Question about Generac Generator 5989 2,700 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer

1 Answer

No sight glass on my Generac Pressure washer nothing to tell me how much oil to use

There is no dipstick, sight glass, no indicatior or anything to tell me how much oil to put in. There is just a plug in the top and no markings on the outside. The owners manual does not address this issue either.

SOURCE: how much oil do you put in the pump for a generac pressure washer model # 01676?

Check and see if there is a sight glass on the side of the pump. If there is, just fill it until the oil shows up about half way in the sight glass.

Pressure washer pump has no sight glass. How much oil should I put in?


If the oil filler is on the side of the pump, that will be the level to fill it to. If the filler is at the top there may be a dipstick on the plug, or else refer to the handbook.

What oil to use in the power washer water pump


Oil used in engine is SAE30, I would suggest adding bit of Nulon or similiar Teflon based before even first run as it will extend life of the engine, This is air cooled Honda and therefore overheat easy.

Oil used in pump is Universal Tractor Transmission Oil.

Except two, all pumps are equiped with sight glass, fill as indicated on sight glass or dipstick.

To extend life of your equipment, change oil in both, engine and pump after 50hrs.

If you live in colder climates, where freezing is possible, do not forget to drain pump and high pressure hose from water to avoid winter damage.

Hope this will help keep your equipment in top notch for years to come:-)
