    I have a 021 and the bar and chain is getting no oil. Every time i open the oil tank it's full.! I cleaned it three times and still no luck.

  • darkon spraa May 24, 2009

    When I have the bar removed and rev up the motor oil is pumped out where it should come out. I've cleaned the hole in the bar where the oil is supposed to go but when all is assembled as and run up no oil gets on to the chain or bar.

    When new I could get a light spray, as per instructions, coming off the chain when running.

    Also the chain saw leaks oil when not in use.

    Any solutions?

I imagine that the oil tube and or drip hole for the chain is plugged up. Remove the bar & clean up all the wood chips, etc to see if the bar oil is working. It can also be the hose or tank connection. Rick

Most chain tention issues are due to inadiqate oil to the bar and chain, or the wrong type of oil, there may also be issues if this is a tooless system to lock the bar.

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain


Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you're going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.

Try loosening the chain just a little bit. Not enough to have it come off the bar, but enough to reduce the friction between the chain and the bar.

I have a Stihl 16" 012 AVT chainsaw. I cannot get


First thing I would try is wash out the oil tank with a little bit of diesel fuel then run some thinner oil thru it to see if it gets better . I usually leave bar and chain off when I do this.. or if it is oiling but not going down the bar check the bar oil holes.

Bar not recieving oil


The problem is related to the internal oil pump. The followings are the possibilities:
  • Clogged line from the oil reservoir to the pump.
  • Clogged line between the oil pump and the chainsaw bar orifice.
  • Faulty oil pump itself (common in well used/old device).
Hope it helps.
