    Original i took it to the shop so they say there is nothing they can do and that was the owner telling me that,so went back home star posting here questions and reading a lot,i mean a lot ,and several people here help me,which i say thank you,i did 3 oil changes,put sea foam,and lucas additive to the gas, did not work,i start lookin it closer and i saw a few drops of oil coming out betwin the muffler and the engine so i got a rench and tigth it up and i can see the gasket going to dust i knew that was my problem,yeap i let it run for another 2 hrs while i went to do q job come back home and before a block away from the house i saw a cloud of smok and i say s***well i got to the drive way and i saw my neighbor burning leaves i say hollys went and see the mower and there it was running like a champ i even cut the grass just to even it up some .Now i have to order some gaskets so i can replace the one that is bad,to the mecanics out there how you call this problem?
