SOURCE: when spray starts engine stops

sounds like unit is drawing air into system or has a low water supply ,you will need to check the litres per minute supply to m/c,also could be grit stcking a valve or worn piston seals (common on m/cs that **** the water rather than being fed from mains supply) hope this helps, this is also very common to cat pumps

SOURCE: The engine starts just fine. Everything goes okay

One thing I have found about pressure washers...you need to run water through the hose and everything until you get all the air out...or they will bog down and such until the air is out.

SOURCE: Engine wont stay running

It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.

SOURCE: engine runs great, when i

Make sure thre is no air lock in the system line. So first of all use a clean line to wash off and blow out any dirt in the spray gun.
make sure the engine is having good fuel and power it on to run and warm up . let it run over without any load on it . Now turn the hose on it and power it on slowing, do not stop but keep it running to power spray . The accumulated dirt might come off and make the run smooth after some time.

SOURCE: Water gun will operate however, when you RELEASE

I think the bypass / unloader valve is sticking open but it can be a shuttle piston in the body. Since you did not include a model number I can not pass you a diagram of where the items are located that you need to clean up.
Something you can try in the mean time is to tip the unit up to where the water supply connection is vertical and add some engine oil to the water inlet until you can not add more oil and then connect the water supply BEFORE you move it to the horizontal position. Turn on the water and start the unit knowing that your going to be spraying oil (Use a bucket and spray it on the side so it does not make a huge mess.) As soon as possible after starting the unit fan the trigger on and off rapidly. I am talking about parts of a second here. You trying to force springs and plungers to move and be lubricated. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times before it starts responding.
If this does not work you will end up taking the unit apart, cleaning up springs, housings and seals. After that you will use lots of White Grease (to excess) to lubricate components. Try to only remove one item at a time for cleaning and lubrication.

If you respond with a model number I will look up your pump and provide you with a diagram of just what you need to clean and lubricate. Most of the time cleaning and lubrication is all that is required.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

2002 Free Lander stalls out after starting.


It sounds like you have water in your tank and/or bad gas. There are a few Chemicals that can help to remove it.... Dry Heet is one of them, but there are others. I would try to drain as much as you can first, as it seems to be floating on top of the gas. Then add the fuel cleaner. This should help. I would also replace the fuel filter if you cannot clean it out.

Switch gas Stations....
Thank you for contacting Fixya. Does this help? Let us know.

97 buick regal gs runs fine until warm then stalls and will start for more than a second. sometimes when i give it gas it will rev for another second then stall


When the engine warms up the engine computer goes into closed loop mode and relies primarily on the O2 sensors and the MAF sensor to calculate the correct fuel to air mixture - if one of the O2 sensors is fouled or the MAF sensor is not working properly, this can cause the problem.
Given the age of the car, I would also check the idle air control (IAC) and channels, the EGR valve and the throttle body for carbon buildup.

Engine runs fine and then shuts off when I turn on sprayer


When the gun trigger is pulled, the back-pressure holding back the engine is reduced and the engine accelerates.

Your engine is dying when it should accelerate.

Good news is you have spark and combustion and fuel and the engine runs.

1) Check the exhaust port for build-up of carbon or dirt >>> the hot exhaust gas has to fly out of the exhaust port and if the port is clogged, then the engine stalls

2) Check the amount of fuel getting through to the carburetor >>> pull off the rubber hose entering carburetor from the gas tank >>> does gas run out freely? If gas does not run freely, then take apart your gas filter located just below gas tank

3) Remove air filter and see if problem continues. A dirty air filter can cause engine to stall since combustion requires oxygen coming through the filter. Replace the air filter.

4) Mess with the choke lever and see if you can find a setting where the engine works >>> our old power washer would never run when lever was moved to full throttle >>> we just left the choke lever at half throttle and the engine was happy

5) If above fixes don't fix the problem >>> the final suspect seems to be the carburetor >>> try some gun-out >>> maybe a trip to small-engine repair shop is required.

Engine stalls, then runs after pressing accelerator


If you were low on gas at the time, it could have shifted the fuel in the tank when you turned. The engine can stall for a couple of seconds and then restart as the fuel pump primes again.

I have a 2004 Chevy Silverado. After I fill up the gas tank and start the truck the engine stalls unless I give it gas. After I drive the truck down the road it runs and starts fine.


You have sediment in your tank that gets losened and blocks your fuel line after you gas up. drain tank and clean and change both fuel filters and that should fix your problem
