Have you replace the chain with he wrong one recently maybe?

Are you using the proper grade oil?

If it uses a vacuum system is the oil port clean? If a pump, is the outlet port clean?

SOURCE: old homelite XL chainsaw pumping bar oil into engine while runnin

Check that the oiler hole and the hole in the bar that it pumps into aren't clogged. The sawdust running under the chain and be deposited in the oiler hole in the bar until it plugs it solid. That will keep the oil from havintg a place to go and build up pressure.

SOURCE: The 330 homelite chain saw bar is not getting oil.

If the pump is a piston type, there must be valves on both sides of the pump to control the flow of oil in one direction. The one in the tank is called is called a 'duck-bill' valve and may be mal-functioning. Can you move the diaphragm by hand to see if it pumps anything? Did you run the engine without the bar and chain attached to make sure the bar oil-ports were not choked up. Oil should ooze out of the engine side port when running. Hope some of this helps!

SOURCE: My Poulan Pro PP4620AVHD bar

The pump should be located just behind the clutch assembly which needs to be removed to access the pump. Have you run the engine with the bar and chain removed? The oil should ooze out of the engine side port where the bar fits up to. If not, then the pump is certainly suspect. There is a filter in the oil tank which might be plugged. The clutch has left-hand threads and can be difficult to remove. Don't try to use an impact wrench with adapter as it will cause the flywheel key to shear. Hope this helps!

Why does my stihl chain saw stall when I tilt it. Also it has a problem pushing the chain oil out to the bar


You never stated what model you're referring to. The running issue when tilted could be a fuel tank vent problem. Replace if necessary.

The oiling problem could be a number of things, check the bar groove is clean, check the oil pick up body inside the oil tank, check the oil pump/ oil worm if it has one (don't know what model yours is) check the feed line between the oil pump and where it exits to feed the bar.

Homelite CSP 4518 oil pump


The most probable cause is the oil line inside the saw from the oil tank to the pump or oil flow being blocked at the rubber ball that you can see when you remove the chain, bar and plate before it has a chance to get to the bar. in my case i had the oil line itself blocked from dust getting into the oil tank over time

Husqvarna chain saw 385 xp chain or bar not getting oil at all


check bar oil holes,
check oil tank pickup filter - should be clear, clean oil tank

remove drum and clutch, check drum and check oil pump driver arms ( could have worn or broken off and drum is not driving it around ,

check the worm part of the pump driver as well ,
remove pump oil pickup lines and outlet lines , check that both lines are clear and that the pump is not all bound up / stiff or damaged if everything else is good

i would replace the pump and reassemble , tighten clutch anti-clockwise ( clockwise to loosen it ) make sure drum cut out engages oil pump driver arms

as a rule if replace pump also replace pump driver , they are matched

My 3516AVX is not oiling the chain, although the resevoir is filled.


can you verify the bar oil holes are clear?
is the breather on the oil tank working? air should be able to get in but not let oil out

can you verify the drum / sprocket is turning the pump worm gear ?

is the oil tank filter clean, not blocked, and oil line to pump clear ?

is the oil outlet passage to bar mount face clear ? if all of the above are ok then you have a faulty pump replace it and reassemble saw
refill oil tank and test

be sure to remove clutch assy turning it clockwise to remove it
it has a left hand thread

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.

My saw barely uses half of the oil tank with a tank of gas when new it used almost all of it and even sometimes ran out


1. clean bar & saw - checking oil holes, groove on bar; oil outlet on saw - may be partially blocked - a fine wire may assist with careful clearing.
2. if cleaned replace bar/chain and test for oil flow.
3. drain oil and check if there is a filter, clean/replace filter and clean out tank.
4. see step 2
5. If still not flowing - check for manual adjustment of oil pump.(May need to be advanced)
The next steps depend on your own abilities and experience as to whether you want to further investigate or approach a reputable dealer to see about repairing or replacing oil pump and or associated oil line(depends on your brand/model etc).

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.

The chain stopped oiling how do i repair this


Need to determine if the oil is really bad or not. The oil is pumped out of a hole on the back side of the bar. It pumps the oil into a hole in the bar where the chain catches the oil and carries it around the bar. Sometimes that hole can get clogged up with sawdust and won't let the oil into the bar. You can take the bar and chain completely off if you like. Clean it will then with the bar off start the chainsaw and see if you're getting oil of the injector. Most times this will fix the problem. If this doesn't fix the problem clean out the oil tank and clean the nozzle to the injector.
