Open the plug at the bottom of the tank while the compressor is on so that it will blow out all the crud. The black liquid is the gunk from the oil in the compressor and staknant water. When the crud stops coming out and you herar just air, you should close the valve and you are set to go. You should drain this tank al least once a month if you use the compressor a lot. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

Husky 25 gallon compresor reaches 115 psi, not any more and keeps running, does not shut off


If it is not getting to pressure then either your safety valve is leaking or the drain plug on the bottom is open. Do you hear air escaping when it is running?

I am changing the transmission filter and gasket, where is the drain plug for the fluid and will that drain everything out or do I need to disconnect any hoses? Thanks


Some automatic transmissions have a drain plug on the pan, most don't. The fuid on the drain pan is drained as the pan comes off the transmission. Most torque converters don't have a drain plug, few do. Generaly, most of the fluid remains in the torque converter, many pints of fluid. The best change in this case is to do a transfusion of the fluid at a shop. Some people disconnect a fluid hose to coolant in the radiator and pour the fluid in the filler hole quickly with the engine in idle as the fluid drains out the disconnected hose. I'd rather take it to a shop for a trans fusion

Where is transmission filter


My understanding is that it is inside the transmission. You drain the fluid (hopefully there is a drain plug) and remove an access cover plate, or more likely, the transmission's bottom cover to access the filter. If no drain plug, oil will "self-remove" when you loosen the cover - be sure you have a large drip pan with at least a gallon capacity or lots of oil absorbent (kitty litter works well!).

When cold compressor starts and fills up with air. after used with power tools, the compressor wont restart.


you may have a bad pressure switch:

Unplug the compressor. Drain the tank down to zero. Close the drain. Get down close to the pressure switch and have someone else plug the compressor back in while you are closely monitoring the pressure switch. Do you hear anything happen? Do you see any movement in the pressure switch.
by plugging it in with the tank at zero pressure, you should hear a click as the pressure switch trips due to low pressure. It should trip and send power to the electric motor. If this doesn't happen, you may have a pressure switch problem.

My Campbell Hausfeld compressor model WL650101AJ will only pump to 80psi and will not shut off.


TAKE THE COVER OF THE TOP HAS 2 PHILLIPS SCREWS AND SNAPS OFF. THERE IS A COPPER TUBE THAT GOES BETWEEN THE COMPRESSOR HEAD AND THE CHECK VALVE TAKE THE TUBE COMPRESSION NUTS LOOSE AND REMOVE THE TUBE. CHECK THE RUBBER SEALS IF THEY ARE MISSING OR TORN YOUR COMPRESSOR LEAKS WHEN IT IS RUNNING BUT IF YOU SHUT IT OF THERE IS NO AIR IN THE PIPE SO CHECKING IT WITH IT OF WONT DETECT THE LEAK. MY COMPRESSOR WAS DOING THE SAME THING AN THIS FIXED IT.

Transmission fluid capacity for 2008 Lincoln MKZ? in quarts


If you have the Asin Trans which most MKZ' woth V6 engine of that year such as my own MKZ take 7.4 quarts dry, probably about 5 if just removing the drain plug on the bottom. there is a drain plug which takes a large torx socket to remove, no filter because the valve body is located on the uppper side of the trans and not the bottom like normal transmisions. the fluid is a special fluid ,Motorcraft
XT-8-QAW Fuid.I would not rust any after market brand which says it is compatable. It can be bought at a ford dealer, or I even saw it for sale on Ebay. Hope this helps, you exact trans type can be found in your owners manual as well as on Fordowner.com if you make a profile and add your VIN of your vehicle to your garage. You can download manuals there and even make service appointments

Takes forever to pressure up


Double check that the drain valve is fully closed on the bottom of the tank. Once it reached 100 PSI, did it stay pressurized or did the pressure drop? Did you run the initial break-in procedure described in the manual? Do you hear any air leaks?
