How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Why would the engine only run while the choke is on or with repeated manual priming? An engine that requires the choking (partial or full) after initial engine warm up is an indication that the engine fuel air mixture system is out of adjustment.
The number one cause of low or no pressure when using a pressure washer is a blocked or worn nozzle. Blocked nozzles will prevent water from escaping, while a worn nozzle will allow too much water to pass through, causing the pressure to drop.
There could be small leaks, holes, or tears in your garden hose or high-pressure hose that are causing your pressure washer to lose pressure when you pull the trigger. If you find leaks, plug the holes or replace the hose, which should solve your pressure issues.
The first thing that you should do is to check the air filter for clogs caused by debris or dirt. Clean out any clogs that you find and the erratic revving may stop. The vented fuel cap may have also become clogged. Clean it too in order to enable air to flow freely into the engine.
It will not damage the engine at all. All that will happen is that it will run richer, thus using more fuel. If you did it for thousands of miles you`d probably end up with more deposits in the engine/exhaust, but even that is easy to sort.
If your bike is only running with the choke on, it`s probably because it`s running too lean. This can be caused by a few different things: All internal combustion engines need three things to run: fuel, air, and spark. If any of these are missing or not working properly, the engine won`t run.
Once the engine is in use, and naturally warms up, the choke valve can be closed, to reduce additional fuel being used.
Why Does Your Lawn Mower Only Run With Choke On? Your lawn mower only runs with choke on because of a problem with the engine fuel-air mixture system, which can be caused by the carburetor, bad fuel, or air leaks. The choke compels more fuel in the combustion chamber to help the engine to turn over when cold.

Engine will not run with out choke being puh in
ANSWER : You will need to remove the carburetor and clean. Be sure to clean the high speed jet. This jet is the bolt that holds the fuel bowl on. Remove and clean the small holes in the sides of bolt. You will need a small piece of wire or bread tie just remove the outer covering and run this through the holes. Some have a hole in the bottom and smaller hole in the threads towards the top. Clean with carburetor cleaner and blow with compressed air. Try cleaning the jet first and if this doesn’t work then clean and rebuild entire carb. Hope this helps.

My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start. The pull cord is out about 4-6 inches out and I am concerned about taking the casing off myself.

Fearing that it may throw more off on the unit. If i take the casing off are there any spring loaded parts that will dismount?

What should I do? Spark Plug? Turn wrenches?

Please let me know

ANSWER : You should be fine to take the recoil off, there shouldn’t be anything that shoots out at you. You might want to check the oil level on the engine, many of the Honda engines won’t start unless there is enough oil in them. If your oil level is fine, check to make sure that your motor is getting spark.

Can i run plus gas in my washer – Northstar Pressure Washer 3000 PSI
ANSWER : I’m not sure what you mean.I think you are asking if your power washer needs oil mixed with the gas.Does your machine have a oil reservoir below the engine?If there is a place to put engine oil, then your engine runs on ordinary gasoline.The pump oil is SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil > oil comes up half way inside box.The engine oil is 10W30 motor oil > oil comes up bit more than half way on dipstick

1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer: My pressure washer is losing pressure and is pulsa…
ANSWER : If the pressure washer is pulsating then that is a sign of check valve failure. You may be able to clean of replace the check valves. Replacing the head is the wrong way to go. This is completely unnecessary. If you can tell me the model number of your pressure washer then I can assist you better in pointing you in the right direction.

Cleaning head not working good
ANSWER : The only way to get down to the bottom of this is to get yourself the necessary fittings and high pressure gauge so you can read what the line pressure is while the trigger is released and applied.You have to get down to the source, find out what it is.Could be a bad pump, bypass valve, debris inside trigger, or spray tip is worn out or is too big for the unit it has been attached too (not enough GPM).
