It is possible that the oil pressure switch is not functioning properly or you have a lighter oil in the machine than is recommended.

Post a comment if you need more assistance.

Your nozzle could be plugged or partially plugged. Also, try running it with the high pressure hose taken off to flush the pump.

SOURCE: pressure washer lost pressure in the middle of a job

The pressure valve has stuck in the high pressure position. This prevents anymore inflow and hence no further water will be pumped.

Rebuild the valve... There are O Rings to replace and clean the bore with croocus cloth. Lube the O rings with plumber's grease... good as new! 15 minute job. Get EXACT sized O rings for the unit.

SOURCE: What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power

The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.

How to remove pump from a powerboss 020309 power washer


Remove the 4 mounting bolts and it will slide of the shaft if it's not rusted. If it's a little rusty it will take time and some good rust buster applied between the pump and engine onto the engine output shaft. Hope this helps, it's not always the easiest thing to do.

My Honda 2600 powerstroke loses power. When I first start the sprayer I have full power but then the power diminishes not entirely but enough so I do not have the same cleaning power.


Water pressure from home may be to low to handle GPM"s for washer if that is good may be valve body control unit,can get rebuild kits relatively cheap.

Started by Craftsman 2700 PSI , 2.3 GPM Briggs & Stratton Powered Pressure Washer for first time in 9 months. Added new oil, and gas. started but is smoking from muffler and is dripping what appears to...


The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.

Hope this helps!

I have a powerboss 3000 psi washer. The engine is running but it is not building pressure.


you may have a bad by-pass pressure control valve.The pump may also have bad seals inside.You can replace the pump but it is very expensive.You can buy a rebuild kit and a new by-pass control at a local supplier.Be careful not to let the motor run more than 30 to 60 seconds after you let go of the trigger.The water in the pump will get extremely hot and destroy your pump.

It sounds like your intake is plugged with debris. What usually happens is a water hose that has been laying around will get various stuff in it -- dirt, grass clippings, small insects (and whatever they take into it nest building). These days most homeowner pressure washers do not have a proper inlet filter, but just a screened hose washer like on a washing machine. The unloader valve can cause pressure variance, but usually not in the manner that you described. The pump is being "starved" for input water. Just use a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull out the screen and clean it or replace it.
