Having problems with your Honda 8 HP Engine ?

My honda gx110 water pump has been sitting outside for a year and now wont start.. I've bled it, changed the oil and refuelled, still no success! (plug seems ok) any suggestions? cheers


Answers :

There is a very good possibility that corrosion has locked up the float. I would try removing the cover/bowl and make sure the float isn't stuck. With all of the other things you've done this is my best guess.

Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil. Believe, I put too much oil so, I drained some and added gas. At first, there was no resistant in the pull so waited an hour and tried again. This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over. It's been a couple of days...changed the spark plug although, hardware guy said nothing was wrong with it..still


... Briggs Stratton 020273 Elite Series Portable Gas Pressure Washer

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

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
