Gas leaking from carb on Briggs and Stratton engine

I have a Briggs and Stratton 6 HP Quantum engine on DAPC Excell 2300 PSI pressure washer. Have not used it for 2 or 3 years. When I wanted to use it recently I replaced the oil and spark plug. Added gas and it leaked truely from the carb. I opened the air filter and noticed the gas coming out of the hole from the carb. It drained completely. I cranked the engine and it started with a little smoke and I shut it down immediatley. Brigg's site recommends changing a gasket. How can I make sure it is not water in the carb? After all if there was any water in the carb shouldn't it have spilled when I drained the oil. The oil has to be drained from the oil inlet where the dip stick is by tilting the whole thing on it's side.

What is the bowl that is referred to in some FixYa suggestions. I cleaned car carbs, dismantled engines, replaced cluth plate but am not familiar with 2-cycle engine carb!

Your help will be appreciated.

My 5.5 hp Briggs & Stratton pressure washer won't start and gas leaks out of the air intake after several attempts on trying to start.


sounds like it's flooding . it could be a spark problem it could be that the carb needs to be rebuilt i would check for spark first you could also run a compression test on the engine . also keep in mind some times if your pump is clogged it will not let your engine start and will be hard to turn over .

I do like to know if this washer is good enough for my business as a used car dealer? Briggs & Stratton Murray 020456 2400 PSI 20 GPM 190cc Briggs Stratton


We power washed houses for years with a 2400psi machine. The machine weighed about 90 pounds. 1 strong man could pick up the weight, but usually it took 2 men to unload it from the trailer.

A small machine can advertise 2400 psi ... but that is for 3 square inches at a time. The heavier machine shoots a 10" or wider swath of 2400psi.

We ran our machine twice a week for years. We had a honda engine. I'm sure the briggs engine is good. I wouldn't buy a used machine... unless the price was low and it started on first pull. Electric starter on your power washer might be a repair-waiting-to-happen because it is constantly exposed to water and dirt.

Excell pressure washers used a series of numbers such as yours. I believe that that number will be for pump or pressure washer as a whole unit. Check Excell web site for a match. If you are looking for the engine model number check the fan shroud or valve cover or tag on engine itself. Good luck

Briggs & Stratton 6.5 hp Quantum


The problem that you are describing is caused by intake valve not seating correctly. I see this problem on engines that have many hours of use or lack of service. You may be able to grind /reseat /adjust valves but usually requires new guide, valve and spring. Enjoy
