Honda 2hp smoking
Anyone have trouble with a Honda 2hp o/b burning oil? I admit, I changed (topped off) the oil just before this began, but it runs fine for 5 or 10 minutes, then dumps a TON of smoke and drops rpms and sputters for a while then recovers. I almost want to think I over filled the oil, but that darn "oil level window" is next to useless. (don't know what's wrong with an old fashioned dip stick?) Can over filling the oil cause this, or do I have a more serious seal issue? Of course, the one year warranty just ran out about a month ago.
Thanks for any advice or ideas.
