Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
My chain saw had been acting up by not idling, so i turned the idle up and used it for a few hours. Then it completely stopped running right in the middle of a big cut. And it wil NOT start or fire. I have changed the spark plug, cleaned the carburator and still nothing. Any suggestions?
Is it still mechanically sound? whip the muffler off and take a look at the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any sign of scuffing or damage and it will have to come apart.

If your chain brake is not engaged, which i am sure you have checked, look at the air breather filter or the exhaust muffler which could be blocked with carbon.

your high speed jet is clogged ... both the low speed jet and the high speed jet are adjustable on the 2375 .. you might try to unclog the jet by removing the high speed adjustment screw (needle) ... first check to see where its set .. turn it in CW until it stops while counting the turns and fraction of turns as you do .. so you can set it close when you replace it ... sometimes just screwing the adjustment in then back out again cleans the jet .. or you can try a little carb cleaner in the hole after removing the adjustment ... sometimes you have to remove the carb and carefully clean the tiny passageways .. its easy for something to get stuck in those .. you can clean it yourself or have it cleaned or buy a new carb (abt $24) ... listed below is one source for carb parts .. make sure the gas cap is venting properly .. if its stuck and wont let air in . then the motor will run for a while then it will have your simptoms as vacuum builds in the tank .. the high speed jet has a very small hole that is easily clogged ..
