SOURCE: 2.2l toyota camra engine has pressure leaking from engine when oil fill is removed from valve cover, is this normal, i also have small oil drip at pan gkt.

replace the pcv valve. If it is not working it will allow pressure to build up in the crankcase. this will cause leaks everywhere.

SOURCE: Oil leaking from pump

top is a breather you may be overfull of oil most pumps you can use engine oil .drain and put in half litre or if it has a sight glass top up to low side of glass and try it out.possible your seals on way out this usually then leaks at front or gets water in.if you still have good pressure oil seals easy to do.

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: 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.

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

Unloaded valve not working properly


ensure that you do not have any leak not one drop coming from the output of pump to the end of nozzle not one drop after releasing trigger if so replace leak these unloader valves rely on trap pressure if pressure not trap she will cycle over and over.

The pump is leaking some gray fluid


Gray fluid is usually indicative of old oil with water mixed into it. First you have to determine if the fluid is coming out of the motor or pressure pump. Then change the oil in that, or both, and then watch the condition of the oil when you use the washer. With new oil, it won't turn gray but will get a milky coloration to it. There shouldn't be any way for water to get into the motor oil short of the engine being sprayed directly with high pressure water. If water is getting into the pump oil you'll have to check the seals inside the pump.

I have a simpson G3000 pressure washer. The small high pressure line from the pump has developed a leak, (it's about 18"s) Do you have a part number I could use to get a replacement, or point me...


You can use a universal hose for replacement. This hose should not be under high pressure (usually inlet water hose pressure). This is a bypass that is used when you release the trigger to wand. Look closely at the brass fittings of the hose, sometimes they can be reused by removing the clamp and cutting off the rubber part. Use automotive rubber hose (suitable for hot water system/radiator )or black pressure hose from Lowes (sold bulk) that will fit snugly on the barb and use simple clamps. You can make new hose by buying barbs and hose from Lowes or hardware/plumbing store. Good luck

Oil leak at top of pump


The oil in the pump is probably leaking because a seal is blown and water is getting into the piston housing. Take a look inside at the oil. It should be brown and translucent. If it is gray, white or milky, you have a blown oil seal. This reservoir should only be 1/3 full of non-detergent oil to begin with. Hope this helps
