What causes oil to come out of your lawn mowers muffler?

The problem I had was oil and gas flowed out the muffler on my snapper 11 hp lawn tractor. To fix it I had to drain the oil and get a new plug. The issue that caused it was I needed a shut off valve in the gas line to stop the gas frome running back into the engine and eventually getting into the oil causing it to gush out the muffler with a lot of smoke. It is an easy fix and it now runs as smooth as new. I hope this helps you

Why does white smoke come out of your muffler?

AnswerOne potential cause is too much gas. It may be running "rich". Your car may also be burning a little oil. White smoke is usually water or antifreeze. If you are loosing coolant from the radiator, it's probably a blown head gasket. If not, it is just condensation in the exhaust pipe that is evaporating as the pipes heat up. If the car is running too rich, the unburned gas will cause black smoke and burning oil smoke will be blue.

Can a hole in the muffler cause a car to smoke?

Just having a hole in the muffler won't cause smoke to form. Any smoke coming from an engine is caused by either environment changes (white smoke while engine is warming up), or an engine burning oil (blue smoke). Sometimes even a bad catalytic converter can cause smoke. The hole in the muffler simply gives the smoke a way out. Trying looking for external oil leaks or checking he oil level occasionally to see if it is burning oil. You may see water vapor is there is a hole in the muffler but it wouldn't last long once the muffler warms up and the moisture is burned off. She shouldn't see actual smoke unless there is a problem with the engine.

Can a car with white smoke coming from muffler pass an emisssions test?

NO!! White smoke indicates the burning of oil. The law says, "ANY smoke coming from the engine during any part of the test is grounds for failure." I've been an Emissions guy in Denver for 23 years. White smoke is oil. Black is gas (too rich). Black smoke can get pricey. White smoke is always pricey!!
