Question about Stihl Chain Saws, 017, 019, 021, 023 & 025
Posted by Anonymous on
I've noticed some problems with my old Stihl saw not starting and the solution was simply to empty out all the fuel and leave the cap off for a few days. What happens when you leave the fuel in for too long it starts to soak into the fuel pickup line ( looks like a piece of rubber hose with a filter on the end of it) and the rubber gets so soft, it just collapses just from the litlle bit suction coming from the carburetor..
When I let my air dry out for a while it became a lot more solid and my Stihl worked faithfully again.
Try the simple things first. Use new gas with right ratio of gas:oil ( too much oil makes an engine hard to start). Check that the spark plug is clear and not burnt with to much carbon. Also pull off the boot of the plug and ground it to the engine with ground it to the engine frame and see if you get a bright spark when you pull the handle
