Sounds like a fuel issue. One make sure you are using the correct fuel / oil mixture (Ratio) i.e. 50:1 or 24:1 ratio. Two try rebuilding the carburetor. If that don't work it could be a sticky valve.

Probably have a Carb. problem. Take the carb apart and clean. The Needle Valve sounds like it is sticking.

my name is Dennis Gladx and I can assist you with the problem of getting the sprocket off of the crankshaft of your chainsaw.

To remove the centrifugal clutch and sprocket you unscrew it from the crankshaft and it has a left hand thread. Also a little trick to remove anything from a crankshaft that could turn while you want to unscrew the item, Remove the spark plug and insert some rope into the cylinder for the piston to squeeze against and you will jam the piston without damage.

Glad to be of assistance Please rate this solution because I can learn from your rating. Thank you

SOURCE: poulan 18" wildthing gas/oil ratio ?

All poulan products use 40:1. However 32:1 is ok too as it will give your machine longer life.

SOURCE: I have a Poulan 2000 chainsaw. I changed to

If this saw has a primer make sure lines are connected properly. Check for the wire going to stop switch is not pinched and grounding out. If carb. was disassembled be sure that gaskets and diaphragms are in the right order. Diaphragm with 2 flapper valve should be closest to carb body and diaphragm with metal disk should be installed after gasket is installed against carb body. I am assuming that saw was running before this cleaning. If not remove muffler and look for vertical scratches on piston this would indicate a scored piston.

Have a poulan wild thing and the oil bar compartment has gas in it


I would drain the oil and gas or whatever is in it. I would also drain the 2 cycle mix from the gas tank and start with a fresh gas and oil mix and fresh bar oil. The mix for the Poulan Wildthing is a 40:1 mix.

You are definitely going to smell gas when using any chain saw.

My machine overload,what do i do.the cilinder gets oil and the sparkplug is wet


Marthadelafu:

Remove the spark plug and clean it with rubbing alcohol and let it dry or blow dry it. Look at the carburetor. You will see two small screws next to each other. Those are the fuel/air mixture screws. one controls fuel, the other controls air. First check the air filter to see if it is clogged with dirt and debris... if it is, wash it in a soap and hot water solution and let it dry. After it dries out, reinstall it. Then turn the air/fuel mixture screws in GENTLY all the way. Turn them out one and a quarter turns. Check your fuel/oil mixture to see if you have the correct ratio of oil to fuel (most machines run on a 40/1 ratio... 40 parts gas to 1 part oil in other words, 40 ounces of gas to 1 ounce of oil. If your fuel/air mixture screws are one and a quarter turns out, the fuel/oil mixture is correct and the air filter is clean, the motor should start. You will need to adjust the fuel/air mixture screws a little to get the saw running to your satisfaction.

Poulan 18" wildthing chainsaw (model


This could be a couple of things, if the fuel tank brather is blocke the tank will vacume, to test this try slackening off the fuel cap when the saw starts to die, if it picks up again it is a fuel tank braether issue, the other possibility is a bad ignition unit breaking down, the only test for this is to replace the unit and try again.

My Poulan 18in 40 cc WildThing ChainSaw Won't Start.


Start with basic tests, drain the fuel tank and fill with fresh fuel oil mix, remove and reolace the fuel filter on the edn of the fuel hose, check the fuel hose up to the carb for leaks, remove the spark plug, rest it on the side of the cylinder ( away from the plug hole ) cramk the engine and check if you have a spark.

My Poulan Bar & Chain Oil gets used up very, very quickly???


Results for a Poulan 4018WT Type 2 (WildThing)
That is excessive, make them repair it. Your saw is warranted for 1 year.
The IPL lists no oiler adjustment and the Operator's Manual doesn't mention any oiler adjustment.

If you using any Bar Oil (30 weight with stuff added to make adhere to your bar and chain) and not a light weight motor oil I recommend you contact Poulan and make them repair it. Anything you attempt may void your warranty, do nothing without an official OkeyDokey. Get names, dates, and times in an e-mail for any official OkeyDokeys and save a copy them somewhere a computer crash won't wipe them out.

Contact Poulan here:
Poulan.com The dash number of your serial number is the type.

Ran chainsaw with brake on and chainsaw will not start now


Hi

Too much fuel at the sparkplug.The fuel accumulated in the cilinder because of brake left.Put the button in off position,remove the sparkplug and dry it,pull the starter for a while until the fuel is out from the cilinder.Put the sparkplug and start the engine.
