Saw starts real easy and fast. When its half choke it runs not problem. No choke it will only run with my finger on the trigger. Not only that but when I rev it up after maybe 30 seconds it starts to smoke, not exhaust but from the cylinder head. I need it early tomorrow but I am worried about adjusting it myself. The last time I tried adjusting a chain saw the motor seized the next day.

Sounds to me like the engine is starving for oil. This could be several things like a carb adjustment, to bad rings internally. Best bet is to bring it to a service center or call Poulan direct at 800-554-6723. Wish you luck.
