SOURCE: f-150 4.9 lt .once it starts, blowing heavy black smoke

Sounds like its flooding(excess fuel)Try squeezing the main fuel line enough to allow enough fuel through for engine to run smoothly if that improves running of engine either fuel pump needs replacement or pressure relief valve has failed or has no vacuum to activate it.Dirty or failing injectors can also cause your problem,try putting a can/bottle of injector cleaner in fuel tank to see if it improves running of engine.Air flow meter can also be an issue.A few potential reasons foryour problem and too hard to lock it down to a single cause without the vehicle being in front of me to do the appropriate tests so have just provided the basic causes and hope your able to take it from here and solve the problem.Good luck

SOURCE: coolant leak/head gasket

If you have a head gasket leaking, and your engine is blowing a white smoke from the exhaust pipe, then you're taking coolant/water into your piston/s.

After a heavy acceleration your pressure is forcing more coolant/water into your cylinders..but don't be fooled..water/coolant is also getting into your cylinder/s when you're driving slow too.

You should get the head gasket repaired as soon as you can, or the head gasket may very well let loose and then you get to deal with having the heads shaved if they warp from the heat.

Either really should get the gasket replaced soon.

if your oil level is to high it will do this. i would drain and refill the oil to oem specs slowly as not to overfill so it doesn't blow over the top of the piston.hope this helps

Look for a failure in the power supply section. You will need electronic experience or someone who has that.

If the fuse is glass and blows silvery inside thia means a direct short inside. SUSPECT the input rectifier or filter capacitor(s).

Do testing with a 100 watt light bulb in series with the hot side of the power cord to avoid blowing fuses.

SOURCE: kohler CV15S on a John Deere LT155 smokes alot. I

I also have a John Deere LT155 Garden Tractor, and 'I have issues with white smoke and cannot get it started. I have detected gas smell in the oil. Quick call to a JD service centre told me it was likely a head casket. If the smoke is white, then that is likely your problem.

My mower is blowing white smoke from around the front of the engine, what is the problem?

Sounds like coolant burning in the cylinder.. hopefuly it's the head gasket and not a cracked head. note* NEVER wash your mower with cold water when it's hot !! The only special tools you will need are a torque wrench and a wheel puller for the flywheel, magneto ( cord reel).

Kohler ch20s - The engine back fires through the carberator and seems to pessurize the crankcase - it blows the dipstick out as soon as it starts- well sorta starts. What could be wrong? There is very...

Yes it could be timing except for the fact that the dipstick is blowing out. I would look at one of two things. 1. the head gasket is blown internally allowing for compression to bypass into the oil sump. or 2. the rings are worn out or on wrong allowing the compression to leak into the oil sump
If you take it to a good dealer like they can perform a leakdown test and tell you very quickly what the problem is.
It might be worth purchasing a couple head gaskets and check. good luck
