All air compressor will build pressure in the oil reservoir. This is caused by blow-by past the piston rings. The reason all compressors have this is due to the relatively slow rpm that the compressor crank is turning. Unlike a car's engine that is turning so fast the compressed gas doesn't have time to leak by the rings.
To deal with this problem air compressors have a special oil fill cap that alows the pressurized air to be vented out of the oil reservoir chamber.

There are three reasons that you are having this problem. The first is you have a clocked oil cap vent. Second is you have the wrong type of oil cap.
The third is the bad one. If the problem is unrelated to the oil cap then it means there is more blow-by then the vent cap can handle. This would indicate that you have worn or broken rings and/or worn cylinder wall.

If your compressor is not old (low hours), then take a close look at the cap. If it has more then 2000 hours then you will most likely need to rebuild the compressor, depending on the make and model.
Hope this helps and good luck.

Oil pressure gauge reading zero


check the oil pressure first, it should read around 10 to 14 psi. If pressure is inside the range then your pressure sensor is bad. If lower or reads 0 psi your got a engine problem, further diagnosis needed. Good luck.

Transmission 2 gear not working


Simple tell you there is a valve inside the transmission, the ends of the valve are respectively throttle control oil pressure, oil pressure and speed when you step on the gas inside the valve throttle pressure increases the transmission oil, pushing through change down to one side after a series of relations between the transmission will be blocked, as the speed of high-speed hydraulic control are on the rise, until after the oil pressure is higher than the throttle inside the valve to the other side through the transmission shift up oil, after a series of relations between the transmission block

Oil pressure light comes on in my golf gti mk4 turbo


these can be many things, lets start by having your oil level where it should be, if it is ok then buy a cheap mechanical oil pressure indicator, take off the original oil pressure sending unit, and connect the mechanical unit start the engine and check oil pressure it should be at idle between 20 and 30 psi and once you increase rpm it should go above 50 if its not inside these values your oil pump most be defective, your rod our main bearings are worn our you have a clogged oil pick up inside the engine,hope it helps and hope is only a faulty oil pressure unit

I have a new water heater. However, its capacity


Hi,
No you cannot safely increase the output of a tankless water heater. The alternatives would be to install a heater in your Jacuzzi or to add a tank type water heater to hold water for the tub and then run the haot water from the tankles into the tank. This way all the tank is doing is holding water for you to use and not heating it. Kinda defeats one of the purposes of having a tankles though.
Only other option would be to exchange the tankles for a higher ouput one. Also an exspensive option.

I have a tankles hot water heater. The problem is


this is a problem they didn;t tell any one about, there is a min of 1 gpm that you have to run for it to sence for the unit to come on, if not the unit will not detect the water is even runnig there for will not come on,, as for the kit faucet, it might have a temp control and it may need to have a cartridge change, the water comming from the tankless is nothing like the old tank heater, the water only losses aprox 1 or 2 degree where a tank heater losses almost 5 or more because of the way the cold water is fed into the unit,, thats whay the sprayer works and the faucet doesn't ,, you have control on the sprayer unlike turning the faucet on,,

The oil light keeps comming on and the oil is full


The oil light is a measurement of the oil pressure inside the the motor. It is not an indicator of how much oil is in the engine, and it is not an indicator of oil in the wrong place inside the engine. There is an oil pump inside the oil pan which pumps oil under pressure to the moving parts as they turn. The oil travels to the main bearings first and to the valve train last. When the oil light comes on it means that either the sending unit is bad or that that there is low oil pressure. When there is low oil pressure, then the moving parts are not being lubricated to the extent that the engineers intended. If the engine does not get oil to the moving parts - IT WILL DESTROY ITSELF.

Subject: 1974 Rover P6 3500 V8 Auto. After a few months lay up and after getting the car started, we noticed the oil pressure warning light was on and the pressure gauge was at zero. Is this a failure...


Hi,

In most engines, the oil pressure warning lights works in conjunction with the pressure gauge both of which detects the oil pressure circulating inside the engine. The pressure is brought about buy an oil pump which drives the oil around. Therefore, the light going on and/or the gauge reading zero indicates that either:
1. there is very little or no oil inside the engine; or
2. the oil pump is not working.

Another possibility is that the oil is too thick for the pump to work on.

All of the above has to be corrected prior to turning your engine.

It would be very rare for both the oil pressure sensor (that activates the light) and the oil pressure gauge to be defective simultaneously.

To my understanding, most if not all Rover V8 engines have an external/mechanical oil pump that is mounted on the front cover, the base of which carries the oil pressure relief valve and oil filter. This page has information about Rover's oil pump.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Air fuel mixture screw adjustment, forced air kerosene heater


Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.
