Customer Question

Hello Curtis, I have a troy bilt 2,550 psi pressure washer. The engine starts fine but I have noticed that it loses pressure and sometimes regains it and now it only has pressure when I first squeeze the trigger and quickly loses pressure. Is this a pump problem, unloader problem, or something else. Thanks, Jack

Hi Jack my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answer. It could be the unloader but the usual symptoms are it will spray good and run long as the trigger is held open , once you let go of the trigger it dies
