You can always put some penentrating oil in the saw oil tube by the bar, spray it in with the plastic straw attatched. Sometimes this will clean things out. As far as the tube being un attatched,,,, taking case apart is usually the remedy - kinda takes a while... :) Hope this helps you, Rick.

I've been messin with my poulan 2150 that was doing the same thing. Good, fresh gas, good spark,etc. I noticed whenever I loosened the fuel cap it would literally spray gas out! alas, I removed the muiffler assy and the darn thing fired up the first pull! I've got the muffler parts soaking in gas right now and I'm sure this the problem. It just makes sense especially if you use the same 'mixed fuel' can for weed eater, blower,etc. Check your's out, it could very well be your problem too! GOOD LUCK

This isn't an easy repair. You'll need to take off the pto clutch and that might not be easy. The oiler is behind the clutch. There is a drive gear behind the clutch that drives the oiler. You should check to make sure oil is getting from the reservoir to the pump. That is easiest to do with the pump off the saw. If you take it to your local Stihl dealer, unless the pump is shot, this is not a complicated or expensive repair.

Stihl IPLs (exploded parts list) are propriatary, You can request one here: The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best; components are listed but on multiple illustrations.
