I had the same problem last week. Pulled out the air filter to find it was saturated with oil. Took the filter out and it started like a charm. replaced the filter and now its fine

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 :)

a good spark is one that you can barely see.A tiny blue spark is known to be a hot spark.bright yellow or white is a cold spark and this is not good try a new plug it should be a ngk bpr6es.give this a try and let me know.also do you feel any compression while your pull starting it?

Replacing the pump

There are only 3 things necessary for ignition.
1. fuel
2. air
3. spark

Use a starting fluid spray directly into air filter.
if engine starts but doesn't run the problem is fuel'

remove the carburetor float bowl and then use a screwdriver to remove the jet locking nut in the tube the bowl nut attaches.
Use a small wire to remove the jet locking nut after it is loose. Then use the wire to remove the jet tube. Tube has several jet ports that should also be cleaned. reassemble. Allow carburetor bowl to refill then crank at full choke position. If the engine starts buy some techron fuel additive from an auto parts store and add 2-4 ounces to the gas for the next 2 tanks. this will completely clean the fuel system.

If engine doesn't start check for spark either using a spark tester or removing the spark plug and holding plug against the engine frame and pulling starter rope if spark is present replace the spark plug and try to restart the engine.

If these steps don't work I would replace the carburetor.

I have a Briggs and Stratton 6.5 Quantum Powerwasher. I cannot get it started. I think I am missing a step. Could anyone help me?

This is a 6.5 hp Quantum engine operators manual for this engine number 126T02-0209-B1 : (5.68 mb)
Parts list: (3.01 mb)

Engine start procedures begin on page 7 of the operator's manual. There is one very important step and that is to turn ON the fuel selector (if equipped).

This engine came in 3 different types.
Primber bulb
Manual choke
and Ready Start (auto choke)

If your still haing problems you can contact Briggs and Stratton at 1-800-233-3723. The will walk you through the start process. The will ask you for your engine number. An example of an engine number is: 126T02-0209-B1 They will need the complete number that is usually stamped on the air shroud just above the spark plug wire.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I cannot get my honda 2500psi pressure washer to start at all i have changed spark plug and do have spark it has good gas in it and plenty of oil but will not start?

Three things needed for engine to run. Fresh fuel, good spark and good compression. I am assuming that water supply is disconnected for now and that you feel good resistance when you pull the rope indicating that there is compession. For now remove/unplug the low oil alert wire (if your model has one). Use carburator cleaner as fuel for now by spraying fuel directly into carb with air filter removed and choke off (do not flood just spray a little then little more if needed, the engine will only begin to run then stop unless you contine to spray fuel). If the engine does not respond most likely timing belt or plastic cam is cause. GCV series honda engines use timing belt with plastic cam gear. Gx series use metal gear. If the engine responds clean carb. Good luck

Engine on powerwasher starts but quits running after approx 10 seconds. Engine oil changed, oil is full & tried choke in various positions. Also has fresh fuel in tank. What else can I do

try cleaning the carb that ethanol plays havoc on these small engines if it is not a premix oil and gas unit add a little 2 cycle engine oil to the gas will keep the carbon builup to a minimum not to much it will gunk up your spark plug take the carb apart and clean it with carb cleaner or deisellet dry check your spark plug make sure it is clean and ok that is where I would start

Was running fine till ran out of gas ........fill tank up ...try to restart it .......wont start replaced plug ........still no go .

Recurring issues with honda engine no start. Engine was thought to be out of gas however engine was actually shut down by oil alert. Check/change oil to reset, or unplug wire from oil alert and check engine. Vacuum in fuel system due to faulty fuel cap. Loosen cap to allow air in tank. Water in fuel. Water will condense out of the fuel in fuel container and will be introduced into tank. Water is heavier than fuel and will enter carb bowl. Check engine fuel tank with flashlight for signs of water, remove fuel bowl (shut off fuel) and clean. Spark plug is rarely issue, however could be wet from too much choke. Good luck
