Testimonial: "I'm going to guess it overheated. The machine doesn't have more than three hours on it and its only been run for 30~45 minutes at a time. No water leaks and no water in pump oil. However when I changed the pump oil it was black. How do you prevent one from overheating? If I'd been running this thing for hours I could understand, but 30 minutes and it blows the pump? Thanks a million for your help!"

SOURCE: Help! i have a pacific hydrostar 65078. Engine

You have to have a clogged hose gun. Try blowing it out with air. Also, Harbor Freight sells the Pacific-Hydrostar and you can buy a 2 year full warranty for around $70 bucks. A small price to pay if you use your powerwasher on a frequent basis. If anything goes wrong, regardless of what the cause, they simply replace the washer.Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How full and with what oil to fill pump vent.

Any pressure washer pump should be no more than half full. The reason is if you fill it completely up when the piston strokes it will blow the seals out of the pump. Usually there is a sight gage on the side of the pump. I will look your model up and see what I can find as far as quantity for the pump. I won't be too long just read the 2nd response and please do not rate this one. I will get back to you ASAP.

SOURCE: Pacific Hydrostar 95618. pump oil?

37d1355.jpg

Pacific Hydrostar is another pacific rim product that has no website, and no manuals online, and nobody to contact, and no parts available. These machines must be made for the throw-away user.

Pump oil comes about half way up inside pump housing > pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil SAE20 SAE 30
Engine oil comes half way up dip stick > engine oil 10W30

Do not turn power washer on its side or upside down when draining oil, or engine oil will go into carburetor and machine will not start

How much oil does a pacific hydrostar in the pump their is no site glass pump 95618


There is no oil in this pump. When storing it long term , put some automotive antifreeze in it. Disconnect the water hose and tip the unit on its face to drain water out of the inlet fitting for short term non freezing times.

I need to change the pump on my pacific hydrostar 2800


That cannot be done over the internet, no matter what ISP you have.

Further, you need to be more-specific about exactly what you have.

Pacific Hydrostar makes both sump pumps and pressure washers with 2800 ratings (gallons per hour and PSI, respectively). So you should use the model number of your device, not what the large print on its decals say, when requesting help with them.

Pump oil change, how much oil


There should be a drain plug (bolt) at the bottom of the pump to drain the oil. Undo bolt and drain the oil. Replace bolt and fill pump with new oil. Look for a sightglass on the side of the pump. Fill so the oil level is in the centre of sightglass.

What oil, how much oil, and how change oil on pump of ry80030a


The RY80030 Pressure washer has a Faip pump on it. There is no drain plug and you do not change the oil in it. The pump only holds 4.5 ounces of oil and the pump only has a life expectancy of between 30 and 50 hours. If for some reason The oil gets drained, remove the pump from the motor and set it on a bench standing up on end. Remove the allen bolts holding the water and oil sides of the pump together.Be carful as the piston springs are under load. fill the pump 3/4 of the way full and replace the head. there is a smoke stack on the pump but it is simply a breather not an oil fill.
