Turned mower on and think it was oil spurting out of it. Started smoking. Filter has oil on it. If I change the filter and the oil do you think that will solve the problem? Thanks for a good answer!

Yes the sump has become diluted with fuel. Change the oil replace or clean the filter and fit an online fuel tap to turn off when the mower is not in use. Regards Phil

Kohler engine oil leak


Could have blown a seal however before checking for that I would check the drain plug and filter seating if you changed the filter. Make sure the drain plug is not cross threaded. You can run a little low but should never over fill. Hope this will help. Most of the time if over filled you will get some smoke as well.

Black smoke is generally indicative of a rich fuel system. whitish blue smoke is generally burning oil.
It sounds like there is something wrong with the fuel metering at full throttle. You might check that the mechanical compression release isn't coming on when you go to full throttle.

Your mower should definitely have an air filter whether it is paper or foam, and you should drain the oil from the bottom, not turning it over. turning it over can get oil in places where it shouldn't be and make it smoke or not run at all. It may need carburetor cleaning and spark plug cleaning or replacement, or the flywheel key may be sheared if it runs rough

Brand new weed eater lawn mower blowing white smoke.


Pull air filter see if theres any oil in it,make sure the oil isnt overfilled. Push mowers usually smoke like that if theyre overfilled,or tipped on thier side,if there is oil in filter simply take filter off,drain oil to correct level,and run it till smoke goes away. If none of this is the problem rings are probably shot. Weedeater is a cheap brand and theyre made cheap too,not made to last.

Oil leaking from air filter area of push mower and mower smoking


You have overfilled the oil tank. White smoke is only a hassle, not a serious problem. You have to empty some of the oil and change the gas. Clean the air filter if it is the spongy type with Dawn Dishwashing Liquid, rinsing and drying it well before reinstalling. The white smoke will stop soon as it is still in the gas that is in the carb. If the case is that you haven't filled it with oil prior to this smoke then you must be mowing on a hillside and the gas tank was on the lower side allowing oil to leak into the gas. Same solution.
