SOURCE: my toro snowblower stalls out

The loud screech is caused by the starter bearings or solinoid needing lubricant.
Your other problem is the carb...follow these directions and it should solve your snowblower problems
Please rate me
Check your fuel filter in the fuel tank, if you have one.
It may need replacement or cleaning.
Also check your fuel tank for debris/trash and clean it out if necessary.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I recommend that you buy
and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard
and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor
internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small
rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid
and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of
the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to
reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the
carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need
to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes
to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first
and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

My toro 1028 powermax snowblowers impeller is not spinning. I can move in either direction by hand with no resistance . Is it a belt or a pin? Please help.

It might be a broken shear pin. They are designed to break if an obstruction is hit.

Replace only with original equipment.

Toro snowblower powermax 1028 Starts fine was working well but shifting seemed stiff and after getting stiffer it seemed stuck in low reverse. Any ideas of cause?

Sounds like the Friction wheel is sticking on a rusty shaft.
Stand machine up on it's Chute then take the Bottom cover off.
See how the Friction Wheel should move on the aluminum looking plate. That shaft needs to be clean and slightly greased.

My toro snowblower keeps stalling. It starts up fine, but won't run continuously.

If you haven't already, dump out gas and put fresh in it and try this, if it doesn't work you will have to clean the carb, take it apart and clean all jets ports etc and put back together and you should be Good to Blow Snow, pretty common problem with Small Engines that set half the season.

I have a toro 421 snowblower i filled it up today with oil and gas when I started it a milky white oil looiking came out the breather tube what could have caused this

it sounds like you had water in the crank case.
Stop running it immediately and drain all the oil. Then make sure the crank case is empty of oil and clean, and refill with fresh oil. After you fill it back up with oil, run it a minute and check again for any milky/foamy oil. If it is clean, check it again after several minutes. If it stays clean, you should be good. If it is milky again, take it for professional service, as you probably have a damaged gasket somewhere.
