I am assuming your enquiry is about the type of lube oil used in the pump section of the compressor. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the compressor. In any case craftsman suggests all oil lubed compressors use synthetic non-detergent compressor oil.

Something like this would be required.

My new 80 gallon Craftsman Professional air compressor's oil turned dark right away. I changed the oil and it happened again. Is there a problem? Thanks, Trevor


Problem sounds like the type of oil being used. The oil should be a gold color. It will get dark over time but not like oil in a car. Check your owners manual to be sure that the right oil is being used.

Compressors use a 30 weight non detergent oil. If you don't have a manual Go to any Sears Home and garden Department and they will be able to help you.

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.

I just bought a used Craftsman air compressor at a garage sale...100PSI, twin cylinder, 1HP motor. Model # 106.154440. Runs fine, but wondered how to check the oil level in the compressor case and if it...


I have a Sears 106.154581 most likely like yours. You will find a small plug (fill hole) and slightly larger plug on side of pump close to bottom (drain hole). Fill compressor with compressor oil to top thread of fill hole. Oil should look rather clear with very little odor. Compressor oil is available at Lowes for about $3. Good luck
