Oil is milky colored on my kingcraft pressure
Milky-looking oil is a sign of water mixed-in with the oil. This is often a sign of severe engine damage (cracked block, cracked head) in a water-cooled engine. (i.e., one having internal water jackets such as a car engine). On a pressure washer it is sometimes an indication that the owner used the pressure washer on itself, i.e., so as to clean the pressure washer with the pressure washer - very bad idea. If this is the case, then the pressure washer is most likely ruined. In any case the milky-looking oil is a sign that the oil has become contaminated with water, and probably a lot of water. I would drain the oil completely and replace the oil filter too if it has one, then refill the crankcase with new oil. Then try using it again for 10 or 15 minutes or so, then reinspect the oil. If it's milky-looking again then I'd set it out at the curb on trash day.
