Question about Poulan Pro 16-Inch 38 cc Anti-Vibration Chainsaw #PP3516AVX
Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other problems. Be sure that you have fresh fuel mix in the tank. Check the quality of the spark at the plug--it should be blue and snappy (plug gapped 0.020"). If weak looking, try a fresh plug first--if no help, remove the left engine case to expose the flywheel and ignition module. Turn the flywheel magnets just under the module poles, insert a thin business card into the pole gaps, loosen the module screws to allow the module poles to contact the magnets. Tighten the screws, and rotate the flywheel slightly to remove the card. Rotate the flywheel one full turn to make sure the gaps don't close up further. Reassemble and test for spark again. If ok, try for running the engine. Be sure the engine 4-strokes when running unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting by adjusting the H jet needle. Hope this helps!
