The bar oil leaks after use
Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
The best way to store the unit is with the tank empty. However, if you must store with oil, allow the saw to cool, open the oil tank cap, then re-install the cap. This will “burp” the tank. Heat can force the oil out through the pump if this process is not done.

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.
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.
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.
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.
: The Core Culprit in Most Engine Oil Leaks
Since the gasket can no longer seal in the oil properly, it drips and spills out underneath your car – depleting engine oil levels slowly over time and leaving you with those shining puddles on the asphalt.
For best results and perfomance use Husqvarna two-stroke engine oil, which is specially formulated for Husqvarna air-cooled two-stroke engines. Husqvarna offers a variety of two-stroke air-cooled engine oils to fit your needs.
For best results use the Husqvarna Two Stroke LS+ Oil with your chainsaw or brushcutter with an engine 55cc or above.
Fork seals leak from normal wear and tear, age, and debris getting into the seals. Imperfections and nicks in the chrome can also make your fork seals leak. However, the majority of the time your fork seals are leaking it`s simply because debris is caught in the seal holding it open and allowing fork oil to sneak by.

Husqvarna rancher, leaks oil when saw is off. where rubber hose meets pump, seems to fit together well but still leaks out. drains full tank of oil. any fixes or better parts.
The hose is leaking. You will have to replace the hose. You do not have to disassemble the saw in half as many seem to think. Just some of the parts that are in the way. You can insert a wire and pull the hose out from the oil tank along with the filter. It goes in and you remove only the parts that are in the way where the hose comes out.
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.
Bar oil leaks out when not in use – Husqvarna , No.455 Rancher, 20" Gas – Powered Chainsaw
There will always be an amount of bar oil leakage when the saw is not in use, this is due to leakage through the tank breather, and oil caught up in areas of the saw which drain when the saw is stood, if there is not enough saw dust to dry the oil up ( this can happen useing long bars, but only cutting small logs ), if the oil leakage is not excessive i would suggest this is normal. The oiling is a constent loss system, so is not sealed as well as a car sump for example.
My Husqvarna tractor is 3 years old and now leaking oil from the engine. Is it under warranty or is there any recalls. Thanks, Al Irelan
My husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain properly. I have tried to clean all the oil ports on the bar and saw but it still is hardly pumping any oil to the chain. What could be the problem? How does the oiling system work?
The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).Hope it helps.

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.
