john deere lx255

steve harvey My John Deere LX255 started smoking quit running. I parked it and alot of oil has leaked out around the engine. Now it starts runs for a few seconds smokes and then quits. I have not changed the oil filter for years. I am going to change the oil filter and change he oil, but Im afraid to start it again. Any suggestions? Thank you for your help and time.
ponymare Its just paying you back for all the neglect it got.
Butch Change the air filter and see if that helps any.
If the smoke is white it may be unburnt fuel because of lack of air.

Butch I don't know how they vent the crankcase on that engine but make sure that system is clean also.
Could be part of the oil leak problem.
