SOURCE: Poulan-Pro 295 leaks excessive bar-chain oil

Most saws have a tendacy to leak after they are used. After use, just "burb" the oil fill cap to relieve any pressure. The closed oil system will siphon out all of the oil.

SOURCE: I have a Poulan Pro 380 that is leaking bar oil.I

I have 7 chainsaws. 6 of them if I forget to drain the oil reservoir will oil the surface of what they are sitting on. What you are seeing is normal.

IMO; use of the oiler creates a siphon. Any oil left in the tank will continue to siphon until the reservoir is empty. I could be wrong, I have been before.

Draining the tank works, nothing else I've tried does. HTH

SOURCE: Bar oil leaks into storage case when chainsaw not

The easy fix is to drain the oil tank when not in use. Many saws will leak some oil initially, but should not continue to do so. If it is making a large puddle, oil is getting past the oil pump which may be worn from long use. Make sure the tank vent is not plugged as heat from the engine can increase pressure in the tank thus forcing oil out. Hope this helps!

Puddle of oil in case when not in use. If using it then shut off and sit it down leaves puddle of oil where it was sitting.


There will always be an amount of oil on the bottom of the saw, the oiling system is a constant loss system ie onto the chain and away, there are many places for the oil spray to sit in covers, which when sat will drip out, they rely on saw dust to dry the oil up, however if there is not a great deal of saw dust about the oil will not get dryed up and will drip under the saw.Unless the oil leak is excessive i would leave well alone.

Bar oil leaking constantly. How do I fix it?


These saws are of the self oiling type there is no tip or bottle it consists of a tank and a channel the oil flows thru and on to the bar by gravity. There is a type of bar oil system on some saws that come with a button you push which In turn pumps oil onto the bar. But the poulan is not one of them. I have a 15 year old farm hand 20" bar and a two year old poulan wild thing 18" and both leave there oil in the case when sitting I beleive the fix would be drain it after use and clean up.

Poulan-Pro 295 leaks excessive bar-chain oil


It's a seal somewhere either on the reservoir, or the 'feed' to the bar.
But in the short term, if you must use it, the simplest way of stopping the leak, is to not store it with any oil in it, until you locate the source of the leak.
That should help, but I'll wish you good luck never the less ;)
& plz don't forget to rate, thankyou :)

Loosten the oil filler cap before putting it away. The tank is pressurized to force oil to the chain. Relieve the pressure before storing. Lou
