Briggs & Stratton engine loses power

\015 I have a Briggs & Stratton power washer that wouldn't run so I replaced with an identical spark plug. Now it runs, but not at full power. Every so often it kicks into full power so I know I am not imagining this, but then it goes back to running at about 60%. I may have tipped the washer over when replacing the spark plug. Would oil leaking into the engine cause that?\015

Hello herb1007
If it is running it would burn any oil off the top of the piston. (that got there when you tipped it). It sounds like you carburetor needs cleaning. There are sprays on the market that sometime help with this.

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.

Campbell Hausfield Pressure washer model 1549. After a few years of storage, I cannot prevent the powerful spray leaking from the connection between the Gun and the Lance.
