Question about Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
Craftman/pullan 18" 42 cc chain saw model # 358-3650802. this saw seems to start and run ok when cold. after running hard for apx 20 minutes or so and shutting down for refueling/oil and let saw cool down for 10-15 minutes the saw does not want to start. It acts like it is out of fuel or possibly a vapor locking situation. I am cutting in about 80 degree weather. I have checked the air filter, its clean. I have checked the spark plug and it is a mocha tan color on the tip. I do not have a manual for this saw but I have automotive mechanic experience just not much experience with small engines. I could sure use some advise/ideas on this matter.
Thanks very much
Clean or change the sparkplug. Also make sure you have fresh gas and the proper fuel mix.
