Do not use 30 wt oil. It will wreak the oil/air seperator filter. Use Ingersoll Rand Pro-Tec fluid. It will hold approx 3 gallons.

Ingersoll Rand likes you to buy their all season select oil for their air compressors, most piston air compressors use an R+O 100 oil it is equivalent to n SAE 30 wt oil.

It sounds like the pressure switch is bad or out of adjustment. Typically the pressure switch is set at 175psi on a 2340. If the auxillary valve you are speaking of is on the pressure switch and is constantly blowing air from it you have a bad receiver tank check valve. Also if you are getting a lot of oil out the valve at the pressure switch you may have some oil control rings bad.
