Question about Briggs Stratton 020273 Elite Series Portable Gas Pressure Washer

1 Answer

The 6.5 hp Briggs & Stratton engine that powers my 2550 elite pressure washer is blowing oil out the exhaust and air filter while it is running. Do you think this is a gasket problem or a piston ring problem?

It most likely is a ring problem as the gasket only keeps the combustion gases in and would leak around the head as a loud noise. Of course it could be the valves, but I doubt it as most of these engines are splash fed instead of pressure, so the only explanation is the compression ring is letting oil blow past.

I have a Troy Bilt 2550 psi Power Washer with a Briggs and Stratton 675 Series, 190cc engine. Could you tell me what kind of oil I should use.


Best oil for small engine for most moderate climates is 30wt non-detergent. The pump can use mineral oil (air compressor oil ) sold at most auto stores and lumber outlets.

The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going to have to tear down the engine.

Hope this helps!

Need to know where oil drain plug is on 6.75 hp Briggs & Stratton engine on 2550 psi troy bilt pressure washer!!


I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.
