Smell the motor oil for gas.White smoke and oil comming from the exhast are both classic symptms of the fuel inlet needle in the carb.stuck open.If this is the case,I bet the air filter is drenched too.You'll have to disassemble and soak the carburetor in chem-dip to clean.Be sure to take all the rubber and plastic parts out first.This is some strong acid and can burn skin/eyes,safty pervention is strongly recomended.
