SOURCE: have a MAC 3818 chain saw it just stopped oiling.

Yes there is an oil pump. Behind the flywheel is a gear driven oil pump on that saw.

SOURCE: Poulan Pro Chain Saw Bar Chain Oiler Stopped Flowing

The filter can usually be caught with a hooked wire and drawn up far enough to deal with the filter. Oil filters are not prone to plugging unless the oil used is contaminated. If you run the engine without the bar and chain attached, oil should ooze out of the engine side port. If nothing, suspect problems with the oil pump. Some saws use a plastic gear in the pump and can strip the teeth of the gear. You should find it located behind the clutch assembly. Once you have oil flowing from the engine, clean the bar drive-end oil ports that go from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side. Finally, run the bar tip near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. I have no idea what the plastic tube might be (a manual pumper perhaps?). Hope this helps!

SOURCE: no oil flow to lubricate chainsaw bar and chain.

have you drained oil tank and checked oil pickup filter ?

have you checked oil tank breather ?

next check the drum and worm oil pump driver , they should have no damage to them , and engage the drum and worm should engage the pump shaft correctly with no slipping or binding , check the oil outlet hose is clear and make sure the pick up hose is clear with no holes / tears in its length but mostly sounds like the oil pump and worm need replacing ?

if you find a worm pump and worm gear replace them and make sure the oil pick hose seals off the oil tank to pump opening ( because if it sucks air with will not pump properly ) and oil will leak out under gravity while sitting

MY HUSQVARTA 340 STARTS BUT THEN DIES AND THE OIL TO THE CHAIN DOES NOT DISTRIBUTE TO THE CHAIN IT ENDS UP AT THE END OF THE BAR


Remove the fuel hose from inide the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter, remove the top cover and clean the air filter, now try again, the chain oil is delivered to the top of the bar and is taken around the bar by the drive links, make sure you are useing a non fling chain oil, remove the guide bar and clean out the delivery hole, now try again.

No oil getting to my chain


Release the chain brake, then remove the bar and chain. Clean the area where the bar fits to on the engine. Start the engine to see if the oil oozes out of the small port. If nothing, then the oil pump, oil line, or tank filter will require service. If oil does come out, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each edge. Re-assemble the bar and chain--adjust the chain so that it just comes up to the lower bar edge, but you can still turn it by hand. Make sure the chain teeth cut toward you on the lower run of chain. Run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. Hope this helps!

No bar oil is coming out. Emptied oil resevoir and blew air from compressor back through from oil outlet and still nothing. What could be the problem?


Normally, there are valves in the oil circuit that prevent oil/air movement in the reverse direction. There is usually an oil filter on the line inside the tank that occasionally will plug up. Remove same and check. An oil line can go bad as well as the oil pump. Some brands of saw use a plastic gear for the pump and the gear can strip it's teeth--check for same. When checking for oil flow, remove the bar and chain--look for oil to ooze out of a port on the engine case where the bar fits to. If ok, then clean the oil passages in the bar end, especially the two small passages that go to the chain groove on both sides of the bar. Finally, with everything together, run the saw at speed with the bar tip near a piece of cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil on the cardboard. Hope this helps!

The 330 homelite chain saw bar is not getting oil.


If the pump is a piston type, there must be valves on both sides of the pump to control the flow of oil in one direction. The one in the tank is called is called a 'duck-bill' valve and may be mal-functioning. Can you move the diaphragm by hand to see if it pumps anything? Did you run the engine without the bar and chain attached to make sure the bar oil-ports were not choked up. Oil should ooze out of the engine side port when running. Hope some of this helps!

a fix that sometimes works is to add kerosene to oil tank where the oil would go normally and rev saw several times with out load holding blade in down position over a piece of dry card board so you can see the oil spraying on the piece of cardboard careful of moving chain

Location of bar oiler adjustment screw on p4018wt


THIS WORKED FOR ME....I have a 2014. I've had that problem for quite awhile. I finally decided to try to fix it. I took the bar and chain off, removed all the crud in there. Then I took a small air compressor and blew out the entire area so it was pretty clean. I started the saw at this point and gunned it some. The oil became noticible within a few seconds where it comes out at, above the outer chain bar bolt. Once I found the hole, I then drained the oil tank, and then using the air pump, blew out the hole from the blade area to the tank, leaving the oil cap OFF. Upon refilling the oil tank with a lighter oil (10 wt), I restarted the saw, and the flow was really coming. After the oil; tank empties, I'll start using the regular bar-and-chain oil again, but it's pretty heavy, even though it says it is 30 wt.
