Has fuel with oil accidentally been mixed to the fuel for this mower? We have had mix oil accident get added it to this lawn mower and it will smoke a lot with 2 cycle oil.

Unless you are certain no oil is mixed with the fuel I would drain and clean the fuel system.
Replaced the spark plug with the new and replace the air filter In addition ensure you do and oil change every 30 hours using a high grade 30 wt oil to include make sure it is not over full.

Hope this tip helps.

Smoke generally means you have too much oil to fuel ratio in your mix. Mix per manufacturer 50/1 exactly and try again.

1991 Honda Accord, 213k, changed oily sparkplugs and now engine blows excessive smoke and oil continuously out the exaust from start up to shut down.


Old spark plugs were likely fouled with oil and not burning fuel (and oil) completely so minimal smoke before change out. New plugs are clean and burning everything in cylinders well including oil (therefore more smoke). If smoke from exhaust is blue, then engine oil is getting into cylinders either through worn out piston rings, or a leaking gasket. If black smoke, then this is a sign of too much fuel getting into cylinders and not all the fuel is getting burnt during combustion (a fuel system problem).

Engine runs good but white smoke comming out of exaust oil good water good


I would guess you have a blown headgasket. Do a Compression test one should be low.
Burning antifreeze makes a lot of white smoke.

Why is my motor oil coming out my tail pipe?


Bad Piston,Bad rings,bad valve seals,Cracked cylinder head.cracked block. Don't forget now there is a lot of suction and compression going on in a motor. If any of the above are happening in an engine the suction will pass oil through a bad piston or rings or any of the above and cause Blue smoke and spit oil out the exaust along with blue smoke.

97 Nisson pickup smoking white smoke (a lot)


this indicates that you have a blown head gasket. you may not have water in the oil pan but it's because the water is not leaking into your oil galleys,but instead leaking into the cylinders and being burned hence the white smoke.. there is a big myth that you will get water in the oil with a blown head gasket . there might be trace amounts but the only time you get water in the oil is if the heads crack or the block cracks othere wise most times it's just getting burnt in the cylinders,hence the great amount of white smoke. please rate this thanks.
