Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I have a Toro GTS 6.5HP Self Propel Gas Lawn Mower and it was running fine but it started acting up so i had to pu in new oil. i started it up again and it started spitting of clouds of smoke. it died so i tried starting it again and after pulling the starter rope for the 120th time it started again and i started cutting the grass and the smoke(which was white) puffing out little clouds every time i went across the more bumpy part of the lawn. all of a sudden it died and wont start back up. it will turn and the engine will go for a few seconds but it wont really start up.
Sound as if you have too much oil in the machine. Anytime you see white or lite gray smoke it is a sign of too much oil. Before you go through the routine of cleaning the oil out of every nook and cranny, try unscrewing the spark plug and clean it with a soft rag. It would have oil on it preventing the machine from starting. If this does work and there isn't a lot of oil in the gas tank now, just continue running the engine until the smoke clears. It won't hurt anything. But if cleaning the plug doesn't help you will have to empty all gas and oil from the gas tank, refill with new gas, squirt a little gum out carb cleaner in your carb to remove any oil there (this can be done when you try to restart the engine). Remember, when you are mowing grass if you are mowing on a hill) of any knd, make sure to turn the mower so the gas tank is on a higher level than the oil.
