Surging briggs and stratton pressure washer
« on: April 18, 2015, 02:28:17 PM »
I have a Troy-bilt pressure washer with a Briggs and Stratton 6.75 OHV engine that runs for a few minutes and then starts surging. Shortly after that the engine will quit. If I restart it, the engine will run for a few minutes, surge, and quit again. The washer is almost unusable this way.

After some research, I decided to clean the carb and the washer worked for a whole day! Now, a few months later I'm trying to use the washer and it is surging. So I cleaned the carb just like I did the first time but it made no difference.

I'm looking for ideas of what I can do to fix this for the longer term. Thanks.

Surging is usually caused by fuel/carb problems, but it can also be caused by governor problems.

Sounds like you still have a fuel related problem. I would try cleaning the carburetor again. You might end up needing to replace the carburetor. Not sure. You need to determine that on your end.
