Honda gx160 5.5 hp getting too hot


On most of these engines since they are air cooled you need to have all of the metal shielding that came with the engine on it. These help direct the flow of air from the flywheel fins to cool the engine. You may have to remove the metal shields and clean the fins if you have an older motor that has been run in really dirty areas. If air can't flow between the fins it can't cool. I will mention oil level just because oil also helps cool the engine how ever most of these engines will not run if the oil is low due to an oil pressure switch that prevents it from running if the oil level is too low.

How to check oil on honda gx160


There is an oil dipstick on the side of the engine. Remove the dipstick and check the oil on the dipstick.
The oil should be about half way up the threads on this engine.
If you need to add oil you can use SAE 30 or a 10W30 Oil.

Gx160 Pressure Washer runs fine for 20 seconds Then shuts off


It could be several things...oil level, make sure its sitting on level ground...if not did you use StaBil when you laid her up for the season? If not, go to Advance Auto and buy "SeaFoam" and following directions run it for as long as it will run...make sure you have water running through the pump during tests!
Good Luck

Engine keeps shutting down


Most Honda engines have an oil pressure switch that prevents engine damage due to low/no oil pressure. Make sure there is sufficient oil in the engine and that the wire is connected to the pressure switch.

Honda powered gx160 model pressure washer wont start


Buy a new plug, drain out all of the old gas and put in new gas, and take a look at the air cleaner. If the air cleaner is dirty replace it. There you now have a good spark, good fuel and good air. The engine should start. If it doesn't get some carberator cleaner spray and some starting fluid spray.
