Engine rpm serges sometimes and powernosle pressure drop some times


Gas engine surging and losing power sounds like dirty carb to me.
Pressure washers are often used and then sit for months before being used again. This often creates blockage in carb passages. If you have or install a fuel cutoff valve you can reduce this problem. When you are done pressure washing, turn off the fuel valve and continue spraying water until the carb empties ( the engine will sputter and go out) Next time you want to wash turn on the valve and you should be good to go.

I cannot get my honda 2500psi pressure washer to start at all i have changed spark plug and do have spark it has good gas in it and plenty of oil but will not start?


Three things needed for engine to run. Fresh fuel, good spark and good compression. I am assuming that water supply is disconnected for now and that you feel good resistance when you pull the rope indicating that there is compession. For now remove/unplug the low oil alert wire (if your model has one). Use carburator cleaner as fuel for now by spraying fuel directly into carb with air filter removed and choke off (do not flood just spray a little then little more if needed, the engine will only begin to run then stop unless you contine to spray fuel). If the engine does not respond most likely timing belt or plastic cam is cause. GCV series honda engines use timing belt with plastic cam gear. Gx series use metal gear. If the engine responds clean carb. Good luck

My Husky pressure washer 2600 psi powered by a gcv 160 Honda. Engine starts no pressure other then from water source and soap is not being dispensed


It sounds like the (RMW 2.2 G24) pump has gone out. Mine had this problem after about 6 hours of use. I was able to order a new pump for around $160.00, and then installed it myself. Go figure it was just out of warranty. I think my next pressure washer will be one with a professional pump as I was told the one on my husky is only rated for about 40 hours of use.

You can eliminate the motor by unbolting the pump from it and then if it will start the problem is with the pump or the unloading valve.If it does not start with the pump removed then you check for spark and get the carb cleaned or have a kit put in it.If it does start then check to see if the pump turns freely,if so disassemble the unloader valve and clean and lube it so that the pump and motor can relieve the pressure it needs to when the trigger is not engaged,if the pump can't be easily turned by hand then then pump needs to come apart,dealership should do this.

My almost new Honda GCV 160 engine will not start.


Hi , I think you need someone to remind you these engins are not made by god and they work by obeying three simple rules ,
1.Spark , Can you see a very good blue spark
2.compression,,can you feel strong compression ,
3.fuel , is the right amount of fuel getting in , is the air mixture good ,

Now try these things

Find the manual and PROPPER set the gap in the spark plug ,
clean and check the air filter ,
remove all fuel and replace with brand new,
check the fuel filter,even in the tank tap?
undo the screw at the carb bowl , can you see petrol leaking ,

If everything checks out then try this to get it started,,

spray "easystart" in the carb , bypassing the air filter ,
if it wants to start but cant for long then its a carb problem
check float hight , float needle,jets and pins ,too much air getting in

find someone thats good on motorbikes , They like me know all the tricks to get things to start ,

It won't stay running


You need to either clean the carb really good (take it apart) or rebuild it or both. Sounds like your needle is gummed up and not letting fuel through.
