SOURCE: Lawn mower engine runs rough and puts out white smoke

Pull the carburetor and clean it for staters.Be sure to change oil any little bit of moisture in the crankcase will let it smoke white by seeping by the valves and piston rings.Also put a little small amount of dry gas in the gas tank to rid all of the water that may have been left in the tank. I some of this will help you.

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton engine on Murray lawn mower

I always replace the air filter if its a paper element, and even if its a foam element I replace it rather than clean it. That said, engine stumbling is rarely and air flow problem - but it could be, so having a new filter assures no air restrictions.

I would drop the carbuerator bowl. On the bottom of the carb, near where the fuel line comes into the engine, should be a nut. Removing this nut allows the bowl to drop off the carb. Some engines the bowl screws off, you will have to look at the bowl. Often the bowl has sediment or sludge buildup inside. Cleaning the bottom of the bowl can prevent that sludge/sediment from plugging the intake tube. Even on newer mower models this is a common problem, the gas line tubing interior breaks down and the inside of the tubing can start degrading - ending up in the bowl as sludge.

After cleaning the bowl, I would add one ounce of fuel line cleaner to a full tank of fuel and run the entire tank of fuel. This will clean any deposits or "varnish" from the interior carb parts. Doing this and the first step will assure your carb is clean and functioning.

If that doesn't help, then I would look at the spacing between the magneto and coil assembly. If you want to do that I'd like you to write down all the model numbers and serial numbers on the engine nameplate, that way I can give you specific directions.

Hope this helps,
Gregg

Dont have the manual in front of me...recollect that there's two types of warnings. The pulsating warning is oil (starts with 30 minutes of oil left) or the fuel filter (or sperator, something like that) may have water in it. Running outboard with cover off, is a little black box that would have a red light lit if that's the case. If oil full & no red light, may be oil injection system...would also check to make sure lines aren't pinched, etc. Mine has been specific to oil the two times its gone off.

The full non-pulsating is engine overheat. Not sure beyond that.

Not much, but hopefully gets you going.

Hi if it is older than 2 years it will need a new diaphram and gasket under carby you will also need to clean out the fuel bowl in the top of the tank this should fix your problem.

1998 1150412UD Mercury Outboard - is it 2 or 4 stroke


If it has an oil compartment, it has to be a two stroke. There is a rough and ready way to check. A four stroke engine has a compression stroke on every four strokes, whereas a two stroke has compression stroke on EVERY upward stroke of the piston. Remove the spark plugs, and turn the engine until you see the piston. Put your finger over the plug hole and turn the engine one revolution. Do you get compression? Keep turning, do you get suction and then compression again. If so it is a two stroke.

you can also follow the pipes from the oil tank and see where they go to? Yours should have a pipe from the pump to the carburetor inlet manifold.

On a new boat though, my advice for you is to take the boat and engine to a marine engineer for a service. The cost is minimal and you will get everything set up for the season, especially the carbs. You can ask lots of questions. The cost is about $150 and is well worth the piece of mind that you are not going to break down.

The critical bit you have missed from your post is the HP. If you Google

Mercury HP Serials

and you will end up at a site with engine details. Then google the same, but manual instead of serials. If you know the year of the boat, add that before 'Mercury'.

Use Evinrude XD50 two stroke oil. It is expensive but the best in clean running, non fouling and lack of acrid fumes. One $48 jug will last a season and a bit if you go out twice a week as I do. My boat goes to the marina on Wednesday :>)

My 50 ho 4 storke was stored for over a year it started like a dream and idles great but when you advance the throttle to mid range it seems to de tune and misses like crazy until you bring her back d


It sounds like the high speed passages in the carb are gummed up. If you have not done so already, you should probably rebuild the carb.

While idling, the engine sputters. check engine light on, reading misfire in cylinder four. Have replaced both coils, all wires, and all plugs. Still no help. I've come to a dead end. Anybody with ideas?.


Hi, this may be a dirty injector. Try putting some injector cleaner in the gas tank to see if that will clear it up. If not, you may need to pull up the fuel rail and check the injector flow pattern.

Cant find oil tank


most pedestrian mower engines do not have an oil tank,if it is a four stroke engine you will find a filler plu with level gauge either beside top of engine or near base,unscrew cap and fill to level on dipstick mark.
if it is a two stroke engine you will have to premix your fuel with a quality two stroke oil(most are either 25 parts fuel to 1 part oil or 50 parts fuel to 1 part oil(the fuel tank cap may have raised lettering telling you this),hope this is of help
