The Poulan blower sparkplug is dry as a matter of fact it still looks brand new. Is the carburetor not allowing the gas to get to the sparkplug? Mmmm

The plug will be dry as the fuel is burnt off during running. If it will not start and the fuel is getting through then it will be very wet. o I would say that the diaphrams in the carby are not working properly. Check that he filter on the end of the fuel hose in the tank is not blocked and that there is no air leaks on the inlet let manifold or gasket. You will have to use the choke for the first few pulls to get fuel into the carby.

SOURCE: poulan bvm pro 200 gas blower not getting gas

As a service center for Poulan products the usual problems for not starting I see is compression or the cylinder has come loose from the crankcase. Compression needs to be 115 psi minimum. If you remove the plastic muffler cover you can see the cylinder-crankcase joint. Wiggle the spark plug to look for any movement at that joint. If there is any movement the cylinder screws are loose.

Poulan has an excellent 2 year warranty and any service center should be happy to repair it under warranty for any problem.

first check to make sure the on/off switch isnt shorting out anywhere. try resetting the gap between the flywheel and the igniton module. you can use an index card or manilla envelope to set the gap. if it still doesnt work try replacing the module

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor, or rebuild it. Could be some debris in the jets of the carburetor. If the blower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank and not run at full speed. Hint: When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position. That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out. Please rate me, Thanks Good Luck, I hope this helped

I just purchased a poulan lawn mower at Kents. Have not used yet. Can you add unleaded gas to the poulan lawn mower/do you have to mix the gas?


You do not mix gas in a 4 cycle engine. You have to mix gas and oil for a 2 cycle engine, such as in a weed whacker, chainsaw, or leaf blower. I do not know of any 2 cycle Poulan mowers (or any other brands for that matter). Unleaded gas is all you can buy in the United States and all current mowers will run on it, although they really don't like that new ethanol additive. If your mower is new then it should have come with an owner's manual which will explain what to do, as well. Hope this answers your question.

Dont know what the oil gas mixture is suppose to consist of


Your manual (from Sears) states that your mix ratio is 40:1. You will need 3.2 ounces of Poulan "Pro" synthetic 2 stroke oil mixed in 1 U.S gallon of gas or you can mix 1.6 ounces of the oil in a half-gallon of gas. They suggest using the Poulan "Pro" brand synthetic oil. I do also. Synthetic oil significantly reduces wear, allows the machine to run cooler, and burns cleaner with less by-products and emissions. You can view a PDF file of your manual here:

Is getting air in gas line, will not start


If the hoses are connected right and they are in good condition, it could be bad gas,sparkplug or carburetor needs cleaned and/or a rebuild kit. Check the link below for parts:

Put new spark plug in new gas clean filter followed starting directions want start


The fuel system may need tending to. It may need new fuel lines, a cleaned fuel filter and the carburetor cleaned and adjusted. If this is an older unit, (even a couple years old) it may require some new internal carburetor parts as well. I don't like being the bearer of bad news, but this isn't always an easy fix. Your specific problem has to be diagnosed and by process of elimination, the problem resolved.

I have a poulan 2450 chainsaw and i can't get the primer bulb to **** any gas, the bulb is in good condition however there is gas leaking out of the gas cap in the center of it, do I need a new gas cap and...


You may be overfilling the tank somewhat so that expanding fuel (from engine heat) is being pushed out of the vent. Check the fuel filter for plugging and all of the fuel lines for any rot, splitting, or other damage. The primer bulb is supposed to pull fuel from the fuel filter, then through the carburetor and on to the primer which should push the excess back into the tank through another line. If the above does not allow the primer to pump fuel, then dismantle the carburetor, clean with carburetor spray cleaner, and rekit it. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetors--theory and troubleshooting. This information applies to most brands of carburetor. Hope this gets you running!

25cc poulan leaf blower runs but will not rev . it has to build up to a higher but no balls rpm


It may be old gas not allowing it to rev up. or the carburetor diaphragm may need replacing. I would say at 25cc engine is not going to sound or rev up like a more expensive blower.

Looking for a diagram for a poulan gas blower. Need to know what is in the carburatur repair kit.


Go to www.precisionope.com. This site has a place to look up Illustrated part list. It will probably give you a part number for a diaphragm kit or a repair kit for the carburetor. Of course if you know what carburetor is on the unit, you may be able to find a website to find the breakdown of the carburetor there.
