    The engine on my Generac power washer starts easy but after a few minutes under a load it starts cutting out and stops. I restart easily and it runs about 30 seconds under a load and starts cutting out and stops. When I restart easily it doesn’t run smooth. I’m going to look at the filter next. The oil is good and level is good. Last year it ran under a load as long as I held up lol.
