The crank shaft seal is bad on the motor. You will need to seperate the motor from the generator to replace the seal. Depending on the seal design, you will have to open the crankcase on the output shaft side to remove the seal.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Need model and serial number off this unit in order to proceed.

However, if it is a KY model, with an about 2" cover underneath. That cover is blocking the oil drain plug. It is possible that the oil drain plug is leaking. Remove and drain oil into pan. Clean the plug and add plumbers tape to the plug and install. Then fill the unit back up with oil.

SOURCE: I have a Coleman 5500 with Tecumseh motor and it

Look for a crack in the crankcase... possibly near a mounting boss. Also oil filler plugs sometime leak if overfilled.

Suggestion: Use some "gunk" engine degreaser to make it sparkle so you can spot where the leak originates. You probably need to put it up on a bench OR use an inspection mirror.

SOURCE: Coleman 6250 PoweLeaking gas at bottom of motor housing. Can not

The gas is leaking from carb but in the motor not out.
You should check and repair the carb flow valve. The floating unit may be full and bent down.

I have a oil leak on a coleman generator


Most likely at the output shaft of the motor. If you are handy, you might be able to replace the crankshaft seal yourself, but this will probably require you to seperate the generator from the motor, and remove the cover holding the seal. If the leak is small, it may be best to just keep adding oil. If you have to take it to be repaired, it may be more expensive than the unit is worth.

How many miles does an 1997 Buick Lesabre usually last?


Gm says a 3800 engine should last ove 400,000 miles with normal service. This engine for 97 will probably need a new plastic intake manifold one day. They will leak coolant into the combustion chamber and some un-educated mechanics will tell you that it needs head gaskets as they don't have a head gasket problem. The oil pan may leak on this car too, replace it with a fel-pro perma dry gasket and it will stop it. Mine has 297,000+ miles on it.

Motor labouring - electric breaker kicking out


The problem that you describe could be casued by several problems that you can check yourself. I usually begin by checking the in-tank check valve for leaking air back to the pump. Follow the air discharge hose to the tank and you will find the brass checkvalve. With about 80psi in the tank, unplug the unit from the wall and loosen the smaller fitting (or larger whichever is easier ) at the checkvalve and listen for air leak. If leaking replace with generic valve available at www.grainger.com. Just pay attention to pipe sizes. If no leaks at check valve, remove capacitors from the motor (mark the leads) and test with meter. Repair shops usually test for free if you do not have a meter that can test capacitors. The caps should test within 95% of rating printed on side. Replace with generic to save money just watch size so that they will fit under cover (also available at grainger). If no problems so far, remove the belt and check bearings on motor and compressor for noise (should be relative silent as your turn it by hand). Worn bearings on the motor will cause the motor to overheat. Worn bearings on compressor will just make noise but usually not cause your problem. If all good, then problem could be valves in pump leaking causing the pump to become very hot. This is a visual inspection by removing the head. Finally the electric motor uses sealed bearings and cannot be lubed, only replaced due to age. Good luck

time for a new car.  You single handedly ruined this motor.  Don't waste anymore money on this car,  buy another car and do the prescribed maintenance as required. Think of this as an expensive lesson.
