Did this video help you?

Chris Rife: I have a poulan 38CC chainsaw I bought last year, it starts up great, idles great, I can hold the throttle wide open it works great... soon as I let off the throttle it dies every damn time, then I gotta go through starting steps all over again to get it to run... i dunno ANYTHING about small engines and no clue whats causing this problem. Its only a $150 chainsaw but still id like it to idle when I let off the throttle, dont wanna walk around with throttle wide open all the time.

Bruce Keister: I just picked up a Poulan 3416 from a guy who said it wouldn't run. He had been trying to get it to run for the last couple months but couldn't. It was full of gas and bar oil so I pulled the choke, pumped the primer and on the second pull, it fired right up. I kept it going but it wanted to stall at idle. I kept goosing it for two or three minutes and it got better but still wouldn't stay running. I will try adjusting the carb as well as the idle. I think the guy who owned it might have messed with the settings trying to get it running.

By the way, my saw has an Oregon bar on it like the one in your video. Is that a replacement bar or is that stock. I am used to a regular Poulan bar on them.

Thanks for the video.

Jake Miller: thanks a bunch

Steven Hardy: I have a 42cc Craftsman chain saw . I took the carb apart cleaned it all out .With the needles L & H out. Should i be able to blow thru the low side hole of the needle valve like i can the high side ? The high side blows thru easy. Also on any carb video if you know the factory number of turns out to start any saw you should say it . Thanks much .

Robert Fleury: donny boy. I have a crafstman like this one and my issue is when i fire up my saw it over revs and then dies within seconds why is it revving like crazy. lmk thanks rob

Dillon Castro: what if when you hold the trigger down it still wont start

Matthew Cox: +donyboy73 Thank you so much for this information. I acquired that same chainsaw. The issue I'm running into is the chain wants to spin on it's own when you get it started. Is that due to the idle being too high?

D. Murks: Its easy to take the bar and chain off...Is this ok to do?

laweez john: is the wood shark adjusted the same, cuz it will not attempt to start? it seems to be dumping gas in cylinder. is the carb junk?

jamestee007: THANX very helpful

A aa: Great video. What is the purpose of the H high screw? Have you worked with Makita chain saws at all? I have one that is real hard to start

frayedknottt: Great video L and H is now in place and my 40 dollar craftsman saw will now idle. I myself never new what L and H was lol Now the only problem i had after watching the video was adjusting them, they had no slots for screwdriver. U have to have a special tool lol. I used a small flat head screwdriver and a 16-14 butt connector Its blue in color I shoved the metal center piece out of it with a ice pick and then shoved the flat head screwdriver into it and then used in on the low and high mixture screws the butt connector when shoved into the screws grab the groves so that u may turn them. I priced this special tool on ebay and they wanted around 12 to 50 dollars for it I don't think so lol thanks man again

Al Silva: Hi, I need a little help, I just bought an old Poulan 2300 AV chain saw, the low & high screws on the carburetor were screwed all the way in I have no idea where to set the screws to. where do I start?

Thank you,

Gerald Legault: Hello :) I'd like to thank you for making this video, I recently bought a good used 2150 for $20, richened it up cause it was running lean, then had to readjust the carb after a flooding issue, then carb rebuild and new lines and she's perfect. I've done a video on it on my channel if you want to take a look. But thank you for this and your other videos. Best refrences on youtbe :)

Keith Kelly: Good Video...Thank You. I have a little Poulan 2075 that I am trying to get running.

sony xray: Thanks for the video, I race and tune 125cc 2 stroke bikes but the chainsaw is a whole different animal!  Just need some fine tuning and its good!  Your instructions are the best!

Sam HashBrown: hey there. i gotta question. my poulan 306a's chain wont stop turning when it comes to an idle. what should i do?

pgwadd: Hi Gary,
  I had the same thing happen to my Poulan Shark.  I followed Donyboys video on how to rebuild the carb, and when I opened it up the little screen was full of dirt that was blocking gas from getting into the carburetor.  Cleaned it out, put back together, it fired right up.  DONYBOY, thanks for the advice and keep up the good work!.

Steve Perue: I think I know how to fix all Poulans. I have one still. 2 words garage sale. Then use that toward a real chainsaw like Stihl,huskvarna, craftsman, black & decker, echo, blue max . . . . .  all work better. lol

Gary Christopher: I have a brand new Poulan Pro 5020AV. Ran well for two days, now will not start. thought it was flooded, followed procedure for flooded engine, would not start. Replaced spark plug. Wouldn't start. Let sit for two full days. Still will not start. Using brand new gas/oil mix at 40:1 as recommended. Gas in Iowa is 10% ethanol. I was able to find some without alcohol, so my mix is now only 5% ethanol. Am at my wits end with this thing. I have two tons of wood to cut and all I have is a $200 door stop. Any ideas?
