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.

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.

SOURCE: old homelite XL chainsaw pumping bar oil into engine while runnin

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.

SOURCE: my McCullough chainsaw series 3200 is leaking oil,

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):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/MCC/11-600032-32-Mac-3214-06%2F93-IPL-211229/139.11-600032-32-Mac-3214-06%2F93-IPL-211229.1.59.1.html
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:
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/McCulloch/139.59.html
There is a less detailed print here:
Chainsaws 32cc-35cc

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.
Oil System Plugged:

  1. Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain, clean the bar groove, any holes and passages on the rear of the bar (both sides, consider rotating the bar), if equipped with a sprocket nose ensure it rotates easily at least one complete revolution. Clean the saw oiler hole and channel. Insert a blunted, hooked piece of wire through the oil filler hole and pull the hose in the oil tank out. Pay attention to the screen or filter on the free end (clean or replace, difficult to determine serviceability). Start the saw and see if it oils when revved up (oozes down side of saw). If yes reassemble your saw. If no, continue with 2.
  2. Work your way through the linkage (use IPL to identify components and locations) cleaning and replacing any defective parts as you go. Carefully check the hoses for cracks especially at bends and connections. If equipped with an oil pump it is usually behind the clutch (clutch is a left handed thread). Please make extensive notes & some digital pictures will help during reassembly.
If it does not oil on completion of 1 it is most likely a bad oiler or worm gear (see IPL).

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

SOURCE: bar not recieving oil

The problem is related to the internal oil pump. The followings are the possibilities:

  • Clogged line from the oil reservoir to the pump.
  • Clogged line between the oil pump and the chainsaw bar orifice.
  • Faulty oil pump itself (common in well used/old device).
Hope it helps.

240e chainsaw leaking bar oil


It's quite common, if it's only leaking a little it's not really worth the trouble chasing the leak down. Your saw will have an online manual which may detail disassembly. Mine leaks a touch but not enough to bother me.

455e rancher oil tank leaks from the rubber hose that transports the oil to chain-bar. How do I change it and where can I buy it? Thanks


There are two hoses, the delivery hose and the pick up hose, to remove the delivery hose, start by removing the chain brake ( make sure is de activated before removing by pulling the hand guard fully back to the top handle ) now remove the clutch, there are two cut a ways in the clutch centre so as to insert a flat screw driver, now strike the end of the screw driver with a suitable hammer to jar the clutch off against the compression of the saw ( the clutch is just spun onto the crank with a left hand thread ) once off remove the sprocket and bearing, now remove the screw securing the silver protection plate over the bar pad and remove it, you can now just lift away the delivery hose, to replace the pick up you will have to remove the screw securing the oil pump and remove it, the pick up hose has a moulded grommet in the centre so you will have to diss lodge it to pry the hose from the oil tank, check out the web for sellers of these components, the part no.s are below.adw1_16.jpg

No oil flow to lubricate chainsaw bar and chain. Could oil port be blocked? Chainsaw starts and runs fine. I see no decrease in oil level in the bar oil reservoir. I cleaned all openings on the bar and...


have you drained oil tank and checked oil pickup filter ?

have you checked oil tank breather ?

next check the drum and worm oil pump driver , they should have no damage to them , and engage the drum and worm should engage the pump shaft correctly with no slipping or binding , check the oil outlet hose is clear and make sure the pick up hose is clear with no holes / tears in its length but mostly sounds like the oil pump and worm need replacing ?

if you find a worm pump and worm gear replace them and make sure the oil pick hose seals off the oil tank to pump opening ( because if it sucks air with will not pump properly ) and oil will leak out under gravity while sitting

Oil is leaking and burning when chainsaw is on


Hello Jimmy;
On an electric I cannot visualize anything getting hot enough to burn oli except the bar and chain. I am hesitant to get 2 deep into any repair, I fear it may be used to negate your warrenty. Try The first part of this and reply (below) about oil seepage with bar removed please. Is the model number a ZR10926?

Bar oil leaks when saw not in use


What you describe is common in many chainsaws. Try loosening then reseating the oil cap before putting her away to relieve any pressure built up in the oil tank. Check all the hose connections.
HusqvarnaUSA.com
http://www.husqvarna.com/us/homeowner/support/download-manuals/
Enter the 3 digit model number of you saw; uncheck "Manuals"; Check “Illustrated parts lists ”; then search.
Serial number breakdown: 06 1500198 (Husqvarna 359)
06 = year produced (prior to 2000 there is no space and only the first digit is used (61500198 could be 86 or 96))
15 = week in 2006 it was produced (March)
00198 = 198th unit produced that week regardless of model or type
