What weight oil are you using , I have found that the new saws work best with a thinner oil , the old(r) guys work even with straight motor oil ,but the newer ones have to use 20 -30w bar chain oil

a dab of kerosene can be added to filtered used motor oil to make a very fine chain oil for less cost

SOURCE: Insufficient chain oiling

Sorry to tell you this but you need a new OIL PUMP but it's not a difficult thing to replace.
On the main shaft of the crank shaft under the centrifugal clutch is a spiral wound wire that matches a plastic part that is the oil pump. You can get the part from Poulan parts and it will take about 15 minutes to fix the first time eight minutes the second time.
Glad to be of assistance.

SOURCE: location of bar oiler adjustment screw on p4018wt

THIS WORKED FOR ME....I have a 2014. I've had that problem for quite awhile. I finally decided to try to fix it. I took the bar and chain off, removed all the crud in there. Then I took a small air compressor and blew out the entire area so it was pretty clean. I started the saw at this point and gunned it some. The oil became noticible within a few seconds where it comes out at, above the outer chain bar bolt. Once I found the hole, I then drained the oil tank, and then using the air pump, blew out the hole from the blade area to the tank, leaving the oil cap OFF. Upon refilling the oil tank with a lighter oil (10 wt), I restarted the saw, and the flow was really coming. After the oil; tank empties, I'll start using the regular bar-and-chain oil again, but it's pretty heavy, even though it says it is 30 wt.

SOURCE: Where is the bar oil adjusted from on husqvarna 345

Turn the Hus 345 chain saw upside down, you may see a little Icon of a oil droplet and a + - arrow by the chain. THe adjustment screw is not pictured in any of the standard user manuals,. but it is a small black slot headed screw over a rectangale metal tab by the chain. I believe if you turn it counter-clockwise, it will give you more oil,, It did for me. If you have the bar off, you can start the saw and see it come out the hole, that would verify your oil pump is working. Make sure the holes on the bar are clean also. running the saw at a fast idle for 1 min should oil the chain well enouth that it starts spraying off the end of the bar when you gun the engine.

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain


Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you're going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.

How do I replace the oil pump on a Stihl MS170 chainsaw


The oil pump is pressed in from the bottom. There is a special bolt and bracket to make sure the pump is set to the right depth. Your local dealer should bea able to get the tool for you but it will be cheaper to have the shop do the work.

PS it is more common on this saw to have a dull chain act like it is not getting enough oil than to have a bad oiler.
I am gold certified and have been doing repairs since before the ms series. I have only replaced two oilers in that time.

Good luck

Chain is not getting oil


Start with the simple:
  • Make sure you have enough oil in the tank.
  • Then take off the bar and clean any saw dust out of the bar groove, especially by the oil holes. This can be accomplished with a raker adjustment tool or a putty knife. Next clean the oil holes in the bar and oil slot on the saw head.
  • If this doesn't solve your problem, your oil pump may need adjustment, or replacement.
  • Your owners manual will have the directions on how to adjust the oiler.

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.
