Did you pull the spark plug out and clean it ? if you did , did you also put the starter cord and turn the motor over without the plug installed to get rid of the 2-cycle oil out of the cylinder ? if not do so.

You can try spraying some carburetor cleaner into the carb. If it starts for a minute, your carburetor need cleaning. When you added new gas did you remove the old gas first? Is the air filter clean?

SOURCE: pressure washer stalls

Pressure washers work under very dirty conditions, no wonder they encounter engine problems. Here are a few pointers from a former pressure pump tech. The unloader is a source of engine overloading however this can easily be checked with a pressure guage attached to the gun with a tee fitting having the guage and the normal tip used for the unit. The pressure should never rise over rated pressure. The pressure should drop considrably when trigger is released. The life of the pump and engine can be increased by setting max pressure to 75% of rating. Most engine problems are from following conditions:
Leaking or misadjusted valves; clogged muffer /spark arrester; weak spark coil that is about to fail completely; kill switch/oil sensor wiring and or sensor mal function; gas cap not venting properly causing vacuum in tank and wet or dirty air filter.
All these problems easy to check, fastest repair is to disconnect oil sensor wire to check oil safety system. Then temp replace coil with known good coil. Loosen muffer bolts to check for clogged muffler. Temp run engine without gas cap to check for vacuum. Finally if everything fails, run the engine with carb cleaner spraying directly into the intake. If the engine continues to run with carb cleaner then the problem is fuel delivey and faulty carb. enjoy

Buy a new plug, drain out all of the old gas and put in new gas, and take a look at the air cleaner. If the air cleaner is dirty replace it. There you now have a good spark, good fuel and good air. The engine should start. If it doesn't get some carberator cleaner spray and some starting fluid spray.

What oil viscosity and how much on my simpson pressure washer msv 3024


Here's a link to your Simpson manual:
http://simpsoncleaning.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/manuals/megashot/MSV3024-I-pwmanual-7107460.pdf
No oil is required for the pump.

10W-30 is normally specified for a Honda GCV160-GCV190 engine. You drain the oil by removing the oil cap/dipstick and then tilting the machine on it's side so that the oil can drain out if the oil fill into a container. (Drain when warm so it flows easily).

The capacity of the engine is ~18.6 oz. Refill amount is ~12.0-13.5 oz. (either engine).

When refilling, add oil and check on dipstick often. To check, press the dipstick into the oil fill, but DO NOT SCREW IT DOWN. Just insert the dipstick in until it contacts the top of the oil fill. The correct reading is between the lower and upper limits marked on the dipstick. (You may have to look carefully to see the marks).

What kind of pump oil


What you have is a generic pump from china more than likely. Its built along the line of a FAIP pump. They arent supposed to have the oil changed in them at all. Most are sealed pumps but may have a plastic plug in it. If you must replace the oil then I would suggest Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... and get this item 4.5 OZ. AR64545 OIL FOR AXIAL PUMPS. It is recommended for pumps built similarly but not for your specific pump. But it should work. Good luck. W

What kind of pump oil for simpson gcv190


I need to know the model of the pump you have. You are giving us the model of the engine which is a Honda GCV190. Can you tell me the model on the pump itself. It is more than likely an AR pump but I need to know . It is more than likely going to take 30 weight non detergent but some pumps take specific oil. You can also call Barens at Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... They can hook you up with the correct oil for your pump. Good luckOADXAV

If it begins to catch then you definitely have ignition. Try replacing the plug with same type. If same result, the main jet in carburetor is clogged or the needle valve is stuck and not allowing fuel to enter into motor.

Accidently put 2 cycle gas into Karcher G2600VH, Drained gas,Took spark plug out and cleaned. It is running fine now is there anything I should do in addition


Placing 2 cycle gas into a 4 cycle engine does not cause problems (but will blow white smoke and, in time, dirty the plug). I would have probably just ran it through.

I'm assuming this is a 4 cycle engine. If yes check the level of the oil in the crankcase - DON'T over fill, drain some out if over filled. If 2 cycle engine your oil mix is to rich. drain gas from tank and mix a fresh match of fuel with the proper amount of oil.

Do I need to add oil to the gas for a Troy-Bilt 2500 power washer


This engine is 4-cycle. It does not require oil in the gas. Is the crankcase full of oil? Do you know how to check it?
