Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 2550 Psigaspressure Washer
Had it stored for winter in garage, pulled it out yesterday to use and engine started for about 1 sec then quit and noticed it was harder to pull over, discovered if I squeeze the trigger to release water pressure the engine pulls over easily and starts but then stalls from the pressure build up and if I keep the trigger squeezed it will pressure wash for about 2 seconds then quits putting out any water from the wand and engine starts to bog down???

THIS POWER WASHERS ARE TRICKY, TO OPERATED YOU NEED TO OPEN THE WATER FAUCET CONECTED BY A HOSE TO THE POWER WASHER , OPEN THE TRIGGER AND THEN START THE POWER WASHER, OTHER WISE YOU WILL RUIN THE POWER WASHER PUMP.

Ican see im going to have to wright this whole thing again . This sight is not good for people like me who know the answers . Something always pops up and loose my well thought massage . like the one i just wrote to you . Briggs olny makes the engine on your mechine you have 3 to 4 differant other companys that make all of the other parts this makes it diffelculy for anybody to get parts for the mechine . But there can olny be two things wrong with this mechine . The first is you have a problem with the valves on the pump body . Do you see brass caps on the valve body remove them one at a time . Check the valve you can remove them with a small pair of niddle noise pilliers look at the plastic cages around the valves they tend to break and jam the valve seats it olny takes one to cause this condution you describe . The other thing it could be is the unloader valve is stuck . This is the part under the pressure control knob and you will need to remove it . What it dose is allow the presserized water to recurlicate back through the pump body when the trigger is not open . This could also cause this condution . Most of the time it can be freed up with some WD40 and most are not servicable as a unit and lots of luck trying to find one .But the chances are good you can free it . In the winter time you should put antifreeze in the mechine disconnect the plug wire pull the cord until it comes out the other side this will protect it from the water freezeing and expanding and damageing parts aswell as corroition . Well good luck from what you descriped the valves but you should also turn that pressure knob in and out on a regular baicis to keep it free

I think that you are right on with your assessment of the problem...something has come apart inside the wand and it is blocking the water flow under high pressure or it will not open under high pressure...I would replace the wand.
