Question about Garden
I have a Centura 3.5 Tecumseh lawn mower. It sat unused for a couple of years. Today, I filled it with gas (the tank had been completely emptied last time it was used) and it finally started up. After mowing for about 15 minutes, the engine quit. And white smoke began emitting from it. :( You could hear a bubbling/boiling noise coming from it and I decided it was best to leave it cool down. Any ideas? Was the gas "boiling"? Why would this happen? What do I need to do? Please help, thank you!

If the oil level is too high smell the oil to see if it has gas in it. If it does the carb needs to be cleaned and the oil changed.
