SOURCE: Third season, fresh gas, oil changed, starts fine, runs fine, throws fine, but every once in a while belches blue smoke. Should I be concerned?

Would this be a mower by any chance rather than a Car or Truck?

Mowers do that, because they are high revving and periodically oil shoots past the oil ring if it is a 4 stroke, or on a two stroke oil builds up in the bottom of the crankcase and gets thrown up into the combustion chamber every now and then. Try not to rev it too hard.

Blue smoke is burning oil.

  • Overfilling the crankcase with oil
  • Incorrect grade of oil
  • Inoperative crankcase breather
  • Crankcase air leak
  • Blown head gasket
  • Worn or damaged cylinder and/or ring
  • Worn valve guide

Tip

Winterizing


All you out there with lawn and garden tools that have gas motors, just wanted to remind you that they need to be winterized. In the spring we dont want to have problems with our equipment stalling, not starting, or even blowing up.When I know I wont be using my equipment for months at a time I do the following to make sure my equipment will remain in good working order for years to come without me becoming frustrated after they have been stored and then cause me time and trouble by not starting or creating other issues and wasting my time.To winterize 1st drain all the fuel from the tank and pull/crank motor till all old gas is out of line and replace fuel filter if possible.2nd drain oil if possible3rd remove oil filter if it has one4th install new oil filte5th re install oil plugBut DO NOT add oil till NEW season6th make sure gas bulbs are lubricated so they will not crackMake sure all debris is removed and all screws are secure.This is the basics for more in depth information you should always read the OWNERS manual.Next year when you are ready all you need to do is add oil, gas/gas-oil mixture and your set for the season for the most part.

220.brigs and Stratton oil how much insump


A small qt bottle of SAE 30 wt oil, of ANY brand is fine for use in lawnmowers. The tolerances for the piston ring and cylinder are not so close to warrant more expensive synthetic blends. A simple std grade (cheapest) 30 wt is fine. It is a good practice to drain and refill your lawnmower engine before each cutting season, replace the air filter, and spark plug. Carburetors tend to foul so empty the gas tank at the end of each cutting season by letting the mower run out of gas... empty the float bowl, if it has a drain screw... this will keep varnish and gum from forming when you store it. Keep a spare cord on hand as they break when you least expect them to and when you need to use the mower. Hardware stores sell replacement cord, just cut to lengths as needed.

Why does my Troy Bilt Pony Mower deck keep running after it is disengaged


-The belt is too tight. It should be free when the engine is running.
-Adjust it. It'll take care the problem. (I'll say it'll need about 3/4" to 1 1/2 clearance)

Good luck

Mower starts but wont keep going.it has petrol and oil,it had carberetta serviced last year.


You might have the same problem as had last year, did you burn all the old gas out last year before storing for season? If not you will have to drain old out and probably remove and clean your carbureator it probably gummed or varnished up from old gas, hope this helps you
