Burns a bit at start up and throttle up, really smokes when you shut off. I know it has to be repaired but was hoping to get through leaf season by just making sure it has plenty of oil....Got a feeling that is a bad idea to keep going and I will make things worse and run up a bigger repair bill. Seems to runs strong, so not sure if it is only rings. What advice to you have for an engine that is burning oil? Am I making things much worse?
