Typically they use a 10w30 oil in the engine and a non-detergent SAE30 oil in the pump portion.

SOURCE: what oil, how much oil, and how change oil on pump of ry80030a

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.

SOURCE: what type of oil goes in a comet axd 3020 pressure

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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
First here is the owders manual:
http://www.excellpressurewasher.com/documents/pdf/D30494-E.pdf

There are 3 versions of the VR2500 Pressure Washer.

1 being the VR2500 Type 0 It has the comet pump that needs no oil
2 being the VR2500 Type 1 Also with the comet pump.
3 being the VR2500-C Again with the coment pump

The allen set screws that you removed hold the bearings in place.

The only pump maintence required is winterization with either a winterizer EX80 or RV anti-freeze

PUMP

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
below.

EXCell does make units that have an AR pump that requires pump oil. The VR2500 pump does not.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a Comet 4040 and oil and water mix is bubbling out of the red cap on top of my pressure washer. Can anyone tell me what repair kit I might need to fix this problem?


Hi this could be the oil and pump seals worn. Also make sure that you don,t have the transit plug in or the pump cannot breath. It should have a air vented dipstick.

Assembly


HI your machine would have been delivered with a blanking plug in the pump. You will need to remove this and fit a vented pump or your pump will build up too much pressure inside.

Laking below sprayer large rubber piece covers area that is leaking


Sounds like your thermal relief has popped and is not reseting. These are an easy replacement. Usually availble as a "thermal relief valve" in sizes 3/8npt or 1/4"npt ..national pipe thread. Might also mean that your pump is overheating. Check and replace the pump oil. Make sure you do not allow this sprayer to sit and run without triggering the gun every couple of minutes.

Foaming in pump oil window


I dont know which comet pump you have, but it is just easier to get a new pump from one of the pressure washer companies on the internet and they sell them on ebay. You can also probably get a better pump that will fit your engine as well. Also, have you tried just changing the oil and not fill it too full? On my 5000 lb washer, if i fill the oil too high when I change the oil, it will foam some. Hope this helps you, Rick
