Question about Poulan Wild Thing 2375 18" Gas Chain Saw 2.5 Cuin
Always keep in mind that you need 4 things to make combustion happen: Fuel, Spark, Oxygen (Air), and compression. One or more of these is missing and we need to figure out who is missing the party.
Let’s start with the basics:
Does it have gas? (Fuel)
Is the kill switch on? (Spark)
When you pull the cord slow does it give intermittent firm resistance? (Compression)
Is the air filter clean (Air)
Now you need to look at a few details:
Pull the spark plug out and checked for spark. This requires you to hook the spark plug up and let the plug lean up against the metal part of the head. Pull the cord, should be easy (no compression) and check for spark. Don’t hold plug with fingers as you may get a jolt. If no spark, try a new plug, still no spark check the switch and wiggle it around. Even if you have spark I like to install a new spark plug for this next test. With new plug in, pull at least 10 times, pull the plug and see if it looks wet. If it is wet, it is getting fuel.
Hope this helps.
