Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator

1 Answer

I've just purchased a Hyundai Generator HY3000si, and the instructions say to measure the oil level by just pushing the dipstick into the apperture without turning the cap to seal the apperture. I have filled the engine with oil and it takes a lot more that the quoted 0.45L just to reach the dipstick using the method advised. Can you advise what is the correct oil volume and method of checking it please, Thanks Graham

The generator shuts off after 30 minutes with an oil level alert but oil level if full

Your oil level sensor is bad. It needs to be replaced. If you unplug the wire leads to the sensor you may get the generator to run, but you'll have no low oil level/pressure protection. The oil level sensor is on the engine crankcase usually near the oil level dipstick. You'll likely see a small sensor with a couple of wires attached to it. To replace it, you'll need to drain your engine crankcase before removing the sensor.

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?

Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews

My Astra holden has 2 dipsticks one i know is for oil level the other just a /14 inch from the oil dipstick is my question , what is the second dipstick for??

Might you have an automatic transmission?
Automatic transmissions have their own dipstick.
I don't know about Aussies, but here in the states, transmission fluid has red die added to it to prevent your mixing them, and to tell you whether it is engine oil or transmission fluid that is leaking.
If you mix them by mistake, you must drain them and put in the correct fluid, or suffer ruining the engine or transmission, which ever one has the wrong fluid.
Your oil light should not be coming on. That is a different problem.
Oh, yes. There may be a dipstick on the power steering pump it you have power steering, but it should be really small. (short)

Onan microlight 2500 lp stop working

This type of generator has an oil-level sensor to prevent operation when it is too low. They burn oil pretty quickly, and 138 hours may have put you below the minimum. Check to see that the oil is filled to the right mark on the dipstick, and be sure it is on level ground when you do this.

Check oil level light comes on ,but the level is good

what kind of car, year, make model.

If the oil level is correct measuring with the dipstick then it most likely is just the oil sensor, on newer vehicles they've been known to be over sensitive but have also been known to let an engine run dry and never show an alert.

As long as you change the oil and the level is in the "safe" area on the dipstick then you have no worries.

Oil capacity powermate 5000

With the model number of your generator, you can to the address below and download the manual for your generator. Many of the manuals do not have specific information about the engine or oil capacity.

For specific information about the engine, look for the model number of the engine itself and go the mfg. website for loads of info. The brand and model of engine is usually located on the fan cover or stamped on the engine block. If, however you would like generic information about the engine, make sure that the oil level is correct (if dipstick, full mark, if oil plug, full to almost spilling out ) and dump the oil into container then measure. Some brands of engine recommend non-detergent others use auto type of oil. When necessary, any good quality oil is better than nothing. Good luck

I have a portable generator, 5600. My C1 engine light came on to check oil, however there is no dipstick. How do I check oil level etc?

No dipstick then you fill it all the way to the bottom of the oil fill hole. If you have a riser type oil filler the dipstick should be attached to the cap. Worst case senerio remove the low oil level sensor and fill with oil at that point until you can no longer add oil without making a mess, I am sure there is a gray oil cap somewhere. That is where your supposed to add oil until you can no longer add oil without it overflowing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

When checking the oil on the motor should the dip stick be screwed in for the correct oil level or just setting in the hole??

For Honda engine, just set in opening (unless it has a push-in dipstick like on auto ),

Briggs, most models, and other brands best to thread in unless stated in manual.

If oil cap is very close to base of engine and does not have an oil level marker, then fill to top thread (many older engines that did not have oil senser).
