Question about Honda Garden
Need to know what type of oil to use in pressure washer and pump. Do they use the same?
Posted by Anonymous on
The motor 30wt oil or 10- 30wt, the pump takes pump oil or 30wt
non-detergent, so the answer is no they don't take the same

They sell 'pump oil' I use the PRO JET brand universal pump oil. It can be hard to find. I get it from a local chain saw shop that sells pressure washers.

any anti foaming oil ,you can use multi grade but it goes milky with minute air bubbles and gives the appearance of getting water in.most manufacturers recommend anti-foaming oil

SOURCE: pressure washer not working
OK here is the solution. There are six plastic vaules inside the pump if you have any mechanical skills you can fix this.
These plastic valves melt when you leave your pressure washer running for a short period when you are not pressure washing. once this happens the pump becomes cloged and does not function. I spent alot of time and research on finding the parts for replacement. I called the main company of this washer pump and here is the toll free number
800-999-2245 and the web sight www.pressureparts.com but to save time just call and talk to the service tech tell him you model number and he will give you the part number.
I only paid $13.75 plus shipping around $5.50 I do not work or have any intrest in this comapny but I tell you after all the frustration and run around I had trying to fix this Home depot power washer I deesided to help eveyone else out
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions

Sounds like you may need to remove the valves to check for any dirt etc. Is the machine juddering when on pressure. If so then it will be the valves that just want removing and cleaning

You should use what the pump manufacturer recommends. Typically a 30wt non-detergent (non foaming) oil. Do not over fill. If there is a sight glass half way is normal. Or if it has a dip stick follow the mark there.
