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

1 Answer

I can not find how much oil to use in the Generac Pressure washer 2700.

There is no sightglass, dipstick, any measurements on the outside or anything in the manual to indicate how much oil to put in.

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.

Hi mick,depending on what make and model your bike is,they usually have a dipstick or an oil sightglass ,either way have the bike uptight on level ground with the tyres on the ground .if its. sightglass just look into it and see if the oil is visible and if so ajust the level by adding or draining some oil.the ssightglass is usually below the oil filler cap.if its. dipstick while upright undo the dipstick and clean it then put it back in its hole but Dont screw it in just lift it back out and again adjust the level as needed ther is usually a high and low mark on the dipstick shaft.

Pressure washer surges


This could be your unloader valve taking in account the engine isn't surging. Does the engine run smooth? Do you have at least 50 psi water pressure feeding the pump? Inlet screen clogged? ALL tips act same way or no change?

Pump oil change, how much oil


There should be a drain plug (bolt) at the bottom of the pump to drain the oil. Undo bolt and drain the oil. Replace bolt and fill pump with new oil. Look for a sightglass on the side of the pump. Fill so the oil level is in the centre of sightglass.

What type of gas does it take


Is this a big power washer as shown in the photograph?
Is there a separate place to put oil for engine and pump?
13b0d3a.jpg

If your engine has a place to put oil, then the engine takes ordinary gasoline
If you have a small engine like a weed-eater or chain-saw, and there is not a separate reservoir for oil, then you mix 2-cycle engine oil with the gas in a 40:1 ratio

Pressure washer oil:
Pump fills about half-way up with SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil
Engine fills half way up dipstick with 10-W-30 motor oil

2002 wr400 yamaha motorbike 1 oil change.a how many litres b oil type to use c best way to check oil when changed


You have either a dipstick or sightglass correct? The oil goes in the dipstick hole . After oil and filter change pour in 1 qt of oil and check your level w/dipstick or sightglass. Slowly top up your oil checking every 1/4 qt you pour in. Bike should be held level on level ground...buy 3 qts of synthetic oil when ur at the store....Good Luck to you friend....Tim
p.s. if you don't have an owners manual, get one from your dealer,they are an invaluable tool.
