Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"

Poulan PP4218AUX will not start

Poulan PP4218AUX , 42cc with a 18" bar. It will not start. I am getting a spark & I also installed a new plug. I thought it was in the fuel supply but when I manually put a small amount of fuel in carb. & also tried in cylinder, it does not try to start.Is it possible that spark is not strong enough or does this sound like a fuel issue.

I have a poulon pro 42cc saw that wont start. dont think its getting gas cuz i tried to flood it with the primer but no gas on the spark plug.


The primer will not flood it, all the primer does on these saws is pushes fuel through the carb. If this is a new saw, it needs a carb adjustment, a very common problem on poulan products these days. It's covered by the warranty at any of their service dealers (you can locate one on poulan's website).
How old is the gas you are using? If the mixture is more than 30 days old, make a new mix and try again.
Check for spark. Pull the boot off of the plug. Hold the boot near something metal and pull the starter. If you see a spark, you are good. If you don't, you may have a problem with the coil.

Cannot get the saw to start, even with starter fluid. Checked fuel line, compression, new fuel,....Yard sale item, new spark plug in saw. Don't know if it's right, but sparks when starting


I assume you have installed a new spark plug. Most common problem is the fuel pump diaphram in the carbuerator goes bad. Rebuild the carb in that case... about $20 for the kit... Last problems are the magneto coil or that the flywheel key has sheared causing timing to be off.

No spark from spark plug


New Saw? Warranty time
Electronic ignition? Replace entire module. Pinched wire to metal case part for ignition switch. Permanently shorted ignition switch--replace.
