SOURCE: changing engine oil on a gx390 engine for pressure washer excel

On the very bottom of the motor is a square plug to drain the oil. The machine must be elevated to allow the oil to flow into a drain pan. If you don't see a square plug then look for a small 1/4 inch tube coming from the bottom of the crankcase with a hex cap on the end of it. If you cannot find either of these, then you must turn the pressure washer on its side and drain it through the same plug you fill from.

SOURCE: What gas and oil do I use on the Honda Excell 2600 pressure washr

That engine requires a separate gas and oil. There is an oil sump with oil level needle and cap on the side of the engine. This is where you fill it with special pressure washer pump oil available from any good outdoor store or place where pressure washers are sold. As for gas, Unleaded or Premium unleaded gas will work fine. Try not to use any fuel with ethanol blends however. Here is a list of oils that will give you an idea what to buy for the oil reservoir: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref%255F%3Dnb%255Fss%255Fgw%26field-keywords%3Dpressure%2520washer%2520pump%2520oil%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=onlinetoolrev-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957

SOURCE: Honda excell pressure washer does not have pressure

if the machine is running on suction, ie sucking out of a barrel there may be an air leak on the suction hose or pump. it will pull air easier than pulling water .

put the machine under mains water pressure, hose pipe straight from tap to pump.
check all around the pump and inlet pipes for leaks.
if water leaking this needs rectifiying for it to work on suction.
run the pressure washer while on mains pressure with the hose on, does this make a difference?

if not then probably the unloader is stuck in the pump head. remove unloader , clean and replace it
parts breakdowns are available on the internet for your machine.

possibly valves stuck, or the valve springs have broken, seen this quite few times on these machines. if so replace springs .

These sort of machines do not last very long anyway, about 50 hours use if your lucky.

Piston seals usual begin by overheating from excessive idling. You might add a thermostatic relief valve to help this.

My honda excel 2600 psi pressure washer do not have any pressure when i squeez the trigger


Trash in, worn or damaged inlet and outlet valves are one possibility. Unloader valve stuck open or badly worn would also cause low pressure. Wrong spray nozzle size is another. Is the nozzle the right size for your pump?
Is water leaking from under the pump? That would show worn high pressure seals.

The pump is leaking some gray fluid


Gray fluid is usually indicative of old oil with water mixed into it. First you have to determine if the fluid is coming out of the motor or pressure pump. Then change the oil in that, or both, and then watch the condition of the oil when you use the washer. With new oil, it won't turn gray but will get a milky coloration to it. There shouldn't be any way for water to get into the motor oil short of the engine being sprayed directly with high pressure water. If water is getting into the pump oil you'll have to check the seals inside the pump.

Honda Excell 2600 no pressure and water is leaking from the pump. i believe it's the unloader but can i fix it myself. i'm handy with tools and repairs but do no have the manual.


a manual will not tell you how to replace the unloader if you have the same unloader you will need a pressure gauge to adjust it at 2600 psi and your spike pressure should not exceed 3100psi and the leak at pump you need to check your oil make sure is not milky and if not you will need seals also

Pressure Washer Pump and Engine Stops Suddenly


The pump might be binding against the motor, causing the pump to overheat and temporarilly "seize up" and shut the engine off.
After cooling down for a brief period (5~10 mins) the engine can usually be re-started, but the overheating problem will keep coming back.

This happens when the pump either wasn't seated against the engine properly during it's initial instalation, or the pump housing wasn't machined properly and the PTO shaft is trying to drive the pump at a slight angle = excessive friction = overheating.

Try this:
1) Loosen the bolts that mount the pump to the engine just enough so that the pump can be wiggled slightly.
2) With the engine power switch in the "OFF" position, slowly pull the recoil starter rope so that the engine / pump completes about two revolutions. This helps to align the pump surface with the engine.
3) Lightly snug the pump mounting bolts in a criss-cross pattern, then slowly pull the recoil starter rope again to ensure that the pump isn't binding.
4) Finish tightening the pump mounting bolts in the criss-cross pattern (approx. 21 foot pounds torque).

The entire process should take you roughly about 10 mins from start to finish.

If this doesn't remedy your problem, then try running the engine for 20 mins with the pump COMPLETELY removed so as to isolate the components.

Oil leak under the engine


If it is a vertical shaft engine then it is most likely the crankshaft seal. That requires removing the engine from the frame and removing the pump from the motor to replace the seal. If it is a horizontal shaft engine then it could be either the shaft seal or the side cover gasket. Both require removal of the pump.
