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!"

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.

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.

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
