Toro powerlite 98cc white smoke

Hello I have a toro powerlite 98cc when I start it white smoke comes out and then it stalls. I changed the spark plug, cleaned the carb & changed the gas. Before I did all that it wouldn't start. Now it starts for about 5 minutes with smoke puffing out of side then stops.
The choke is very loose and it looks like it only hits a screw and isn't attached to anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is the smoke coming out the muffler or the side of the engine. Have you checked the compression. Maybe have a head gasket going out.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Thank you for the welcome. What is the compression? And were do I find it ? I've been going on YouTube & looking at videos for guidance.

This will explain how a two stroke engine works. Compression is one of the three things needed for an engine to run. Compression, spark, fuel.

Animated Engines - Two stroke

To check the compression, you will need a thing called a compression tester. Check with a local auto parts store to see if they have one they loan out.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.
