I hope you are using fresh gas, as when gas gets old from previous season use, it can be the problem. I have seen a spark plug fouling, giving the same results though. I don't know the hours you have run the saw, or the severe use it may have seen. Have you checked air cleaner? fuel supply? If it was set up for a long period of time with old gas, carb may need cleaning.
Hope all these questions stimulate some possible problem resolution

SOURCE: Poulan Wild Thing starts great but as soon as I try to cut it die

The carb low idle needs to be adjusted this is fairly common among the Poulan chain saws. Once you adjust the low idle from factory setting it will work

SOURCE: Poulan 295 chainsaw won't start when warm


Check the spark plug first (when the engine has warmed and died).If you have a good spark,check the fuel pump from the carb(it shuld not to be tighten).If everything is ok check the seals(they are sealing the engine).Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a Poulan 2450 chain saw which runs great

It does happen they quit when hot. More often they just quit.
There are 7 different "2450 Gas Saw Types" here: (Type 1 $25.35)
There is a help link on top that will eventually find someone with a pulse. If you go this way please have your saw within easy reach before calling. HTH
Good for you on the spark test and isolation of the problem. You also listed the make and model. I think I'm in love, LOL.
Thanks, it makes our help easy.

SOURCE: 20" poulan chain saw cuts at angle

Buy an oregon green chain for the saw,much better chain, more teeth,heavier duty,outcut the original chains by far,and can be sharpened many times over.Keep the chain sharp and she should cut straight.Dont over tighten the chain, I tighten mine til I can just lift the bottom of the chain almost completely out of the bar groove.

Check your exaust hose. Mine came loose inside the engine compartment and it caused the same problem. Would run great for a while, then just die or start sputtering like it was missing or the plugs were bad. After I let it sit for a while it would start up fine, run great for about 15 mins, then have the same problem.

Hello, W/D here.
Check the pinhole vent in the fuel filler cap. As fuel is removed when the engine is running, air is pulled into the tank. If the vent is blocked, a vacuum is formed, and fuel cannot flow. After a period of down time, air infiltrates back into the tank, and the engine can be re-started. You can test this out just by cracking the cap open after starting the engine, just enough to allow air to get into the tank.
Best regards, --W/D--

Sounds like you have a restricted fuel filter that is causing your vehicle to start sputtering because it can't meet the engine's demand for fuel and then dies when fuel is depleted. After your vehicle stops running, fuel starts seeping by and you can start it again with ease hot or cold and you get the same results moments later if this sounds right replace your fuel filter.

Mtd pro snow blower runs then die

it sounds to me like either the oil pressure switch is being plugged after startup and causint the engine to quit then the plug settles until you start it again and it plugs again easiest way to test is to take the swith and remove the wire to it and see if the engine starts and keeps running, if so then replace the old pressure switch. If this does not solve the problem then the only other thing I can think of is the needle valve is partially pluged, at startup the fuel bowl is full and the engine startsbut after starting the fuel bowl runs low on fuel as it is not filling fast enough and the engine stalls. By the time you try starting it again the fuel bowl is filled again and the whole thing starts all over. Hope This Helps Don

2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick
