SOURCE: pump oil leak where pump connects to engine

With that few hours, you need to return it as the seal shouldn't leak. Probably was improper pump assembly, so you should take it back, because it will only get worse and fail. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Foaming in pump oil window

I dont know which comet pump you have, but it is just easier to get a new pump from one of the pressure washer companies on the internet and they sell them on ebay. You can also probably get a better pump that will fit your engine as well. Also, have you tried just changing the oil and not fill it too full? On my 5000 lb washer, if i fill the oil too high when I change the oil, it will foam some. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: 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

Is it leaking oil?
The pump comes pre filled from the factory and is sealed so no oil should not need to be added.

How often do you fill pump wit oil?


Pump oil doesn\'t need to filled often. Only when you notice the oil looking creamy or not clear! This applies only to horizontal shaft pumps! If you have a vertical shaft, the pump is non-serviceable. If the pump is leaking oil, then only add as needed! The oil level on any pump is half way up the sight glass if any is available. If no sight glass is available then only half way up! NEVER fill the pump completely up! This can cause oil seals to fail as well as other damage to the pump! Best of luck!

Why is oil coming out the side of my pump, I just changed the oil and it started doing this? I own a Porter Cable 4,000 PSI.


You didn't state your model number so I don't know exactly which type pump you have. With that; there is no 'oil pressure' in power washer pumps. The internal parts work in an oil bath/splash environment and the pump body is vented, usually at the oil fill cap. Thicker oils and stop leak will only mask the problem and make the pump work harder. Where the oil is coming out is key to the problem. Clean the pump well with something like dish soap to remove all excess oil to find exactly where it's leaking. If it's leaking at a part joint, like the pump body to the valve body or at a bolt, you may have a bad gasket or cracked part. If it's coming out the oil cap a likely cause is there is too much oil in the pump. When oil gets hot it expands and will find a way out. If you have an oil site glass, make sure the site glass is only half full of oil. If it has a dipstick, make sure you have the right dipstick and only fill it to the full mark. Most pressure pumps only need to be half full but that is dependent on your particular pump. If you have it consult your owner's manual. If you don't have the manual you can go to http://servicenet.dewalt.com, search for your model number and see if the manual is still available.

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.

Pump leaks not to much pressure and when i you the prime pump


Hello rr61
If the pump is leaking you will not get pressure. You need to get the leak fixed. Where is it leaking from?
Leaning back to star and run sounds like the motor oil is low. You are "tricking " the low oil sensor. I would change the oil and be sure it has the correct amount.

Karcher pressure washer leaking oil


Usually electric pressure washers only have oil on the pump, so its very likely that you will find the problem there. I'd say check all the pump seals and if that doesnt solve the problem, you can check to see if all bolts are tight when you close the pump back.
If by any chance you are looking for a new machine and/or parts for your machine, log in to www.roncoshop.com where you will be able to find pretty much anything for your preassure washer.
