Honda gc160 engine on 2500 psi washer, no spark?

I have been using my washer on a weekly bases, but it only has 10-12 hrs. on it. I used it today for about 5 min. and then it stopped running. I checked oil it was ok, checked the gas tank and there was 1/4-1/3 of a tank, pulled the plug to check for spark and no spark. Can you give some troubleshooting help. THANKS

What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power Washer? Honda 2500 PSI x 2.3 GPM.


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.

Pressure washer with Honda Engine GC160 only run with choke fully closed.


The carb is clogged. It needs to be cleaned, or replace. Keep in mind some of the carb passageways are as small as a human hair so they are difficult to clean which is why I mention replacing. You can try using carb cleaner etc in the gas, but I don't think it will work if you need the choke that much.

I had the same problem 3 years old, maybe used 10 times - removed the air filter and the washer started fine. The air filter looked fine - I have not tried to replace it or figure out the root cause. I was just happy to get it running again :)
