Home depot,lows any hardware store,call around first and if you mean bar oil 30 weight oil non detergent oil will work just fine.3 in one oil will burn the bar and chain because it’s to light.Tighten chain so you can pull chain 1/8 inch from bottom of bar then pull spark plug cover off to the side and screw driver cross ways to pull chain to check for binding.Please use gloves for this.I have someone hold saw or sit on the motor after I sharpen the chain.Stay away from the end of the bar cause that’s where kickbacks happen.Keep the saw off to the side of your body when cutting.One last thing when chain is sharp big chips,dull sawdust until you learn how to sharpen best let saw shop do it for you.

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 :
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.
Use canola oil – Canola oil is currently the most common environmentally compatible chain-and-bar lubricant.
Why use oil? You want lubrication of the actual chain against the bar. You don`t want to chain to burn – which is what might happen if there`s too much friction. Without oil, it causes frictional force on the motor in the chainsaw as well.
Absolutely. 10w40 is thick enough to mostly stay on the chain. Regular bar and chain oil have additives that keep the oil from slinging off the chain. This is why it is always recommended to use regular chain oil.
Use for lubricating moving parts, pivot points and bearings. Lubricate small to larger motors found in sewing machines, fans, lawnmowers and trimmers, drills, chainsaws, and other tools.
If you run a chainsaw without bar oil, it`s likely that the chain will heat up and eventually break. This can cause extensive damage to the chainsaw and may even require a new chain and bar. It`s imperative that you use the correct amount of bar oil.
The hydraulic oil is designed to lubricate hydraulic systems and is not designed to be used with chainsaws. It may cause damage to the moving parts of the chainsaw and may also cause the saw to malfunction.
Olive oil is another option you could bank on for your chainsaw bar and lube. If you have a handy bottle of olive oil nearby, it`ll work just fine for your chainsaw bar and lube. It has good lubrication properties, and it is biodegradable.
So, aside from brand bike chain lube, the most common options people opt for include olive oil, household greases, and cooking oil. The main reason being they are all easy to access at home.
One particularly bad idea is the use of motor oil, especially old, used motor oil that has been drained from an engine: Motor oil is not the right viscosity for lubricating chains. Debris contained in used motor oil can wear down the bar`s groove and damage the chain.
Four-stroke engine oils should not be used in two-stroke applications (and two-stroke engine oils shouldn`t be used in four-stroke engines). Two-stroke engine oils are generally lighter, lower and ash and made to be consumed in two-stroke engines, so they do not last as long as four-stroke engine oils.

Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain
Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you’re going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.
I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?
It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.
What kind of oil for the chainbar – Poulan Wild Thing Chainsaw Oil Line
It takes bar oil and can not be exchanged with other oil
Do I need gas and oil mix – Poulan Super 250a Chainsaw Plate
I think Poulan uses a 40:1 ratio to one gallon of gas, however I have always used 50:1 the same as my sthl saws with no issue. I would rather have more oil mix that to little.
Bar and chain oil leaks when not running
This is normal as the pump creates a pressure vacuum to pull the oil through it to the bar. If you are concerned about this, open and then close the oiler cap. This will relieve the pressure much like in a caulking gun or gen. purpose pump sprayer. Hope this helped.
The oil tank is full on my ryobi rcs 1835 chainsaw, but the oil isn’t coming through to the chain.
Your oil pump is out you will have to replace it
My bar isnt lubricating with oil and oil is coming out of the bottom of the saw. whats the problem?
Dry chainbar indicates the oil pipe from the pump/reservoir is blocked. Just needs a clean out. – Oil leaking from bottom after use indicates reservoir is continuing to syphon oil from pipe joints because oil pump is creating pressure in the tank because of blocked pipe. Simple cure is to crack open the oil cap each time you stop using the saw. This will release the tank pressure and stop the syphon effect.
What oil do we put into the poulan 3.0 peak hp
I assume you are referring to the Bar/Chain oil?
