The pressure washer will use two kinds of oil.

The engine uses 20 ounces of SAE 30 weight oil in the engine.

The pump will use 120 milliliters of a 80W90 weight oil.

I hope this information is helpful in solving your problem but if any questions come up then submit another question for additional assistance on this problem.

Without the model number of the pressure washer, I cannot determine what oil you would need. It is worth noting that some pumps are considered to be "non serviceable" and the manufacturer does not supply that information.

If you can re-submit your question with the model number of the pressure washer, we can find out what you need for your machine.

The weight of oil depends on the type of weather you have.

Above 40 degrees Fahrenheit - SAE 30

0 - 40 degrees Fahrenheit - SAE 5W-30 or 10w-30

I do not know the amount of oil you will need to use. There is a dip stick that you will use to measure the fill amount and determine when you have added enough oil.

I have included a link to your owner's manual. The procedure for changing your oil is located on

page 15

. There is also a maintenance chart on

page 13

that you can print out and use to keep record of the dates you perform different task.

The oil in the pump on your pressure washer is a specially blended synthetic motor oil. This oil is not available for local purchase.

Order the part number 190585GS from Sears Parts Direct. This will get you a bottle of the correct oil. The bottle will contain the proper charge for the pump. The cost of the oil is around $6.00.

You should lubricate the engine shaft where it inserts into the pump to keep it from rusting and seizing. Use some axle grease or white lithium grease.

The oil inside the pump lubricates the bearings and seals inside the pump. Your pump uses a special blend of synthetic oils. You should order a bottle of oil, part number 190585gs. The cost of the oil is around $6.00.
