Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin

1 Answer

Poulon Wildthing 18" Gas Chain Saw

Machine starts and runs well but after a minute or two of running full speed it slows to half throttle. Its not the load, it runs at half throttle when I pull it out. A few pumps on the trigger and it comes back to full speed, but soon slows down again. Seems like its running out of fuel. Any suggestions would be appreciated. **** B

    Wild Thing boogs down after running a high speed for a minute or two. Acts the same even without load. Do not have information on the adjustment of H and L carb adjusts that I think is the problem

    My Poulan  starts like new, runs fine at idle,  skips a little when reving then revs up and runs fine at high speed.  Touch a log with the chair however, and it stalls right out.


    Can't find a vent hole in the fuel cap.  Anyone know how Poulan vents the tank?  Its a Poulan 295

    On my Poulon Wild Thing, fuel is getting to the carb and the primer pumps fuel OK, but the fuel never gets from carburetor inlet to the intake port of the cylinder. I get spark on end of cable and at the plug electrode, but it won't start and the spark plug stays dry with no smell of gas in cylinder even after prolonged starting attempts at full choke. Compression test says 55 psi, and I feel slight suction at the intake port with carb off. Disassembled and cleaned carb thoroughly and that did NOT help. It wont even start spraying starter fluid into the carb throat. Any ideas?????

    No duckbill in the fuel cap and it has never been replaced.  I bought the saw new.  My  son was using it while I was out of town and he says it was running fine, then all of a sudden, it developed this problem.  I am still thinking it is not venting.  Any ideas on what else could cause the problem?

Some Poulans vent thru a fuel line going from the tank to the carburetor. Some vent thru the cap but eventually the duck bill valve starts leaking fuel. Then I suspect some people change that cap to one without a vent, which causes the problem you are describing.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Check to see you are getting spark at the spark plug. Take the plug out and put the plug wire on it and ground the the nut on the spark plug to the engine block and crank the engine and see if you get spark at the plug. If so then your carburetor has to be taken apart and cleaned.

Talon electric chainsaw has no power, changed the fuse etc...any ideas??


talon chain saws have two control switches before they will start. One is the trigger that you pull and the other is a button or lever that has to be held in at the same time. These two controls mean that you have to have both hands clear of the chain before it works.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

How do i fix my powerwasher


If it is electric it will stop every time you release the hand piece. If it is engine driven then check the throttle setting as it should unload the pump and go to idle.
