    We have two Fastrak Superduty 36" mowers both have the Kaw 17 hp Kai engines. The first one has blue smoke coming out of the muffler. The second one I guess you would call it engine surging it idles high and then low up and down. What is the problem with both can a person fix these or should they go to a dealer?

    Blue smoke? I look for oil consumption, maybe over filled? the up and down idle is signs of a lean mixture. possible dirt in the carb. a shadetree mechanic like me would start with some sea foam in that engines fuel system hoping to clean it up a bit..
