Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

From reading everything I can find, i.e User's manual & parts manual the only thing you add oil too is the engine. The pressure pump does not have a liquid sump.

You can look at parts here detail D:

So too add oil to the engine you would remove the dip stick from the crank case located on the opposite of the side of the engine as the oil sensor.

I recommend you use 30 WT SAE oil for 3 oil changes then on the 4th oil change use an HD 30 WT oil. The oil drain plug is located in the center of the side of the engine crank case base. On the 5th Oil change switch back to SAE 30 WT oil. Oil brands are not really important. They all have to meet SAE the same standards to carry the label of SAE. (Yes you can use a generic 30 WT SAE oil )
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Testimonial: "Thank you, Kelly! Since there are two plugs that look identical, and the drain plug isn't that obvious, it's really helpful to have your description! "

How do i change the oil in my dewalt 3750 pressure washer 4.0 gpm


It not going to be the oil but is either the check valves or water packing if not both.

The time you need to change the oil is if it is water contaminated.

Hi, My Dewalt 3100 pressure washer pump wash leaking water from a check valve or overflow plug Do you know whats wrong?


The Dewalt 3100 came with 2 different pumps. The Blue Cat pump and the oil free pump that was made by DeWalt.
You may just have a bad Thermal relief Valve on the unit.

Got a Dewalt 3800 PSI Pressure Washer with 4.0 GPM with a Honda GX 390 gas engine. Tipped it up to roll it out to my truck and got a big puddle of water with what looked like Pump oil in the puddle. Can...


Could very well be. Did you check the oil level and condition of oil? If its too full or if its light brown milky, then water has entered crankcase. Pressure washer pumps cannot stand to ever let run dry. Even a little. Also excessive idling will overheat pump if it doesn't have a thermostatic relief valve that allows some more cool water to enter pump.If it doesn't have one add one. Find your PUMP mfg and model number. IF it's pumping good now and no leaks, quick replacing the seals will save big future repairs. www.pressure-washer-parts.com has lots of info on many pump manufactures. Or get some seals from dewalt.
