Question about Makita MAC2400 Electric Powered Air Compressors

1 Answer

Brand new Makita MAC2400 is leaking oil.

Just took it out of the box today(I ordered from Amazon), put oil in, air filter and followed the initial startup instructions(let run not filling for 20 minutes). Once it was broken in I shut it off and closed the valve and started it back up. I came back out to check on it's progress(which seems really slow too) and I noticed oil leaking from the unit. I didn't know if that was normal so I continue to work and I just shut it off and it's still leaking and it's almost out of oil. It's all over my garage. Any idea what this could be, it's not coming from the oil cap or drain.

Hi my suzuki gz 125 wont idle correctly and when i rev the engine it just dies down and cuts out i cant even achieve a stable idle speed


I had this problem today with my bike and after much ado I discovered there was oil in the air filter box... check your oil level it could be too full. Mines was and the excess oil was blown into the air filter box and as a result contaminated the air filter. Spent today cleaning the filter box, carb and draining and changing oil, could not get a new air filter today so ran it without onebike runs like new!! New air filter will be here Monday!

Mower thoughing oil while it is running then chokes out


If the mower has been tipped up oil will now have entered the air filter box and soaked the paper air filter, remove the filter and run the engine to see if the oil burns away and the engine runs normally, do not over fill the engine with oil, fill only to the max mark on the dip stick.

My greetings to all Iam from Saudi Arabia and bought 2005 ford free star sport with 4.2 L and i do not know how to get the manual and how many for oil for changing oil with filtter . thank you


you should change the oil every 4000 to 5000 km in that hot climat your van should take a little more then 4 liters of oil so buy 6 liters oil filter part # should be on the filter you could take it off the old one if your doing this yourself drain oil put new filter in and add 4 liters of oil wait 5 minutes check oil level on dip stick add half liter at a time and check oil level again wait few minutes in between for oil to drop down in oil pan for proper readings on dip stick.repeat ontil oil level shows in the hatch marks on dip stick DONT OVER FILL. also fill oil filter with oil before instaling the new one to insure that oil will flow trought engine at startup without having to fill oil filter first leaving engine to run without oil until this happends internaly on its own you may have a liter left after your done ,you can use this for top ups inbetween oil changes .you should also check and replace your air filter at this time .

Oil in air cleaner


Run it minus an air filter until all the oil is off your piston head, you can also try keeping the plug out and ejecting the oil via that access by pulling the cord. It seems like you've already solved the problem, now you're just cleaning up.

2003 honda shadow spirit vt750 carb problem


buddy dont worry about it what you have done is put to much oil inside the engine and as the piston goes down it cause abit off pressure which in the small space it has when you over filled it the pressure inside has just forced the oil out the breather into the air box just give it a little clean and drop oil aswell bud

Way too much oil, how do I fix?


If the problem was just overfill, the smoke should clear up after running it for awhile. You may want to replace air filter or clean if possible.

Engin fogs the neiborhood with air filter on.


Sounds like it's pulling oil by the rings/valves -- the air filter is creating more suction. I would try a small amount of an oil additive for high mileage engines. Follow the mixing/proportion directions on the bottle. Sounds like this engine is "wearing out".
