Take the fuel cap off with the tools and clean the thread on the cap and inside the saw. It may be a bit of wood chip causing it to lock on.

You have to have the choke partially on for the saw to run even after it is warm.Been that way since it was new.

It is running too lean on the mixture screws, unfortunatly the screws will have anti tamper sleeves on, you need to pull these back to richen the mixture, the way to do this without the correct tool, is to find a suitable self tapping screw, screw this into the end of the caps, when the end od the screw hits the screw below the cap will start to draw off, once it has come back enough it will allow you to enter a 2mm screw driver through the centre and make an adjustment to the screws beneath, un screw both screws ( anti clockwise ) 1/4 turn each, they are fuel screws not air screws so this will richen the mixture, try the saw again, if no better try a further 1/4 turn on the L screw.
Good luck

What is the fuel mixture for my new Poulan Pro 18'' chainsaw? It looks like 32:1 but not sure.Thanks! Don

If you use a mixture of 50:1 you can't go wrong.This is the industry standard and can be acheived by following the mixture guide lines one the bottle of oil.32:1 will make your saw smoke to the point of being almost unbearable and will foul the plug,so 50:1 is the mix your looking for.
