If your chainsaw still starts and then stops working, check the air filter. Clean or replace the air filter if it is dirty or damaged. Another reason that your chainsaw starts and then stops working could be that the spark arrestor is dirty or clogged. If this is the case, clean it with a wire brush.

Dont know what type off oil to put in the bar and chain tank on the chainsaw
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,

Your chain is too loose. If you’re using an old chain, you might need to have a link taken out of it. You can find replacement chains for your saw at Hyperparts.com. Use the application lookup link at the top of the page with your model # to make sure you order the right chain.

<!– from fixya rte –>How full should I fill the chain oiler – McCulloch 16 Inch Gas Chain Saw MCC1635AK
Fill it all the way. I fill mine every time I put fuel in the saw to keep from running out and burning up the chain.
I was using the saw as a chain saw last weekend to cut up an old tree stump when the chain came off. I don’t know how to access it to put it back on and don’t have a user manual. The saw belonged to my late father and I don’t know if he even kept the manual.
You will have to remove the cover on the side the chain bar goes into. There should be one or two nuts holding the cover on the side. The is also a chain tension adjuster you may have to loosen to put it back on. Make note of the direction of the teeth on the chain. It is an directional chain. The tension adjuster is usually a flat head screw on the front side right beside the chain bar.Unless it is a really old saw, manuals are available from most manufacturers for free download. See if you can locate a brand name and model number.
Where can I buy a fuel priming bulb, vinyl/soft plastic?
You can go to the carburetor manufacturer’s website and look for parts. You will need the numbers of the carburetor in order to get the correct one. Alternately, you can go to a mower shop near you and they should be able to get you one or point you to a place that will have the part you are looking for.
