Issue 1. I am trying to winterize my ryobi gas powered pressure washer. I connect the pump save bottle to the water intake on the pressure washer, then I'm suppose to squeeze the bottle while pulling the chord at the same time to cycle the pump saver fluid through the the pump then it's suppose to come out the outtake on the pressure washer, this is the second year I've tried to do this, first year I got half the bottle into the pump but nothing came out the other end it took me 20 minutes of constant squeezing and pulling the chord. this year (second year) I've tried for 10 minutes straight doing the same routine and nothing is entering the pressure washer, it's like it's plugged and not letting the pump save fluid enter the pressure washer. I am going to assume that it should not be this hard to do and not take as long.
Should the engine switch be turned on? should the fuel switch be turned on? should I just use one of those compressed pump saver cans that will blow the fluid through the pump?
Has anyone has this issues.
Issue 2 is (my pressure washer is only 2 years old) is every time I turn it on I let it run for a few minutes but as soon as I pull the trigger it stalls, I can to try 3-4 times every time to get it to run, after I have it running for a while it runs fine. This is a brand new pressure washer it should not stall at all correct?
