I only use 10w30 in my shop, and also have you checked to see if they over filled the crankcase with oil. The dipstick must pe pushed or screwed all the way in to check the oil..

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.

TRACTOR WILL NOT STAY RUNNING


Give it a tune-up, spark plug, oil change, fuel filter, air filters... Drain gas completely from gas tank and carburetor... Fill with fresh fuel. White smoke from muffler means there is water in the system... Fuel "goes bad" as soon as 1 month.

I have a Simplicity model 1692762 with a 16hp Briggs and Stratton. The mower blew large plume of white smoke three times while cutting grass over a period of 10 minutes. Engine seemed to lose some power...


I suspect an internal engine issue such as a valve, the white smoke was oil and it could mean a bent, burned valve or damaged valve seat causing the valve stem seal to leak allowing the engine to **** some oil and burn it (the white smoke) and now you lack compression. It is less likely but possible the oil was overfilled and you "lipped" the piston which causes the compression to drop. check the compression, 100-120 is normal, less than that means bad internal parts.

Oil leaking from air filter area of push mower and mower smoking


You have overfilled the oil tank. White smoke is only a hassle, not a serious problem. You have to empty some of the oil and change the gas. Clean the air filter if it is the spongy type with Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, rinsing and drying it well before reinstalling. The white smoke will stop soon as it is still in the gas that is in the carb. If the case is that you haven't filled it with oil prior to this smoke then you must be mowing on a hillside and the gas tank was on the lower side allowing oil to leak into the gas. Same solution.

Engin fogs the neiborhood with air filter on.


Sounds like it's pulling oil by the rings/valves -- the air filter is creating more suction. I would try a small amount of an oil additive for high mileage engines. Follow the mixing/proportion directions on the bottle. Sounds like this engine is "wearing out".

TRACTOR BLEW WHITE SMOKE, AND STARTS TO SPUTTER


Start with making sure your oil lever is not over full. If it is it may be getting into the crankcase breather hose that goes to the carburetor hence the white smoke. Sometimes also you can blow a gasket in the breather system and it will do the same. Check for oil leaks in the breather system. Hope this helps. donnyb60
