Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Open Question

Troy Bilt 4.5 HP, 2.2 \r\nUsed to be a steady idle.....now it putters and on and off. Pressure is about the same as always, but then it goes steady idle for about last 15 seconds before it runs out of fuel. I changed from regular unleaded to premium...and still the same. I have not looked into the wand or o-rings at that end. I just want it smooth and not erraticly noisy..like it struggling for dear life. :o)

    Hi wmrios, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Is this on a pressure washer? If it is can you advise any other info on machine model number or engine model number?

SOURCE: pressure washer not working

sketchy info here....

Remove the hose and gun to see if water is flowing....
if it is that means there is no blockage in the hose or gun. When its connected if it runs at the same rate as without the hose and you have set it into pressure clean mode, then the pressure valve and seal have collapsed. Estimated repair cost is $200 and about $100 of that is labor. It is not a DIY unless you know your way around and have the right tools. Having it repaired professionally gives you 3 months warranty as well. Do it yourself and you could end up losing some of the small screws and other nylon components that tend to drop out and get lost when you open it up!

SOURCE: troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer

I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

SOURCE: Need to know where oil

I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

How can I get my snow blower to idle in a steady fashion?


Tune up and carb adjustment. There are two screws on your carb which control the low end(idle) and the high end (throwing power) Play with those with very small turns to adjust.

My Troy bilt squall 2100 snowblower does not idle steady. It races and slows while idling.


It sounds like the carb needs cleaning and readjusting, or the fuel filter is clogged. Good-Day! Remove and clean out carb, it may be dirty inside.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

What kind of oil goes in crankcase


Rule of thumb for lawn and garden equipment ...

If it is 2 cycle - gas and oil are mixed - 50 to 1 mix. Some two cycle engines require more oil ... up to 32 to one.

It if is 4 cycle - has a fuel tank and a crank case - 30 weight oil SJ or better service rating.

If you want to become an expert on oil ... go here: http://www.bsehome.net/pdf/OIL_S_EG.PDF

And a final word ... it is always good to refer to the manufacturer recommendations when selecting lubricants. Troy Bilt (no longer manufactured by the Troy Bilt Company in Troy New York) uses a number of different engines on their procducts.
