I have a poulan 4218 chain saw will start but when i pull throttle it dies, open gas cap and gas sprays out

There is a air/fule ratio valve on the side of the carbarator it's adjustable with a flathead screwdriver. Turns this all the way in clock wise then back it out 1 1/2 turns counterclockwise. Once the equipment starts you may have to make some slight adjustments. For a person that dose not know making these adjustments can be difficult. One tip I can give is once it starts you should hear a trickling sound that sound normally means it's in its correct adjustment.
Check a few thing before you do any adjusting.
Check that your exhaust is not clogged dirt dobbers tend to make nest in the small hole.
Check that the fule filter and lines are in good working condition.
Check spark plug or replace.
And replace any old gas. Gas these days has a poor quality and shelf life. Gas that goes beyond 30days should be replaced. Also try to buy non Ethanol gasoline

also check the air filter. If these things check out ok then proceeded with the adjustments. If it still won't run correctly you may need to clean the carberator. Let me know if you need any additional help.

Chainsaw won't idle- runs fast only

Gently Tighten the carb adjustment screw fully tight then adjust it out 360 (full turn) then again a further 180 ( half a turn) and your idle speed should be set correctly. Let me know how you get on

4218 is the model, the key is part of the flywheel, so if the key has sheared it will require a new flywheel.

So i've been using a poulan pro 4218 all summer, ran like a champ for me everyday all day. then the crankshaft holding the clutch and sprocket snapped.. not a problem bought the part and replaced it....

Sounds like a carb issue, the L screw on the carb adjust the fuel mixture from idle to half throttle, i would richen the L screw by unscrewing 1/4 turn, this should improve the running, however there is a special tool to adjust the screws, part no. 530035560, the screws are fuel, not air screws, increase a shade more if it is still not idling or accelerating properly.

Runs to fast

You need to adjust the idle and high speed screw settings on the saw. Consult your user manual for tuning the engine.
