mower maintenance after 5 years maintenance free

weve a 2005 exmark metro 32" 15 hp kawasaki walk behind belt driven thats ran flawless since new

we just change oil / filter / plugs / sharpens blades / grease and it just keeps on running perfect

but here at 5 years its starting to blow oil out of exhaust when first start up for like 15 seconds

so im wondering what general maintenance people would perform here at 5 years and if any specific diagnosis for the oil smoke

ps - this 32" isnt heavily ran as we do all residential and just run the 32 in backyards we cant get our bigger exmarks in . so its a babied machine we NEVER beat
