I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank. The PW was never exposed to freezing temps. I cannot get the PW to start. I put new fuel into the tank, the oil is good, I drained the carburetor, and the spark plug works (tested it). I pull the cord and the engine doesn't turn. Fuel value is on, choke is pulled, and the starter switch is turned on. System is practically brand new

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.

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 just purchased a RMV2.5G27D Universal pump. Installation was easy, but I have two questions. 1. No where in the booklet does it say to put oil in it, does it come with oil already inside? There was no oil in the box but the instructions kept refering to 2.2 ounces of oil. 2. It had a red plastic plug opposite the water intake, included was a brass plug that fits into that area, does the plastic plug stay or do I put the brass plug in it?


The red plastic plug comes off, that is the plug that is only used for shipping. You should have got a ventable oil plug to replace that one in the box. The oil you would need is this ... Annovi Reverberi RMV2.5G27D Pressure Washer Pump

I got the pressure washer started - lots of smoke etc after not having used 3 years. I then poured in wrong oil to top it off - my brother's chain saw bar oil. DARN.

Can I try using a cleaner, light weight oil to try to unlock it?
