There is water leaking from Karcher 510, please advice it is coming from where and how to fit it

If theres also a lack of power that would suggest a hairline crack in the pump housing. If power is ok it might be the seals inside the pump head.

1998 Dodge Neon still overheats after replacing head gasket & removing thermostat,fans are working water pump seems to be working. i let idle with radiator cap off & it kept bubbling out water in...

What was the torque? recheck the torque, 25 ft then 50ft.then 1/4 turn.And did you send the cylinder head out to a machine shop, for straightening and machining,You have a aluminum cylinder head they warp.

Low presure

sometimes the water pressure from the house is insufficient, when it happened to me it would run weird. The water would come out in spurts because little water would come out of the water hose. You could try and lower the pressure on the machine to compensate for the lack of pressure going in, that's all I can think of.

It's a Karcher presure washer K2.54, one and a half years old. Was working fine last time but when turned on now there is very little pressure through the hose and the water seems to be filling up inside...

this sounds like the seals may have been damaged inside the pump or that the water inlet/outlet could be damaged. If you take off the front cover (use a star bit screw driver) then run the pressure washer you will be able to see were it is leaking from and then you can get the right part to replace it.

Karcher K2.26M water leak

I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold housing. There is a small crack in the seam. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement K2.26* Part # 97501760 is $61.03, about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :( If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

97 sable new radiator,new thermostat,new water pump, and temp sensor, still run hot and hard to bleed. what ever happen to the simple in and out cooling systems? lol

Sounds like a typicul sable cracked cylinder head. usually the head nearest the firewall. If youdo a head gasket job, be sure to have the heads presure tested and milled. Try starting the car with the radiator cap off and full. Water will spurt out right away if the head is cracked

I have a K3.91M karcher waterblaster that has had little use and it pulsates at idle what is the solution?

A couple of other options spring to mind. It may be an air-lock, try disconnecting the high pressure hose and letting the water flow under its own pressure for 5 mins or so. It may also be a crack in the cyliner head...£16 from Espares..takes about an hour to strip and refit. you will need allen keys (to remove the cylinder head) and torx type screwdrivers for the casing.
