Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
I have a John deer 3000psi pressure washer with a Honda Engine. It starts up fine and has good pressure for a little while, then the engine will start revving up and down and the pressure drops then it will stall.

Most Honda engines have an oil pressure switch that prevents engine damage due to low/no oil pressure. Make sure there is sufficient oil in the engine and that the wire is connected to the pressure switch.

Carb is mostly likely gummed up and should be cleaned. Best option is to dismantle the carb and soak in solvent or equivelant for a couple hours and replace it. Our use Gum Out. Do make sure you have a good spark plug and a strong spark. If you have a fuel filter, then replace it. Check intake filter as well

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

I had the very same problem and nobody could help me until I was talking with a co-worker. Its a very easy fix. I couldn't believe it. I did this yesterday and it ran like a charm. You can either replace the head gasket or just by a good sealer to use on your existing gasket or replace it. I use Indian head gasket sealer on mine. The bolts on the bottom were lose causing a loss of compression. If you need more info you can email me (for free) and I will tell you exactly how to do it. Agr8flson@aol.com
