It can be the oil pump, it but first control it unmount the chain and chainring look at the guide bar there is a little hole in it its can be clogged but if not !! .start your engine without this guide bar on it and in a short time then there must be come oil out on the place where it should near that hole , if the oil is to old it can be thick use always special chainoil and dont forget it under all circumstances to use because the guide bar not only but the tool will become to hot and will become worn in a short time.
Fill the oiltank always full .
Best is the most synthetic oil you can get because of overtime the chain will become motionless after long inactivity and then you must burn your chain links free of wood rosin.
Some oils will do their protect job better , but the natural oils not all.

Is there a bar oil adjustment screw on the Poulan P4018WT chainsaw? No oil coming out of hole when running. Reservoir is full. If I blow air into the hole, a little oil will come out. Thanks.

No there is no adjustment for the oil, the oiler is a fixed unit, there will be a filter on the end of the oil pick up pipe, you can try draining the oil, fill the tank with cleaning fluid and give the tank a good rinse out, this will help to clean the the filter inside, if this does not help you will need to remove the clutch and sprocket to get to the oil pump, the oil pump piston has a nylon worm which may have stripped

You are right - they should continue to discharge simultaneously. However, there is a problem when the oil tank is a little more than one-third of the oil but not much more. If, however, is already half or more in the control channels and oiling the chain lubrication mechanism.

My saw simply will not pump chain oil. Iv'e run it with the bar and chain off and the pump works.Put it back together and nothing. Before reinstalling the bar I blew the saw clean. I had a Sears Poulin a...

Check that the bar oil ports are clean; there should be a small hole or slot on each side of the bar and these can become pluged with sawdust. Also clean the groove in the bar with a small screwdriver or bar cleaning tool every 8 hrs of operation.

If this does not fix the problem check the oil sump screen in the oil tank(usually on the end of a rubber hose); if no screen in tank: remove oil pump and clean(screen is sometimes in oil pump assembly).

Not getting any oil on the chain and the oil is full

Remove the bar and chain--clean the cover and case side. Start the engine and see if oil oozes out of the side port where the bar fits. Also, try the manual oil pump if it exists. If ok, clean the bar end oil-passages including the two channels that run from the large holes out to the chain groove on each side of the bar. Clean the entire chain groove, and check the tip sprocket for free turning. If no oil came out of the port, then remove the rear case which exposes the two tanks, the oil pump and the bracket that holds the bar to the engine. The oil pump runs by use of crankshaft impulses and has a diaphragm in the pump body that may be damaged. Also check the tank filter fitting. When you get everything back together, run the bar tip at speed near some cardboard--it should throw off a thin line of oil after several moments of fast running. Hope this helps!

Chain oil is pumping into area where pipe goes under square rubber bush, but not onto the top reservior so the chain can pick it up. Behind the aluminium plate.

Hello. If you haven't done so already ,remove the bar and chain and make sure the slot in the back aluminum plate lines up with the oil outlet hole if so ok. Use a thin tool (utility knife works) and scrape inside the chain groove of the bar to clean it out.Make sure the oil inlet hole in the bar is clean. If it doesn't work after doing this you may have a cracked oil tank,disconected oil line,or worn out oil pump.

Loss of power

Don't continue to try for high speed operation until the problem is rectified. Look for loss of chain oil or the chain is too tight. If it is equipped with a chain brake, make sure that it isn't dragging on the clutch rim. (It would be very hot or blue colored.) If no oil, remove the bar and chain--run the engine and watch for oil coming out of a port near the sprocket end. If it does so, clean the holes in the drive end of the bar, especially the small holes that connect to the chain track slot. Adjust the bar to tighten the chain enough that the chain doesn't begin to droop from the bar, yet turn freely by hand. If no oil comes out of the port, then the oil lines or the oil pump are/is faulty. Be sure to use bar oil only in the tank?

Remove the bar and chain, and start the engine. If oil comes out of the port near the sprocket, then clean all holes in the drive end of the bar including the small passages into the chain slot. If no oil coming from the port, then the pump may be bad or a line from the oil tank to the pump and/or from the pump to the port at the bar may be in bad condition. The oil tank end (inside) has a filter. If dirty oil has been put in, the filter may be plugged. On some saws there is provision for adjusting the flow rate.

Chainsaw oiler leaks oil out case and no oil on chain

Take the bar and chain off--run the engine--the oiler port from the case should discharge some oil. If none, you have trouble with the oil pump or the tubes to and from it. The oil tank may be leaking at the tank opening for the pickup tube. If oil appears at the oiler port, then there may be dirt/blockage within the oil passages in the bar end. Clean with compressed air.
