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.

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
