Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
Hi And welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
I doubt that it is caused by bad gas.
-It can be caused by a dirty float bowl nut or a restricted orifice in the bottom of the carburetor venturi.
- Also a broken or very worn governor spring can cause it to hunt.
-On a vertical Honda Engine the rubber hoses being cracked can cause this also.
- A worn or missing butterfly spring can cause this.
Is this a Briggs and Stratton engine or a Honda GX160? Also Horizontal or vertical? That information is important and needed to offer your the correct response. Complete Engine Model number is needed for parts reference also.
I will respond as soon as I can once I have that Engine Model Number information.

Are we talking compression in the engine or water pressure here?
The pressure of the water that the motor pumps is controlled by a pressure valve and seals, some of which it sound like you have found. But overall it is the pressure valve which maintains the volume and pressure of delivery of the water.
I had my own done recently and the cost was $150.00to replace the valve and service the unit.
Hope that is what you were asking
