It's a four cycle, gas only. You only mix gas and oil on two cycle engines where there's no place to put oil such as trimmers and blowers.

SOURCE: oil to gas mixture for a craftsman 3.75 hp pressure washer

There is universal 2 cycle oil available (pro-mix at Lowe's for example) that is good for all ratios from 16:1 to 50:1. With this oil you add the same amount of oil to the gas independent of ratio required. One gas can, no ratio worries. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Gas powered pressure washer wont start

On pressure washers the more you pull the cord the more pressure builds up making it difficult to pull and start. I hold the trigger down as i pull this keeps the pressure down. If this is not the problem then take a look at the Spark plug, Air Filter if all is fine then check the fuel. How often do you use it, fuel loses its Octane when sitting around. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer is helpful in anyways. Good Luck and have a Great Day.

My prime bulb looses pressure and first start is hard. I have to remove fuel line from filter and cover with thumb prime re install then first start takes time.


Does the engine run fine after it starts? Most common problem with primer bulb losing prime is an air leak in the fuel line or primer bulb. Air leaks don't always leak fuel. If there is an air leak between the primer bulb and gas tank there is no pressure, only vacuum. If it is not a major leak it might not leak without pressure but it will allow air to enter the fuel line. If it is a very minor air leak it could allow air to replace the liquid in the fuel line over time, but so little air once it is primer again that the fuel pump can over come it with volume of fuel.

Primer bulbs do not stay firm, as they are when initially pumped up, after the engine is running. There are check valves in the primer bulb that hold pressure in the primer bulb and throughout the fuel line to the engine. Once the engine starts the fuel pump creates vacuum drawing fuel into the engine diminishing this pressure and releasing the check valves. At this point the primer bulb is just another segment of fuel hose allowing fuel to pass through it as the fuel pump demands. The primer bulb functions much better when the outlet side is higher than the inlet side. This position makes it easier for the check valves in the primer bulb to seat and release as needed. If the primer bulb is functioning properly and is positioned with the outlet side higher than the inlet it should not be necessary to cover the end of the fuel hose with your thumb to get it to prime.

If the engine is hard to start after being fully primed there could be a problem with the fuel system on the engine. Some engines are hard to prime once air has entered the system, especially fuel injected models.

Hello my question is on my powerwasher the primer rubber button has like melted away how would that be replaced


You need to go to a small engine repair center to find the primer bulb that fits on your motor. It will depend on what motor and carburator you have. They are fairly easy to replace. The primer bulbs 'melt' or go soft because of ethenol in gas. You should expect to get one to two years out of a bulb so you may want to get an extra or two.

My washer will start but only run for a few seconds......unless you hold the primer bulb in


The primer bulb has a pin hole in it:
This is what you need:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/partdetail/1079/14606.php

All local lawn mower repair / parts sources have this part in stock. This is a common issue with primer bulbs that you have to hold the bulb in so that it will run. When you do that your stopping it from drawing air through the hole in the primer bulb so it operates normally. Replace the primer bulb and it will be fine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Diagram of fuel lines from tank to primer to carb and back to tank for a poulan 2050 chainsaw.

Fuel Line Replacement
  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection.
  • If the saw is equipped with a primer bulb, the output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the primer (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill the bulb as it inflates).
  • The pressure side of the primer returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed.

Sounds like the primer bulb dry rotted from sitting &/or the float is stuck in carb. If gas is indeed leaking from bulb. It will need to be replaced. While it is apart, clean carb inside & out with spray carb cleaner.

I can't start my powerwasher. Where is the choke?


This Power washer has a 3.75 hp Briggs and Stratton Engine. It does not have a choke but does have a primer bulb. You must depress the primer bulb at least 3 times to start the engine. The primer bulb is on the side of the carb. It can be black or red. If your still unable to locate the primer bulb please provide your ENGINE model number and I will provide you a link to a diagram for the location of the primer bulb.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Engine wont stay running


It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.
