Get some sta-bil fuel stabilizer. add twice the amount recommended on the bottle for storage to your mixed gas. Empty out chainsaw tank and refill with the new mix. Rub for 2 minutes, then shut off. Remove cover over carb and spray inside carb, soaking it down good and cleaning all internal surfaces visible - allow to sit overnight.
Next day
Spray down carb with carb cleaner for about 15 seconds. Start saw, allowing 2 minutes to warm up and reduce choke. If saw stalls, restart and spray inside carb as it runs with choke on - keep motor at the highest rpms you can as you spray - spray in 2 second bursts, not allowing motor to stall from spray. If it stalls, change sparkplug and try again. You have varnish build up in the carb and are trying to remove it so the carb will work without the choke. This may take some time but it is the exact procedure I used for my Poulan Team Realtree last spring - I spent about an hour spraying and staring before it ran without the choke.
Good luck!!

Poulan Pro Wild Thing will only run with choke out. Carb has been fully rebuilt and new lines added. As soon as throttle is pulled and choke pops off, engine dies. Any recommendations/suggestions? Thanks,...


If not already done replace the fuel filter in the tank, it is obviously fuel starvation, if no better increase the the fuel mixture on the H and L screws ( turn anti clockwise 1/4 turn on each to start with)

I have a poulan wild thing and it will start just fine, but it only runs about 1 to 2 minutes and then it won't stay running. Does anybody know what it might be or what i can check. Thank you Fred


Could be the fuel pump in the carb.Should be a small rubber hose going from the carb to the crank case the simple fix would be if it is cracked.That would be a good simple start.

It is running lean, they always need to run a little on the rich side free running, once the engine is loaded it will then need the excess fuel, it runs ok without the bar and chain because there is no load, start by replacing the fuel filter in the fuel tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of fuel leakage, replace if reqired, if the carb has standard adjuster screws, increase the H screw by 1/4 turn out ( anto clockwise ) this will richen the mixture.

My poulan wild thing chainsaw has 3 tuning screwes h,l,t and they have all been messed up how many turns out do they all need to be from all the way in


Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Check the fuel lines for decay or other damage. T is the idle speed screw and not critical--just back off about two turns CCW at first. Turn H and L jet screws CCW from stops 1-1/2 turns each--this should allow the engine to start and run. Start the engine and allow to warm up--if the idle speed is too high or low, adjust the speed screw so that the engine continues to run, but the chain is not trying to turn. When warmed up, pull the throttle full on and adjust H needle CW until the engine starts to speed up. Proper final adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes unloaded, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L jet screw CW until the engine idles fairly well, but still allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. If adjusted too far, the engine will 'gasp' when throttled. Set the idle speed screw to obtain the above conditions. Hope this helps!

My poulan wild thing 2375 bogs out when throttle


Make sure that the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. Check the carburetor screws and nuts for tightness. After turning both needles CW to stops (lightly), back them out CCW 1-1/2 turns each. Start the engine and allow to warm up. Open the throttle and adjust the H needle CW somewhat until the engine speeds up, but is 4-stroking. Correct adjustment is when the engine 4-strokes, but immediately 2-strokes when cutting. Release the throttle and adjust L CW till the engine runs fairly smoothly, but allows the engine to 'follow the throttle'. Set the idle speed screw so that the chain doesn't turn, but the engine keeps running. Hope this helps!

Poulan Wild thing 2375 will not stay running


Try checking the muffler. Some models have a screen that will get clogged with carbon and the saw won't keep running. Clean the screen with a wire brush.

What is the "T" adjustment on my Poulan Wild Thing?


The "T" position is just a mechanical stop for the Throttle.  It adjusts the idel speed by keeping the throttle from closing all of the way.  The "H" and "L" screws adjust carburator jets that feed the motor at High and Low speeds.

Some Poulans vent thru a fuel line going from the tank to the carburetor. Some vent thru the cap but eventually the duck bill valve starts leaking fuel. Then I suspect some people change that cap to one without a vent, which causes the problem you are describing.
