Automatic oiler has never worked well even when saw was new, chain never gets enough oil. Should I use a lighter grade oil, or what else should I check?
ANSWER : Take the bar off the saw and check that the hole that the oil comes out hasn’t become blocked with saw dust. It sometimes happens also that when you are filling the saw with oil, shavings and saw dust can get into the tank and this can block the pipes connecting the tank to the hole that the oil comes out. Although it isn’t really recommended, I have used waste engine oil regularly for oiling the saw. This works ok as long as there aren’t any lumps in it.

The automatic chain oiler does not get oil to the chain. Yes, it has chain oil. The black tube to the top chamber at the bar, seems to be plugged and I cant get it off to clean it out. Thanks, Steve
ANSWER : I have never seen an automatic chain oiler that worked. Even new ones don’t seem to work. Just pour a little used engine oil on the bar once in awhile like everyone else does.In theory there is a small piston that rubs on an eccentric at the chain sprocket, and that sucks in oil and pushes it through a hole, into the center groove of the bar.But if the piston is dry, it won’t pump.If the holes are clogged with sawdust, it won’t work.Here is a video that may help:http://www.ehow.com/video_4756894_a-chain-saw-bar-oiler.html

To much oil comes out of the chain oiler – Poulan Pro 42CC 2 Cycle Chainsaw, 18"
ANSWER : Look for an oil volume adjustment screw located near the lower chain run, but on the main case rear or maybe underneath the case in the same area. Turn the screw CW to decrease flow. Remove the bar and chain to make sure the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar are not plugged. When everything is back together, run the saw tip near some cardboard at speed for a moment or two. It should throw off a thin line of oil onto the board. Hope this helps!
