When I purchased mine new it came with 1 Quart and I found it to be just a little too much when I filled the crankcase. Check the Oil level stick when adding.

Lost the owners manual and need to know what type of oil it takes.


any good 30 weight will do fine. If yuo run it a great deal like I do mine I put a little STP type of lube in with the oil to help it out there. Also change the oil about every 50 hours so you dont get oil break down

Best of luck

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.

I have a proforce 2500 watt generator and it cuts out is this caused by low oil? if I change oil how much does it get?


Low oil doesn't usually make engines cut out. Clean the air filter, change the plug and wire. If this doesn't help then I think you're looking at a carb. problem. Probably just clogged jets & ports. It's very common on small engine carbs. It shouldn't take more than 2 quarts of oil. Probably not even one.

Oil change


There are two 14mm bolts on both sides (lower) of the motor. Unscrew one or both and drain the oil....Replace with sae 30 or 10w30 oil and should take almost a quart. (Put the bolts back in and tork slightly.) Check oil level.

Lost manual 6250 watt coleman generator what oil to use and were


If it has the Tecumseh engine..

Above 40°F Straight SAE 30W
Below 40°F down to -20°F Straight SAE 10W or SAE 5W30 or
Below 40°F down to -40° SAE 0W30 Synthetic

Using multigrade oils above 32°F will increase your oil consumption. SAE 10W40 is not recommended.

Per the manual, all the oils should be marked A.P.I. Service SL/SJ, but you may have to use something to a newer standard. E.G.: Service SM.

The oil sump capacity is 1-5/8 U.S. Pints or 0.76 Liters.

Hope this helps.

What type of oil for a Coleman 5000 Generator?


You need a quart of regular old SAE 5W30 motor oil with detergent.
The engines on these generators are more or less the same as a lawn mower.
Don't forget to service/change the air cleaner when you change the oil, that should keep your generator producing full power.

Regards,
Carl
