Finding repair locations for Briggs & Stratton Pressure washers
Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Gasolinr and oil were added to the machine by an alledged knowledgable individual. As soon as it was started, black smoke was emited from the engine area. Possible wrong oil used. I am not able to initiate repairs myself so am looking for a reputable repair shop that knows this type of machine.

Empty the gas tank and, if you dare to try, the carb bowl too. If you don't dare don't worry about it. Refill with fresh gas, start it up and let it run. If it doesn;t run too good trying cleaning or changing the plug.

this is usually due to an oil overfill situation. You most likely added the full quart of oil into the crankcase on setting it up without checking the actual oil level periodically as you fill it. Recheck and drain out the excess as needed.
check the brand of engine... If it DOES NOT say Briggs & Stratton, Kohler, Kawasaki then you are going to have a hard time finding parts... Supply us with the brand name/model and serial numbers and your location. only then can we send you off into the right direction
The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.
This Power washer has a 3.75 hp Briggs and Stratton Engine. It does not have a choke but does have a primer bulb. You must depress the primer bulb at least 3 times to start the engine. The primer bulb is on the side of the carb. It can be black or red. If your still unable to locate the primer bulb please provide your ENGINE model number and I will provide you a link to a diagram for the location of the primer bulb.
Remember when your searching for something you can't find the internet is always your best bet. You should also use a good search engine; www.bing.com is one of the best search engines I have ever used. I searched some stores that have the oil your looking for, one online store is www.amazon.com and if you have one near you and they also carry it at Sears. The grade of the oil is definitely weird, 75W90. Also if you would like to look for other stores that carry it go to Bing and type "Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Oil" into the search bar.
