Some saws use the engine vacuum for pressure for the oiling the chain. Sometimes this is a fairly complicated procedure. Am thinking a check valve is not working properly allowing the oil to get into the cylinder. You will probably have to run the oiling circuit down by starting at the bar then going through the housing and find what components are in the circuit and try and decide which is giving you the problem. Probably just a seal or check valve.

Is there a way to unstick the piston?


Use cutting oil (ATF Fluid works well) and let it soak overnight, if that doesn't free it you need to remove and rebuild the engine. You can (after waiting for the oil to work) try a wooden dowel that will fit in the spark plug hole and then hit the dowel to try and free the sticking piston, use finis, tap with only moderate force repeated times.

Oil pump 266 xp


The pump or gasket could be bad. Make sure you use only bar and chain lube as this can also effect flow.

Can't pull starter string on cs2210


In some saws with automatic oiling the bar oil gets into the cylinder and it binds up because a liquid can not be compressed. Pull out the spark plug and try pulling it an few times to clear out the oil. If the starter cord still can not be pulled the piston my be siezed in the cylinder due to not enough oil in the fuel mix. Chances are the saw is kaput.

Homelite ut104552 pumps bar oil in piston


The saw you have must have a combined crankcase/oil tank, they will be seperated via a gasket, if this gasket is leaking then oil from the oil tank can and will enter the bottom of the crankcase.

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve


I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don't seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.
In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.
But if the piston is dry, it won't pump.
If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won't work.

I need to know a fuel oil ratio.


Regardless of what the manual says once adjusted your saw will perform better with this mix.
Do you need bar oil? Available at any Hardware or Home Center.
Fuel/Oil Mixture
  1. Use a quality 2 cycle oil and mix it to the OIL suppliers recommended ratio. Today I use Stihl 2 cycle oil mixed @ 50:1 in a Pioneer that I purchased new in 1980. There are no gouges or scratches on the piston or cylinder and I have no carbon build up on the piston top. The manual (on stone tablets) recommends 24:1. Over the years the mixture has leaned from 24:1 (Saw Recommendation) to 28:1 (Lawn boy mower recommendation) to 32:1 (Oil provider 2gal premium/8oz chainsaw 2-cycle engine oil - used for many years) and finally the last 5 (±) years 50:1 (1gal premium/2.6oz Stihl 2-cycle engine oil)
  2. Any fuel containing ethanol is not good with chainsaws. Mix what you expect to use within a few weeks. Anything over 1.5 months old use up in a 4 cycle engine. HTH

Your Craftsman is probably a Poulan, for the past few years Poulan has recommended a 40:1 ratio 1 gal premium/3.2 oz quality 2-cycle engine oil. I'd thin down even a little more 50:1 (1 gal premium/2.6 oz quality 2-cycle engine

For the bar every home center and hardware sells bar oil. It is 30 weight non-detergent oil with a few additives to help it adhere where lubrication is needed. HTH
