Hooked it up with water started engine and no

Stored in heated garage all winter and when I hooked it up with water started engine and no water pressure. Pulled off high pressure hose and still no water came out. Did notice a pasty sludge on the low pressure side. Engine runs well, water pressure is good. What is the problem?

Your water system is plugged with "gunk"
You will need to slush it out with water and air pressure if you can until it runs clear

How do I winterize Gas high pressure washer.

Pump will freeze in cold weather from water left in sump. Get it running and instead of hooking it up to a water hose, use a short length to take a gallon of so of antifreeze.

Engine working fine, but water not coming out

Couple of things, is the water supply good? if that's a yes, then check to see if there is a way to engage / disengage the pump, some models offer that, if engaged and good water supply, then it has to be your pump

Engine runs but only a steam of water comes out of gun with trigger on. washer is stored in a heated garage in winter.

you need to remove and clean the unloader valve. The way this valve works is when you release the trigger the pressure is diverted around the pump through the inlet side so you don't cause damage to the pump. This valve is usually located next to the discharge pipe on the pump where your pressure hose hooks up to. Remove and clean. Be sure to clean port that you remove the valve from also. Use carburetor cleaner. Lubricate the valve with a light coat of lithium grease. This should cure the problem. If not let me know.

Check the inlet strainer where the water supply hose is attached,this is located just inside the coupling where you hook up the water hose.

Ex-Cell VR2500 Builds Pressure but Won't Spray

I have a similar problem and diagnosed it to be a problem with the gun. I spoke to a technician that services this pressure washer and he walked me through all the diagnostic steps. The pump is working because there is pressure being built up and the gun sort of works because you can get water out before the washer is started. The technician said that the mechanism inside the gun is either clogged or broken. I am going to Home Depot or Lowes to purchase a new gun and will try it tonight. Guns are only about $30-40. He said generic is fine as long as the thread matches and PSI is in range. Good luck!
