Honda GC 160 Engine, I had the carb replaced about 1 year ago, now its doing the same thing. At first it wouldnt start at all, I cleaned the carb, then it started would speed up and die. I then took the carb off and cleaned the jets, now it starts with the choke in the closed position only, at high speed it sputters and dies, but will I run it at med speed it runs but will die with tiller has a load, also when you put the choke to open it always dies. I dumped all the gas, and checked the fuel

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

Engine will not turn-over. It is a Honda 11 HP, OHV on a Karcher Pressure Washer. It was running fine for about 45 minutes. All of a sudden it stopped. When I tried to start it again, the engine is bound up so that the pull rope will not pull out at all. It has plenty of gas. The crank case is full of oil, not over full.


Pull the spart plug out and see if you can pull it. Sometimes the carb will flood the engine to a point that they get hydrolic lock.If it does free up then I suggest cleaning the carburator before trying to start it again.If it does not free up the y ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there.

Honda Trash Pump Model WT30X Stalling - 8hp engine runs for approx 5 seconds that shuts down, restarts after I hear a relay click ? oil is fine - so I do not believe that it is an oil pressure sensor. Are there any other sensors ? Does water have to be pumping through it??
