My 80 vertical 2 stage ingersoll rand is leaking oil from under the motor. What would be the fix?

The motor shouldn't have actual oil leaking from it. It could be oil migrating from a leak in a area close to the motor or oil dripping on the motor giving the appearance the motor is leaking? If it's a small amount of oil it might be the grease seeping out of the motor bearings.

Synthetic motor oil - Does it last any longer than regular motor oil ?

No. It does not last any longer than regular motor oil. The oil filter cannot pick up metal particles that are 50 times smaller than the diameter of the human hair. They accumulate over time. By the time you have driven 6000 miles, these micro sized metal particles start to cause excessive wear on the engine. This motor oil still has plenty of life in it. But it must be changed no later than 6000 miles, due to an inadequate oil filter that cannot pick up micro sized metal particles. All oil filters allow these micro sized metal particles to pass right through it. If your car has the feature of % of oil life left, you still need to change the motor oil at or before 6000 miles, regardless of the % of oil life left. It does not matter what brand of synthetic motor oil that you buy. They all need to be changed at the same interval that was stated in this article.

How much oil what wt.

Most any kind of 4-cycle motor oil like 10W-30 will work in these motors. After draining the old oil replace the drain plug. There are two types of motor oil fill holes: 1. If you have a motor with the oil fill/check hole on the bottom of the motor and a small screw-in plug either with or without a small dip stick on it; with the motor level, fill the crank case with oil until it is up to the threads on the oil fill/check hole. 2. If you have a motor with a long dip stick that goes into a filler tube at the top of the motor, again with the motor level, put in about half a quart of oil and use the dip stick to check the oil level. If not full, add quarter quart amounts and check again until the oil is at the full mark on the dip stick. Do not overfill the crank case with oil. Most motors will take about one quart of oil but it varries so watch to see the oil level come up to the proper level.

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

There's a knock on start up, and when I checked the oil none registered on the dip stick, no visible leaks and no oil stains anywhere. I only just gave it an oil change. There was no oil light warning at...

no oil on dipstick is a very BAD THING make sure you have oil in the motor before you do anything else!!! or else it can cost you a motor if you did your own oil change,,, did you put oilpan plug back in? did you tighten the oil filter? did you put 5qts oil back into motor? there SHOULD BE A READING ON THE DIPSTICK. new oil looks almost transparent on the dipstick. try rubbing your finger on the dipstick to check for oil presence. look real close at the dipstick before you start your motor!!! if you added 5qts oil it went somewhere,are you sure it went into the motor? if no oil in motor there will be loud knocking from the motor. hope this helped you save your motor!!!!!

On the side of my 86 kx 80 2 stroke there is a hole with a pluge on it do i put tranny or motor oil in it and what fuel mixture should i use(would out board oil work

The plug on the side engine casing is for 10w40 motor oil. NEVER use synthetic lubricants or oil with 'special' additives. They can mess up your clutch. The 10w40 motor oil is shared by the gearbox and the engine because they are a single unit.

Use 4 ounces of two stroke engine oil for every gallon of gas. That will give you a 32 to 1 mixture which is the industry standard. If the outboard motor is a 2 stroke (most of them are), the engine oil is the same. Note the difference > Engine oil verses Motor oil. Motor oil in the gearbox, Engine oil in the gas.
