SOURCE: pressure washer that leaks oil through the air breather

Most likely your air filter is plugged or dirty, or the crank case vent valve needs to be cleaned.if it still does it check that the oil level is at the full mark, if overfilled it would cause the same problem.

SOURCE: Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure

You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve stucks it will leave a micro switch ON. So the machine keeps working with the gun closed. This will in turn creat internal pressure and damages the head, valves and chemical non-return and even damage outlet hose. So besides fixing the leakages you must check and service the spill valve. I often replace the spill valve. One must also checks if the micro switch is faulty. Now very important that what you mentioned that the machine cycles at one minute intervals, with trigger closed...this is most probably always the spill valve fault. If you open machine you see a place where there is a wire..this belongs to the micro switch...under you find the spill valve. Intake and suction valves may now also have a fault. Also there are systems with non-return valves at the machine outlet. You have to tackle by elimination. Fix the leakage..then tackle spill valve and micro switch.

SOURCE: karcher pressure washer leaking oil

Usually electric pressure washers only have oil on the pump, so its very likely that you will find the problem there. I'd say check all the pump seals and if that doesnt solve the problem, you can check to see if all bolts are tight when you close the pump back.
If by any chance you are looking for a new machine and/or parts for your machine, log in to www.roncoshop.com where you will be able to find pretty much anything for your preassure washer.

What kind of pump oil for simpson gcv190


I need to know the model of the pump you have. You are giving us the model of the engine which is a Honda GCV190. Can you tell me the model on the pump itself. It is more than likely an AR pump but I need to know . It is more than likely going to take 30 weight non detergent but some pumps take specific oil. You can also call Barens at Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... They can hook you up with the correct oil for your pump. Good luckOADXAV

Oil is milky colored on my kingcraft pressure


Milky-looking oil is a sign of water mixed-in with the oil. This is often a sign of severe engine damage (cracked block, cracked head) in a water-cooled engine. (i.e., one having internal water jackets such as a car engine). On a pressure washer it is sometimes an indication that the owner used the pressure washer on itself, i.e., so as to clean the pressure washer with the pressure washer - very bad idea. If this is the case, then the pressure washer is most likely ruined. In any case the milky-looking oil is a sign that the oil has become contaminated with water, and probably a lot of water. I would drain the oil completely and replace the oil filter too if it has one, then refill the crankcase with new oil. Then try using it again for 10 or 15 minutes or so, then reinspect the oil. If it's milky-looking again then I'd set it out at the curb on trash day.

What would cause oil to turn milky white?


That is the typical color when water is mixing with the oil.
Probably a leaking seal or gasket.
The washer will need servicing.

I have a cambell hausfeld 5.5 horsepower pressure washer that leaks a milky substance from the bottom of the motor. Why is that?


The "milky solution" could be oil that's been contaminated with water. You may have a bad seal within the pump, allowing water to mix with the oil...

Oil milky white in pump


it may have a slow water leak inside the pump.
change oil and monitor the new oil.
if it goes milky the next time you use it then it has a bad leak and the seals will need to be
replaced,otherwise the bearings will rust & seize

What type of oil can i use


The engine and the pump can use the same oil. SAE 30 non detergent oil. No need to pay more for speciality oil. Check oil often and look for any unusual signs such as milky or foamy oil in pump which would indicate water leaking past seals. Good luck.

What oil do i use in the pump? The oil is milky and needs changing.


Well you can use direct recommended from Ace Hardware see link.

http://www.acehardware.com/product/index.jsp?productId=1340266

They recommend 250 hours, but i'd change more often, like you said when it's milky. If it begins to get water in the oil sooner, that indicates your piston to crankcase seal is beginning to leak.
