SOURCE: karcher pressure washer leaking oil

all 4 stroke engines have oil, and 2 stroke can have a oil mixer reservoir to mix with engine gas or to lube the chains , gears, pumps.
If yours is 4 stroke as likely then the oil may be leaking at the seals to the main. (bad news)
Pressure wash it (lol) and locate the leak,
to speed up the leak you can pump some compressed air into the engine (be creative)

Dear mike husband,
One reasin for this fault could be a damaged lance or turbo lance. Try by replacing with new ones. If the problem is not solved, then the fault is due to a damaged spill valve. The spill valve could easily be damaged by using not suitable chemical or detergents. After using chemical detergents, one must always rinse the machine by passing pure water. The spill valve could also be damaged by leaving the machine for a long time with pressure in the system. One must never store such machines with pressure still inside. Always press the gun before storing.
Well the solution is to change the spill valve with a new one. In some cases even faulty suction valves can give this problem. But in the majority of cases it is the spill valve.
If you do not know how to fix this problem, it is better to be done by an expirienced technician.
Regards,
MG.

SOURCE: My 2200 Gc Karcher pressure washer oil got mixed

If you are talking about the oil in the pump then it should be 10W30 but must be NON DETERGENT. Remember the reservoir should only be 1/3 full

Karcher pressure washer smoking any ideas


is the crankcase over filled? To much oil will cause that, and check the air filter. I had a motor that sucked air thru the crankcase breather (and the oil with it) when the air filter was plugged up.
The only other cause I can think of would be a bad or broken piston ring.

Overfilled the oil and black smoke came. Can't startt now what i need to do


hi there pauly46 here

remove plug, pull engine over to remove oil from combustion chamber , clean plug,
refit, remove air filter - replace it if its wet with oil / or water damaged and clean backing plate , drain float bowl and check oil in carb, refit bowl and connect water supply to pump - turn on and start engine ( sounds like you hydraulicd the piston in the cylinder )

engine may blow blue / white smoke for a while then settle back

note do not use a sae 30 , use a 20w/50 oil or 10w/40. honda engine with low oil shut down
units on them have a problem with sae 30 oil

cheers hope it helps

Karcher 2400 psi with honda motor started up big puff of white smoke from exaust it shut off noiw wont start whats going on


I have a john deere 3000psi pressure washer with similar problem. Running fine then a puff of smoke and it shut down. I checked the oil and found it full of water. Not only that but since I still had the water turned on, the water was flowing out of the dip stick tube. I'm trying to find a solution online and will pass any information on.

Engine runs rough, burns tons of oil, and keps shutting down


Could be too much oil. Check oil livel and make sure that the oil is not too thin (gasoline in oil). Install new spark plug, add premium fuel in tank and start engine without the air filter (air filter could be dirty or soaked in oil). Run for a while to see if condition improves (no or less smoking). Replace air filter while the engine is running to see if it makes a difference in performance. If installing air filter had no effect, and engine continues to smoke most likely valve guides or rings are faulty. Hopefully it will clear up. Good luck

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started...


You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken.

Pressure washer that leaks oil through the air breather


Most likely your air filter is plugged or dirty, or the crank case vent valve needs to be cleaned.if it still does it check that the oil level is at the full mark, if overfilled it would cause the same problem.

Engine keeps shutting down


Most Honda engines have an oil pressure switch that prevents engine damage due to low/no oil pressure. Make sure there is sufficient oil in the engine and that the wire is connected to the pressure switch.
