Question about Garden
I am not familiar with he makita brand but as most saws are all very similar it shouldnt be much of a problem. chances are it is just a bit of saw dust in the line needing a air compressor blow out or it is not picking up the oil. the later i dont know how to do and as there are lots of small parts in a oiler i strongly suggest you get the help of someone that knows what they are doing to help you. Is it under warranty at all take it back as its a warranty issue. i have had the same issue with my stihls and needed a new oiler at $100 fitted so not cheap

The make, model, and occationally the serial number help us solve your problem.
Does the engine quit running? (Carburator needs adjustment)
Or does it continue running and chain stops? (need clutch refaced or replaced.) (to aggressive a chain for the size of the engine)
I think you replaced parts unnecessarily. Maybe quicker and cheaper to visit your friendly neighborhood chainsaw shop. A good one can repair it even if they do not sell your brand.
