SOURCE: landa pressure washer LT 4035-4000 psi. Why is it losing pressure and continually pulsating?

If the pump is pulsating rapidly most likely valves are leaking or debris under valve keeping one or more from closing. If the pump pulsates slowly, comes up to pressure then low pressure then repeats, problem is pressure regulator /bypass. Or you could have a combination of both. Try lowering the pressure to lowest setting to see if slow pulsation stops. As parts age within pump and debris hinder operation you can no longer operate at full pressure. To make the pump last, use highest pressure as needed and everyday work using only 60 to 75 percent of capacity.

My K5.55 has pressure loss and judders while running. Vibrations are transmitted to the discharge hose. I need to adjust the wand constantly to get enough pressure.

Change oil, spark plug and clean/replace air filter. Do u have a choke adjustment, most have automatic govenors nowadays. Clean water hose intake screen.

My lights on my Neptune dryer pulsate and the timer doesnt work properly.

This is a heavy one but I've stated before that all appliances and electronics need a functioning ground----you can't use a 3prong adapter to 2prong----there's no ground for the machine to function by and also an ungrounded machine is dangerous----this may not be your problem but it's the easiest to fix, the cheapest and the safest

I have fuel but there is no power to the injectors to make them pulsate

It's a fused circuit, so check the fuse, probably under hood, labeled injector. A shorted injector can shut down the injector drive circuit, so pull off all injector connectors, make sure fuse is good, then check for power to the injectors. Injector circuit should nave hot wire anytime key is on. Has constant voltage to injectors. When the computer internally grounds the injector ground wire, the injector will pulse.

Squeaking sound coming from engine area. Not sure if pulley or belt or something else.

Very possible it is a belt or pulley.
You could use a section of heater hose and a funnel to listen for the source, or take the belt off and run the engine without it to see if it continues.

Briggs & Stratton 11 horse snowblower engine pulsating

this i what my pressure washer does... I would say its just getting aged and you shouldnt have to worry about it, but if you want to try to get it to stop then give it a good tune up. spark plug air filter and clean the carb out with a small wire or tourch tip cleaner to make sure all the passages are clean and clear... or just let it keep doing it like I do.

Some tune up questions and trouble shooting a running issue.

Actually.....the 5.0 in the 92 Olds Custom Cruiser is a 307 CI 5.0 L engine believe it or not....The Caprice had a 305 CI 5.0 L engine. There is very little difference, but I have one as well and I found that out through the local dealer. The pulsation you feel when driving sounds like a transmission problem to me, but I think it could be from the timing chain issue. I do not know the timing setting for the car, but maybe this will help you to find it. I would try to make sure which motor you actually have first, the 305 or the 307, and then ask the mechanic at the local dealer what the setting should be.
