My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. 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.

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat. They said never to use quick connects on the garden hose unless the opening is at least 5/8". Does anyone make such a quick connect? I hate having to screw the garden hose o

Stored for a year. i changed the spark plug and the fuel. i also cleaned the carb. water runs through the pump. but it wont stay running. it wants to start but only runs for a few seconds. i think it might be a fuel flow problem but im not sure.

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

I have two questions and would greatly appreciate some help: - What oil to use in the pressure pump of a Ryobi Pressure Washer RY80030? - How much to put in? The pump model is MTP092150 from FAIP.
