Poulan 40cc 18". Not starting. Muffler full of liquid (gas?). Very hard to pull with plug installed, easy with it removed. New plug, good spark.

You might have a hydraulic lock in the engine if you squirted too much fuel in the engine while trying to start it. take the plug out, hold the throttle wide open and pull starter rope 5-6 times to clear it. Put plug back in and try to start it.

I just bought a new Poulan Model P3416 chaisaw (34cc) and I have followed the starting instructions and have not been able to start the saw. I have even varied the instructions but no luck. Any thoughts...

see if your switch is in run position and then pull your spark plug out see if it is wet, then see if it is sparking when you ground it and pull cord to roll over, if all is good hold throttle wide open and crank over without choke on, probably flooded, good luck
