What kind of oil do - cc5c3f6.jpg
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

You dont EVER wanna.turn an engine upside down or on its side etc...keep engine in proper position.and use what the maunfactuer put in, called a.drain plug! There is a reason why engineers develope these methods. If you.flip,turn an engine over you risk damaging the engine by oil seeping through the crankcase etc, do it right,remove the drain plug and let it.drain until a there is no more oil coming from the plug. Replace drain plug and replenish oil. Do it that way and you wont have to worry about cleaning the carb, believe me you DONT want oil in the carb!!! Disregard solution number one besides the oil to be used thats correct

What kind of pump oil for simpson gcv190

I need to know the model of the pump you have. You are giving us the model of the engine which is a Honda GCV190. Can you tell me the model on the pump itself. It is more than likely an AR pump but I need to know . It is more than likely going to take 30 weight non detergent but some pumps take specific oil. You can also call Barens at Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... They can hook you up with the correct oil for your pump. Good luckOADXAV

We think oil for the engine of our Devap 2600 PSI 50 Gas-Powered Pressure Washer #DVH2600, Honda 5.0 EXH2425 was put in the wrong spot... in the unlabeled orange-cap opening, not the small grey...

To evacuated the oil from what I believe is the gas cap area, you are going to need some type of a siphon pump to remove the oil. A total engine tear down might be needed depending on where all the oil is. Remove the spark plug, and turn the engine over, if you are getting oil coming out the spark plug hole, then you are going to have to either tear down the engine, or leave the engine sitting in a way that you can drain all of the oil out of the system.If no oil comes out of the spark plug hole, then you should be good to go once you siphon out all the oil

It sounds like the unloader on your pump is going bad but it is hard to say if it is that or the valves in the pump. The only issue with this machine is that parts are no longer available for this pump. The only option I really have for you is to replace the pump with a new one, it is a very simple process and only takes about 15 minutes to complete.

See this link for information on the pump that would fit your machine

The only thing else you might need is a coupler to have the hose adapt onto this pump

See this link for the coupler

How many ounces or quarts of oil do you put in the engine and what kind when changing the oil?

Power washer needs oil 2 places.


The pump head has a plastic window on side of pump. Oil should fill to middle of that window. Pump should have 20 or 30 weight NON detergent oil. SAE20 SAE 30 I believe. Auto parts store will know which is NON detergent.

The engine oil is ordinary 10W30. We used to change oil after each painting season by tilting engine to the side. Do not turn engine on it's side or upside down or oil will run into carburetor.

I don't remember exactly how many quarts we put back. Maybe 2? Fill up reservoir until oil is about half-way up dip stick.

Excell pressure washers used a series of numbers such as yours. I believe that that number will be for pump or pressure washer as a whole unit. Check Excell web site for a match. If you are looking for the engine model number check the fan shroud or valve cover or tag on engine itself. Good luck
