There’s smoke coming from my engine!
This might look a little scary, but it’s usually not serious. Your lawn mower’s engine can smoke if your oil tank is overfilled, or if oil leaked into the exhaust muffler when you tilted your mower to the side. It’s simply burning off while the engine is hot. But if you’re seeing heavy black smoke, plus have trouble keeping your mower running, it’s best to give our advisors a call, as this is indicative of a bigger problem.
