How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

What causes a chainsaw to leak oil? As the oil is pumped from the tank through to the guide bar, air begins to replace the space where the oil was previously stored. If there isn`t proper ventilation of the oil tank, a vacuum can occur and reduce the flow of oil to the guide bar.
Are chainsaws supposed to leak oil? To a certain extent, yes. A few drops are normal, as it`s most likely residual oil from the chain. But if there is a huge puddle or if the oil obviously isn`t coming from the chain, then something is out of order and you should investigate further.
The oil must be of a viscosity that adheres to the chain without being too thick or too thin. If you`ve chosen the wrong oil for the machine, that may be the reason it`s leaking from the bottom. Husqvarna strenuously warns users to never use waste oil in a chain saw.
In all but very exceptional cases there is nothing wrong with the chainsaw and what appears to be an oil leak is simply oil that has sprayed from the chain as it rotates at high speed, draining from the saw body and guide bar.
The fuel tank on your chainsaw is a plastic reservoir that stores fuel. The plastic can occasionally become cracked, and when this happens, fuel can leak out. There are several places on the fuel tank that can cause leaks, such as the grommet, the gasket, or the fuel cap.
There could be various causes: incorrect fuel mixture, carburation not calibrated properly, or a wet spark plug. In spite of their power and robustness, chainsaws are actually rather delicate machines that require careful and precise maintenance at every stage of their life cycle.
One of the most typical signs of oil leak is seeing a puddle of greasy-looking brown liquid under your car, after it has been parked for a while. (By contrast, if the liquid is pink, it`s transmission fluid; if it`s green or orange, it`s coolant.)
The chain saw should be oiled before each cut. Manual Oiling System: Lubricate the saw chain by pressing the bulb on the oil reservoir cap twice before making each cut. Hold the bulb down for 3-4 seconds on each press.
It`s normal to have a few oil drips a few hours after an oil change. However, any more than that, and you`ll need to determine where the leak is coming from. There are several ways to determine if the leak is coming from the drain plug, such as the gasket part being worn or dirty.
Leaking Oil Filter

The filter is one of the most common causes of an oil leak. Ideally, the oil filter should be replaced with every oil change. If you change your oil at home, you may forget this important step or the new filter may not be installed properly.

Yes, Bar`s Leaks is one of the only engine oil stop leaks that is compatible with all petroleum based oils, including synthetics. How does Bar`s Leaks Engine Oil Stop Leak work? After time, engine oil seals tend to dry out and shrink. Bar`s Leaks revitalizes these seals and makes them soft and pliable again.
STIHL currently recommends that you do not store or use fuel older than 60 days, and preferably no longer than 30 days, even with a stabilizer. Read more about storing your outdoor power equipment.
Tips on starting a flooded chainsaw

If you have tried several times unsuccessfully to start your unit, it is most likely flooded, especially so if you can smell gas. Flooded means there is excessive fuel pumped into the engine which has displaced the vital ingredient of oxygen for starting.

Many people wonder if a flooded chainsaw will fix itself? The answer is yes, but not always. By letting the chainsaw sit for about 20 minutes it will allow some of the fuel inside the engine to evaporate.
Naturally, the chain of your chainsaw will need to be oiled well to function perfectly. To make sure that it functions well, grab some WD-40 Multi-Use-Product. WD-40 works great for both – rust prevention and lubrication.

My 18 Inch chain saw will not keep oiling the Chain, I had it worked on and He said it was plugged. How do you unplug it with out taking it all apart. Is there a spot to blow air through. the Preacher..
ANSWER : Remove the chain bar and look just below the bolts holding it in place. You’ll see a small hole where the chain bar oil pump pushes out oil. Make sure this hole is clear then run the saw without the bar on.

Be CAREFUL of fingers!

You should see oil coming out of that hole. If not, you may need more serious work done with the saw (chain bar pump replacement).

On a husqavarna 362 xp special 71cc chainsaw very little oil is coming out to the chain i have removed the chain and bar and cleaned and still very little oil is making it to the chain what should i do ??
ANSWER : Check to see if there is an oil-volume adjustment screw located near the lower part of the chain where it goes into the cover, but mounted in the main case. It might be underneath the case in about the same location. Turn it CCW somewhat, if found, and check for oiling by holding the bar tip running at speed near some cardboard. If properly oiled, it will throw off a thin line of oil after several moments. If there is no adjustment, then you will have to investigate the oil pump, lines, and filter/valve in the oil tank. Make sure to clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar. Hope this helps!

Dont know what type off oil to put in the bar and chain tank on the chainsaw
ANSWER : Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

All Bar oils are SAE 30W non-detergent oil. Go down to the local auto parts supply and buy the cheapest SAE 30W you can find…. SAE 30W is SAE 30W regardless of what brand is on it and for bar oil it is not an issue.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

What type of GAS and OIL need for the chain saw?
ANSWER : Hi gjoun…
You will need “Chain and Bar” oil to lube the chain and bar. Special oil made just to lubricate the chain and bar as the chain is running.
For the engine you can use the low grade of gasoline…and 2 cycle oil.
Fuel mix…50 to 1 = 1pint of 2 cycle oil to 6 gallons of gasoline.

16″ Electric Chain Saw: what kind of oil is used for electric chain saw…
ANSWER : I assume you are asking about the oil for the chain. Any good quality “Bar and Chain Oil” will do fine. Do not use motor oil you use in your car engine as it will not properly lube the chain and will result in quicker dulling and early demise of the chain.

You can get the “Bar and Chain Oil” at most hardware stores or Farm Supply stores.
