Question about Husqvarna Garden
Leaks excessive amount of bar oil even when not running.did bounce around in a trailer briefly
It will never be completly leak free, if it is bad it could be a number of things, first check the oil pick up hose behind the pump, if this is a poor fit in the crankcase it will leak oil from around the sides, worst case is a leak from the crankcase gasket itself, this would require a full strip down, try draining the oil tank and re filling with cleaning fluid, as this is much thinner you will see very quickly from where it is comeing.

I imagine that the oil tube and or drip hole for the chain is plugged up. Remove the bar & clean up all the wood chips, etc to see if the bar oil is working. It can also be the hose or tank connection. Rick

Sounds like th clutch brake is engaged. Try Pushing firmly foward on the hand guard in front of the handle. It should click to release the clutch brake.
Let me know if this helps.

It's probably the oiler check valve located on the crankcase just in front of the clutch. You will probably need to remove the clutch and sprocket to get at it.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil
Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.

Most saws have a tendacy to leak after they are used. After use, just "burb" the oil fill cap to relieve any pressure. The closed oil system will siphon out all of the oil.
