SOURCE: engin fogs the neiborhood with air filter on.

Sounds like it's pulling oil by the rings/valves -- the air filter is creating more suction. I would try a small amount of an oil additive for high mileage engines. Follow the mixing/proportion directions on the bottle. Sounds like this engine is "wearing out".

Have you checked the choke? Sounds like it might be stuck closed or partly closed.

Todd are you using fresh fuel and is it unleaded. The plug sounds as if it is coking due to burning something other than fuel. Also check the oil level.

John deere 445 96 w 22 horse kawasaki fuel injected starts fine runs but rough with raw exhaust gas new olugs new fuel &filter new oil

When it runs rough is it blowing dark smoke? This is a sign of running rich like a choke will do and can cause stalling especially when the motor is warmed up. If it is not blowing dark smoke it sounds like maybe your injectors are not working properly and it is not getting enough fuel through them under load. either way as an injected machine it sounds like injectors may be the culprit since youve taken care of some other issues. You might try running a heavy dose of an injector cleaner through it (I've had good results with lucas brand) and see if that helps. Otherwise, you might try to manually clean the injectors.

91 cressida running rough also blowing smoke nothing wrong with head gasket any clues??

white smoke would be a sign of a head gasket blue smoke is a sign of burning oil black smoke is a sign of a fuel problem so blowing smoke and rough running do a compression test and look for a weak cylinder

95 Courier with Mazda diesel is hard to start, runs rough, blows lots of blue smoke and won't go over 60kph in top gear

I'd get your injectors rebuilt, and tune up your injector pump. Run a little seafoam in the diesel tank, and in the oil. Should make it clear right up.

After I start the pressure washer,do i push the choke back in,or leave it on?because it was smoking a little bit when it was on and running.or is that normal?

You turn it off after is warmed up, if it is smoking some , depending how bad it is won't hurt, unless it is running rough or smokes bad. Then needs possibly light tune up. You know oil change, fuel filter, clean air filter.

Engine runs rough, burns tons of oil, and keps shutting down

Could be too much oil. Check oil livel and make sure that the oil is not too thin (gasoline in oil). Install new spark plug, add premium fuel in tank and start engine without the air filter (air filter could be dirty or soaked in oil). Run for a while to see if condition improves (no or less smoking). Replace air filter while the engine is running to see if it makes a difference in performance. If installing air filter had no effect, and engine continues to smoke most likely valve guides or rings are faulty. Hopefully it will clear up. Good luck

Car idles rough in park also runs rough in overdrive

Sometimes a rough idle like that is a fuel filter. As you've already done the plugs and wires the fuel filter would be my next bet.

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
