Hi,

It would generate smoke if there is too much oil is left in the filter. Check air cleaner and it would fix the issue.

Let me provide you with Service Manual ( Generic ) for all the Honda Engines.

The link would be :-

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi my 1999 Honda ace deluxe 750 blows blue smoke out exhaust when warmed up could it be valve adjustment


No that is either poor ring seal or loose valve guides, you need to rebuild the engine most likely.

Pentair minimax nt propane heater is blowing black smoke


is heater installed in a shed? how many btu's is your heater. You need 1 square inch per 1000 btu's for combustion air opening. Lack of combustion air will cause heater to under fire and produce carbon dioxide

Honda xr 250 blowing smoke


Hi, Anonymous your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on startup is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on startup may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on startup is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

Misfire and blowing black smoke


Hi Rick,

There is a number of problems,
1. You need to give the car a proper service. Change plugs, filters, brakes, all the oils.
2. clean the valve body with the flow sensors
The black smoke is most properly from the engine oil that is combusting. This will stop as soon as you have change the air filter.
3. make sure that the spark plug wires are in a good condition as well.

I have a similar Honda (with the overhead valves) that someone gave me because it didn't run at all. Turns out it had a stuck open exhaust valve. I got it unstuck and changed the oil. After running it about an hour, the valve stuck again. I think this is an inherent problem with these engines. I cleaned up the valves really well and lubricated them. Then I put a high quality synthetic (actually motorcycle racing) oil in it and have been running it for a year now with no problems. Not sure what your issue is, but with stuff blowing out of the exhaust and loss of power, I'd pull the valve cover off (prop up the front of the mower and you can do this without losing any oil). Check your valves and give them a good cleaning. They may not be seating properly, which would cause the symptoms you describe. I'm just an amateur, but I'm learning every day! Hope this helps and best of luck to you Lou.

Fuses keep blowing out


IF water is not going in the drum It sounds like the water valve coil has finally failled , It has been blowing fuses ,because the ccoil on the water valve was getting weak . change this water valve and you sohould be ok , but before doing so chaeck to see if you have the proper voltage going to this valve when It is calling to open ,if the power is there and the water is turned on the valve should be letting water in the machine . you can also take a ohm meater and check the valve for proper resistance . . If the machine is up in years I would change this valve . from the chack I mentioned earlier . hope this helps you
