A loss of pressure on this type of washer is normally caused by failing water seals and check valves in the pump. You will need to replace both of these using a pump rebuild kit that will be available by contacting the manufacturer of your machine. The pump oil used will be 30W non-detergent.

Check the oil level in the engine. If it's low then add some oil. If oil level on the dipstick is between full and low then you better have a mechanic look at it, could failed oil pump.

I have a ford Focus 2006 1600TDC EURO45CAA MJ. The engine oil light goes out after starting then comes back on after a few minuets if the engine is running at 1200 rpm and above it goes out oil level is...

The light works off pressure and it's saying there is not enough pressure when it is in idle but when you bring the rpms up it forces the pump to work faster and causes your pressure to go up thus turning the light off. you probably have an oil pump going bad but a clogged oil filter can do this too. Recommend doing an oil and oil filter change then buy a can of seafoam motor treatment and put all of it into your oil. what it will do is break down any deposits that are built up. It's cheaper to try this than to jump straight to replacing an oil pump. The Seafoam is usually around $10 a can.

What kind of oil do you put into a Excell pressure (exh2425) washer pump? Do you use the same as engine oil (30 w)?

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

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger. I got the oil changed last Saturday and then Sunday night, the car shut down after the oil pressure light came on. The mechanics at two different shops said it was the oil...

The engine is toast. So you shut the engine down yourself, or it shut down on its own? Who changed the oil? Was it the correct oil and filter? It appears something isnt right. Make sure the filter didnt come apart and plug up any oil passage. Oil filter companies will help out if indeed their filter caused a problem. Eng may need to be disassembled and the cause found. engines dont just lose oil pressure for no reason.

Oil pressure

Hi. Your symptoms are a strong indication of major sludge build up in the block region. This type of thick build up will clog up the oil ports, thus, reducing the normal flow of lubricant throughout the engine. This will cause fluctuating oil pressure, as well. Although this issue is a common cause of your symptoms, there are others. The next cause of fluctuating oil pressure will be a failing oil pump. This device can fail mechanically(gear failure). When this occurs, the engine oil will not circulate properly, thus causing the symptoms you are experiencing.

In conclusion, This type of problem will require you to administer a manual oil pressure test. This will confirm the oil pump failure. If the pressure test reveals that, indeed, the engines pressure readings are low, the oil pump will be the culprit. I recommend to administer a engine flush, and change the oil pump and oil pump screen, as well. Now, if the manual pressure test reveals that the pressure is optimal, this will indicate that the presser switch(sending unit) is faulty.

Oil pressure fluctuating

The sensor could be failing to read the lower pressure when the engine RPM slows down. Or the pump could be failing. I would replace the sensor and see if that doesn't correct the problem
