I'm having trouble figuring out what is making my 216 backfire. The trouble started about mid summer and has gotten progressively worse. I can't even mow a single strip of lawn without having issues. It does seem to be worse under load then just sitting with no load on it. If I remember correctly, I did run the engine a bit low on oil this spring and it got a bit hot, but I'm not sure if that would effect it or not. My next step is the John Deere repair center, but I hope it may be something simple that a few adjustment may take care of. Grass cutting season is over, but I would like to get the 216 ready for the snowblower so any help would be appreciated.
