SOURCE: oil going into muffler on 5500 generac generator

Do a leakdown test and check ring status first, check for pressure on this test in the crankcase dipstick, that will help identify an internal ring issue/ Also check the intake valve seal

What kind of oil do you use


Judy, Generac portable generator oil recommendations. Above 40°F, use SAE 30. Below 40°F and down to 10°F, use 10W-30. Below 10°F, use synthetic 5W-30. Oil should be changed after the first 8 hours of operation and every 200 hours of run time thereafter.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Oil going into muffler,smoking


If you have oil in muffler, do a comression check test for ring issues, better yet do a leakdown test, (small engine shop can do this) if air pressure is coming out fo crank case then you have a bad ring, also check the reed valve under the valce cover, this allows crankcase oil / vapor to be drawn back in the intake. A leakdown test will reveal more. Also possibly an intake valve seal.
