Mower smoking and running rough

My John Deere riding mower ran out of gas so after I filled up and started it, white smoke came billowing out from under the hood. It was also running rough.

Check the gas you put in, it sounds like it had water in it.

Wont run and emits white smoke


Hi Jeremy:
Sounds like there is still diesel in the fuel system.
There will be a plug on the bottom of the carb.
If you unscrew it and allow it to drain, it will flush the carb.
I'd suggest changing the fuel in the tank again.
You may also need to change the spark plug.
You won't have damaged the engine.
Cheers.

J power and smokes white


Possibly a head gasket problem (as the head heats up it warps slightly, allowing coolant to seep into the cylinders, which is the source of the white smoke--steam) Is the motor using coolant?

Hello my name is John. I have a 345 John Deere lawn tractor. The problem is that it starts idles rough won't idle up and does not run strong enough to move the mower. It just chugs and puffs white smoke...


345's have a habit of the choke sticking at the carb.Another problem they have is the fuel pump diaphram will crack and allow your engine to fill up with fuel,to much fuel in crankcase will end up past the rings when not running and smoke pretty bad when fired up.

Billows of white smoke when Toro lawn mower runs


You overfilled the oil. If the mower runs, just go ahead and mow grass until it runs the oil out of the gas tank. Or you can empty the gas tank and fill with new gas. White smoke is not a serious problem. Only a hassle.

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.
