What type of oil is needed for a Honda GC160 Power
The type of oil recommended for that engine is SAE 10W-30 and the capacity is 0.61 quarts. This and more can be referenced at the website at the end of this solution. I was able to find the owners manual of your particular engine.

Cleaning head not working good
The only way to get down to the bottom of this is to get yourself the necessary fittings and high pressure gauge so you can read what the line pressure is while the trigger is released and applied.
You have to get down to the source, find out what it is.
Could be a bad pump, bypass valve, debris inside trigger, or spray tip is worn out or is too big for the unit it has been attached too (not enough GPM).

I bought a honda pressure washer power boss 3000.
If you are using a water tank for water supply, remove the water supply line from the pressure washer and connect a water hose from a faucet. Turn the water on, then crank the engine. Pull the trigger of the spray gun until water comes out. When then water starts to spray properly the release the trigger, shut engine down with pressure on the line then reconnect the water supply from the tank to the pressure washer. If this fixes the problem then the problem was "air-locked"! Happens alot with new pressure washers that have never been run. If you need any other help, please email me @ [email protected]

Why did my motor freeze until I let cool water flow through pump for a while
sounds like your pump or motor seized from overheating which makes parts swell / grow in size/expand so they stop working ,,,letting cold water flow through the pump would have cooled the parts and help shrink the parts again .. Overheating can do permanent damage to your machine.. I think it needs to be dismantled and inspected for damage by someone who knows what to look for. not sure if the problem is in the pump or the motor, hope that helped.....pete
