Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washers ?

Rebuilt honda GC160 5hp engine for a power washer and only got the engine to start once. Just took apart and saw that the cylinder and piston was all scored up again.

\015 Had to rebuild my honda GC160 5hp engine which I did because the part on the rod that splatters the oil broke off and the area around the bolts split apart. So I replaced the rod and the rings and honed the cylinder. I did not replace the piston nor did I not lap the valves. I only got it to start once and then it never started again. So I took it apart to lap the valves and found out that the piston had scored the cylinder again and the first to rings are stuck in place but the large ring expanded out like it should. Why did this happen? I made sure to oil everything really good. I even soaked the rings prior to installing them. I was hoping just to lap the valve and my problem with starting the engine would be over. Now I have to hone the cylinder again. Please help asap...Rick\015

Hi there, I have a Karcher 2650 pressure washer that only pulses, does not reach high pressure consistently. Engine is running fine, filter has been cleared out, water pressure is OK. I even took out the cylinder under the black cap & checked it for deposits and greased it, still no go.


This can be a problem with the pump unit. Actually the collector to be more precise. Also, the pump itself. Either may develop a hairline crack and allow pressure to seep out, and tells the pressure switch that it has lost pressure... so it comes bac ... Karcher Pressure Washers

Model 01902 2350 psi . engine runs fine , sprays out nozzle but lower pressure and water sprays out plastic elbow on relief valve , that is supose to **** in soap if used , cant hold finger over spray from elbow , high pressure , took apart relief valve and plastic valves all orings are ok , brass pump seals look ok , all back together , still blows out elbow . ?? plastic spools were out by somebody else , not sure if they are in right , cant find picture to compare .


It sounds as if the non return valve in the elbow is the wrong way around .The o-ring normally goes in first then the ball then the spring. Try it and good luck. ... Pressure Washers

Hard starting 6hp Briggs and Stratton power washer engine. I poured a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder; reinserted the spark plug and with one pull in ran fine. This is a choke start engine and it may take 12 to 15 pulls to start on a cold engine. The unit is clean. The air cleaner is new. The spark plug is new. The unit is 2 years old with very little use.

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

I have a 2500 craftsman power washer with a Briggs and Stratton engine. I used it about a month ago and it worked fine. Took it out yesterday and I could not pull the rope to get it started.

It sounds like the pump is seized. Make sure any pressure has been released by pulling the trigger on the gun. Sometimes this will allow you pull the cord. If the pump is seized, a new pump would be in order. ... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers
