More than likely you have water leaking into your oil, making the oil float on the top and out of the vent. Eventually you'll only have water, and no oil. Drain oil and replace. You will probably have to replace the seals between pump and crankcase. Only remove front of pump,(brass part) if you catch it in time the bearings in the rear portion won't go out. Do it now before the water wears the pump out. You can get parts for most pumps at www.pressure-washer-parts.com. Or go to www.cometpumps.com Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How full and with what oil to fill pump vent.

Any pressure washer pump should be no more than half full. The reason is if you fill it completely up when the piston strokes it will blow the seals out of the pump. Usually there is a sight gage on the side of the pump. I will look your model up and see what I can find as far as quantity for the pump. I won't be too long just read the 2nd response and please do not rate this one. I will get back to you ASAP.

What type of oil does remington 3.5 electric saw uses?


You need “Bar and Chain Oil”, available at hardware stores and home centers. It is SAE 30 (30 weight non-detergent oil) with additives to make it adhere to your bar and chain.
An excerpt from a Remington manual follows (edited).
FILLING OIL TANK

1. Remove oil cap.
2. Fill oil tank with SAE 30 motor oil if the temperature is between 30 & 75°F.
• Colder use SAE 10 oil.
• Warmer use SAE 40 oil.
3. Replace oil cap at once. Tighten oil cap firmly for a good seal. This will avoid oil seepage from tank.
4. Wipe off excess oil.
• It is normal for oil to seep when saw is not in use.
• Empty oil tank after each use to prevent seepage.

Some manuals go from page 6 to page 14. This one is very good.
