Could be an air leak. Possible split in the fuel hose, damaged carb gasket or diaphram, sucking air. Could also be muffler carbonized.

Try putting a new bar on it. Sometimes during use the grove in the bar gets a kink in it. This will cause the chain not to move like it should. Also, the sprocket at the end of the bar can go bad also causing a malfunction.
Best bet!!!!!! Buy a new bar...

I think you are saying the centrifugal clutch does not engage. It should not at idle. Did you rev it up a little and it still not engage? There is a clutch face on sprung weights that should expand and turn the clutch drum above idle. Please see the “Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly” detail for clutch illustrations.
A 2375 has an outboard clutch (the chain is between the engine and clutch drum).
2375 Type 7 (may not be your saw)
Use this as a guide to remove the clutch and inspect the parts:

A 4018 has an inboard clutch (only the drive sprocket extends into the clutch cover). Do this first then use the outboard procedure to remove the remaining clutch pieces.

The C-clips tend to fly when being removed. Please wear eye protection and exercise care.
If these are not your saw it can be found here:
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

I do not recommend operating your saw at full throttle without the bar and a properly adjusted chain.
Remove clean and reinstall the air filter and muffler, do not forget the spark arrestor. If it the problem persists turn the "H" needle valve CCW 1/8 turn. Better?
This is a very good adjustment procedure.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.
There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too. HTH

Is your chain sharp? Sometimes you hit stuff in wood without realizing it and it dulls your chain, dirt, nails, trash, it's all bad for the chain. If you aren't getting enough oil on your chain while cutting it will also shorten the life of your chain dramatically.
