Try replacing the tank vent, The vent acts as a 1 way valve allowing air into the tank to balance the atmos pressure. Does the carb also have a primer pump on it.? Sometimes faulty primer pumps can cause the tank to pressurise. You haven't stated the model otherwise i could have been a bit more accurate with the diagnosis. :)

SOURCE: Replacing the fuel vent hose on a Stihl chain saw

If it's the clear vent hose that connects to the tank on the left side, that's it. There is a brass plug inside the hose that meters outside air in the tank to regulate the pressure. The hose connects to the tank nipple, done.

Woodboss 028av. I removes the air filter. on the left side there is a tiny plastic tube with a tiny spring inside it. what is this for


I think you are looking at the fuel tank breather pipe. The AV just means; anti vibration. My Stihl parts list shows it as 1117 350 5800 Tank vent.(Plastic Tube) And 1120 358 8105 Vent Insert. Its basically a small plastic tube with a restrictor in it that vents the tank. Only repair it if there is gas leaking. A local shop would help or go online.

Will start but will not stay running


The 455 was very prone to blocking the fuel tank vent, as a test, when the saw starts to die release the fuel cap, if the saw picks back up and runs normally it is a breather issue, the breather is pressed into the crankcase under the starter cover.
