Disconnect fuel supply line from carb and verify that you have "Full Line Flow" from the fuel tank to the carb. If not, check line, filter and in-tank screen for restrictions.
Sounds as if the fuel supply is trickling in the carb very slowly and the engine burns it faster than the line can supply.
Hope this helps.

Vehicle will start run for about 10 seconds and stop running set for a few minutes and does the same thing


Could it be the fuel filter is stopped up ?
Changing it would not be that expensive and if you don't do it regularly it won't hurt.

Honda had a problem with the gas cap not venting properly, but commonly it will run for several minutes at a time before stopping. 30 seconds sounds like possible fuel delivery problem like a sticking float or dirty carb jet..especially if you have to run it with the choke on. A bad air filter...very dirty, or oil soaked might do this. Check your oil level. Sitting, oil is a little higher level than when running and these motors will not run if the oil level is too low.

Before starting the engine, the fuel pump should only run for a few seconds when the key is first turned, to pressurize the fuel system. Even though the pump appears to be running, you may either have not enough or too much pressure for the engine to keep running (fuel pump or pressure regulator). I think it may just be a coincidence the engine quit while turning a corner, but the gas in your tank may have been so low it sloshed away from what is likely a very old pump, starving it and causing it to failure.

I have the exact same pressure washer and have had the same issues with it. The cure for me was to simply run the washer with the gas cap loose. For some reason the fuel gets vacuume locked and stops flowing into the carb. The fuller the tank is it seems the shorter the time is between the time it starts and the time it shuts off. Or you might find a way to vent the cap. Hope this helps.

It sounds like the fuel bowl is not filling quickly enough. Turn the fuel tap off. Then take the fuel bowl off the carby. You will see a plastic float. Above the float is a needle (small pin like) that should shut the fuel off & let it run also. Turn the fuel back on,the fuel should be running out quickly. Push the float up and the fuel should stop running. If no fuel is coming out then the needle is stuck. Clean with carby cleaner and push up & dowm a few times to ensure it is working OK. You may need to replace needle. Turn fuel off. Put fuel bowl back on and turn fuel tap on. Test.

Engine runs for a few minutes then stalls...


It sounds like vapor lock or other lack of fuel. Premium gas will cause detonation and "may" have something to do with it. Drain the fuel the best you can and add regular fuel, after a couple minutes the engine should be burning mixed fuel and if the problem goes away you have fixed it, if not you obviously have other issues.
