SOURCE: My Stihl FS55 Trimmer gets a small amount of white smoke under full throttle, is that normal?

I recategorized this for you.

Yes, I would say that is normal as they are two stroke and burn oil to lubricate the piston, bore and crankshaft. If it smokes, you know it is OK. At full throttle it needs more oil.

Fs38 Stihl weed trimmer extremely very hard to pull with sparkplug in but no problem with no plug.

A hard pull on that unit would indicate a sheared flywheel key. The key is part of the flywheel. Check to see if there are 'rub or scrape' marks on the outside of the flywheel. Adjust coil clearance to .010". Coils on those models are normally very reliable. Use a spark tester for lawn mower engines. Preferably with a light in the center of the tester wire. If it its an adjustable tester, adjust the gap to at least .065 to 0.85". The light tester should produce a bright orange light, the adjustable tester should produce a bright blue spark. I cannot find specs on those models, as dealers use the 'light in wire' type tester.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Fs55 will not idle down

If you have the idle screw turned out all the way and it still runs fast, the saw is sucking air from some where. Check the carburetor gaskets. I work at a Stihl dealer as a mechanic and what we find most of the time is the air is sucked into the saw thru the main crank bearings. This is a costly repair to replace them and can only be diagnosis-ed by performing a vacuum and pressure check. Thanks. George
