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

Blue smoke


Blue smoke (how many miles on engine, 50k or 500K???????
to some this means, burning oil, others steam
it that blue smoke lingers a long time that is oil burning
and smells just like oil burning.
and means 2 things,
1: engine burns oil.
2: if car had autotmatic trans the vacuum modulator love fail
and suck ATF fluid to the intake plenum and burn it, and bingo burning oil like mad.
3: PCV valve packed solid,and forces engine to leak oil or burn oil. or both. this is a 50k miles service point, skipping this?
4: gas in the oil making it thin and not sneaks past valve stems.
does oil change cure this.>?

now engines.
worn out engines smoke. (burn oil)
as do bad valve guides and seals.
and bad piston rings.
100 years same story, and miles matter. History on engine too.
matters.

White smoke from BMW 740i exhaust


white were? the exhaust tip, or other spot, long pipe, name spot?
white, is steam or OIL.
oil smells like burnt oil and takes for ever to dispate
steam is water, and smells , sweet due to 50% glycol inside.
and goes away fast.
but all Gas engines make water at all the time running as a by product of combustion and for sure on cold days, some times full time cold
due to climate effects.
does your neighbors car smoke at same time, (look)
bingo , dew point.

all gas engine smoke cold started, (steam)

so first find out what it is,
take the dip stick out of a hot engine. stalled, drip it on the exhaust
see that smoke ,smell it? that is burning oil
now you know what you have, steam or oil. smoke.

When making a turn car saputters and blows a cloud of white smoke


Sorry to tell you this is most like a head gasket leak, or a crack in engine cylinder head. The white smoke is usually anti-freeze burning. When the motor heats up the metal expands and can plug the leak. Do a search on you tube for Scotty Kilmer He has some good videos and information on head gasket leaks. It's usually very expensive to repair mechanically, but he suggests some sealants. If the leak is not too bad the sealant may work. Some cars are notorious for bad head gaskets.

The other thing it may be is oil burning if it's more of a blue gray smoke. When the car sits overnight, on older cars if the valve seals leak, some oil can may accumulate down into the engine cylinder. When the car starts this burns off. If a piston in the motor has a broken ring it can continue to smoke.

The best way to determine your problem is to check the levels of antifreeze and motor oil when the car is cold. Do NOT try to check the antifreeze when the car is hot, or you can get sprayed with hot antifreeze. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 4.7 V-8. It burns oil aprox 1 Qt a week. The driver told me she sees white smoke from the exhaust when the A/C is on. I did not think the problem was related to...


I think, the bearing of the A/C unit jam and putting extra load on the engine or the belt that connects to the engine has dried out. Logically, A/C has no direct connection with the engine exhaust.

CHUCKS OUT CLOUDS OF BLUE SMOKE.


Blue Smoke: Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with the white smoke, just a small drop of oil leaking into the cylinder can produce blue smoke out the tailpipe. Blue smoke is more likely in older or higher mileage vehicles than newer cars with fewer miles.

How did the engine oil get inside the cylinder in the first place? The car has many seals, gaskets, and O-rings that are designed to keep the engine oil from entering the cylinder, and one of them has failed. If too much oil leaks into the cylinder and fouls the spark plug, it will cause a misfire (engine miss) in that cylinder, and the spark plug will have to be replaced or cleaned of the oil. Using thicker weight engine oil or an oil additive designed to reduce oil leaks might help reduce the amount of oil leaking into the cylinder.

Car smokes in the mornings and a little when cruising.


What color is the smoke? if it is blue or grey in color and smells like burning oil then it is oil. If it is light white then it is just condensation and nothing to worry about. But if it is extremely white and smells very sweet then it is coolant.

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.

My 93 maxima got no power an smoke started to come out the tail end.


The best test is a compression test.
Blue smoke means it's burning oil, due to worn out piston rings.
White smoke means it's mixing antifreeze and oil due to a bad head gasket or cracked head or block.
