SOURCE: karcher pressure washer leaking oil

all 4 stroke engines have oil, and 2 stroke can have a oil mixer reservoir to mix with engine gas or to lube the chains , gears, pumps.
If yours is 4 stroke as likely then the oil may be leaking at the seals to the main. (bad news)
Pressure wash it (lol) and locate the leak,
to speed up the leak you can pump some compressed air into the engine (be creative)

SOURCE: pressure washer won`t pressure up

Dear rustrick281,
It seems that your pump needs a good service. The sucktion and delivery valves got faulty. The high pressure seals and the low pressure seals must be renewed. The pistons must be checked for corrosion and cracks. Also the pistons or one of the pistons got stuck due to oncorrect lubrication. The swash plate that drives the pistons could have got loose. So the motor turns and the pump stays dead. So a good examination and service must be done to the pump. To renew all the parts I have mentioned, you must buy a PUMP KIT for you model. The pistons are not included in the pump kit....but hopefuly the pistons are still good. Also the oil inside the pump must be renewed.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Hello:
Best to use NON DETERGENT 10W30. Be sure you fill the reservoir only 1/3 to less than 1/2 full.

Where do you add the pump oil and where do you add the engine oil on husqvarna 020490 pressure washer. I see a yellow oil plug on both sides.


Hi Andy.
The yellow oil plugs are for the motor. At the bottom of the crankcase you should also see a screwed drain plug. Remove this, allow the oil to run out, replace and refill with a good quality multigrade engine oil.
The water pump oil may or may not be accessible, depends on the pump manufacturer. If you have a sight glass, you will be able to drain and change the oil. You will also have a filler cap with a breather.
Use a good quality tractor transmission oil or oil supplied by the manufacturer. DO NOT USE ENGINE OIL IN THE PUMP TRANSMISSION. It may aerate and overflow.
In normal use a pressure washer should not use either engine oil or pump oil between servicing. Excessive engine oil consumption indicates a tired motor. Oil consumption by the water pump is a big indicator of overuse.

The pump is leaking some gray fluid


Gray fluid is usually indicative of old oil with water mixed into it. First you have to determine if the fluid is coming out of the motor or pressure pump. Then change the oil in that, or both, and then watch the condition of the oil when you use the washer. With new oil, it won't turn gray but will get a milky coloration to it. There shouldn't be any way for water to get into the motor oil short of the engine being sprayed directly with high pressure water. If water is getting into the pump oil you'll have to check the seals inside the pump.

SEEPS GREY OIL


May be time for re-seal kit. Usually, water leaking into crank case of the pump will mix with the oil /grease and produce gray looking foam. This grey looking substance still has lubricating properties but is a sign that the seals are failing and allowing water to enter the crankcase. The water can enter thur /past the piston seals or thru crack in the chamber. On some high pressure pumps, there is space between the rear is the piston/cylinder area and the oil/crank case. This space will allow water leaking past the cylinder seals to drain out of the pump and not enter the crankcase. In any case, water or oil leaking out of the pump is not normal. If your pump has several hundered hours of use, check on ebay for complete replacement instead or rebuilding (rebuilding a pump is not always successful, for reliable performance, replace the whole pump with same or upgraded model ). Good luck

Grey solutions seep out


Usually indicates that water is leaking past piston seals into oil of crankcase.
Remove oil plug and check for gray foamy oil in crankcase. If oil looks normal (compare to motor oil) oil may be entering pump chamber (not very likely due to high pressure, generally water will be forced into crankcase). If foamy oil is found, time for reseal kit or replace complete pump.

Pump oil seeps out of its fill cap.


More than likely you have water leaking into your oil, making the oil float on the top and out of the vent. Eventually you'll only have water, and no oil. Drain oil and replace. You will probably have to replace the seals between pump and crankcase. Only remove front of pump,(brass part) if you catch it in time the bearings in the rear portion won't go out. Do it now before the water wears the pump out. You can get parts for most pumps at www.pressure-washer-parts.com. Or go to www.cometpumps.com Hope this helps.

I have a Comet 4040 and oil and water mix is bubbling out of the red cap on top of my pressure washer. Can anyone tell me what repair kit I might need to fix this problem?


Hi this could be the oil and pump seals worn. Also make sure that you don,t have the transit plug in or the pump cannot breath. It should have a air vented dipstick.

What is the red cap on the cat pump for? And why is oil or some type of redish colored fluid coming out of it?


The red cap is for adding lubricating oil for the crankcase in the pump. If oil is coming out of it while it is running a seal in the head wore out and water is getting into the crankcase and displacing the oil.

Oil leak at top of pump


The oil in the pump is probably leaking because a seal is blown and water is getting into the piston housing. Take a look inside at the oil. It should be brown and translucent. If it is gray, white or milky, you have a blown oil seal. This reservoir should only be 1/3 full of non-detergent oil to begin with. Hope this helps
