First check the oil level. It should not be overfilled. Is the compressor level?

If above is all OK, change the oil with the recomended ok. Check the IR web site for an approved oil. It is important that the right oil is used.

If you still have a problem it sounds like a time for piston rings.

Good Luck

Mac2400 leaking air at oil breather hole


I have read both your questions and after taking both into consideration it sounds like it needs new piston rings. On a gas engine it is called blow by but both have a piston with rings on them, as they wear the end gap gets bigger and bigger allowing compressed air to bypass the rings into the crankcase where the oil is, the breather is there to allow air from the room to enter and exit as the piston goes up and down to avoid pressure or vacuum in the crankcase, the air on the top side of the piston is supposed to go into the tank but in your case some of it is going around the piston rings and into the crankcase building pressure and blowing oil out. There is not much inside a compressor like a gas engine, taking the head off and the oil pan should let you take off the connecting rod bolts and push the pistons out the top. This answer is based on the two comments of cant build all the air pressor and it is blowing oil out the crankcase breather. If you hit the 80 psi and unplug the compressor can you hear air coming from the limit switch box that the power cord goes into ? I will wait for your answer to continue.

When I plug my Magnum 2 HP 5 gallon compressor in, it blows out oil out of the red plug that you put oil in


Could be you are filling it too much, such as to the top of the oil hole instead of the bottom of the hole. I suggest you check the manual.

Perhaps the compressor isn't level or perhaps the crankcase breather is blocked or not working properly or perhaps there is too much piston blow-by for the breather to cope with.
Good luck!

Oil cap and dipstick covered in creamy sludge, is this breather prob as not losing any water


Yes, it could be that a plugged up Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve or engine crankcase breather (with filter) is the cause allowing moisture to condense in the crankcase. However, if the valve and breather are okay, a cylinder compression test should be done to verify that the cylinder head gasket is not leaking. Regardless, the engine oil should be drained and the engine flushed with clean oil and an appropriate crankcase flush additive. Entrained water in the oil (the creamy sludge) will damage engine bearings quickly.

After warming up my suzuki 750 gsx leaks a oil/fuel mixture out of the air cleaner


You need to service the crankcase breather system. Basically, this means taking apart and cleaning all the goo out of the area where the crankcase breather tube goes into the air box. Also check the air filter for oil saturation and replace if needed - and clean any accumulated oil from the inside of the air filter box.

1979 briggs and stratton 11 hp how to fix


If it is, as you say, a 1979 or so engine, the crankcase breather could have well worn out. This will cause the oil burning and blowby. Replace the breather as an assembly, they are cheap and available from any Briggs dealer. The leaks are probably loose bolts and/or bad gaskets. You will just have to figure where the leaks are and replace the appropriate gasket. The breather could also cause the leaks so do the breather first then run it for a while to see if it is still leaking

Oil in air breather


sounds like you have too much oil in the engine (should normally be around 500-600ml when there is too much oil, it gets past the piston rings and pushes it through to the head.

TRACTOR BLEW WHITE SMOKE, AND STARTS TO SPUTTER


Start with making sure your oil lever is not over full. If it is it may be getting into the crankcase breather hose that goes to the carburetor hence the white smoke. Sometimes also you can blow a gasket in the breather system and it will do the same. Check for oil leaks in the breather system. Hope this helps. donnyb60

WILL NOT BUILD PRESSURE


Many craftsman compressor are built by champbell hausfeld using a dry type of cylinder and piston (no oil, no crankcase). If dry type, check for worn cylinder and piston ring. Pieces of the vinyl ring can jamb between the reed valves in the head causing air to escape from the intake. If your compressor has a crankcase and oil, check for broken reed valves in head. Spray soap solution on hoses, checkvalve, drainvalve, and fittings to check for leaks. Most likely problem is reed valves broken or open. Parts are available from sears or match parts to chpower.com. enjoy
