Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
Pressure washer oil
I took this picture of my power washer so it's easy to explain the oil.
The oil is different for engine and pump.
The pump oil is 20 or 30 weight non-detergent. SAE20 or SAE30 motor oil. The level of the oil comes up about half way. There is a plastic viewport on side of pump ... oil comes up half way on viewport.
The engine oil is 10W30 motor oil. It comes up about half way or a bit more on dipstick.
To remove oil from pressure washer, do not turn engine on it's side or turn engine upside down or motor oil will run into the carburetor. You might wonder how I know that. Afterward, the carburetor needs to be cleaned out.
To remove oil, you can tip engine to the side but not so much that oil runs up into top part ... to remove the rest of the oil, you can use a plastic hose
