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.

Assembly I recently purchased a pressure washer from Home Depot. It is rated at 3100 psi. It is a comet pump with a honda gas engine. The assembly instructions recommended that I remove the plug on the top of the pump and replace it with a vented plug that was provided. However, none of the other enclosed manuls talk about the vented plug. Am I reading the assembly insturctions correctly. Should there be a vented plug ?

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.
