Stihl 250c strange compression
« on: July 20, 2018, 01:27:20 PM »
I have a Stihl 250 c thatís is puzzleing me. I can pull the recoil and sometimes it will turn over the engine and start the saw. Other times when I pull the recoil there is little to no effort.. a few seconds after you hear the engine turn a little and cough at you. That issue can occur 2-3 more times without me pulling the recoil again. Any ideas on what may be happening? When the saw runs thereís no bogging or lack of power at all. This usually occurs on a cold start.
