How much oil do you put in the pump for a generac pressure washer model # 01676?


Check and see if there is a sight glass on the side of the pump. If there is, just fill it until the oil shows up about half way in the sight glass.

I bought a new craftsman pressure washer 2700psi. Put oil and gas in it. Cranked on the first try. It worked for about 15 minutes and then cut off. Now the pull start is very hard to pull and will not...


Hello
Take out the spark plug and try pulling,if it is still hard then then there is a problem with the pull start mechanism.
Check the plug for oil fouling or fresh oil.If there is excessive oil you may have bad rings.

If in doubt, craftsman will honor the 1 year warranty no questions asked,for a new unit.

What oil goes in this unit?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This response applies only to the engine:
Use 30 WT SAE engine oil.
You can use either detergent or non-detergent oil. I recommned 3 oil changes normal oil change intervals using 30 WT SAE non-detergent oil and on the 4th oil change use a detergent 30 WT Oil.

Where do you add the oil on a DeWalt 3100psi pressure washer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

From reading everything I can find, i.e User's manual & parts manual the only thing you add oil too is the engine. The pressure pump does not have a liquid sump.

You can look at parts here detail D:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/dewalt-dpd3100-pressure-washer-parts-c-1009_7440_7445.html

So too add oil to the engine you would remove the dip stick from the crank case located on the opposite of the side of the engine as the oil sensor.

I recommend you use 30 WT SAE oil for 3 oil changes then on the 4th oil change use an HD 30 WT oil. The oil drain plug is located in the center of the side of the engine crank case base. On the 5th Oil change switch back to SAE 30 WT oil. Oil brands are not really important. They all have to meet SAE the same standards to carry the label of SAE. (Yes you can use a generic 30 WT SAE oil )

On a generac pressure washer that works fine.


Oil level in pump and motor OK? Spark plug not fouled? Has it sat for a while - carb dirty? Running (loaded) throttle rpm not high enough?
