Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
Some times when running a large puff of white smoke will come out of the tailpipe and the motor will slow down.
I noticed tonight that when trying to start (and had no luck) that the round cylinder next to the motor (I believe to be the oil filter) got smoking hot why trying to turn the motor over.
The mower has both gas and oil.
It is a Toro Timecutter 42.16Z about six years old, and I can't find the owners manual to attempt any work.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.
Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

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.

SOURCE: When engaging the deck mower
have you removed the sediment bowl located on the bottom of the carburetor and looked to see if there is a lot of dirt and gunk in the bowl,then while this bowl is off there will be a float (metal or plastic) make sure theres a good supply of gas running out of here where the bowl would normally be,if not,then it could be a plugged needle seat or port in your carb and will need to be cleaned
