Question Toro Pressure Washer

Did I ruin my pressure washer? Recently, I overfilled the oil in the unit without knowing. After it was started, there was white smoke, I shut it down immediately. Later I noticed a puddle of oil. Have the seals been damaged. What should I do next?undefined

remove the excess oil, it still may smoke a bit until it clears out.

depends how overfilled it was and how long it ran that way.

Buy what you said, of shutting it down right away.

Where was the oil did it come out the over flow on the carb or from the muffler ? or other ?

Hello MMudd!

Drain the oil to the proper level, start it up and let it run until the smoke clears. Don't worry, you didn't hurt it. While it's running, make sure you have it connected to a water source and spray with it to keep the pump from overheating. (You don't want to run a pressure washer for long at a time without spraying water through it).
