It most likely is a ring problem as the gasket only keeps the combustion gases in and would leak around the head as a loud noise. Of course it could be the valves, but I doubt it as most of these engines are splash fed instead of pressure, so the only explanation is the compression ring is letting oil blow past.

Pressure washer has no pressure at all

check for blocked jet at the end of the wand

check the pressure regulator valve. It may be set wrong or stuck open. If that is not the problem then a valve may be stuck in the pump.

Does not put out pressured water

Rebuild the water admittance valve, sometimes called pressure relief and other names. The valve has a spring and when you trigger the wand reducing the pressure behind the valve spool reduces and the spool moves letting IN more water to be pumped. Disassemble the valve. Clean the bore with crocus cloth on dowel rod... deposits build up. Replace O Rings on the spool and lube with plumber's grease and re-assemble.. Good as new!
