SOURCE: Karcher pressure washer with Honda GC160 engine only runs on chok

You need to remove the carb bowl, then with a small flat screwdriver remove the jet. ( on the side, at the bottom of stem.) take a small wire or toothpick and clean the gunk out of the jet, reassemble and open fuel valve, start, and pat yourself on your back.

SOURCE: What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power

The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.

SOURCE: engine manual for the Porter Cable pcv 2250 pressure washer

If you need an engine manual, then look up the manual on the engine manufacturer's web site. eg Briggs & Stratton, Honda, Techumseh. Porter Cable manual would just have cart and pump info.

Black max 3000 honda pressure washer won't start


You need two things for the engine to start, spark and fuel. Pull the plug, hold it close to the engine and pull the starter cord- check for spark. If there is spark (most likely there wil be spark), then it is a fuel problem. Try a little startiing fluid into the breather and see if that gets it to start. If that works, then the problem is in the carbureator - it probably needs to be rebuilt if the engine has been sitting for a while.

I can not pull the string to start the engine of power washer


Try removing the spark plug then pulling the cord! If the cord pulls then you cycle the engine a couple of time to see if fuel is coming out of the spark plug hole! If no fuel present replace spark plug and try starting the engine. always have water running through your washer before you attemp to start!
