Honda GC190 no start. Unit has been sitting for 2 years. Drained old gas, cleaned the carb. No go. New plug gapped to 0.030in. Still nothing. spark seems good.

What oil does my troybuilt pressure wash use, its 4.5 hp unleaded gas 4500 psi? it just stalled while i was using it looked like oil was low, i have no manual and there was no info on unit so i added 10w-30 regular motor oil now engine wont start?

... Honda Black Max 2600 PSI Pressure Washer

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

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

My B&S 2050psi, 2.0 GPM, 3.75HP, doesn't want to start. I prime it as per the directions, good gas, spark plug good. I can flood it with gas and it runs until all the gas is used up then stops. I don't know why it's not able to get any gas from the tank on it's own. Once it starts shouldn't there be a vaccum that draws gas from the tank? Any ideas?

Karcher 2400R I have not used my pressure washer for 6 months. It was left full of gas in the garage. I tried to start it but it would not fire up so I change the gas, oil, and spark plug, took apart the carburator and cleaned it out with carb cleaner.

My gas power washer will not start. I filled the gas, checked the oil, set the choke, made sure it was on, changed the spark plug, checked the air filter, and drained any water.
