What is the difference in oil filters?


There are two main types: centrifugal and filtering by medium.

Centrifugal can be engine driven or driven by a jet of oil.
Filtering by medium can be divided into two sub-groups of full-flow or by-pass types.

In both sub-groups the filter can be washable, replaceable element or spin-on canister.

The filtering medium can be gauze, felt or special paper.

If you want a further explanation please ask or consult a good motor vehicle technology book - The Motor Vehicle by Newton, Steeds and Garrett is a good one or Modern Cars and Commercial Vehicles by Arthur W. Judge.

Power washer runs until air filter is put back on


Have you replaced the air filter? Without the air filter the engine is getting enough oxygen to support combustion. With the air filter it does not get enough oxygen. If you have not replaced the filter it sounds like it is time to replace it. If you have been "cleaning" the old filter and reusing it, small particles may be lodged in the filter, reducing the airflow. Is it a pleated paper filter or a oil dipped foam filter. If it is a foam filter, have you cleaned it? If you replaced it was it a store replacement or a piece of foam you obtained and made it fit? Foam can be closed cell or open cell , both look similar but closed does not allow airflow and open does .

How much do air conditioner filters usually cost?


I will give you my advice on air filters. The filters you should use in your ac system is the old plain filters sold by national companies like Ace Hardware and the like. Most of you big box stores and major stores try to sell the new pleated filters. They actually make more money on the sale of these pleated filters than the old plain flat filters. The new pleated filters block at least 35% of the air in your system and typically result in your system not passing enough air volume to supply the required amount of air flow. The pleated filter cause the rooms at the end of the duct run to not get enough air and will be to hot in the summer and to cold in the winter.
So to answer your question, pleated filters in my area are about 3 to 5 times more expensive than the correct filter flat type filter.

PS Some times these flat filters I am talking about are sometimes referred to as 30 throw away filters. I just changed a 30 day throw away filter after having it in place for 16 months. Every month I take the filter out and vacuum off the fuzz and hair and put it back in the holder. As long as the filter media is clean and the sides are still intact the filter will continue to work for a long time.

SoSHope this helps.

How do i wash an air filter


1. APPLY CLEANER
Liberally spray K&N Air Filter Cleaner onto both sides of filter and allow to soak for 10 minutes to loosen the dirt. Do not allow cleaner to dry on air filter.
2. RINSE FILTERRinse off air filter with cool low-pressure water applied to the clean side out in order to flush the dirt out of the filter. Continue to rinse the filter until all traces of cleaner are gone. It may be necessary to repeat steps 1 and 2.
3. DRY FILTERAfter rinsing, gently shake off excess water and only allow filter to dry naturally. Do not oil until the filter is completely dry.
4. OIL FILTER
A.) Squeeze Oil (99-5050)
Apply K&N Air Filter Oil evenly along the crown of each pleat. Allow oil to wick for approximately 20 minutes. Touch up any light areas on either side of filter until there is a uniform red color at all areas.
B.) Aerosol Oil (99-5000)
Spray K&N Air Filter Oil evenly along the crown of each pleat holding nozzle about 3" away. Allow oil to wick for approximately 20 minutes. Touch up any light areas on either side of the filter until there is a uniform red color at all areas.

What PSI will the simpson Model WS5040H maintain while in use? I have had difficulty getting anywhere close to the rated PSI on a DeWalt 4200 PSI unit. Idle the pressure stays at about 4200 but as soon...


Engine is difficult to start when cold
  1. Check the battery condition, battery state of charge and starter motor current draw. Replace the battery if marginal and the starter motor if the current draw is beyond specification.
  2. Check the battery cable condition. Clean the battery terminals and replace corroded or damaged cables.
  3. Check the fuel system for proper operation. A fuel pump with insufficient fuel pressure or clogged injectors should be replaced.
  4. Check the engine's tune-up status. Note the tune-up specifications and check for items such as severely worn spark plugs; adjust or replace as needed. On vehicles with manually adjusted valve clearances, check for tight valves and adjust to specification.
  5. Check for a failed coolant temperature sensor, and replace if out of specification.
  6. heck the operation of the engine management systems for fuel and ignition; repair or replace failed components as necessary.
Engine is difficult to start when hot
  1. Check the air filter and air intake system. Replace the air filter if it is dirty or contaminated. Check the fresh air intake system for restrictions or blockage.
  2. Check for loose or deteriorated engine grounds and clean, tighten or replace as needed.
  3. Check for needed maintenance. Inspect tune-up and service related items such as spark plugs and engine oil condition, and check the operation of the engine fuel and ignition management system.

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.

I had the same problem 3 years old, maybe used 10 times - removed the air filter and the washer started fine. The air filter looked fine - I have not tried to replace it or figure out the root cause. I was just happy to get it running again :)

Won't run with air filter on


I have a fairly new pressure washer with the same problem and discovered that because it was temporarily stored on its back (rather than upright), oil seeped into the air filter housing. If you look at the air filter it may not look like it has oil on it - especially if the oil is new. Mine runs fine without the air filter, but as soon as I put it in, it does the same as yours. I came across this site since I am looking to order a new filter. Hope this helps.
