    My garage was flooded now my pressure washer does not work. I changed the oil, and drained the gas got it running now the pump only builds up a little pressure then when you pill the trigger it shoots a little water then. stops help.

    Try Back Flushing

    take the pressure hose off at the pump, (you may have to rig some type of fitting to hook up a regular water hose.)remove the strainer on the inlet side if it has one , then turn the water on full pressure. you may have to do this a few times. it could have debris, on the inlet side,from the flood water. it's worth a try. this may not work if it has a check valve.
