Question about Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000
Compressor started leaking while using sprayer. Used it until leak got bad. Tuned it off. Now I have taken it out to see if I can tell if it is a gasket or what. But can't budge the engine. It seems froze . Oil is OK
The pump was able to run (crank) when still warm because it was still thermally expanded.
now that it has cooled - the pistons and block have shrunken, and the pump has seized.
The silver stuff you saw extruding was bits of aluminum from the block!! Theres nothing else in there but oil.
I would venture to say you have at minimum blown a piston seal!
You will need a new pump. If the piston has scored the inside of the block bad enough, replacement is your only option.
Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi, this issue might occur due to the pressure variance by the unloader/pressure regulator valve or slipping belt on belt drive systems. Worn packings in the unloader will not maintain pressure. Try lowering the pressure to 1000 psi then slowly increase until problem reveals then lower pressure again to maintain steady stream. This problem can also develop if the wrong size tip is used in the gun. Example, if output rating is 3000 psi at 4.5 gal per min and you are using a tip for 3000 psi at 4 gpm. The unloader will release causing variance of pressure. Easy way to lower pressure of system is to increase the size of the tip to 5 or 5.5 gpm in a system rated at 4.5 gpm. This will help!!
