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.

The parent company is here:
I couldn't find a parts list or any source for parts. You can download the operator's manual. This appears to be a Chinese chainsaw. Parts may be difficult or impossible to find.
A blunted, hooked piece of wire can be used to pull the hose in the oil tank out. I recommend the filter be replaced. Work your way through the linkage cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. The oil pump is often behind the clutch. The saw can be operated without the bar and chain to verify oiler operation. Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly. GL
Once removed a GOOD local chainsaw sales/repair shop may recommend interchangeable parts.

Testimonial: "You have been a great help Thankyou"
Check that the oiler hole and the hole in the bar that it pumps into aren't clogged. The sawdust running under the chain and be deposited in the oiler hole in the bar until it plugs it solid. That will keep the oil from havintg a place to go and build up pressure.

Operator Manuals for McCulloch are difficult to find and will not help with this problem unless you want a repair facility. You can try here:
Operators Manuals: are much more difficult. I have dialed this number many times (Contact Us - All McCulloch Products 1 (800) 521-8559) and have yet to get a satisfactory response. Please try this! If enough of us try they will fix it!
You provided no model number; this one was given in a 3200 fuel problem I answered earlier. An IPL for the model you provided follows (this is actually a 3214, I have never found a 3200):
It is the only 600032-32 here:
McCulloch IPLs (all)
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for the oil system is sketchy at best. Oiler components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly:
There is a less detailed print here:
On this block of saws the oil pump is under the flywheel and there are many hoses. Please use the IPL to identify and locate oiler parts. I hope you find a burst hose. There are oil pump repair kits listed. Unless the pump has an obvious crack or hole I would not attempt to change it until I had exhausted all other possibilities.
This works for older MCs but MTD (this one) saws often deviate from the explanation. It will give you a little guidance if you try to locate a different IPL.
I know it is not plugged but this may also be helpful.

These are very difficult to work on, most saw shops will not attempt a repair. I hope the chainsaw Gods smile on your undertaking. Good Luck. If you have more questions or need additional help please reply below and I will get back to you. Thank you for using FixYa HTH
