How do I fix a McCulloch CS38EM chain oil system - the plastic tube with filter on one end in the oil reservoir is adrift.

well your right the tube is supposed to be conned on one end to the pump , its at the far end of the tank , there should be a small barb down there to connect it to , I use a small piece of stiff wire to guide it to the pump , and a simple press and on it pops , of course you have to temp remove the filter off the end to do this , but that's easy to pop back on from the mouth of the oil tank once you got it back on, as for the oil in the case , I think if u read the operators manual , it clearly says to remove all fluids before storing saw , this means to remove all gas and oil from both tanks , I use old jelly jars for this , there perfect size to hold whats in tanks , leaving the gas in the saw is sure gonna give you troubles in starting it next time as well

How much chain oil do I need for my poulan chain saw?

fill the oil reservoir to the top, each time you fill gas reservoir, a quart of oil usually should last you the use of a gallon of gas.

Cadillac CTS 3.6L V6 - The water in the water reservoir is mixed with what appears to be either engine or transmission oil.

If it is transmission fluid it is likely the heat exchanger (or cooler) has sprung a leak. The cooler is often integrated into the main radiator bottom tank. If fluid is entering the cooling system it is possible coolant could be entering the transmission.

Tranny fluid will appear clean and floating on the surface of the coolant and is likely to be pink or red while if it is engine oil it will be an altogether dirtier colour and more viscous. Try capturing a sample with some clean white tissue when the engine is cold.

Engine oil in the coolant could be a sign of a failing cylinder head gasket.
A failing head gasket is likely to produce unusual cooling system symptoms including ejecting coolant from the reservoir while a leaky tranny oil cooler is unlikely to have much effect on cooling system behaviour except for the obvious...

The problem could come from the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder. The cause could be external or internal.

First check the fluid level in the reservoir. The reservoir could be independent of the brake system or using the same.

If the level is too low, air may have entered in the line and the hydraulic compression is affected. So first, adjust the level in the reservoir using recommended oil. (normally brake oil is ok).

Check for any oil leak starting from the clutch pedal following hydraulic circuit up to the transmission.
Your vehicule should have two clutch cylinders: the master and the slave.
The master cylinder is operated by your clutch pedal, it's located under the dash, fixed to the firewall and connected to the hydraulic line on the other side of the firewall. Check for any leak on the carpet, under the carpet and near the hydraulic connection. Pumping the pedal making that verification could help to detect leak. Then follow the hydraulic line going to the slave cylinder attached to the transmission making a visual inspection for leaks.
If for any reason some air entered the circuit, the line could be purged from air bleeding the slave cyclinder as you do bleeding brake component.
If there is no air, no leak detected then it's probably an internal problem that you can't see. Remove the cap from the reservoir, depress the pedal. If the oil is moving in the reservoir then the master slave is probably bad otherwise I would suspect the slave.

Some other Gurus could complement or correct my saying.
Hope it will help

What kind of oil do I use in the oil reservoir of my chain saw?

I believe the reservoir you are talking about is for the bar chain oil. You can get it most anywhere. As for mixing the gas and oil mixture, you will need 2 cycle oil. It is available most everywhere also. Most modern chain saws use a 50:1 mixing ratio which means 2 1/2 ounces of oil to 1 gallon of gas. Hope this helps.
