Use Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W Oil above 40°F (4°C) for all of our engines.
Yes! We have recently modified our engine oil recommendations to state that you may now use a synthetic 5W30 or 10W30 oil in all temperature ranges. We recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Fully Synthetic Premium Long-Life Oil.
You can and it will increase the life of the engine, as it will lubricate better while the engine warms up. It will also make the engine easier to start but the difference may not be noticeable. What happens to an engine if I use 10W-40 instead of 5W-30 (manufacturer recommended)?
One of the biggest advantages of using 10W30 oils is that they can sometimes be used in place of SAE 30. While it is not recommended, doing so will not cause damage to the engine. This is due to the multi-grade oil properties that make this particular oil flexible enough to use in various temperature conditions.
Description: Chevron Supreme SAE 5W30 motor oil is ideal for use in pressure washers that use four-stroke gasoline engines.
Most pressure washer pumps use a 30w non-detergent oil. This is because most pressure washer pumps use splash lubrication.
There`s not much difference between 10W-30 and 10W-40 motor oil. What sets them apart has more to do with temperature fluctuations and engine load. For moderate weather, either engine oil grades should work fine.
You can use 10w30 instead of 5w30 oil since both meet the SAE standard for viscosity at operating temperatures. Generally, the viscosity difference between the two is neglectable. However, it`s important to note that a 10w30 oil will move slower than a 5w30 oil in cold environments.
It`s best to use the oil viscosity recommended in the owner`s manual, but using a slightly thinner or thicker oil (lighter or heavier viscosity) generally poses no long-term harm.
The differences between SAE 30 and 10W40 are that SAE 30 is a single-grade fixed-viscosity oil that is suitable for warm weather. On the other hand, 10W40 is a multi-grade oil that performs under a wilder temperature range, allowing it to be used in cold weather.
SAE 10W is equivalent to ISO 32, SAE 20 is equivalent to ISO 46 and 68, and SAE 30 is equivalent to ISO 100.
SAE30 is a straight 30 weight oil used on your lawn mower and other 4 cycle outdoor equipment.
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.
Yes. 5w30 and 10w30 are both 30 weight oils and the exact same thickness in your engine when it is at operating temperature.

Where is drain plug for engine oil – Briggs & Stratton Gas Pressure Washer 20244
ANSWER : 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.

What oil do i use in the pump? The oil is milky and needs changing.
ANSWER : 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.
