Hi awningking:

I would take all the hoses, (hot & cold input and drain output) and lay them down on the ground and make sure any water that was in them, comes out. I would then seal up each hose with plastic taped down over the open end, (to make sure no little creatures make there home up the hose.

That ought to do it.

Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating for me if appropriate Thanks

Engine runs but only a steam of water comes out of gun with trigger on. washer is stored in a heated garage in winter.

you need to remove and clean the unloader valve. The way this valve works is when you release the trigger the pressure is diverted around the pump through the inlet side so you don't cause damage to the pump. This valve is usually located next to the discharge pipe on the pump where your pressure hose hooks up to. Remove and clean. Be sure to clean port that you remove the valve from also. Use carburetor cleaner. Lubricate the valve with a light coat of lithium grease. This should cure the problem. If not let me know.

It is winter time in michigan and my 2000 ford expedition is having fuel pump problems. When it is warm like in the garage it will start right up. But if it sits outside in a parking lot or something for a...

When you start the truck if it does not idle fast and then cut down you are not getting a cold start routine. That routine is built-in and it is suppose to enrich the fuelmix and speedup the idle. It kinda works like a choke.

This feature is triggered by a water temperature sensor. The other water sensor operates your temperature gauge. You just need to go to a parts store like Autozone and see a picture of the part and its location. It will probably be better to remove it from a Cold engine because the thermostat will be closed and you should not lose much antifreeze.

Remember to tell them you want the sensor for the computer controls and not the dash gauge.

I hope you find my solution helpful.

Hooked it up with water started engine and no

Your water system is plugged with "gunk"
You will need to slush it out with water and air pressure if you can until it runs clear
