Bad gas can cause the engine to surge, but also the carb bowl and jets need cleaning. I usually drain the gas, remove the bowl, wipe inside the bowl , and then use a carb cleaner to spray the float and jet/s. The float may be hanging up. It would be best just remove the gas and clean the bowl area and float/jets. I wouldn't think replacing the carb. is the problem.

Honda pressure washer 5hp will only run with the choke on. Was running fine for about 1 hour


The problems you describe are usually indicative of a blockage in the fuel system somewhere in the carburator or a damaged gasket that's letting in too much air. With the choke on, the vacuum in the carb goes way up and forces more gas through. Remove the carb and check the gaskets and insulator if it has one. Then check the float bowl for debris and blow out all the passages in the carb.

I have a honda 5hp pressure washer.I cleaned the carb and now when starts the gas fills the block!


The float needle is not closing all the way and fuel keeps leaking in to the carburetor. Replace the needle and make sure the float is not damaged and that the float pin is clean.

If it's been sitting for 3 years most likely the carb is gummed up. If it's getting spark, you could try a small shot of starting fluid into the carb. If it runs on this you know it's a fuel problem. Best bet would get all the MOTOR data, and buy a carb kit from you local lawn and garden equipment parts supplier. . Remove carburator and clean and install kit. Use sta-bil when you put it away next time, but even that only works about a year or so.
