My Stihl chainsaw seems to be leaking bar oil while in the case. . I don't know anything about chainsaws so I figured someone here could point me in the right direction. Any help would be appreciated.

Chainsaws with automatic oilers, will build up pressure in oil reservoir. Drain the reserve before storing for long periods. Doesn’t hurt to drain gas too. Ware your safety gear during operation be safe

I've never had a leak with mine, so far. Can you tell where it's leaking? From the fill hole or down at the saw??
