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

1 Answer

Engine pulls over good, without spark plug in , but very hard to

Very hard and jerky with plug in. I tore completly down and found no problem. Acts like too much compression. piston ring bearings all look good. Is it possible the rod could have stretched due to improper oil mixture.

    same as above, but never torn down farther than cleaning filter and wood chips.

Car is very jerky


What kind of car? Without much detail it's really hard to diagnose this. Make, Model, Year, and a description of when it's jerky would help (braking, accelerating, coasting, etc.) Are there any other symptoms/sounds related to the jerkyness? Could be anything from a bad spark plug to a bad transmission to a out of balance tire.

Answer to 2 year old question about hard starting saw.There is a seal that goes bad and leaks chain oil into the crankcase.This will make it very hard or impossible to pull the starter rope. To start the saw,pull the spark plug, stand the saw on it's end so the bar is pointed up and pull the rope 10-15 times. Replace the spark plug and start.It will smoke for a while.To stop this from happening, always store the saw with the bar pointed straight down.

Ryobi rcs3535.pull start operates easily when plug removed.when plug is replaced the pull start has so much resistance that turning the engine over requires too much effort and it is extremley jerky.


Remove the spark plug, ignition off, and open the choke and throttle. Turn the saw upside down and pull the starter through vigorously to see if the engine expels any fuel. Replace the plug and see if there is any change. Does the engine have a compression release? If so, it may be plugged with carbon--remove and clean or replace it. Modern saws seem to have more compression than earlier saws. I have a new, small Husky saw that is equally hard to pull and no compression release. The cure is to sell this one and find a saw with a compression release, or one that is otherwise not so hard to pull through. Good luck!

Valve replacement,one of my pistons isn't firing, the spark plugs are good, and my timing belt just tore so i'm thinking it may be the valve but i don't know how to replace it.


pull the head and send it to a machine shop . have them c/k all the valves . this will keep you from doing it twice . do a compesion test on the engine before you tear it down . you should have 120 psi in a good cyl . if less then that you have a problem

My pull cord to my pressure washer is hard to pull and it's not starting. Why? This all started after I tried to start it without the water on while attempting to start.


take out the spark plug and trying pulling it , if its still tight then you may have seized your pump ) , put a rag over te spark plug hole as there may be fuel/oil mix in the cylinder , check the oil in the engine , check the oil in the pump ( look for milkey white , if found then your pump back seals have gone )

McCulloch 3200 takes many pulls to start, runs good when does.


I don't think I can help, but normal starting procedure for me is to put choke on, pull on recoil until it kicks over once. shut off choke and restart. Sounds like you have fixed almost everything & adjusted mag right. Rick
