I have a poulan 4218 chain saw will start but when i pull throttle it dies, open gas cap and gas sprays out


There is a air/fule ratio valve on the side of the carbarator it's adjustable with a flathead screwdriver. Turns this all the way in clock wise then back it out 1 1/2 turns counterclockwise. Once the equipment starts you may have to make some slight adjustments. For a person that dose not know making these adjustments can be difficult. One tip I can give is once it starts you should hear a trickling sound that sound normally means it's in its correct adjustment.
Check a few thing before you do any adjusting.
Check that your exhaust is not clogged dirt dobbers tend to make nest in the small hole.
Check that the fule filter and lines are in good working condition.
Check spark plug or replace.
And replace any old gas. Gas these days has a poor quality and shelf life. Gas that goes beyond 30days should be replaced. Also try to buy non Ethanol gasoline

also check the air filter. If these things check out ok then proceeded with the adjustments. If it still won't run correctly you may need to clean the carberator. Let me know if you need any additional help.
Thanks

Seems my Poulan Chainsaw P3314 is flooding.


Ron, the excessive gas could be the result of continued start attempts with a weak spark or a bad plug or a carboned plug. If none of the carb adjustments have not been turned or twisted prior, I'd suggest obtaining a fresh spark plug. Make sure the gap is correct. Blow out the cylinder with compressed air to vent all the residual gas/oil within. Ground the new plug against the engine and pull the cord. You should observe a fairly bright spark at the plug. If no spark you could have a faulty coil/ignition module. If a bright spark is present, install the plug and give it full choke and attempt to start. It should attempt to start within a few pulls....when it does, go immediately to HALF-choke and pull again and it should start.

Poulan snowblower won't start; it backfires and sometimes starts but only lasts a few minutes if lucky; I've replaced spark plug and gas.....no luck


Gotta take the Bowl off the carburetor and see if the Jet is Plugged up.
Today's Ethanol gas ills carburetors. New gas wont help a gummed up carb from leftover old gas.

I have a poulan pro 4218 it was running great when i put it away last year . went to start it this year put in fresh fuel i have a spark used starting fluid doesnt even try to start what gives?


If there is good fuel in the tank and there is a good spark, there is only two reasons why it will not fire up, the ignition timing is out ( sheared flywheel key ) or there is too little compression ( engine has seized at some time trapping the rings )

How to remove chainsaw clutch in poulan pro 4218 avl


you have to buy a hard plastic plug which you place into the spark -plug hole. they are inexpensive. Be sure to get the right one with the proper thread.

You then remove the bar and chain. Next, using a socket and wrench you turn the clutch assembly clockwise. (as opposed to counter-clockwise). It will loosen up . then you remove the clutch and install whatever you want. Leave the plug in until you are finished then install everything and tighten up the clutch fairly tight. Do not over tighten. You may break the piston. Turning the clutch thread clockwise this time.

I have a poulon pro 42cc saw that wont start. dont think its getting gas cuz i tried to flood it with the primer but no gas on the spark plug.


The primer will not flood it, all the primer does on these saws is pushes fuel through the carb. If this is a new saw, it needs a carb adjustment, a very common problem on poulan products these days. It's covered by the warranty at any of their service dealers (you can locate one on poulan's website).
How old is the gas you are using? If the mixture is more than 30 days old, make a new mix and try again.
Check for spark. Pull the boot off of the plug. Hold the boot near something metal and pull the starter. If you see a spark, you are good. If you don't, you may have a problem with the coil.
