SOURCE: how to change oil in a pressure washer

From the manual CleanShot 2050 Briggs and Stratton

Change Pump Oil
1. Drain engine oil and fuel from pressure washer
2. Use an 8 mm allen wrench to remove black pump oil cap between high pressure outlet and garden hose inlet.
3. Tiltl pressure washer to drain oil into an approved container until it drips slowly from pump.
4.Tilt pressure washer in opposite direction and empty premeasured pump oil bottle into same opening (a small funnel may be helpful) [THIS IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS-NOT CLEARLY WRITTEN IN MY OPINION OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FOR WHOM ENGLISH IS A SECOND LANGUAGE]
5. Install black pump oil cap and tighten firmly.
6. Set pressure washer in upright position. Add fuel and engine oil.

From the engine manual use synthetic 5w-30, 10w-30 from -20 degrees F to temperature of 100 degrees F.
Change oil after 5 hours of operation initially. Before tipping to drain oil, remove fuel from fuel tank by running until tank is empty. Remove oil cap and dipstick and tip engine. Keep spark plug side up. Or remove drain plug from the bottom of pressure washer with a ratchet and square extension and drain oil from bottom. (fuel does not have to be removed)

Check for spark first If it has spark, remove the breather and put a few drops of gas in the carburetor.

SOURCE: Honda Pressure Washer won't start

Blue smoke is def oil burning so I would guess that is the ain cause of the non running. It is possible that oil has got into the carb and jet . Turn fuel off and unscrew the slightly off set 10mm bolt on the bottom of the carb bowl to drain the fuel. If oil came out with the fuel then you should undo the other 10mm bolt and remove the bowl. Spray some carb cleaner around the floet and jet and also up the post that the bowl was fixed to as the jet is up there. Also, remove spark plug and pull over a few time to get rid of anything in the cylinder. Refit all back together and try again (don't forget to turn fuel back on).If it tarts it may run smokey for a few minutes while any oil residue burns off.

Where is the oil drain plug located on a Homelite 2700 psi 2.3 GPM Honda Gas Pressure Washer?

There is drain plug, surprisingly. You basically have to tip the washer over to the side opposite of the exhaust. I like to take the wheel off first. It is much easier this way. You don't want oil to get in the exhaust Or you could get something like a turkey baster and pull it out. There isnt much oil in there so it isn't that difficult.
Let me know if you need more assistance.

Won't Stay On

If it's brand new, the first thing I'd check is the oil level in the Honda motor. Most pressure washers are tested then the oil is drained out for shipment. Honda motors have an oil sensor in them that will shut the motor off if the oil level is low. When the motor is off, all the oil is in the bottom of the crankcase and the sensor 'thinks' all's OK. When you start it up and the oil is getting splashed around it will get low enough for the sensor to shut the motor down. Also make sure the gas is turned on at the carburator.

We just purchased a Homelite Pressure Washer. We put new gas and oil into it, and it will run for about 2 minutes and then shut off. Now we can not even get it to run. We really don't want the hassle of...

A couple of things to check.. some rather obvious.

Assuming you have followed all the directions.. removed the pump vent plug before first use.. have a hose attached.. pressed the trigger on the wand to make sure you have water flowing etc.

Check to make sure the fuel valve is turned to ON.. fully..
If you Over filled the gas tank.. remove some of the petrol.. it should not be filled to the top...

Hopefully you put the correct amount and right type of oil into the crankcase.. again do not overfill the crankcase..

The fuel on most Homelite pressure washers is regular unleaded gasoline. NO E85 fuel should be used. Certainly no premixed gasoline for two cycle engines.

Check Choke position.. to start place in Cold Start or ON.. once started let it run for about 5 or ten seconds.. move it back to RUN..

If you ran it too long with the choke on you probably fouled the spark plug..

Remove it and clean it carefully.. if it is wet.. and all black.. it's fouled.. let it dry out.. clean it up properly (careful to not change the gap) replace and try again.

Lastly if you live in a neighborhood.. there is almost always a fellow nearby that is good with smalle engines.. ask around.. these guys are always happy to fiddle with these motors.

Best of luck to you!
