SOURCE: John Deere Gx75, kawasaki 9hp motor- oil in carb!

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.

SOURCE: John Deere 445 pto will not start Smoke from

If smoke is coming from solenoid on rear top side of trans then internal windings are bad but usually it will blow the fuse.Remove plastic nut from solenoid,slide solenoid off shaft then engage PTO.If solenoid does not smoke slide screwdriver or something like it into solenoid and see if there is any Magnetic force.If smoke comes from deck check idlers and spindles for movement.Be sure to ckeck gearcase oil level on the deck.

SOURCE: blue smoke hard to start no power john deere

Sounds like you have a piston ring ring problem or valve guides worn. Both will cause blue smoke and hard to start. If you don't know how to do a leak down test then you'll have to give it to someone who does. The leak down test will determine if it's the rings or the valves. Also, check to make sure you don't have too much oil in crankcase

Good luck.

SOURCE: John Deere Gator XUV 2008 oil in gas

I know exactly the problem. I work for a John Deere dealership and have seen this problem before. It is called short-tripping. When a machine is first started, gas does leak into the cylinder and crankcase past the rings--normal--simulates leaving the choke on too long with a carburetor engine.. As the engine temperature rises, the gas in the oil is burned off and there really isn't a problem. When you take short trips or do not let the engine run to get it up to temperature, the gas in the crankcase does not get burned off and will accumulate over time. Make sure the machine is getting up to operating temperature and this could take up to 20 minutes if the ambient air temp is low. Feel free to e-mail at ericf@greensouth.com with further questions

I have a Brute Force 750, starts OK but runs rough after a few minutes, will start smoking a smelly black/gray smoke, and most recently some blue smoke.


When the head gasket fails on a liquid (water) cooled engine the typical smoke colour is white (steam) and that becomes rather underlined by the steady drop of the coolant level and often clear evidence combustion gas is leaking into the cooling system.

Smelly black/grey smoke tends to be produced by an over-fuelling condition such as a stuck choke or strangler or other cold starting aid or perhaps carburettor flooding.

Blue or blue/grey smoke is invariably engine oil burning but I suggest you ignore that until the black smoke problem is rectified and after a short time the blue smoke might also disappear. If it doesn't it could be related to the overheating but the black smoke probably wasn't caused by that...

My service light went on my tractor just after 25 hours of use.I put some oil in it. now I have a big cloud of grey smoke coming out of exhaust in front engine.


Your check engine/service light possibly came on to indicate a oil change due interval @ 25 hours.
Double check your engine oil level; it may be too full. If the oil level is over the full mark, drain off some of the oil in the engine so the crankcase oil level is between the add & full marks on the oil level dipstick. The grey smoke you're seeing is likely oil being burned off.
On a side note, I am assuming you replaced the engine oil with the same weight/viscosity oil that was previously in the engine or recommended by the manufacturer in your owner's manual.

Why is my john deere d140 having white smoke coming out of engine


If white smoke is also coming out of your exhaust oil is leaking past the piston rings into the combustion chamber and is being burned along with the fuel. If its not coming from the exhaust it may have been overfilled and oil could be leaking out and burning when it comes into contact with the engine.

The engine burns white-blue smoke.


i am guessing this is a gas engine on a farm tractor. White/blue smoke is usually a sign of burning oil. Depending on the color, it can also mean you are burning oil and water both. You could have bad rings, bad gaskets, or cracks in the head or block.
If there was a problem with too much gas from the carb, (flooding), then the smoke should be black.

97 kia sephia smokes when first starts, smells like exhaust smoke


Black smoke is fuel.
Blue is oil.
White is coolant / water.

Fuel is caused by timing and cold start system and requires some discussion to clarify.

Oil burning only on start is caused by failing rings on your cylinders. Oil then enters the combustion chambers and burns when you start the engine. If it continues to burn when running in particular when you accelerate it will also indicate ring/cylinder failure. It can also be from a failing head gasket where oil travels from the lubrication system into the combustion chamber. Some of the anti smoke additives available at the auto supply store do help.

I doubt you are seeing white as you say is smells like exhaust. White is coolant in the combustion chamber or exhaust system.


Hope this helps you.
