I have a honda gx 160 5.5 pressure washer. It's getting harder and harder to start.And if I do start it,it will work for a little bit and than shut down! Is it just time to get a new one? I had it for 5 years but got it used.

Ensure that the oil level is at the very top of filler hole this unit has a oil alert which can trigger the ignition coil to shut down before reaches an unsafe level if it continues remove the yellow wire from sensor if it runs well afterwards replacement of oil alert sensor is required, this switch can also stick from old oil residue or sludge.

I have a honda gx 390 that kicks back when i pull the rope to start


The ignition timing may be too advanced . Some times if the pull start rope is not pulled hard enough it will kick back, The ignition fires just before top dead center , if not pulled hard enough it will kick back.

I have a honda pressure with a honda 160 motor.ran great yesterday but today will not stay running and very hard too pull almost pulled my arm off from back pressure.replaced plug checked oil also checked...


did you forget to shut off the fuel before moving your pressure washer? It sounds like the engine is flooded. Honda GX engines are famous for flooding with the fuel valve left on when moving. Or did you store it in a tilted position? Take the spark plug back out and pull the pull rope a few times...you should see the gas that flooded ejected from the plug hole. Once you feel you got all the gas out, replace the plug. You may want to check your oil and make sure it isn't full of gas now also. If it is good, or you have changed your oil then start it up....It should not have the resistance anymore and should start just fine. Good luck

I need to buy a pressure washer for residential/commercial work


Were I to pick from one of those three, I would pick the Landa. The most reliable pumps are Hotsy and since Karcher bought Landa and Hotsy, those three brands now have Hotsy pumps, though it doesn't say it on the machines.

I believe it is either one but if you are not sure, stick a screw driver in an see if it comes out with oil on it. Does one not have an oil level stick attached to the cap?
