Pressure Washer Engine Trouble? Check Your Air Filter

If you have engine trouble with your power washer, double check the air filter. A dirty filter reduces the flow of air to the carburetor which reduces performance over time. There are different kinds of air filter systems for pressure washers and the symptoms of a dirty filter may vary. One thing that's consistent in all pressure washers is the need to inspect the entire air filtration system, including the seals. Excess dirt or debris around the seals and on the filter itself are good indications that some maintenance is needed. Power washer repair is often as simple as taking care of routine issues like these.
