Question about Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000

1 Answer

My BE Honda 5.0 2900 psi pressure washer has oil in air filter. I believe it is because my buddy left it tilted to the side in th ecar when he borrowed it. How can I fix it? It is probably low on oil as now due to this. How much oil does it take? As there is no dip stick to check the level, Do I need to empty it all out and refill it

Hi there ibharti sounds like gx 160 honda ohv engine

replace the air filter if it has been wet with oil, , remove the float bowl and check for oil in the carb, blow the jets out, top up the oil to the point on the oil filler so that it just spills over when the threads start for the screw in cap ( from memory units only hold 600 or 700 mil of oil
use a 10w/40 or 20w/50 ) as honda have a problem with 30 wheight oil in respect to oil level shutdown sensors ( oil thins out too much ) and switch float does not float

if all is good in carby , remove plug and check oil has not got into combustion chamber
blow out with air if need to , refit plug , reassemble

let er rip , with water connected to pump of course or seals will burn from dry run

note unit may blow blue white smoke for a little while clearing itself , then settle back

in the mean time here is web site for parts if need

go to honda brand ,

I have a honda pressure with a honda 160 motor.ran great yesterday but today will not stay running and very hard too pull almost pulled my arm off from back pressure.replaced plug checked oil also checked...


did you forget to shut off the fuel before moving your pressure washer? It sounds like the engine is flooded. Honda GX engines are famous for flooding with the fuel valve left on when moving. Or did you store it in a tilted position? Take the spark plug back out and pull the pull rope a few times...you should see the gas that flooded ejected from the plug hole. Once you feel you got all the gas out, replace the plug. You may want to check your oil and make sure it isn't full of gas now also. If it is good, or you have changed your oil then start it up....It should not have the resistance anymore and should start just fine. Good luck

Clean it up real well and try again. Most likely the oil is from the motor being put in a position that allows the oil to run into spots that it is not supposed to be in.

I get engine oil to come from the air filter when I tilt the washer more than 90 degrees, this happened while removing the pump unit itself, other wise it works fine, is this normal? should I be worried?


You shouldn't ever tip an engine towards it air filter, when you get oil in the filter, it is usually accompanied with other problems. At least make sure the air filter is cleaned or replaced. I also recommend you remove and clean the carburetor with carb cleaner from your local parts store.

My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to...


I had a similar problem. Turns out I had left the hose disconnected and some sort of wasp built a paper type nest inside the washer tube that the hose connects to. I had to take the pump off and take apart and then cleaned it out with a screw driver. Not too easy to do but finally got it clean. Same thing happened with the hose.

So, if you haven't used it for awhile, check that there is no blockage in the hose or pump tubes. You might be able to blow it out with an air compressor.

How many ounces or quarts of oil do you put in the engine and what kind when changing the oil?


Power washer needs oil 2 places.

d72f00f.jpg

The pump head has a plastic window on side of pump. Oil should fill to middle of that window. Pump should have 20 or 30 weight NON detergent oil. SAE20 SAE 30 I believe. Auto parts store will know which is NON detergent.

The engine oil is ordinary 10W30. We used to change oil after each painting season by tilting engine to the side. Do not turn engine on it's side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

I don't remember exactly how many quarts we put back. Maybe 2? Fill up reservoir until oil is about half-way up dip stick.

Pressure washer with 5hp Honda will ONLY run with choke on


It sounds like it has been tipped or too much oil has been put in. This would explain the oil in the air filter. First check the oil level. Then you need to clean the oil out of the carburetor. It is dirty or plugged and that is why it only runs when choked. You can try a spray-in carb cleaner but the best thing is to remove it (if you are handy enough) and soak it in varsol for 24 hours. Good luck

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

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 :)
