    What do you consider "very cold" as a tempature. I have a Coleman Powermate 5500. Would the 5W30 work in temps around 20 degrees?

Unless you're in very cold locations use SAE 5W30 regular motor oil.

Honda 5000 generator with remote starter running rough.. tis like ******* or something.. oil was almost empty so i stopped generator and added oil and restarted.. can u give some advice as to how to remedy...


Those generators are set up with a low oil saftey but your gonna want to check compression anyways just to verify it is where it needs to be. Im gonna guess its to be between 120-160 psi, check your manual for the service limits. after that check your air filter, valve lash, fuel filter etc etc.

Where do you buy the gas shut off valve for the 5000 power mate coleman generator with a 5 gal plastic tank.


Take the old valve, called a petcock, to a local lawn mower repair shop and they should be able to help you.

Correct oil for this generator


This all depends on what type of climate you live in. Most small engines that (do not) have an oil filter uses SAE 30 motor oil. This oil has a detergent in it that helps clean your engine.

What type of oil do i take for a porter cable 5250 watt electric generator?


Your generators take ordinary 10W30 motor oil.
We use these things on the job.
Don't turn engine upside down or on its side to drain oil, or oil will run into carburetor
