Well I did as some here suggested. Cleaned everything real good, checked the cap for dirt around it, ect. Filled gas and oil, used the saw. Still had a bunch of gas and oil in the saw. Took the saw apart meaning clutch cover, bar and air filter( I usually always blow out the filter when I've cut a bunch). Saw has been sitting now since Saturday. Only have a small oil puddle the size of a quarter. It has also been colder and now I'm thinking the temp changes are causing it to leak. No big deal a couple rags can't fix ! Thanks for everyone insight !

I have 2 Remington 120 volt chain saws. One has a hand pump for oiling the chain and it leaks. The other one has an automatic oiler, and it doesn't leak.

That's odd so many people have that problem? my saws never leak bar oil unless I accidentally over fill the tank, and the oil runs all over, and putting the cap in forces oil out, I wipe the oil up the best I can, these 2 have been sitting in a heated basement for a few weeks now and there are both dry.

Your basement probably stays a pretty constant temperature, it seems like temperature change is what causes them to leak.

Most chainsaw oilers use a pump that will allow oil to seep by. It's not so much a design flaw as the simple fact that you need some clearance for things to function. I have 30 some saws. 2 are leakers. They leak more in real warm weather when the oil is thinner. Just the way it is.

Got to wondering. So I checked my 58 volt Echo since it does not have an engine. Under it I found just a quarter sized oil spot. The rest were as I am used to were normal.

I rarely put or keep a saw in a case. But out of habit they all have a couple of layers of cardboard cut to fit the bottom of the case. When they get oil/gas soaked I just throw them away and replace with new.

I've seen this happen with my MS 390 and a friends Husqvarna Rancher, just odd especially when it happened after I installed a new engine housing, NOS OEM too. Then, I had to dial back the oil on the bar, it was slopping so much when running it, was ridiculous and I always had it on max before, now on half and the bar has plenty of lube. Boy that makes a mess under the sprocket cover, enough to get to the engine cooling fins.
