New Stihl ms 180 idles but will not accelerate

New Stihl ms 180 purchased in Nov 2008 and was used once in January 2009 for approximately 40 minutes before not being able to rev up. It starts easily and idles fine but will not rev up. Replaced the spark plug and checked the fuel filter. Dealer where I purchased this saw charged me $20 for a tune-up. The saw ran for 5 minutes while cutting down a small tree before doing the same thing again. I tried openig the fuel tank to see if venting could be problem but this had no effect.

Sounds like you may have a broken throttle cable. take the top cover off and inspect to see if this is the problem. let me know if this is it or if you need more assistance with this.

What is the part number for the oil filler cap for Stihl ms 180 c chainsaw? I need a replacement cap.


Stihl OEM parts and parts lists are proprietary. You can probably get the part number by phoning your local Stihl outlet but I doubt you will find parts with the exception of eBay. This is probably the largest collection of after market new parts available:

You can contact Stihl to request an IPL (exploded parts list) here:

I hope you found this helpful.
