Always use 30w non-detergent oil. The oil level of the Comet pump can be checked by removing the oil cap and inspecting the dip stick. The correct level should fall between the “Min” and “Max” lines on the dip stick. Do not run the pump dry.
Pressure washer water pumps need relatively low oil recommended by the manufacturer, as specified in the owner`s manual. (Purchase pre-measured bottles of pump oil for water pumps without dipsticks.) Never use special oil additives or detergents, unless specified in the owner`s manual.
Crankcase oil capacity: 11 oz.
SAE 10W-30 or SAE 10W-40 are oils that are useful in both hot summer and cold winter days. For example, if you are looking to use your pressure washer and the temperatures are about 40 degrees (F) or less, SAE 10W-30 will be your failsafe option. Anything about 40 degrees, it can still be your best option.
Udor recommends 90W gear lube be used in the gear box. Most gear boxes have a sight plug on the side to show the oil level. The oil level should be to the center of the plug.

Oil appears to have come out of the oil filler cap. Is this a sign of overfilling the oil, or something else?
Id definitley say its over filled. try checking the dipstick
I think I added too much oil to my pressure washer. It lost pressure after about 20 minutes, then smoke came our where the exhaust area is. I immediately turned it off. Then I noticed oil dripping from the oil filter. What do you might have happened and what should I do?
Drain the oil until the proper level is reached….let the unit sit for awhile until cool and then remove spark plug and clean it….i think it should be just fine….good luck
What oil do i use in the pump? The oil is milky and needs changing.
Well you can use direct recommended from Ace Hardware see link.
They recommend 250 hours, but i’d change more often, like you said when it’s milky. If it begins to get water in the oil sooner, that indicates your piston to crankcase seal is beginning to leak.
I bought a troybuilt pressure washer used and i changed the motor oil and ran it maybe 5 minutes.
later i checked the oil level again and it shot out the cap and i noticed the pump oil level is also almost to the top of sight glass. Does anyone know whats wrong?
If you left it sit for a while & did not turn the fuel tap off,it may have flooded and therefore the oil level would have risen causing the oil to over flow.
always turn the fuel tap off when not using your pressure wahser.
1750 psi Electric Pressure Washer: My pressure washer is losing pressure and is pulsa…
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.
Need help in getting Honda engine on NorthStar pressure washer to run.
Could be low water pressure I have found.Also, I purchased a can of “stuff” at Lowes today which allows you to circulate a liquid substance which lubricates the pressure pump….the pump could be frozen up…I have a rotating nozzle which I bought…and it had frozen up…this stuff works

Where is drain plug for engine oil – Briggs & Stratton Gas Pressure Washer 20244
If you are refering to the engine, the drain plug is on the underside above the pump. Sometimes it’s located on both sides at the very bottom where the engine is bolted to the frame. It may have both of these drains, but the one on the side you can’t get to due to the frame being in the way so this is why they put them in two different spots. I hope this helps.
