Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"
My chainsaw will start just fine, but when I give it the gas it dies. Please give me some advise as to what it might be. The chainsaw only been used 4 time and for very short times at that.
Adjust the gas and air on the two little screws on the carborator

Check the fuel line for cracks. That is usually the problem. Plastic fuel lines crack with age and need to be replaced. I have had a couple of Craftsman Saws (made by Polan do the same thing).
Fuel line can usually be purchased at a hardware store or saw shop. Takie a piece of the old line with you to get the right size.

I'm only familiar with stihl saws. On these there are three screws labelled H,L, and LA. Check your owners manual as like picatudo suggested, the factory settings of the H and L screws may need adjusting.
Another way to check for leaks is spray carb cleaner over the cylinder head while running the saw. If the rev's change it's sucking in the carb cleaner and the cylinder head gasket may be leaking.
