Additionally, what causes a riding mower to smoke? While black smoke is caused by the burning of more fuel than air, blue or white smoke is generally caused by the burning of excess oil. Often times this color of smoke is caused by a blown head gasket, a worn cylinder or worn rings, or an inoperative crankcase breather, all of which will need help from a professional.
Similarly one may ask, why is white smoke coming out of my lawn mower?
Mower tipped over is the most common reason for white smoke. Usually, the customer turns over the mower to clean the deck or unclog the chute. This allows oil to enter the cylinder, and when the mower is restarted, the oil burns and turns your yard into a 70s disco. Sometimes oil will also leak from the muffler.
