No, you might dissolve your seals and not have the proper lubricating properties. Power steering fluid is flowing against pressure and the 30 wt is simply lubricating at no pressure.

SOURCE: Ryobi 3000 psi pressure washer detergent injector

Most detergent injectors work by the venturi system. That is that the detergent is drawn into the stream by the forward flow of the water thru a very narrow port after the water passes thru the pump. This system works best when the pressure at the tip of the wand is low. Trying using a very large tip to draw in and apply the detergent, then remove injector and rinse with high pressure. Not good for the pump but to apply soap reliably under high pressure the soap needs to be injected through the intake of the pump. enjoy

SOURCE: Karcher pressure washer won't start

Dear ralph_birtwi,
Most pressure washers when their gun is released, the machine stops automaticaly. This is done ny means of a control valve. When the gun is closed...pressure is built and the control valve moves and switches a micro switch off. In your case the micro switch is still closed in off position. Now this happens if a machine is left and stored with pressure in it., This control valve could get jammed and leaving the micro switch in off position. It could also stay in off position by sticking, due to incorrect chemical.
So the control valve or even called spill valve, must be renewed.
Sometimes a little lubrication with the right type of silicon grease will get the control valve working again. This job is sometimes delicate and better done by a qualified technician.
Regards,
fulltech.

The systems are simple but if they aunt stored correctly(allowed to freeze) or the air isn't purged out of it. It can result in damage to the machine.If water is dripping out of the pump it is damaged. if not then it could be air (purge system), or a damaged or stuck check valve.

What kind of pump oil for simpson gcv190


I need to know the model of the pump you have. You are giving us the model of the engine which is a Honda GCV190. Can you tell me the model on the pump itself. It is more than likely an AR pump but I need to know . It is more than likely going to take 30 weight non detergent but some pumps take specific oil. You can also call Barens at Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... They can hook you up with the correct oil for your pump. Good luckOADXAV

MINI ONE POWER STEERING COMES AND GOES AFTER PUMP REPLACED


2 posible solutions to your problemone is that the rack and pinion unit has a restriction inside. if you remove the return line to the power steering pump and hold over a pan start engine and the pump will push old fluid into the pan instead of recirculating back into the system. you must keep power steering pump full of fluid because the return fluid is being pumped out of the system.also some models have an electric sensor switch on the pressure line that adjusts pressure by how fast the car is going.faster the car travels less power steering pressure

What type of oil is used to fill the a FAIP PV93501 pump and what quanity.


I don't know about that brand of power washer.
We used several types of power washers over the years, and they each called for 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil in the pump. SAE 20 or SAE 30

The pump oil comes about half way up inside the pump.

The engine oil is 10W30

Do not turn a power washer on its side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

How many ounces or quarts of oil do you put in the engine and what kind when changing the oil?


Power washer needs oil 2 places.

d72f00f.jpg

The pump head has a plastic window on side of pump. Oil should fill to middle of that window. Pump should have 20 or 30 weight NON detergent oil. SAE20 SAE 30 I believe. Auto parts store will know which is NON detergent.

The engine oil is ordinary 10W30. We used to change oil after each painting season by tilting engine to the side. Do not turn engine on it's side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

I don't remember exactly how many quarts we put back. Maybe 2? Fill up reservoir until oil is about half-way up dip stick.

What type of oil goes in a comet axd 3020 pressure washer pump?


You should use what the pump manufacturer recommends. Typically a 30wt non-detergent (non foaming) oil. Do not over fill. If there is a sight glass half way is normal. Or if it has a dip stick follow the mark there.
