Have you ever wondered why it is that at times, when you go to cut the lawn, that your lawnmower acts a little strange? As there are numerous reasons for the engine to cough and sputter like a three-pack a day smoker, there happens to be one very easy and simplistic fix and that is what we are going to discuss today.
Briggs and Stratton Small Engine Repair is a resource that we created to help you with your engine dilemmas. There is something that you can do when the engine sputters and spits out grey or blackened smoke from the muffler. We sincerely hope that it is only the grayish white smoke and not the black smoke that is normally indicative of a bigger problem.
Let’s assume that you have a sputtering engine problem with a Command Kohler Engine model. When you start the engine, it does run, but the running is not what it used to do and the sound coming from the engine is pointing to an ignition coil issue.
Replacing the ignition coil is a good start and this one action could solve your sputtering engine problem and not cost you an ‘arm and a leg’. What normally happens is that when the coil is warming up and the wires are then expanding, they are then shorting out and causing the engine to sputter and chug.
We hope this helps!
Have a great day!
