Question about Poulan ES350 16" Chain Saw
Saw started after about 5 pulls but did not rev. Dumped old fuel Dumped old fuel and put fresh in tank. Ran a few minutes but would rev. Plug has blue fire so is OK. For a while I thought fuel was not there. Took fuel system apart and found nothing. Plug is now getting wet but still want start. Saw has been used very little. Gas tank seems to have pressure as when releasing for more fuel it spews. Can anyone help. Thanks
Recheck the spark--if the plug is wet, it should have at least popped several times. Try a new plug gapped at 0.020". Check the fuel filter, air filter, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage--if replacing any, use original rubber lines only, not plastic. Does the primer bulb fill with fuel after several pumps? Remove the carburetor, and clean it inside and out with spray carburetor cleaner. Look closely at the lower chamber diaphragm which should be pliable with no holes or other damage. There is a small filter screen within the main body that can get plugged with stale fuel. Check the components between the carburetor and cylinder for any damage.

Testimonial: "Thanks, have done all that you mentioned except new plug and possibly a filter in fuel tank. I assumed with blue fire at plug that would mean it was OK. Again, Thanks!"
