Pistent when through engine


... Pressure Washers

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. The engine will always cease running when I push the choke rod all the w

... Pressure Washers

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer

I HAVE A BRAND NEW TROY-BUILT 2600PSI pressure washer. I have used it twice for about 1/2 hour each time. It worked perfectly. I tried to use it today with everything hooked up perfectly.

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

I have a honda GX240K1 on a BCS tiller. The engine seems to defy reason. I have adjusted the governor, set the max speed screw, adjusted the idle speed and have achieved some success but cannot seem to control max RPM's. The engine max's out at over 5K.

I am using a EZ328 instrument to check the engine RPM and it's reading i
