    Since you have a 2050 psi I am assuming that you have a gas pressure washer. Do you want to change the oil in the pump or the engine?

    what type of oil go in pump & motor

  • Mike Carew Feb 12, 2017

    Engine oil for most gas engines is 30W. Use pressure washer anti-freeze pressure release can for winter storage of pressure washer or to lubricate pump. You can get only pressure washer pump oil from a garden equipment repair shop, but usually not required.

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)

Dear joanfbarber,
Various power washers are filled with oil after the the head with the pistons is removed. The head must be removed gradually against the strenght of the piston springs. Some washers must be placed upside down for this to be possible. When putting back the head, it must be screwed down squarely. Besides changing the oil, it is recommended that all seal be renewed. If old oil is found milkey, then it has water in it. The main cause for this are scratched pistons. If the pistons are scratched they must be renewed.
Regards,
Fulltech.

The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.

Hope this helps!

Need to know where oil drain plug is on 6.75 hp Briggs & Stratton engine on 2550 psi troy bilt pressure washer!!


I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

Oil


Remember when your searching for something you can't find the internet is always your best bet. You should also use a good search engine; www.bing.com is one of the best search engines I have ever used. I searched some stores that have the oil your looking for, one online store is www.amazon.com and if you have one near you and they also carry it at Sears. The grade of the oil is definitely weird, 75W90. Also if you would like to look for other stores that carry it go to Bing and type "Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Oil" into the search bar.
