I put gas in the oil tank and the oil in the gas tank by mistake, started the saw , it ran for a few minutes then stoped.is it serious???
Not likely. The gas in the oil tank can be drained and refill with bar oil - it might even help it feed more oil to the bar and chain as it would clean any deposits out! The oil in the fuel would just plug up the jets in your carburetor. You'll need to remove the tank and any housing over the carb, as well as the air filter. Blow compressed air into the fuel line to remove the oil from it and watch where it comes out in the carb. Now spray carb cleaner into the throat the oil came out using the red straw. It is possible you may need to remove the air / fuel mix screws on the side of the carb. If so, turn those screws clockwise, counting how many turns it takes to bottom out the screw - take your time, this is really important to get it to run when your done.Don't tighten those screws down - you may damage the seat which will affect the operation. Writing down the turns may help - it helped me!! Remove those screws and blast those ports with the carb cleaner and straw.Spray out fuel line again as well as the throat the oil came out in the carb. Remove and clean or replace spark plug. Doing it now will give the carb cleaner time to dry out. Install those screws, making sure you get them in the right positions and the right turns out by bottoming out the screws then turning out to the proper distance. Install tank, air cleaner, and shoot a 1/2 second blast of starting fluid into the cylinder before you install the plug - make sure you use starting fluid with lubrication so you don't bugger up the piston rings or cylinder wall. Install spark plug, fill oil tank, fill fuel tank with proper mix fuel, choke and start - you should be good to go.
Hope this helps!!
