    Hey,

    I borrowed my friends BE Pressure washer with a 5 hp honda. Being stupid I accidentally put a little bit of 10 W 30 oil in to the pump oil housing (I wondered why it didn't have a dipstick lol). Is this going to harm it? A couple capfulls probably got in. I looked at the BE instruction manual and it says 30 Wt non detergent oil (I used castrol GTX). Will this still function or do I need to drain it out some how?

    Cheers
    Jeff

    I work on pressure washers and I do not think that that little bit of oil will cause any problems. I would not worry about it.
