Having problems with your Honda Horizontal Engine 8 HP OHV 2:1 Reduction 2-23/64 x 22mm GX240-RA2 ?

Gas in crankcase and oil

\015 It looks like it might be coming in through the OHV breather tube\015

Answers :

The best solution I have found for this is to turn the gas shut off valve off when not in use. I have many of these Honda motors and on all of them if you don't close that valve after use, the crank case will fill with gas.

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. I went ahead and put everything together, pull the cord and wanted to start. While trying to start it after I sprayed starting fluid in the air cleaner I noticed that gas was coming back from the crankcase breather hose into the air filter choking

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.

You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I ran my pressure washer today in an effort to run some "stabilized" gas through it for the winter. For some reason the pump began to push oil out the top relief hole. If thats not clear, it's a feature that looks like a priming pump but is rigid. By the way, the oil appeared a bit nourish gray. Not sure if that means anything. Any ideas?

It looks as if moisture/water has contaminated the oil. Check the level of oil from the glass window. It must be high. Drain out the oil & check if water is present, if so then replace the entire oil. ... Dewalt DPD3100 Gas Pressure Washer

I have an almost brand new husky pressure washer (one of the big ones). It has been a life saver so far. just the other day it shut its self off. its gas powered so of course i checked the gas and oil. then tried to start it back up. but when I try to pull the pull string it wont come out more than about 3 inches. i payed 400$ cash for it to use on the trucks. does anybody know how to fix that? thanks


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. When I pull the cord to start I don't even get a putter. Anything else I can try or do I need to take it to a service place.

Will it run if you pour a small amount of gas in the carb? If so, it's a fuel supply problem. Most likely a stuck closed float needle. ... Honda Maxus Pressure Washer MX5222
