Oil System Plugged.

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar) Clean the saw’s oiler hole and channel. Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up. If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is probably left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL

SOURCE: i have stihl chain saw it runes full throttle

After you let off of the throttle it dies instantly or just kind of quits slowly ?
It could be :
- 1 ) Your clutch is hanging up and not allowing the engine to idle while the chain is not moving.
- 2 ) You need to set the idle higher. You will need to remove the air cleaner, and find the small idle adjustment screw, and turn the screw clockwise, until it idles.
Please let me know.

This sounds like an air leak. Checking all of your hoses and making sure the crankshaft seals are good is where to go after adjusting the carburetor to factory settings.
remove the muffler and make sure the engine does not look like this:

My chain wont tighten on my stihl 044 chainsaw


Assuming you have the right length chain and its not just running out of adjustment, it would then probably be a stripped or snapped chain adjuster. Can be coursed when the bar nuts aren't dun up before starting to cut, the force of the chain saw will snap an adjuster no problems. If its striped it might smear like its adjusting in but when it gets to a point it will just stop

Stihl saw runs but won't idle.


The paper pumps get stiff and do not pump fuel very well. It's the new Ethanol gas that is the Carb Killers. You need a rebuild kit not just disassemble and clean.
You have IDLE ADJUST Low Speed adjust and High speed adjust. Low and High speed adjust have nothing to do with Idle.

How do you start a STIHL MS460 chainsaw


I am a Stihl mechanic. The proper starting procedure is to set the switch to full choke. Pull the starter rope no more than three times.Now raise the switch up one notch and pull it till it starts. Stihl products will flood if pulled more than three times with the choke on. Thanks, George

I would say it is flooding, you realy need to pressure test the carb to check the seating of the inlet needle, a simple bulb tester is all you need, connect it to the fuel inlet on the carb ( where the fuel hose is connected ), pump approx 2/3 psi into the carb, it should hold this steady with no leak, any leaks then you will have to fit a new inlet needle, let us know how the test goes.
