There is no way that a 4.5 hp engine can create 4500 psi. If you are putting the oil into the engine it would just take a 10w30 motor oil, if you are putting oil into the pump I would have to know what pump kind of pump you have, if the name isn't on the pump I would need to know the model number of the machine. The oil in the pump shouldn't have any affect with the motor not starting though.

1999 suburban gage oil pressure is 0 when it warms up. rpm drop to 3-4 rpm when oil pressure goes to 0. Sounds good, runs excellent -no noise. Actually it sound better then most new cars. It is so...


I looked at info for 1500--5.7L engine.
6 psi @ 1000 rpms
18 [email protected] rpms
24 psi @ 4000 rpms

Sometimes, you can use analog gage in place of oil pressure sending unit and double check oil pressure that way. If oil pressure is actually low, if high mileage engine, I doubt replacing oil pump will help. I just wanted to add, check oil pressure engine warmed up.

What type of fuel is to be used? oil/gas mixed? pls advise


Check to see whether 4 stroke is written on engine. If this is the case, regular gas can be used.

I bought a troybuilt pressure washer used and i changed the motor oil and ran it maybe 5 minutes. later i checked the oil level again and it shot out the cap and i noticed the pump oil level is also...


if you left it sit for a while & did not turn the fuel tap off,it may have flooded and therefore the oil level would have risen causing the oil to over flow.

always turn the fuel tap off when not using your pressure wahser.

Sputering so i check fuel rail some gas doesnt want to idle occasionally will start and run then looses pressure and stall


Fill the tank to over 1/2 tank and add Chevron Techron fuel system cleaner

Do a fuel pressure test at the fuel rail.

The PSI should be 55-70 psi (or check the sticker under the hood)


Test fuel pump relay.

Check oil level and oil pressure. Low oil pressure,low oil pressure reading can stop the fuel pump from ran. It's a build in safety feature.

If it start and ran better the add only bottle of RED Iso-heat dry rule out water in fuel.


My bet is a weak fuel pump.

Fuel pump with over 110,000 miles will like to fail in a HOT day.


You are on the right track,

What gas and oil do I use on the Honda Excell 2600 pressure washr


That engine requires a separate gas and oil. There is an oil sump with oil level needle and cap on the side of the engine. This is where you fill it with special pressure washer pump oil available from any good outdoor store or place where pressure washers are sold. As for gas, Unleaded or Premium unleaded gas will work fine. Try not to use any fuel with ethanol blends however. Here is a list of oils that will give you an idea what to buy for the oil reservoir: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref%255F%3Dnb%255Fss%255Fgw%26field-keywords%3Dpressure%2520washer%2520pump%2520oil%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=onlinetoolrev-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957

It is possible that the oil pressure switch is not functioning properly or you have a lighter oil in the machine than is recommended.
