What could be wrong with my pressure washer if I have oil leaks?

Oil Leaks

Have you had oil leakage problems with your pressure washer? Whether you're power washing your home or using it for commercial or industrial purposes, you still need to properly maintain your unit. A pressure washer that leaks oil could be doing so for a few reasons:

• Check your oil indicator to make sure that you're not filling your pump with too much oil.
• Make sure the ventilation hole leading to your crank case is not plugged.
• Make sure the oil seals on the plungers aren't wearing down. If they are, you'll find oil build-up on between your pump and the transmission.
