Are you actually using bar and chain oil, or did you take advice from your
neighbor or somebody on line and put motor oil in it instead?
If you're using the correct oil, then, no, that's not normal. It might be
adjustable -- see your owner's manual.

I was surprised today. Neighbor asked me to help him set up and run
his new chainsaw - a Woodshark. Showed him the ins and outs of
installing the chain, how to start, etc. etc. then we found it would
die everytime you let off the trigger. Fooled with that, couldn't get
it to idle, then noticed the chain brake was broken on one side.
"Take it back, get your money, then buy a real saw" Put it in the
box, grabbed my saw and did the little bit of work he had to do.
Looked in box and there was a pool of oil in it already.
So, even a new saw can leak ... of course I don't classify a Poulan
POS as being a saw.
