Why does my Poulan chainsaw dies when I give it gas?
The fuel filter might be clogged. A clogged fuel filter is often caused by leaving old fuel in the chainsaw. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the fuel filter and cause the engine to stall.
Where do the fuel lines go on a Poulan chainsaw?
From the outside of the fuel tank (where the fuel line enters the fuel tank), use hemostats to pull the fuel return line until the plastic fitting engages the inside of the fuel tank (and secures the new fuel line to the tank). Connect the new fuel return line to the primer bulb assembly.
Does carburetor cleaner work?
Most carburetor cleaners do the work for you, no scrubbing required. Readily available and affordable. Most auto parts stores will carry a few brands of carburetor cleaner. Typically less than $20, carburetor cleaners are a cheap, efficient way to improve the overall performance of your vehicle.
Why does my chainsaw dies when I give it gas?
Because your chainsaw will idle, but dies when it is revved up to full power, it means that the filter is only partially clogged; it will allow enough fuel to the engine to run on idle, but not enough to sustain full throttle. If the filter becomes clogged, not enough fuel will reach the engine for it to run properly.
Why does my chainsaw bog out when I give it gas?
If your chainsaw is bogging down when you give it throttle, this is often a sign of improper gas-to-oil ratio. If there is too much gasoline in relation to the amount of oil used, this is known as a “rich mixture” and can cause the chainsaw to run poorly.
Can’t get my Poulan chainsaw started?
If your Poulan chain saw won’t start, the first thing to check is the fuel. Then turn the saw on, hold it firmly and pull the start rope in short, brisk pulls until it starts. If it doesn’t start within 15 pulls, the spark plug is likely wet-fouled. Remove it and check for moisture on the electrode.
Can you run a chainsaw without a primer bulb?
No, it won’t work depending on the engine design. Without going into details the primer bulb forces fuel to the carb jets and not the engine directly. It also forces pressure and vacuum. Without the bulb your carb will be flooded on a permanent basis.
