My pressure washer is a G 2500 oh n i have no pressure coming out, it turns on but no pressure.

Good news, your engine runs
But your pump may be bad

Here's how to test your pump
Check oil as outlined lower down
Disconnect the washer hose and gun
Connect water hose and turn on water and water should pass straight through the pump
Look for clogs in the hose-end where water hose connects to machine

Turn on machine and see if water shoots out pump
If water shoots out of pump, but no water shoots out of gun, then you may have a 'mud-dobber' wasp clog in your washer line or gun

Look for clogs in the end of each water connection.
Now connect washer hose without the gun, tun on the machine, and see if water shoots out of washer hose
Finally, the gun trigger mechanism may be bad
I don't know which gun you have ... but we replaced guns on our machine now-and-then ... google-search power washer guns for a replacement

Check your pump oil
Pump oil is SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil
Pump should be no more than 1/2 full of oil
Use plastic hose to drain pump oil
Do not turn machine on its side or turn machine over or engine oil will run into carburetor

I get brown stuff coming back into the pool when I turn on the pump in filter mode. This goes on for about 30 seconds and then clears off, but the water remains cloudy even after long period of running...

You have a multi-port valve? There is a 'rinse' mode on the handle. After you back-wash, move the control to 'rinse' and run for 30 seconds or so ... them return it to filter mode. Always shut the pump off enwh changing the valve settings - ALWAYS wait at least 10 seconds when switching the pump from off to on. Always move the handle in a clock-wise direction.

I suggest you run your filter for longer periods each day, maybe even 24 hours until it gets cleared up. Have you removed the metal from your water using a sequestering agent? Use according to package directions. Balance your water. Keep the CL around 5 ppm, the pH at 7.4, the calcuim around 250, the TA at 100. Cyanuric acid should be betrween 60 and 100 but no more. Use "super blue" in your pool according to package directions. Have you checked the Combied Clorine? (The difference between Free CL and Total CL = Combined CL)

The rust that you saw may come from the engine, the metal parts of the radiator or the water pump itself. Removing the hoses for cleaning is fine as long as it is returned to their proper places. For the sources of the rust check first the radiator cap for corrosion, you may need to have it replaced as well. Check out the metal coils of the radiator if there is rust build up. To get to the water pump you will have to remove some serpentine belt and the timing belt to get to it. The work that will be used to get to it and replacing it is almost the same as in replacing a timing belt. Make sure to check the timing belt while at it to save time and labor. Whenever I replace my timing belt I also have the water pump checked and replaced if needed.

I would replace only if needed. If you have never changed I would change hoses and belts. Water pump, I would not change until it goes bad or is making noise.
