Most likely has nothing to do with oil change. Have someone hold the trigger on handle open to relieve pressure on system/pump , this will make engine turn easier when you pull rope.

Rope pull start is stuck, won't pull out


Check the oil level, if it's very low or burnt then it may have siezed up internally.
It could also be that be that the cylinder is filled with oil or fuel.
if the washer was tipped over the fuel or oil may have migrated in to the piston combustion area.

Honda 160 homelite pressure washer 2700 psi no pressure


Water comes out the nozzle, but low pressure? ( more than when the motor is not running)
I would check the check valves and the unloader.
If the amount of water coming out the nozzle is the same when the motor is running or not running.
Either the key that connects the motor shaft to the pump shaft is sheared, or the pump is trash.
No water comes out the nozzle would indicate a clogged inlet filter or blockage at the gun valve or nozzle.

Motor will not turn over. Checked air filter compartment to find 2 oz. of oil and filter soaked.


Not sure if you mean engine will not turn at all (locked) or engine will not start. The engine may have been on its side causing this condition. Clean carb and filter of excess oil. Remove spark plug and clean cylinder and plug of oil that may have entered causing locked condition. Replace oil lost from crankcase. With spark plug removed and kill swith on off, pull rope to blow out oil and verify that motor will now turn. If it still does not turn could be lock rod to crank or faulty pump. If engine had very little or no oil in crank and was run, suspect locked crank, however if your engine has oil senser, this condition would have prevented engine from starting. If you mean that engine will not start, low oil senser most likely preventing start due to low oil. Good luck

Motorturns over hard with pullstarter on my gx340 pressurewasher


You have a nice setup, lots of power. The honda gx340 has a compression release built into the engine so it should be relatively easy to start. With the pressure pump under load however, it will be very hard to pull the rope. With water connected hold spray gun open so water is running out tip and pull rope to start (for easy start, remove tip from gun) . If it still feels very hard to pull rope while holding gun open, most likely problem with lubrication in pump or engine valves are not adjusted correctly preventing compression release. If you suspect problem, go to store where you purchased the unit or any store that sells gx340 and pull the rope to get a feel of what force is required to start engine and compare to yours. Good luck.

There are 2 different places to add oil to my 3500 Honda engine pressure washer (cold). Do I use SAE 30 for the motor oil and gear oil for the other oil?


you can use sae 30 in the motor and hydraulic oil or gear oil in the pump.
just note that there may be two oil filler holes on the motor.

I tried to start the pressure washer by lulling the cord, there was sharp popping noise, and the engine would not crank to start. It is a Honda K. washer. What went wrong? Pls advise, thanks.


Make sure your oil level is correct and not overfull. If ok, pull the sparkplug out. Then, pull the starter rope to see if the engine spins freely. If it does, pull it 4-5 more times to clear the cylinder of oil or gas. Put the plug back in and try it again.
However, if the rope fails to pull freely, you either have a locked engine or pump. You will have to seperate the pump from the engine to determine which is locked up.

Power washer stalls after spraying


Your pressure relief valve may not be working. If that happens when you shut off your spray gun, then pump is dead heading, stopping the motor. If this is the case it stops dead, not coasting. Either replace the pressure adjusting relief valve or remove it, and disassemble it and clean it.

Pressure Washer Pump and Engine Stops Suddenly


The pump might be binding against the motor, causing the pump to overheat and temporarilly "seize up" and shut the engine off.
After cooling down for a brief period (5~10 mins) the engine can usually be re-started, but the overheating problem will keep coming back.

This happens when the pump either wasn't seated against the engine properly during it's initial instalation, or the pump housing wasn't machined properly and the PTO shaft is trying to drive the pump at a slight angle = excessive friction = overheating.

Try this:
1) Loosen the bolts that mount the pump to the engine just enough so that the pump can be wiggled slightly.
2) With the engine power switch in the "OFF" position, slowly pull the recoil starter rope so that the engine / pump completes about two revolutions. This helps to align the pump surface with the engine.
3) Lightly snug the pump mounting bolts in a criss-cross pattern, then slowly pull the recoil starter rope again to ensure that the pump isn't binding.
4) Finish tightening the pump mounting bolts in the criss-cross pattern (approx. 21 foot pounds torque).

The entire process should take you roughly about 10 mins from start to finish.

If this doesn't remedy your problem, then try running the engine for 20 mins with the pump COMPLETELY removed so as to isolate the components.
