It sounds like you are referring to the oil in the swash plate housing. You can use a multi grade motor oil such as 20w50 or 10w40. Fill to about half way over the swash plate. If the old oil has gone amilky colour, please replace the oil seals first.

What type of fuel do i need to use for my p/w? Does it require oil/gas mixture? Thx.

Your Honda would be a four stroke engine, so your fuel would be straight gas, you will notice on the base of the engine there is a location to put oil, a 4 stroke engine is lubricated by the oil in the base of the crankcase. On a two-stroke engine.oil fuel mixture lubricates the crank so it has no provision to add oil to the engine.

I can use my Karcher K3 jet wash as long as i hold trigger down

Most pressure washers have ball lock type fittings on the hose connections. What happens is the little steel balls get a bit of corrosion and do not lock the male fitting properly with the female coupling. Load up the fitting with some Oil or WD 40. Then connect and disconnect the fitting several times to losen up the balls and springs. Should the spring in the coupling break you will get the exact symptom your describing.

If the OIL / WD 40 does not do the trick then you may have to change out the quick disconnect coupling.

Why is my karcher jet wash smoking excessively?

could be bad piston rings, or if its a 2 stroke engine (probably not) then you could have too much oil in the oil/gas mixture. maybe even too much oil in the crankcase.
