SOURCE: Makita MAC 5200 3 HP 5.2 Gallon electric compressor

Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!

SOURCE: need to know how much

You will add 2oz of oil to compressor then stand it up on the pulley so oil lubes front seal. let it sit for 10 min like that then install, its a good thing to replace the dryer alot of parts places make you replace it inorder to get warranty for compressor. if you replace the dryer then add 1oz inside of that, after you put it togther and line are connected spin compressor by hand 15 times to help get some oil out of compressor and into lines, make sure to vacuum the system for 1/2 hour to get air and moisture out of system. a vacuum pump is needed to do this. good day.

Air conditioner needs oil how do i put in oil?


Compressors shouldn't need oil anymore than what it came with From the factory. If it lost some through some tragic circumstance you would recover, pull the compressor out, dump the oil. Add the oil through the stub tube as per the factory charge on the data plate. Then reinstall the compressor, vacuum, recharge system refrigerant

Coleman air compressor Model # MLO503013 what kind, type of oil is used in the compressor crankcase. The owners manual has been lost or misplaced. Thank you!


If it takes oil, you should use air compressor oil or, if you cannot find this product at your full service auto parts store, use SAE 30 non detergent.

Thanks for your visit today.
