If you store it somewhere other than a climate controlled building , the changes in temperature can cause the oil to expand out of the saw a little each time the temp. goes up.

try some absorbent cloth

Saw dies when giving it gas


It dies because it's flooding as you increase the amount of flow, a small carb adjustment is needed. As far as the leaking bar oil, if the saw has a pump replace the gaskets between the motor and the bar and reduce the amount that the saw puts out when running. Let me know if that cures the problem.

Chain oil leaks out quickly a rancher 55


Remove the bar and chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits. Does the oil port itself leak or is it coming from the engine case? If from the case, it may be a loose or split line from the tank or it could be a cracked oil tank. If the tank is cracked, replace it as there is no glue or epoxy that can permanently repair it. If the leakage seems to have stopped, clean the drive end of the bar including the two small oil passages that run out to the chain groove. Re-assemble the bar and chain, then run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard for a few moments--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw located near the chain return area on the back or underneath the case. Adjust CW to reduce the oil volume. Hope some of this helps!

Chain not lubricating


Remove the bar and chain. Clean all parts exposed including the bar drive-end small oil channels that feed oil out to the chain groove on both sides of the bar. Start the engine and look for oil oozing out of a small side port where the bar fits to. If ok and no oil seems to coming from under the case, reassemble all components. Start the engine and run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil. This saw should have an oil volume adjustment screw in the case back near the lower run of chain or just under the case in the same area. Turn CW to reduce volume. Hope this helps!

Bar oil leaking after use


Release the chain brake, back off the chain adjustment screw several turns, then remove the side cover and the bar/chain. Clean the engine side case where the bar fits to and run the engine for a few moments--oil should ooze out of the side port in the engine. If ok, then clean the removed parts including the two small channels in the drive end of the bar that convey oil out to the chain groove on each side. Reassemble everything and then run the tip of the bar near some cardboard for several moments at speed--it should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Unless you have a leaking oil line or the tank is split, you should have minimal leaking problems. Hope this helps!

Bar oil leaking constantly. How do I fix it?


These saws are of the self oiling type there is no tip or bottle it consists of a tank and a channel the oil flows thru and on to the bar by gravity. There is a type of bar oil system on some saws that come with a button you push which In turn pumps oil onto the bar. But the poulan is not one of them. I have a 15 year old farm hand 20" bar and a two year old poulan wild thing 18" and both leave there oil in the case when sitting I beleive the fix would be drain it after use and clean up.

Leaks bar oil


The chainsaw squirts oil into the oil hole in the bar. The chain picks up the oil and carries it all the way around the bar lubing it and the chain. When you quit running the saw there is still a lot of oil on the chain and all away around the chain guide in the bar. Once you quit running it and it sets a while all the oil will follow gravity and run to the bottom of the bar and drip out into the case. It's just another one of life's little nuisances. Have a nice day! Obwhon

Poulan-Pro 295 leaks excessive bar-chain oil


It's a seal somewhere either on the reservoir, or the 'feed' to the bar.
But in the short term, if you must use it, the simplest way of stopping the leak, is to not store it with any oil in it, until you locate the source of the leak.
That should help, but I'll wish you good luck never the less ;)
& plz don't forget to rate, thankyou :)

Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil


Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.
