Hi, Shane and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner left out too long.
2. Faulty spark plug.
3. Incorrect spark plug for the engine type or service.
4. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
5. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
6. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition coil.
