You mean water in the pump oil ??? or engine oil ???

im suspecting pump oil... you didn\'t seal it properly or you have a crack somewhere in the main housing. rarely is it viable to repair these pumps... if you search a little you can find replacements pretty damn cheap !!!

Have you tried changing the gas, Especially, if it has been in the machine of a while. Also some Honda engines will not start if the oil is low. Also try removing the high pressure hose before you start it? Do not run it very long without water flowing through the pump, though.

My Saturn flooded so I replaced oil and filter, spark plugs also. Did have water in crank case but now it won't start.

Don't forget to change transmission fluid in case water got in through the breather.
Check if there is water in the fuel. Also the ECU may have got wet.

Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer

From your description, it could be rusty water or oil. Depending on the model it could be 30w or 10w30 oil. These pumps are not supposed to need the oil changed, however ,some muppet may have changed the oil and used incorrect oil that has damaged a seal causing water to pressurize the casing and force oil out the breather or it may have been run with no water or it may have just been overfilled.
I would look online to find the correct oil and quantity for your model, check the oil in the casing to see if it is contaminated with water ( the oil will be milky brown if this is the case).
If water is present , the pump will need seals replaced ( assuming it works ok in every other way).
If the oil is clean, drain it out , replace it with the quantity and type recommended by the manufacturer and check the bungs to make sure they are sealing properly.
Good luck!

Oil in coolant no coolant in oil intake gasket replaced 1 year ago

yes thats more than likely if the oil feed to the head is leaking as it has a hight pressure than the water circuit so its only got oil in water ,But check the radiator with a pressure tester in case the oil cooler in the radiator is leaking as this is a more probale cause of the problem

Heaters were not heating up machanic replaced water pump + thermastate and timing belt as radiator wasnt heating up now the water is boiling nut has not oil in it the oil level light is flashing but has no...

I don't understand why the timing belt was replaced for a heater problem. Is the car running rough or missing badly? Have you actually checked the oil or just relying on the oil level light. Check the oil and look for signs of water in the oil. If the oil doesn't show signs of water, refill the radiator with antifreeze and bring the oil level up to the full mark. Run the engine until it gets hot. Turn the engine off and let it cool enough so that you can remove the radiator cap. If the radiator is empty again, there must be leak somewhere. If you can't find a leak then it may be going inside the engine. If that is the case then the engine should be running very rough. Let me know what you find.
