When i mow a hill or thick grass it will blow white smoke and then it will quit


The mower decides how much fuel to use depending upon rpm. When it hits a tough patch rpm goes down and the throttle opens up. In this case the throttle opens too far and the engine floods producing the white smoke. The plug is temporarily fouled out and the engine quits. After the gas evaporates the plug will operate normally again.

14.5hp B&S ohv looses powes & blows white smoke on riding mower


This engine has a badly designed combustion head that causes premature failure of the head gasket. The removal of the overhead cam and head is relatively easy with the engine mounted on the mower. Just remove the hood before you begin. I had the same problem, same symptoms (white oil smoke, mostly when turning or on an inclide-=left side downhill) after the second season of mowing. Made me mad when I got it apart and saw the incredibly stupid head design. Replaced the head gasket and am into my second season with the new head gasket with no more problems but I expect it to blow again at some point. Poor engine design. Easily fixed.

Black smoke from exhaust


hi nishga
im dave; hope i can help

First you need to determine if it is actually black smoke or if it is blue smoke. There are three colors of smoke that can come from the tailpipe. It is not white smoke obviously because that is easily differentiated from blue or black and generally indicates water or antifreeze leaking past the head gasket and into the compression area of the motor. White smoke is the steam of the water/antifreeze being emitted

Blue smoke is caused by engine oil entering the cylinder area and being burned along with the fuel air mixture. As with 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. 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 plugs, 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.

Black smoke is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot be completely burned. Another term for excess fuel is "running rich". Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a heavy fuel odour in the engine compartment. Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that is out of adjustment which is not likely unless you have installed an aftermarket carburated system on your non-carburated car, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a faulty engine computer or emissions sensor. If black smoke is present, check the engine oil to make sure excess fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Check the above mentioned systems and after detecting the trouble replace the faulty parts and then the engine oil and filter.
