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.

:welcome: to the forum Kainalu4u

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.

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.

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.
