So I have an 025 that I use mostly for cutting larger splits down, and occassional scrounge or cutting large piece down for woodworking projects. I used it last probably in December for a little bit. A few things that I will say are bad on my part. I don't use it enough, I leave old gas in it on occassion and I should have used fresher fuel. The last time I used it, it started ok. If I shut it down for a few minutes, it would not re-start warm/hot. It flooded and I had to pull the plug and air it out for a while, but it would restart cold. So it was getting balky last time I used it. Now, if it sits for a while, I can get some brief starting, but not running. I do have a spark. Today, I picked up fresh gas(89 octane), used the Stihl oil for the mix and I drained all the old gas. I did the normal cold start and got a quick catch on closed choke but it would not run. A few more pulls and nothing. I flipped up to open the choke up one notch, still nothing. I pulled the plug and it was soaked. I dried it out and let it sit for a while. I put it all together and same thing, slight catch on choke and nothing. I have oil/gas coming out of the muffler now. Any recommendations on what to do? Should I clean the muffler? One of my questions would be if the plug is saturated and it dries off, is there still oil residual that affects the plugs performance? Also does the oil saturate the muffler and cause starting issues until it burns out. Go easy on me all you heavy hitters. I have no problem tearing stuff apart if needed. I will say shame on me for neglecting the old girl. I can go weeks, if not a month or two between uses. Maybe I'll take out the plug and let it all air out tonight. I put the same gas in my ice auger for a test, and it fires like a champ. Something is not right on the saw. If I can get her to run, I'm sure it'll burn out any junk gas and oil in it. I hope. Thanks all.
