My stihl chainsaw has been running great in the past years

My stihl chainsaw has been running great in the past. A little hard starting but once you got it going it was fine. I started using the saw this season and it just quit running. I replaced the plug and checked the spark and found it to be weak. Still blue but faint. I cleaned the coil contact and the flywheel but still the same. I checked the compression and found it to be fine. I checked all wires and connections and they were fine. After trying to start it I checked the plug to see if it was loaded with gas, but it was dry. After geting frustrated with it I tried a little either and it still would not start.

Try this. all stihl machines have a fuel filter on the end of the fuel line inside the tank. if you get a hooked peice of wire you can hook it out through the petrol filler cap. these are very fine and may not looked blocked. you can remove the filter element from its holder to clean it. you can also try the saw without the filter for a short time to see if this is the problem.

What is the best chainsaw for a female to use, need easy start, no electrical?


None, they are too dangerous. You need strong arms in case of kick back.

But if you must, a national and well known brand like Stihl or Husquvarna. The Stihl MS170 might suit you.

"I am very satisfied with every aspect of this saw and love how light weight it is. It starts easily and runs great. I have cut up to 16 inch diameter oak, and it did a great job, considering the size of the saw. The local dealer was very knowledgeable and very helpful."

The STIHL MS 170 is the perfect lightweight chainsaw for homeowners seeking a great value. Compact, lightweight with just the right amount of power, the MS 170 makes quick work of trimming or cutting small trees, fallen limbs after a storm, and other tasks around the yard. And even at its great price, the MS 170 has many of the same design features the professionals depend on.

Please make sure you also get the safety gear. Vibration proof gloves to stop 'white finger', hard hat, visor, ear defenders, and most importantly chainsaw pants which has carbon fibres to jam the chain rather than cutting your leg off.

Adjust the air/fuel mixture. Look at your owners manual or online because it gets a little tricky because of climate changes.

Re: Stihl 038 Mag AV. When following the operators manual starting for a cold start, my saw can a be very ugly beast. Quite often it will misfire and the starting cord will recoil so violently that it...


I would check the magneto key in the crank,could be sheared,allowing the timing to advance causing the firing of the spark before the piston reaches the top,hence the violent pullstart

Stihl chainsaw (Farm Boss) - chain oiler has stopped working, how do I check the fault ?


Hi John...
You will need to remove the bar and chain...behind the bar is the auto oiler it works on the shaft of the chainsaw, you will have to remove it and clean all the outlets for the oil to the chain.

My Poulan chainsaw is hard to start and will not re-start once it is warm. Any suggestions besides junk it.


Spend $ 40 for a tune up at a local chainsaw seller/mechanic. Most Stihl outlets are very good. It sounds like carburation needs adjustment, but they also do a good visual inspection. Mine get done about every 3 years worth of use. HTH
