Question about Mtd Garden

1 Answer

I have an MTD Auto Drive Lawn Tractor Model 608 with a Briggs & Stratton engine. When I start it, blueish-white smoke comes out the exhaust in the front; and get worse when I engage the blades. When I checked the oil stick, smoke came out of the receptacle. What might it be?

Could be serious, such as a broken ring or valve issue. Also, could be relatively minor. Might have gas seeping into the crankcase. How full was the oil when checked? Did it look like it was thin and runny, like diluted with gas? If so, change it and put the correct amount of oil in the engine. Run some fuel line cleaner, such as gumout or SeaFoam in the gas tank (about 1/4 cup). That may help the issue of the gas flowing thru the carb and into the crankcase.

I have a craftman 42 inch silver lawn tractor and would like to change the oil what typpe do i use


Briggs & Stratton engines use 48 ounces of SAE 30 oil & Kolher engines use 2 quarts of 10w30 oi. Be sure not to over fill the engine will smoke like a banshee!! Verify the level with the dipstick. Oil can be gotten from Sears or from your favorite auto parts store.

Go to the Briggs & Stratton web site. Put in the model, type, and code numbers off your engine. You can download the IPL (illustrated parts list), which will give you the part number of the seat - IF available. You can then order the part, but it will be a machine shop job to fit it.
