Poulan wild thing 18" Won't Start, Plug is wet

I have to remove the plug, muffler and air filter and blow it out with air hose.
Then it starts, but only for a minute before dying. Then the plug and muffler are soaked in gas again. Fuel tank vent is rubber nipple built into gas cap and appears clear.

Check the air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Remove the carburetor, open the lower chamber and check the diaphragm for any holes or cracking. Also check the small fuel control valve that the diaphragm controls--either can cause flooding if not working properly. Hope this helps!

Won't start plug is grey, and it was getting hot last time used...wild thing 18", had a torch 7 plug,2009'


A grey plug is not good, i think before you do anything else you should remove the muffler and take a look at the piston skirt through the open exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and the machine will have to come apart to assess the damage.

Things to check, drain the fuel tank and re fill with fresh fuel oil mix, remove the fuel filter from the fuel tank and replace, check the condition of the fuel hose up to the carb, if cracked then replace, remove the spark plug, rest it on top of the cylinder ( away from the plug hole ) crank the engine and look for a spark, if that is ok, remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston through the exhaust port, any signs of scuffing and it will need to come apart to assess the damage.

Wont start


Remove the spark plug and check for spark. If snappy and blue with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020", then pour a little fuel mix into the plug hole and try for start. If it pops or runs for a few seconds, then look for fuel delivery problems. Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. If no help, remove the carburetor, disassemble and clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner. Inspect the diaphragm in the lower chamber for flexibility with no holes or cracks. Make sure the fuel is fresh and properly mixed with a modern synthetic saw oil. Be sure to shake the container thoroughly each time time just before filling the tank to prevent oil starvation. Hope this helps!

Poulan 2375le chain saw. just replaced primer bulb, gas lines and diaphram. also has new gas and spark plug. will fire up but wont stay cranked especially when I mash the throttle. please help..


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner and muffler for plugging. Be sure the fuel and oil mix is thoroughly shaken just before filling the tank each time to prevent oil starvation. Set the plug gap to 0.020" and test the spark for being blue and snappy. If weak looking, remove the left side engine cover to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel so that the magnets are just under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, turn the flywheel somewhat to remove the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Replace the cover and retest spark--if ok, try for start. Hope this helps!

How to tune a sears chain saw that won;t stay running


Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor fasteners are tight. If no help, remove the flywheel cover and reset the ignition module pole clearance using a thin business card for a gauge. Turn the flywheel magnets under the module, insert the card into the gaps, loosen the module screws, and allow the module to contact the magnets through the card. Tighten the screws and rotate the flywheel somewhat to release the card, then turn the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gap doesn't close further. Try for spark at the plug--it should be blue, and snappy with a fresh plug gapped at 0.020". Hope some of this helps!

Poulan Wild Thing will not restart after 15 min.


Try venting the gas cap for a moment and attempt restart. If it starts, check for a plugged tank vent which should be a bronze disk set into the tank casting and located above the filler cap under the left side cover. When you changed the plug, was it wet with fuel inside? Also, check for spark at the plug when it won't start. You may have ignition problems that occur with engine heat. Hope some of this helps!

Saw won't start


Remove the spark plug and check for a snappy, blue spark. If nothing or very weak, try another plug. If still nothing, remove the switch wire from the ignition module. If still nothing, replace the ignition module. Use a thin business card to set the gap and have the magnets under the module poles. You should have spark at this point. If still won't fire, but has spark, try spraying some starting fluid into the plug hole, install the plug, and try to start. If you get a couple of pops, then check the fuel lines, fuel filter, and make sure the screws are tight on the carburetor. If still won't run, you may need to clean and re-kit the carburetor. Make sure the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. Hope some of this helps!
