Engine dies after pressure builds

Pacific hydrostar 65078 - new, used once. engine starts fine but as soon as pressure starts to build in pump (when I pull trigger in wand), it kills the engine. after this it will not restart and i feel a lot of resistance in the pull cord. If I relieve pressure and unhook the hose, it will pull easy but still won't restart until it cools down.

You have to have a clogged hose gun. Try blowing it out with air. Also, Harbor Freight sells the Pacific-Hydrostar and you can buy a 2 year full warranty for around $70 bucks. A small price to pay if you use your powerwasher on a frequent basis. If anything goes wrong, regardless of what the cause, they simply replace the washer.Hope this helps.

I need to change the pump on my pacific hydrostar 2800


That cannot be done over the internet, no matter what ISP you have.

Further, you need to be more-specific about exactly what you have.

Pacific Hydrostar makes both sump pumps and pressure washers with 2800 ratings (gallons per hour and PSI, respectively). So you should use the model number of your device, not what the large print on its decals say, when requesting help with them.

Have to spray starter fluid in the intake to get to start. once started runs fine, why?


This sounds like a weak fuelpump, and take a while to build up pressure, the starting fluid get the engine running until the pump builds up pressure, i would have the fuel pressure tested and i think you will find that its bad. good day.

Pacific Hydrostar 95618. pump oil?


37d1355.jpg

Pacific Hydrostar is another pacific rim product that has no website, and no manuals online, and nobody to contact, and no parts available. These machines must be made for the throw-away user.

Pump oil comes about half way up inside pump housing > pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent oil SAE20 SAE 30
Engine oil comes half way up dip stick > engine oil 10W30

Do not turn power washer on its side or upside down when draining oil, or engine oil will go into carburetor and machine will not start

Started pressure washer first time this year. Engine started on first pull. turned off choke, a small amount of mist came out nozzle at the beginning. It looked like it was trying to build pressure. You...


The bypass valve in the pump has stuck. Very common problem.

The valve shuts off additional water input once the pressure builds up.

The O rings in the valve deteriorate and stick in the position so new water can't get to the pump.

Rebuild the valve with new O rings and it will be good as new. Clean the bore of the valve when you have it apart.
