Question about Poulan Pro 16-Inch 38 cc Anti-Vibration Chainsaw #PP3516AVX

2 Answers

I have a poulan pro 38cc 16"chainsaw about 5 yrs. old. It ran fine until I let it sit too long and when I went to use it,discovered the fuel lines had disentegrated. Replaced the lines,drained the fuel and put fresh fuel in, replaced the plug, cleaned the carb and muffler. The saw will run only if I keep playing with the throttle.It will not idle.I am not sure if I have run the fuel lines correctly as I have no diagrahm to go by. Appreciate any help.

    I replaced the fuel line on a poulan pro 295 which was split on the filter end. Now when you start it revs up to high speed with full choke and closed throttle for about 5 seconds then quits. Pull the cord about 2 times and it will do it again.

Poulan 16" saw, start fine, runs fine until it


A couple of ideas, it could be a fuel tank breather issue, when it starts to die just try loosening the fuel cap, if the saw picks up again you will need to change the breather, the only other thing i can think of is a bad ignition that is breaking down when hot, the only aswer to this is to replace the ignition unit

Poulan 16" saw, start fine,


Usually when a small engine starts fine.. runs fine.. gets hot it's ignition related.

First you want to make sure the cooling fins are clean.. remove any covers and clean the area around the head. If those fins are clogged.. not good.

Second I would check the spark.. and the spark plug condtion.

Also for power tools that don't get used that often.. fuel sytems get gummed up.. fuel gets old.. and folks tend to use the fuel in the can they mixed two seasons ago. Make sure the fuel mix is correct.

I assume it is running fine with the choke off.. however check the choke for proper operation.

Clean or replace the air filter as well.. once all the ignition and fuel components are in good order.. only then should you begin to adjust the carb. Probably not needed.. but don't do it until you are satisfied that you have good air fuel mix and proper spark.
Best of luck
