Rigid 3300psi Pressure Washer chokes after engine warms up. Then looses water pressure. What is the problem and can I fix it?


if the engine slows then so will the pump... and so will the pump power.

engines are all the same and so just google "servicing engines"

an engine requires fuel - air - ignition and compression......

if your engine starts and runs then it must have reasonable compression so check / replace / clean the fuel and air filters...
check the condition of the spark plug / clean it / replace it

after these basic checks you move onto measuring the compression and checking the carburettor which requires a level of skill you may not have

oh, check the oil too !

if you have a make and model of engine (not pressure washer) the manufacturer may have service kits and service manuals... briggs and stratton / honda / tecumseh (you'll be lucky) / sumec linhai

How do I change the oil on a Porsche 911 Turbo? Anything I sould know?


  • Jack up your Porsche using a floor jack and place the car securely on jack stands at all four corners using the factory jacking points.
  • 2 Place an oil container under the oil drain plug of the motor.
  • 3 Using an 8-mm allen socket, remove the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan.
  • 4 Let the oil drain thoroughly--this will take about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • 5 Once all the oil is drained from the engine, install a new drain plug along with a new aluminum sealing washer. Tighten the drain plug to 37 lbs .

  • The oil filter cartridge is located in front of the oil pan on the right side. With an oil filter removal wrench, unscrew and remove the cartridge. Be careful of spilling oil.
  • Install a new oil filter cartridge and O-ring. Before installation, run a bead of oil around the O-ring to lubricate it. Torque the oil filter cartridge to 19 lbs.
  • Pour new oil into the oil filler neck located in the engine bay. 1998 to 2001 911s (996) take 8.5 quarts, and 2004 and up take 8.25 quarts. Newer 911s (997) take 9 quarts. When filling the engine with oil, pour in 8 quarts and then use the dipstick to get the amount of oil exact.
  • Lower the car off the jackstands.

    What do I need to change the oil myself?


    1. First off, determine if changing oil in your vehicles is something that you really want to do if you have never done so before. There are some up-front expenses that must be considered to perform the work safely and you must have a location to perform the work too. To purchase the tools required and perform only a single oil change would not be very economical. But, changing oil over the life of each vehicle will average the cost of the tools so they end up being very inexpensive.

      So, if you are ready to go the very first step is gather up the list of the materials listed. Make sure you get the correct filter and oil for your vehicle. You can normally get this information from your owners manual, online sources or the local auto parts store.
    2. Step 2 Select a level location to perform your work. Using either the ramps or a jack, elevate the car to a position that allows you access to the engine area. Make sure the car is secure by setting the parking brake and set jack stands in place if you jacked the car up. Open the hood of the car, locate and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. Wipe off any oil on each item and place it to the side.
    3. Step 3 Move underneath the vehicle and locate the oil drain plug on the engine oil pan. With your drain pan located directly below the plug, remove the oil drain plug. If the engine is warm, the oil will be too - do not change oil on a hot engine, wait until it cools some, but not cold either. Warm oil will drain better.
    4. Step 4 The oil will take roughly 5-10 minutes to completely drain, once it becomes a drip, replace the drain plug and tighten it securely. Do not overtighten it as you may strip the threads. Now, locate the oil filter and placing the drain pan beneath it, remove the filter with your filter wrench. Some oil will start to drain out as you remove the filter. With the filter out, allow any remaining oil to drain, then wipe the mount making sure that there is no rubber gasket left in place as sometimes the gasket will stick to the mount. (new filter has a new gasket on top of it) Now, lubricate the new filter gasket with a touch of oil and then spin it onto the mount to hand tight. Using your filter wrench, give it about a 1/2- 1 turn more.
    5. Step 5 Back to the top of the engine, pour your fresh oil into the oil fill and once you have completed that, replace your dipstick. Start the engine and allow it to idle. Check for any oil leaks by looking under the engine area, but do not go underneath the car with it running. Everything should be good and you can now lower the car to the ground.
    6. Step 6 Your last step is to recycle your used oil and filter. Place the used oil in your disposal can and also drain as much oil from the filter as possible. Place the used filter in a plastic grocery bag and take both back to the auto parts store or your local recycling center for proper disposal.
      The normal cost of 5 quarts of oil and an oil filter runs about $15 which saves you 50%-70% of what a quick change oil station would charge you. You may wish to also consider using synthetic oil in the future which will allow you to extend your oil change intervals and reduce our dependence on fossil oil.

    How to change engine oil?


    You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.

    You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.

    Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill
