Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar
When I give my chainsaw (Husquvarna) gas it will run good for a couple seconds then kill? I tried cleaning my air filter and nothing changed. Any ideas on what to try next?
Broken fuel pipe is a common problem

My 372 xp did that and when I talked to the repair shop they even showed me. There is a fiberglass gasket that is used to mount the carburetor to the engine. I have no idea on how this happens, but I saw it with my own eyes. The gasket had actually folded over. They replaced it with a rubber one and have had no problem since. The saw was hard to start, would run as long as I didn't try to cut anything and when I did it would open up and then die. I could be giving wrong information, but that sounds exactly like the problem I was having.

I had the same problem with my Rancher 455. With a full tank of gas, it would run for about 10 minutes and die. I found the fuel line (inside the tank) was broken. I forgot to store the saw without fuel and the gas eroded the fuel line. I replaced the fuel line and filter. Works great!

As a follow-up to my post of my Husky 455 rancher dying when I go to cut, the local repair shop told me it was a dirty fuel filter and a carb adjust, it runs great now

It could be tank vent. it could also be fuel tank filter.to get at filter you must empty all gas and fish out fuel line with peice of wire with hook on end.if you look in tank you can see line and filter.

Sounds like the gas tank vent is clogged. Try opening the gas cap and running the saw (this is best done with a 1/2 full tank), if the saw runs ok with the cap loose the tank vent is clogged. Took me a long time to figure that one out.
