Question about Poulan Pro Chain Saw 46cc 20"

1 Answer

I have a model 295 which was running, and suddenly it wouldn't get gas to the carburator. It has plenty of gas in the tank, and it gets a spark. No matter how many times I pull it, it won't start.

Most likely a clogged fuel line, or clogged fuel filter.

Sounds like the fuel pump isn't working, you can buy service kits though quite often corrosion will prevent you from removing the valves.. or it could simply be the fuel cap isn't venting, remove fuel cap and see if the engine continues to run!

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Will not start


THE BLOWERVAC COULD HAVE GAS PROBLEM OR A NO SPARK TO SPARK PLUG PROBLEM. TO DETERMINE THE SPARK PROBLEM FIRST, REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG, LOOK AT THE END OF THE SPARK PLUG (ENGINE END) TO SEE IF IT IS DRY OR WET WITH GAS, THEN RE-ATTACH THE SPARK WIRE WHILE THE SPARK PLUG IS LAYING LOOSE AND PULL THE ROPE TO TURN THE ENGINE AND LOOK TO SEE IF THERE IS SPARK OCCURING AT THE SPARK PLUG. IF THERE IS SPARK PRESENT, YOU HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH SPARK. REPLACE THE PLUG AND WIRE. IF NO SPARK CHECK YOUR WIRE LEADING TO THE SPARK PLUG TO MAKE SURE IT HAS AN ELECTRICAL CONNECTION AT BOTH ENDS, SPARK PLUG END AND ENGINE END. IF LOOSE FIX THE CONNECTION THEN RE-TRY THE SPARK/ENGINE TURN OVER BY ROPE METHOD AGAIN TO SEE THEN IF YOU HAVE SPARK. IF THEN YOU DO HAVE SPARK, RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG TO THE ENGINE AND RE-ATTACH SPARK PLUG WIRE TO THE SPARK PLUG AND TRY THEN TO START THE ENGINE.
IF THERE WAS A WET PLUG WHEN YOU FIRST REMOVED THE SPARK PLUG AND YOU NOW HAVE SPARK AT THE SPARK PLUG, YOUR ENGINE SHOULD START.
IF IT STILL WILL NOT START AFTER THE SPARK CHECK, I WOULD REPLACE THE SPARK PLUG WITH A NEW ONE.
IF THEN IT WILL NOT START, THEN REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG AGAIN AND POUR A SMALL AMOUNT OF GAS INTO THE ENGINE SPARK PLUG HOLE. A PINT PLASTIC OIL CAP FULL OF GAS IS ENOUGH, DO NOT OVER USE MORE THEN THAT.
THE RE-ATTACH YOUR SPARK PLUG AND SPARK PLUG WIRE AND TRY STARTING THE ENGINE AGAIN. IT MAY TAKE SEVERAL PULLS TO GET THE EXTRA GAS IN THE SPARK HOLE TO BE USED UP BEFORE YOU START TO HEAR IT RUN ALITTLE AND FIRE NOW AND THEN.
IT SHOULD START THEN.
IF THEN IT DOES NOT START, YU HAVE USED UP THE GAS YOU PUT INTO THE ENGINE BY THE CAP FULL METHOD AND IT IS NOT GETTING GAS BY THE GAS TANK SUPPLY.
THIS MEANS THEN YOU HAVE AN IN LINE GAS LINE FILTER THAT IS PLUGGED UP OR YOUR GAS MAY BE OLD IN THE GAS TANK. IF GAS IS NOT OLD AND FILTER IS NOT PLUGGED, THEN YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE GAS LINE LEADING TO THE ENGINE CARBURATOR TO SEE IF IT WILL FLOW FROM THE GAS TANK OUT THE GAS LINE SUPPLY HOSE. IF IT DOES FLOW FREELY, THEN YOU DO NOT HAVE A GAS SUPPLY PROBLEM,
AS LONG AS YOUR GAS IS NOT OLD GAS. OLD GAS WILL GO BAD IN TIME. I'D REPLACE THE GAS WITH NEW AND TRY AGAIN.
IF THIS DOES NOT WORK, THEN ITS CARBURATION CLEAN UP TIME.
IT WILL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE ENGINE BY A FEW BOLTS, HOSE'S REMOVED AND TAKEN APART AND CLEANED. TARNISH FROM GAS AND OIL WILL BLOCK THE CARBURATOR JETS AND VACCUM PUMP FROM WORKING PROPERLY. CLEAN AND REPLACE, TRY AGAIN TO START ENGINE.
MORE GAS IN SPARK PLUG HOLE TO GET GOING MAY BE ANOTHER ATEMPT AFTER CARBURATOR CLEAN UP.

Don't leave gas in the tank, or add additive to gas >>> you know that but the next reader might not know.

If you are able to get washer running by spraying WD-40 or some other accelerant directly into carburetor but engine will not continue running ... there are 3 suspects: 1) dirty air filter 2) the exhaust port is clogged with carbon, dirt, etc 3) the carburetor has given out or no gas is getting to carburetor

2) Check exhaust port >>> we finally broke the screen out with a screwdriver so it wouldn't bother us any more
3) Carburetor ... you have spark but the gas is either not getting to carburetor or carburetor is not letting gas in. Pull off rubber line going to carburetor and see if gas flows out. If gas gets to carburetor and all the conditions above are met, then the carburetor needs gum out or rebuilding or replacement

Could be the fuel pump. Try hitting the bottom of the fuel tank a few times while someone try's to start it, if it starts then the pump is on it's way out.
