Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Briggs & Stratton engine loses power

I have a Briggs & Stratton power washer that wouldn't run so I replaced with an identical spark plug. Now it runs, but not at full power. Every so often it kicks into full power so I know I am not imagining this, but then it goes back to running at about 60%. I may have tipped the washer over when replacing the spark plug. Would oil leaking into the engine cause that?

Hello herb1007
If it is running it would burn any oil off the top of the piston. (that got there when you tipped it). It sounds like you carburetor needs cleaning. There are sprays on the market that sometime help with this.

Briggs & Stratton 2500 Power Washer Loses Pressure Time to Time


If by "a few minutes" you mean 180 seconds, I really don't know what to say. But if you mean 5-10 seconds, you probably are experiencing air in the water line or normal engine warm-up behavior when the choke has been set to full lean too soon.
