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

    Most of the time but not ALWAYS...30 weight Non detergent SAE is used in most pump but on the smaller engine Hondas as well as the larger pumps such as the dual pumps that run automatic car washes take a special gear oil or hydraulic oil....This is why I asked for the model of the pump. It is not always safe to assume it is 30 weight non detergent. I have repaired too many from people putting 30 weight in and it being the wrong oil.

    Hello Jeff, (I commented/replied earlier, but don't see it?) Anyway... Thank you for that info! I have learned something today. I truly appreciate folks like you that share their knowledge, and will offer correction when deemed necessary. And I, always welcome correction if needed. I own multiple washers both electric and gas, hot and cold, 1800 psi / 1.5 gpm to 5000 psi / 5 gpm and I add Non detergent as instructed to all of them. Once again, thanks for the clarification.

What oil viscosity and how much on my simpson pressure washer msv 3024


Here's a link to your Simpson manual:
http://simpsoncleaning.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/manuals/megashot/MSV3024-I-pwmanual-7107460.pdf
No oil is required for the pump.

10W-30 is normally specified for a Honda GCV160-GCV190 engine. You drain the oil by removing the oil cap/dipstick and then tilting the machine on it's side so that the oil can drain out if the oil fill into a container. (Drain when warm so it flows easily).

The capacity of the engine is ~18.6 oz. Refill amount is ~12.0-13.5 oz. (either engine).

When refilling, add oil and check on dipstick often. To check, press the dipstick into the oil fill, but DO NOT SCREW IT DOWN. Just insert the dipstick in until it contacts the top of the oil fill. The correct reading is between the lower and upper limits marked on the dipstick. (You may have to look carefully to see the marks).

What kind of pump oil


What you have is a generic pump from china more than likely. Its built along the line of a FAIP pump. They arent supposed to have the oil changed in them at all. Most are sealed pumps but may have a plastic plug in it. If you must replace the oil then I would suggest Pressure washer parts catalog quick links Pressure Washers High Pressure... and get this item 4.5 OZ. AR64545 OIL FOR AXIAL PUMPS. It is recommended for pumps built similarly but not for your specific pump. But it should work. Good luck. W

I hve a simpson aquapulse every time I do washing pu comes up can sme 1 plz tell me wat it means thx


PU code is the drain pump/\, This code can mean a bad pump, but most often there is some kind of restriction or blockage in the drain lines from the pump to the drain. Check for clogs/restrictions and clean them out and try again.

Honda gcv 190


If it begins to catch then you definitely have ignition. Try replacing the plug with same type. If same result, the main jet in carburetor is clogged or the needle valve is stuck and not allowing fuel to enter into motor.

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.

d72f00f.jpg

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.
