The RY80030 Pressure washer has a Faip pump on it. There is no drain plug and you do not change the oil in it. The pump only holds 4.5 ounces of oil and the pump only has a life expectancy of between 30 and 50 hours. If for some reason The oil gets drained, remove the pump from the motor and set it on a bench standing up on end. Remove the allen bolts holding the water and oil sides of the pump together.Be carful as the piston springs are under load. fill the pump 3/4 of the way full and replace the head. there is a smoke stack on the pump but it is simply a breather not an oil fill.

You should use what the pump manufacturer recommends. Typically a 30wt non-detergent (non foaming) oil. Do not over fill. If there is a sight glass half way is normal. Or if it has a dip stick follow the mark there.

you can use sae 30 in the motor and hydraulic oil or gear oil in the pump.
just note that there may be two oil filler holes on the motor.

The manufacturer recommends using
a pump protector/winterizer, such as
EX80, when storing the unit for more
than 30 days and/or when freezing
temperatures are expected. If a pump
protector/winterizer is not available,
*RV antifreeze needs to be run through
the pump as outlined in the steps
EXCell does make units that have an AR pump that requires pump oil. The VR2500 pump does not.
