Start by removing the hose from the tank and replace the filter on the end, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of cracking, or fuel escape, if so replace the hose, if no better, try slackening the fuel filer cap when the saw sarts to die, if it picks up again you need to replace the fuel tank breather.

Chain saw smoked than stopped. 6 months later I turned it on an it ran. Tried again later and it will not run.

I would say the fuel in the tank is either stale or has too much, or incorrect oil mixed with it, drain the tank, rinse it out a couple of times with a fresh fuel/oil mix, now fill with fresh fuel/oil mixed at 50-1 and try again.

I have a 18" Craftsman gas chain saw. It will not keep running, after two or three cuts it just stops and cannot be started again until it sits for 15 to 20 minutes. I have cleaned the air filter and...

Try removing the fuel cap for a moment, then try restart. If ok, check the fuel vent for plugging. Check the fuel filter for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Check for spark when it stops--it may be the ignition module failing when hot. Check for sawdust and dirt plugging the ventilation system--blow it out with compressed air. Does the engine 4-stroke at speed when not cutting, but does 2-stroke when cutting? Make sure the chain is being oiled while running. Hope this helps!

I am having trouble with my husqvarna 61 .after running for about 10 minutes the machine stops revving as if it has run out of petrol, blip the throttle and it picks up again for a few seconds.any ideas?

Check to see if your tank vent is plugged.Fill tank full of fuel and run saw till you start to hear saw having problems,when this happens loosen fuel cap and see if it helps.Loosening the fuel cap will let air back into the tank if your vent is plugged.

Sears 18'' Model 358.351081

I think jerr is right about a plugged fuel vent but not all are in the fuel cap. Start it, if necessary lay it on its side and loosen the fuel cap. If it continues to run it is a plugged vent. Contact Sears determine the Poulan model number and we can help you find an illustration of your fuel system. HTH

the coils on your gas valve are going out , this is why it will work at first and stop , the coils heat up and wont open the valve again after they are heated.
I thought they were some what cheaper than they are now but still not too bad. you can try this part number search on ebay for the best price I can find.
