Did you loan it to someone? Perhaps someone put a fuel/oil mixture in it thinking it is a 2-cycle engine. That could cause white smoke. The other thing that causes white smoke is an engine carburetor not getting the fuel/air ratio right for some reason. White smoke means too much air -- too little gas. Your fuel filter could be stopped up or your gas could be contaminated with water or diesel -- or 2-cycle engine oil.

It may be due to some water getting into the engine. I would change the gas and change the oil.

I have a john deere 3000psi pressure washer with similar problem. Running fine then a puff of smoke and it shut down. I checked the oil and found it full of water. Not only that but since I still had the water turned on, the water was flowing out of the dip stick tube. I'm trying to find a solution online and will pass any information on.

Heavy blue smoke is burning oil.

I expect the spark plug fouled in those few seconds. After winterising the spark plug usually needs cleaning several times before there is a reliable start and continued running.

White smoke. when it won't start, raw gas comes out of the exhaust GS190 honda Karcher 3000 PSI


Sounds like it's flooded. Close the throttle and open the choke if equipped. Pull it through a few times and then open the throttle a bit.

My pressure washer works 4 a while then starts to sputter & dies?


I am going to suggest a tune of of the engine. Change the oil and oil filter. Check the air filter is clean and replace it if it isn't. A new spark plug.
