Reeturn to wher you purchased it trade it for a different reconditioned saw. I think we know why the original owner returned it. Lou

Oiler mechanism to bar of ryobi 40cc 10532 18 inch


I get asked this question a lot , im gonna have to make a video on this subject someday .
but here:
1st ck your oil viscosity/SAE it should be 30 and say bar/chain oil
next dump out entire oil tank and wash out with kerosene (you'd be surprised what I seen come out)
then remove bar and chain , locate oil outlet it's in body of saw near adjustment screw , use a small can of air to blow in this port softly , use a touch more of kero to clean this all out , refill tank with proper oil !!!! and run saw (no need to put bar/chain back on yet ) might take several minutes but oil should start to flow out hole !! stop saw and reinstall bar/chain then run again .. fixed !! if no oil comes out ever your oil pump is gonna need some fixing

for a low cost oil I use filtered used motor oil cut down with a dab of kerosene

Car turns on shuts off 3 minutes later


If you mean the check engine light is on when the engine is running, I would start there and have the computer scanned for trouble codes.
Without knowing what is shutting down it will be tough to troubleshoot.
Could be a relay or coil or any number of other things.
If there are no codes in the computer, I would look for a failing relay. A sensor should set a code.

My saw runs great for about 5 minutes then it seems to over heat and it quits running.


There are several things that can cause this problem First if you run it until it quits will it start working again after it cools down. If this is the case the it is shutting off thermal switch on motor. This could be from saw needing cleaned or lubed, make sure chain is not to tight, don't force saw to hard,let it cut at its own pace. Make sure chain is sharp. Anything that causes excessive friction will increase motor temperature. It is possible that thermal switch is about worn out. Hope this helps. Thanks

I am going to assume you are following the warm start procedure in your manual. Most start problems with 2-cycle engines are caused by flooding.

Before you shut if off roll it to the side and loosen the fuel cap (vent tank - leave it loose until restart) Better? Repair fuel vent. No better carburetor needs small adjustment. This explains it better than I can but you will need to experiment some.
Carburetor Adjustment by Madsens.com
http://www.madsens1.com/saw%20carb%20tune.htm
CW is leaner; to lean will destroy the saw. If over tightened closed (CW) the adjustment screw faces are easily marred; marred adjustments are difficult to impossible to set properly.
Clean the air filter; adjusting with a dirty filter can cause a run lean condition once cleaned and the saw run.

There are 2 wav (sound - idle & full – may not be highlighted) files that I find most helpful, I think you will too.

Just because this is the most likely cause:
Start Procedure
Cold:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws); pull starter and listen for an attempt to start. once heard (usually two pulls; no more than 4)
  4. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  5. Push (open) choke pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
Warm:
  1. Ignition on/off to on
  2. Set compression release – optional step even if saw is equipped with a compression release
  3. Pull (close) choke, set fast idle (done when choke closed on some saws) – Do not pull with choke closed.
  4. Push (open) choke, pull starter until it starts. (usually first pull)
I hope you found this helpful. You can reply below if you need additional help.

Starts ok when cold. acts like it's out of fuel when hot.


Clean or change the sparkplug. Also make sure you have fresh gas and the proper fuel mix.

Saw will not start Husqvarna 350


Hi

An engine needs three things to run(fuel and air mixed together in the correct proportions,compresion of the fuel/air mixture and ignition).Make carb adjustments,check the compression and the spark from the sparkplug.Priming the engine(put some gas into the sparkplug hole).Try to start the engine.If engine is running only the gas from the cilinder,the chain saw has a fuel delivery problem.Disassembly the carb and clean the inner parts.Check the fuel and air filters,fuel hose and gas tank ventil.

good luck!savumihai71

Idle is off??


hi leobowdy

disassembly the carb and carefully clean it.Check the air filter,the fuel line and fuel filter,check the needle,lever,small spring and the screen filter from the carb.Check the sparkplug.
high speed H=2 turns,low speed L=2 1/2 turns,adjust T
When chain saw starts adjust H,L and T accordingly.

cheers savumihai71.

check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. also check the primer bulb for pin holes and proper seating/seal. i
