It's probably the oiler check valve located on the crankcase just in front of the clutch. You will probably need to remove the clutch and sprocket to get at it.

Did you check the oil hole on the bar to see if it clogged?

What type of oil is used for my 2055 2.O CI woodsman chain saw?


This engine is certified to operate on unleaded gasoline.Before operation,gasoline must be mixed with a good quality synthetic
2-cycle air-cooled engine oil designed to be mixed at a ratio of 40:1.Poulan/Weed Eater brand synthetic oil is recommended.Mix
gasoline and oil at a ratio of40:1.A 40:1ratio is obtained by mixing 3.2 ounces of oil with 1 gallon of unleaded gasoline.

As far as bar and chain oil:
Genuine Poulan R bar and chain oil is recommended to protect your unit against excessive wear from heat and friction.Poulan R oil resists high temperature thinning.If Poulan R is not available,use a
good grade SAE30 oil. Never use waste oil for bar and chain lubrication.

Poulan pro troubleshooting


CHAIN STRETCHS AS IT HEATS - KEEP CHAIN TIGHTENED CORRECTLY AND ALWAYS KEEP OIL IN OILER AND MAKE SURE IT OILS THE CHAIN. IF THIS DOESN'T FIX - REPLACE THE CHAIN. IF IT STILL HAPPENS THEN REPLACE BAR. WILL FAIL AGAIN WITHOUT OIL. POULAN WILL NOT HOLD UP WITHOUT CHAIN LUBRICATION. WORSE THAN OTHERS. IF CHAIN OR BAR OVERHEATED YOU'LL WORK ON IT MORE THAN YOU CUT. OIL IS THE KEY TO CUT WITH A POULAN!

What oil do we put into the poulan 3.0 peak hp


I assume you are referring to the Bar/Chain oil?
That would be Almost any Available brand chainsaw Bar and Chain oil, If that is not available you can use New uncontaminated SAE 30 motor oil.

I need a manual for a new Poulan 3.5 electric chainsaw, or, failing that, I need instructions on what kind of oil to use on it, and whether I need separate oil for the chain.


You shouldn't need any other oil than the oil to keep the chain and bar guide oiled (pressing down on the button adds more oil to the chain/bar). You can use standard Bar and Chain Oil, or probably pay a little more and use the Poulan brand oil, but in my experience, any bar oil for chainsaws will work, and the larger the container you buy, the less per ounce you will pay. Remember this is NOT an automatic oiling system, so it will be cheaper in the long run to remember to press that button than to replace the chain/saw if it overheats.

Chainsaw starts but chain doesn't move


Probable very oily clutch internals. Remove the bar and chain, then spray the clutch internals with spray carburetor cleaner, let dry and reassemble bar and chain. Hope this helps!

I have a poulan wild thing 18" bar and I have had a problem with the bars wearing out quickly. I use regular poulan bar and chain oil. Did this saw have a specific problem with the oiling system?


If the oil level in the chain oil tank goes down normally then you may be running the chain too tight. Also make sure the oil ports in the bar are clear so the oil can get to the chain. hope this helps you

I am trying to put the chain on my poulan saw and the teeth wont go in the groove on the bar


the chain on these saws will only go in one direction ~ when you re-move the sheild to fit the chain a small diagram will be shown to what direction is required.
if this is not the problem and the teeth won't fit any where on bar then check for damage to bar or dirt stuck in it.clean out with soapy water and use spay oil to prevent rust.
