Customer Question

I have a cub cadet lawn tractor model number LTX-1042, 13wx91AS010, Oil appears to be leaking in the front onto the muffler. aside from tons of white smoke the engine eventually stops. although it restarts, until the smoke thickens and then it dies again ! I see a small amount of oil on the ground where I keep it parked. Do you think this is a repairable problem ?
