On the very bottom of the motor is a square plug to drain the oil. The machine must be elevated to allow the oil to flow into a drain pan. If you don't see a square plug then look for a small 1/4 inch tube coming from the bottom of the crankcase with a hex cap on the end of it. If you cannot find either of these, then you must turn the pressure washer on its side and drain it through the same plug you fill from.

A gas power waher 3500 psi ,with a honda gx390..Start proper but after 15 minutes turn off by it self.How i solve this problem??


hi there aldao62367


if the oil level is at correct level , check that the tank breather in the fuel cap is clear
then change the oil it may be thinning out , and low oil sensor float is not floating and makes the unit think its got a low oil problem - shuts down, also check for a tight valve ?
off the top of head valve clearance for inlet 0.005 thou and ex 0.007 thou

change oil to a 20w/50 or 10w/ 40 oil

should hold about 1.0 litre

What viscosity oil is recomended for oil change?




  • Gasoline-powered pressure washers use an SAE 30W motor oil (10W-30) in the engine. Always consult the engine manual for specific instructions and be careful to put the correct oil in the correct place.

How to change oil in a pressure washer


From the manual CleanShot 2050 Briggs and Stratton

Change Pump Oil
1. Drain engine oil and fuel from pressure washer
2. Use an 8 mm allen wrench to remove black pump oil cap between high pressure outlet and garden hose inlet.
3. Tiltl pressure washer to drain oil into an approved container until it drips slowly from pump.
4.Tilt pressure washer in opposite direction and empty premeasured pump oil bottle into same opening (a small funnel may be helpful) [THIS IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS-NOT CLEARLY WRITTEN IN MY OPINION OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FOR WHOM ENGLISH IS A SECOND LANGUAGE]
5. Install black pump oil cap and tighten firmly.
6. Set pressure washer in upright position. Add fuel and engine oil.

From the engine manual use synthetic 5w-30, 10w-30 from -20 degrees F to temperature of 100 degrees F.
Change oil after 5 hours of operation initially. Before tipping to drain oil, remove fuel from fuel tank by running until tank is empty. Remove oil cap and dipstick and tip engine. Keep spark plug side up. Or remove drain plug from the bottom of pressure washer with a ratchet and square extension and drain oil from bottom. (fuel does not have to be removed)

Honda GX390 stalling in go cart


I believe its the the oil sensor. The engines are equipped with a low oil sensor and when you go around turns, accelerate, decelerate, the oil will flow from side to side and throw the sensor off, causing the engine to shut off. Remember, this is because the engine is from a pressure washer and pressure washers arent meant to be driven LOL.
