Question and Answers

Q:

My lawn mower is hard to start. When it does start it blows a cloud of smoke then cuts off after 3 secs. Whats wrong?

A:

I assume since your engine does start, it has spark to the spark plug.

The carburetor on your engine is probably stopped up or has bad gasoline in it. Be sure the gas in the tank is no more than 4 weeks old.

If the gas if fresh the carburetor needs to be cleaned and rebuilt or replaced.
