Lawn mower smoking

bjmunroeMarch 21, 2010

Hello.. I have a Toro lawn mower, and just took it out of stoe=rage and tuned it up, I noticed my son stored it standing on front wheel all winter, there was oil on deck under it, so when i stared it, white smoke comes out , seems to clear up after few min,,,the lawn mower is only 2 years old ????

Thank you in advance

The combustion chamber filled with oil, the smoke should clear after being run for a while. Replace the air filter if the pleated type, if foam wash the filter in soapy water rinse thoroughly then apply a light coating of motor oil. Work the oil into the foam, squeeze the excess out and re install.

Don't forget to check the oil! Leave the mower on its wheels in storage. To look or work under the deck, always tilt up the side with the carburetor. You'll notice that the oil fill/drain is on the other side from the carb - this is so oil can be drained without getting oil in the intake side.
