should be transparent. If black smoke is visible all the time and the inside of the muffler is coated with heavy black carbon deposits, it would tell you the engine has a rich fuel condition.
On engine, a rich fuel condition and black smoke can be caused by a stuck or maladjusted choke, a leaky metal or hollow plastic float inside the carburetor fuel bowl, or a fuel saturated foam plastic float, or an incorrectly adjusted float (set too low). A trestricted fuel filter may also contribute to a rich fuel mixture.

My cub cadet sc 100 won't start after putting it on it's side to sharpen blade.


Since you put it on its side, you most likely dumped all the oil from the crank area to the cylinder and carburetor. What you need to do is check engine oil to be sure it is full. Then take air filter off, clean the carburetor with carb cleaner. Remove spark plug, clean spark plug with carb cleaner. Pull the cord about a dozen times WITH THE SPARK Plug removed. Then install spark plug and try to start.

Oil drain location on cub cadet rt65


How old is it? Lots of newer small engines don't have a drain plug. You tilt it on its side and let the oil run out the oil filler hole after removing the dip stick. I put a piece of plastic shopping bag over the gas tank hole and put gas cap back on to help keep gas from coming out. Good luck.

It sounds like it is very likely you have gas in the oil. This happens when the needle valve in the carburetor is leaking gas thru and into the crankcase. That will have to be repaired and the oil needs to be completely drained and refilled before running. Another thing can be done as a temp fix and that is to place a fuel (gas) shutoff in the line and turn off when not running but the oil has to be changed. Hope this helps you.

My Cub Cadet oil light was on it read 100 hours


Yes, you overfilled it with oil. Drain the oil and fill to the correct level. If you are not sure how much to put in, add small amounts until the dipstick shows a full reading.
