Question about Mtd Yard - Man 160cc, 21" Self - Propelled Lawn Mower
I think my son ran it when the damp grass had clogged up outlet. It started smoking and tied, I looked and seemd like out leaking out the muffler. Let site for a while and cranked up and the smoke was bluish and was intense. Started leaking again. Someone please help. Briggs and stratton motor
I have a yardman lawn mower that is two years old. It is now blowing oil out the exhaust and also blue smoke. Any idea what is wrong?

Was it turned upside to unclog it. if so check to make sure proper oil level and start it up and the smoke should clear in a minute or two

Suggested answer number 3 is the most likely problem. If you decide to turn any vertical engine on a mower I suggest you never tilt it to clean it with the airfilter box pointing down towards the ground. Always remove spark plug before doing this as a safety thing. The best way to clean a laen mower is to turn on the garden hose and simply spray the water under the shroud. That will cause the water to agitate in under and blow excess grass out the blower chute.Remove the bag if its a rear or side bagger and stand back.

Check your oil level to start with. If overfilled ,drain some out. If not over filled the mower could have been turned on its side causing oil to get in the crankcase breather and then forced into the air filter box . Check your air filter if its full of oil remove it and start the mower up and it will quit smoking in a few minutes,install new air filter n start mowing
