    Could this engine be vapor locking after running a while? If so how do I correct it?. If it was the oil shut off it wouldn't start to begin with right? Oil level is full

Try checking the fuel filter and or line. Sometimes dirt is drawn in to plug the line, then settles back down later.

I have a Honda GX 160 5.5 Power washer Model Number: CM2403. What kind of oil should i be using in the engine?


If it has a Briggs engine then use SAE 30 oil. If you run synthetic (which I highly recommend), then SAE 30 or muti-viscosity oil like 10W-30 can be used, but if using conventional oil, only SAE30.

I have a Honda GX 390 with 13 hp power washer. Overheating.


Make sure the engine is not full of paint or dust debris in it's cooling system. If the fuel mixture setting is very lean, it can cause overheating. Make sure the fuel tank vent is open to prevent fuel starvation. Does the engine seem to be running at full operational speed? If not, it will be short on developed horsepower. Make sure the water source is not partially shut off. Hope some of this helps!

Hard starting after sitting


adjust your idle screw in carburetor clockwise one or two full turns. When Honda's are cold, they need higher idle to start properly.

MY GX 240 starts fine runs great any where from 30


Can your gas tank breathe? Is your fuel filter clogged? Might there be something in the tank that would obstruct the flow of fuel?

Check the tank by loosening the top to allow air to enter.

Let me know what happens

Honda gx 390 only starts when it feels like it


Sometimes you have to lower the air pressure in the tank to allow it to run. The back pressure from the compressed air in the compressor head overcomes the pressure created in the engine at the slow RPMs you are able to pull while attempting to crank it.

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
