Your exhaust pipe actually exits from the front of your mower you most likely need an oil change. have them check your head seals as well.

Too much oil, that happened to me when I went up a slope. I drained some out and it solved that problem, Remember to check the dipstick to see that the oil levels are correct.

Continues blowing out white smoke after I start the lawn mower


Hik marie carten...
Normally white smoke coming out of the exaust will me one of two things.
You have overfilled the crankcase with too much oil and it is making the smoke, in which case you can drain the excess oil out and that should elimanate the white smoke.
Or, you have a worn out engine and oil is getting by the rings of the piston and being burnt in the combustion chamber of the engine.Which means engine overhaul, or buy a new mower.

What would cause white smoke from the front of my


It could be your valves. My friends mower was blowing a lot of smoke and I think some oil. I replaced the valves and it runs like a dream.
I can't remember the steps to remove and replace, sorry.
If you are mechanically inclined it shouldn't be that hard. The only problem I has was the new valves (keeper or whatever holds them in place) was different than the old one.
You could call a repair shop and get an estimate.
Good luck. Let me know if this any help.
