Yes, if it has been treated with a Pump Saver. A special designed anti-freeze and lubricant formula that helps to prevent harmful buildup of hard water mineral deposits. It protects pistons, valves and seals from damage during storage.
It Can Harm The Unit

Without water to cool and lubricate it, the pump will work harder than it should, causing it to wear down quickly. This can happen even with just a few seconds of running the pressure washer without the water being turned on.

Turn on the water. The pressure washer hose will fill with water, so it is important to purge the system of excess air before starting the unit. Simply squeeze the trigger on the gun and the air will release.
So, can you power wash in the rain? In short, yes. While there are safety precautions you must take, power washing in a light to medium rain can speed up and enhance the power washing process.
If it is raining lightly, with no sign of thunder or lightning, you are fairly safe. If it is pouring, you may want to consider another day. If there are thunder and lightning, definitely put the job off.
Pressure washers operate under pressure, and that pressure needs to be released by pulling the trigger. If you let the machine run for two minutes or longer without spraying water, then you could damage the pump.
Machine Type: Gas pressure washers can typically run for about 30 minutes before they need a break. Electric models can usually go for an hour or more. If you`re using a hot water pressure washer, you`ll need to give it breaks more frequently – about every 15 minutes.
When you are looking to clean the exterior of your home, you may be wondering if you can power wash with just water. The answer is yes – you can power wash with just water!

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.
