Pressure Washer

Spark plug smells of gas in one engine

The other engine has a fast idle but slows down too much under load

    Can you give us some model numbers (engine and unit) and a few details of exactly what the problems are?

    Change the nozzle, it may be damaged or plugged. Also, using a well insulated screwdriver, ground each spark plug in turn. The engine should drop rpm equally on both cylinders, if nothing happens, that cylinder is not producing power. If it quits the other cylinder is dead.
