No water running after i installed a new water pump on my 2000 dodge durango 5.2l

this happens a lot in pump replacements , the engine block gets air locked and wont allow water to flow thru it , theres a few methods that work , One is to remove the coolant cap and keep filling it with fresh fluid running it till engine gets hot , this open port will allow air to escape
second method is to use a pressure cap tester to simulate the pressure rise in radiator and over several pressure/release /pressure /release cycles the air will be forced out till only water remains

I have a Nissan hard body 2,4 I. We recently did engine over haul. It's mixing water and oil.water gets finished in radiator when the engine is not running for days and it gets into the engine.

you have a bad gasket or someone didn't know how to build an engine, OR you reused a part that was cracked, A bad head or intake manifold. Pressure check the radiator and see if it hold pressure,. and or check oil pressure,,. if one or the other is losing pressure or has no pressure when you run the Nissan then your on the way as to where to look next for the problem

Engine runs fine. But it quits when I pull the trigger on the wand to start washing

Does this behavior change if the engine is warm and on minimum choke? Do you get any water spray before the engine quits? Carburetor could be dirty or float stuck. Try putting dose of carburetor cleaner through engine and cycle choke lever and engine speed lever back and forth while engine is running after it has warmed up without running water spray. See owners manual.

How do I find out why there is not pressur in the radator

I presume you have a pressure gauge installed on the radiator. and the engine is running. If you have no pressure after running the engine until the water temperature is hot, you should check the instrument of your vehicle to see if the engine is not over heating. The water pump is circulating the water so the water is in constant motion and is cooled by the air flowing thru the radiator. The air is drawn thru the radiator by the fan, either engine driven or electric powered. When the cap is off you should see movement of the collant in the radiator. also chech if you see any oil residue mixed with the water. in that case the water level should drop because the water is draining into the oil tank.. If you see no water movement the water pump is not moving the coolant thru the engine and the engine will over heat.The water pump is bad in that case.

I have oil in my water resivior and its overflowing with oil.

Sounds like you have a leak that may be due to a bad seal,a bad gasket or a cracked head. When the engine is running. Oil pressure is higher than water pressure. But when the engine is shut off oil pressure goes to zero but water pressure is still at 15 psi. untill the engine cools off. that's when you get water and oil to mix. If you do an oil change you could find water in the oil pan. Doing a water pressure test will verify a leak but won't tell you where.

My Pressure washers runs for a few minutes and loses pressure then shuts off. What should i do?

Use a high quality carb cleaner poured directly into the gas tank and use a liberal (large) amount. Run the engine as long as you can with the choke on full or half full in order to get the carb cleaner into the carb. Then turn the engine off and let it sit for two or three days so that the carb cleaner can do its thing. While this is going on, why not do the below as well to improve water pressure.With the engine turned off, pour liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet until it comes out the other end at first just water that is already within the pump will come out but make sure you put enough TSP that it starts to come out the wand outlet. Then, let it sit for 48 hours and don't run it at all. This is how I fixed my no pressure problem owner of Honda 5.5 with Comet pressure washer pump

Hooked it up with water started engine and no

Your water system is plugged with "gunk"
You will need to slush it out with water and air pressure if you can until it runs clear

For pressure washer Model WP-2402-SWHB, SN 10132043: With Honda engine running, or no engine running, no water will pass through the pump.

Hi If no water is passing through your pump on mains water pressure and not sucking from a barrel then it will be either a blocked nozzle,blocked unloader on the side of the pump or a blocked water filter.
