2005 Murray Select stalls after 5 seconds with white smoke
When I start my mower, it runs for 5 seconds with tons of smoke and oil coming out of the muffler. I can immediately start it again with the same results over and over. The fuel lines are clean. I took apart the carb and cleaned it with carb cleaner but it was already pretty clean.
I had a similar problem in the spring and I think it was water in the gas. At the time, I drained it all then and added new gas. It ran fine two weeks ago. The gas tank was essentially empty when I went to start it this week and I think it may be losing gas between mows. I got brand new gas to put in. Then this happened. I haven't tipped it on its side or anything.
Note: after letting it sit for an hour, it started and ran for a minute or two before dying. After that, it went back to dying after 5 seconds.
What could it be?
Es esta una buena pregunta?
