Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Twin cylinder Kawasaki gas engine? Carburetor or fuel injected? What is the history? Just starting blowing white smoke? Is oil level correct, and not diluted with gas in the oil?

single cylinder gas carbureted just out of storage oil level is a little high
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
how do I fix this thing?
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 7 months ago

Check the oil for gas in the oil, or if it smells of gas. I would change the oil and filter and try it.
