Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
You must have stored it with the spark plug end down. This has caused the oil to get by the rings and on top of the piston. Pull spark plug out and pull starter cord to clear excess oil , put plug back in . Check oil , start mower and let it run until the excess oil burns off and some of it may still be in the muffler. Mower is ok. Some body borrowed my mower and did this resulting in the same problem.

My name is Dane. Troy-Bilt says this mower has a 2 year warranty with a briggs engine. According to troy bilt, that engine is suppose to start in 2 pulls or they fix it for free. Take it to a local briggs dealer and get them to look at it. I would hate to have you try something and you void your warrenty somehow. Here's the link to the website.
Hope this helps you... Thanks....Dane
