Some of the problems that you’ll probably be able to fix on your own, include: Overheating: Clogged cooling fins may be the cause of this. Check for things like debris, which may be what is preventing the engine from cooling.. Smoke: This may just be as a result of a clogged air filter and that actually results in the pulling of engine oil past the rings of the piston. That’s what causes the oily smelling cloud of smoke to puff out of the engine. All you have to do is replace the air filters and inspect the pistons. That should fix the problem but if it doesn’t, then you should get it fixed.. Bumpy ride: A lack of oil may be the cause of this. Check it and change it – do this regularly.. Unable to start up: This could be possible a result of three things; a bad spark plug, a faulty starter or a dirty carburetor. Check the spark plug with a spark plug tester and a test the starter with an ohmmeter. Take a look at the carburetor if it still isn’t starting up. There may also be a problem with clogs in the engine due to fuel staying in the engine for very long. Drain it out and clean out the carburetor..
