I worked at a tool rental center while attending college and learned all about a variety of tools. We used hydraulic oil with anti-wear and rust inhibitor additives in our pressure pumps. Check at you local auto parts for this type of oil.

I have a Winner 108 pressure washer. I think it's owned by Karcher. I was dismantling it to get the faulty run capacitor out, and when i pulled the housing off, it leaked out about 50ml of oil. What o


The oil is there to lubricate the pistons as they are pushed by the swash plate. This oil is usually normal multi- grade engine oil. In bigger machines, grade 90 oil is used. If you are not sure, get some multi-grade and 90 oil, and test with your hand. It should be very easy to see the difference. When filling, see that at least the pistons with the springs are getting wet with oil. Important not to overflow the oil. This overflow, might cause pressure and oil will get out of the seals and mix with the water. On the other hand, the seals must be renewed once you opened the oil side. This because water can enter through the seals and mix with the oil.

MG.

I have a Coleman 2200 6hp green tochemsa engine pressure washer and wanted to know what type of oil is used in the water pump? PLEASE LET ME KNOW.


The recommended oil is determined by the pump manufacturer (usually different from the engine), but most of the "consumer grade" pressure washers say you never need to change the pump oil. Maybe they figure something else will break before it needs new pump oil?

The little jugs of pump oil at home improvement stores are usually SAE 30W (non-detergent) crankcase oil. 75W90 gear oil seems like a better choice; I personally use synthetic marine lower unit gear lube in my pressure washer pump. It's a little more expensive, but I think the formulation gives better moisture resistance. Besides, the pump takes a fairly small amount, and I don't change it very often at all.

Bottom line- you almost certainly want non-detergent oil, around 30W crankcase/80W gear (since they use different scales, these are just about the same viscosity). Synthetics seem to be higher quality, and using marine grade lube gives me peace of mind.

The pump oil matrix here is illustrative- note the many substitutions allowed. The specific oil you choose probably doesn't make much difference, especially compared to never changing it.

Sheering bolt between pump and engine


I will assume you are referring to the main bolt that runs through the center of the pump right?
Was your replacement bolt a grade 8? I know the original bolt should have been a grade 8. It requires quite a lot of torque to shear through a grade 8 bolt. I would make sure that all the mounting bolts are secure. Also make sure that any dampeners that are included at the mounting points are in place and in good condition. It may also help to loosen up all the mounting bolts and make sure that as you re-tighten them that nothing is out of line or binding.
Hope this helps.
