    Did you put oil in gas? If so drain gas , put gas and no oil in gas tank. If not could be head gasket. If it is 2 cycle oil and gas is mixed wrong.

If you spilled any oil on the engine, it will smoke for a few good minutes until it burns off.

Or, you may want to check the air breather. It may be dirty.

I have a Briggs stratton 14 hp ohv I/c quiet model 287707. I had a guy change the oil & he put 10W30 synthetic oil in it. Now it smokes white smoke really bad. I think he put the wrong oil in


There is a very real difference between 30W and 10W30 oil. Whether it's synthetic or not probably doesn't matter. If you have the literature that came with the mower, it will tell you the recommended engine oil.
If they put in the wrong oil, they should make it right. You shouldn't have to pay twice for an oil change. It could be burning oil, since 10W30 is a lower viscosity than 30W. I would have them change it again, and see if it stops smoking.

Have a troy bilt trimmer mower 5hp that is at least 10+ years old. very hard to pull start, when it does start it chugs about 5 seconds, and dies. like the spark plug really never gets it fired up. also...


you could have several problems with your engine . one it could be off timing it could have a sherd flywheel key or you could have a stuck ring or bad rings also a scored wall.. white smoke is oil if you have tipped it over you have to let the oil burn out of the cylinder if you believe its your plug take the plug out and clean it off with some gas and a soft wire brush and put it back in see what happens .

Engine started smoking real bad, it still starts


Could be just a head gasket, also could be rings. Could also be oil in the gas or bad gas overall. Empty out the gas, change the oil, and try again. If it does the same thing take it to service shop.

Lawn boy 2 cycle that smokes


Check the air breather. Make sure it is clean.

If it is clean, you will probably need to replace the diaphragm. A bad diaphragm will cause black smoke and also cause the mower to run erratically.

Billows of white smoke when Toro lawn mower runs


You overfilled the oil. If the mower runs, just go ahead and mow grass until it runs the oil out of the gas tank. Or you can empty the gas tank and fill with new gas. White smoke is not a serious problem. Only a hassle.

Lawn mower engine runs rough and puts out white smoke


Pull the carburetor and clean it for staters.Be sure to change oil any little bit of moisture in the crankcase will let it smoke white by seeping by the valves and piston rings.Also put a little small amount of dry gas in the gas tank to rid all of the water that may have been left in the tank. I some of this will help you.
