Engine racing very high when pump not using


Sounds like the engine governor is out of adjustment or it is sticking. The engine governor job is to regulate the engine RPM and torque that is needed to power a load and return to the manufactures no load engine RPM. Recommended RPM's on pressure washers and generators are usually governed at 3,600 RPM's because that is where the engine is producing most of its torque and HP.

My Generac pressure washer will work great for as long as I hold the trigger. If I release the trigger to move something or change positions and then pull the trigger again the pressure doesn't come...


Sounds like the unloader valve built-in to your system is sticky. Try lowering the pressure of the regulator to lowest setting then re-adjusting. This will place a different pressure /load on the valve. Also when you store your unit, displace the water in the pump with oil so that lubricant will prevent the unloader from sticking. If you continue to have problem, replace the unloader. Good luck

Hi. I'm scratch building a pressure washer using a Comet BXD2831G pump. If I don't plan on using any type of detergent, is it OK (or manditory) to plug the detergent intake to keep it from sucking...


No need to plug the injector because under pressure (internal force/pressure) keeps valve shut. It only opens when large nozzle (black tip) is used lowering internal pressure causing siphon effect. Some chemical injectors have a thumbwheel to shut off flow completely. Your plug idea will keep the opening clean for later use. You can adjust pressure by ear. Your pump will take a 6.5 hp engine to develop max pressure of 2700 psi, however, to extend the life of the pump and engine, adjust pressure to about 75 % of capacity or about 2000 psi. To develop 6.5 hp your engine must turn at about 3600 rpm which is over the max rpm of the pump 3400rpm. The rpm of the engine is usually set by using the appropriate governor spring. Easy task, by using the model number and type of the engine, you can determine the proper governor spring and placement on the throttle arm, maybe about 3000 rpm would be sufficient. Now with engine rpm set, turn pressure adjustment up until engine sounds to you like at full labor, then adjust down to a workable pressure for majority of work and turn up for stubborn debris. Good luck with your project.

Pacific Hydrostar 95618. pump oil?


37d1355.jpg

Pacific Hydrostar is another pacific rim product that has no website, and no manuals online, and nobody to contact, and no parts available. These machines must be made for the throw-away user.

Pump oil comes about half way up inside pump housing > pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil SAE20 SAE 30
Engine oil comes half way up dip stick > engine oil 10W30

Do not turn power washer on its side or upside down when draining oil, or engine oil will go into carburetor and machine will not start

I have 5.5hp briggs&stratton pressure washer Simoniz S2350. Would you know the PSI for this item?


Every 5.5 HP pressure washer runs between 2,200 and 2,500 PSI with most set by the manufacturer at 2,400 PSI with 3,600 RPM of engine speed.

Due to the power required to produce more than 2,500 PSI a 5.5 HP engine would lose engine speed as it can not produce enough power for the higher PSI output. It is a matter of hydraulics vs input power.

Any gas pressure washer will produce lower pressure with lower engine RPM. Looking at S2350 as your model number yours may be set to 2,350 PSI by Simoniz.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Have a 11hp power washer pump not sucking water, how do i fix ?


Hey there...

Is the washer a direct drive or belt drive unit? If it is a direct drive ( the pump bolts directly to the engine) then the pump needs to be force fed the water, either by city pressure or a transfer pump. If it is belt driven, the lower rpm's should pull water, so more detail would be needed...

Help! i have a pacific hydrostar 65078. Engine runs fine. Pump pressure is good with the hose off. the stream shoots across my driveway. But when i connect the hose(sears 3/8 25'' i loose all pressure.


You have to have a clogged hose gun. Try blowing it out with air. Also, Harbor Freight sells the Pacific-Hydrostar and you can buy a 2 year full warranty for around $70 bucks. A small price to pay if you use your powerwasher on a frequent basis. If anything goes wrong, regardless of what the cause, they simply replace the washer.Hope this helps.
