20 Most Recent Homelite Pressure Washer. 2700 psi 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer Questions & Answers

Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

Sounds like a bad unloader valve. Do a search on "pressure washer unloader valve symptoms". When they are faulty there will either be little pressure or it will stop an engine abruptly. The engine will not just die down as it you were turning it off. It would stop cold.

I found a small long spring disconnected from my throttle which made the engine run rough It is easy to reconnect and makes a big difference in engine performance. also, if there is a very dirty air filter-oil/dirt it will not start-replace filter.

Bypass valve may be stuck open bypassing the pressure.

Perhaps you can follow these simple steps to solve your problem:

Start and let the saw run until its run out due to empty gas. Take off the cylinder cover, which sits on top of the saw. Using the needle nose pliers grab the rear end of the fuel line and gently pull it off the carburetor.

Remove the gas filler cap from the tank. Use the needle nose pliers to grab the fuel filter in the bottom of the tank. Pull out the fuel filter and the entire fuel line from the saw. Use the pliers to pinch the fuel line and with your hand pull the fuel filter off the fuel line. Throw both of these away.

Cut off about 10 inches of new fuel line and insert the metal wire into the fuel line. Push the wire and fuel line into the gas tank and through the hole at the bottom until you see the line come out near the carburetor. Don't connect it to the carburetor yet.

Pull the metal wire out of the line and cut off any excess line with the scissors. Pull it back out of the tank slightly and insert the fuel filter into the fuel line. Push them back into the tank.Use the needle nose pliers to grab the rear end of the fuel line and attach it to the carburetor.

I hope these helps. ??

Unlikely as it has a 4 stroke engine. Unless you didn't bother to check the engine sump oil.

Basic maintenance here. Try and turn the crankshaft output with a wrench.

The spark arrestor screen sits inside the muffler on a gas-powered leaf blower. These screens help prevent heated gases from escaping the internal combustion engines.
