    I just purchased a new JX75 from the dealer. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen?
    I drove down a road that replaced some asphalt after sewer work. Very ruff and undulating. Been down it twice and both times the mower smokes for a minute after start up, smells like oil. Plus it had already ran through 6 other lawns so it was warm.
    Is the oil getting splashed into the upper cylinder? It has only happened after bouncing down that section of road.

    Thanks for any input.
