My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.

I have a model PW 2200 gas pressure washer. It suddenly lost it's high pressure the other day after working fine for @10 minutes. It's getting plenty of water, but the engine doesn't seem to rev up to give it the high pressure. The operating instructions say to check the oil in the engine, and the PUMP before starting, but I haven't found any place to check for an oil level in the pump????Any ideas, I'm very confused.

I temporarily misplaced (not lost for good) the owners manual for my honda pressure washer : engine and pump. I do not want to run my machine again until I verify the pump oil content/level. On the pump itself, at the top, there is a black, unscrewable oil cap, with blue-ish oil in it, BUT NO DIP STICK! How do I check the level? What kind of oil, specs etc? Thanks!

Hi, I have a Karcher K3 pressure washer. 18 months old, used maybe 6 hours total. For the past 3 hours of use the compressor/pump seems to cycle audibly but pressure at outlet hose seems constant, hence I did'nt worry. Now it does not start with switch on.

I have a Husky gasoline pressure washer. The honda motor starts but stalls because the pressure by-pass (not the right term) doesn't seem to open and builds up pressure. I haven't tried to remove any parts yet. I think grit has got in but don't know for sure. The pump looks pretty simple and the part I want to remove for cleaning looks like a plastic hexagon nob. Will this access the by-pass or is it something else.

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed. When I activate the pressure gun, it seems to generate adequate pressure, however, when the trigger is released, the engine continues to run at the same rpm instead of the normal variable rpm that most engines operate at during idling periods.
