Yes, most air tools require about 6 drops of air tool oil before using and when taking a break for lunch or prolonged usage another 6 more. This needs to be done unless the manufacturer specifically states that it it oil free.

My Nissan 1400's oil just disappears and there is no oil leak on the floor. Each and every third or fourth day I must put three pin's of oil in the enjin. What could cause that oil usage?


Do you notice blue smoke when you start it? If so then the valves are leaking oil into the cylinders, Do you notice blue smoke when you accelerate? If so then you have bad piston rings.

Ice cream taste like oil...what is fix for this issue?


First of all, you MUST use food grade lubrication because it is not hazardous and wont be detected. Second is that it wont damage any seals on the machine like a petroleum based solvent would. Third is seals around the shaft are leaking.

I've got a compair 660A air compressor and have oil leaking out of the body of the oil pump cover.


I didn't think this was a pressure lubed machine. Is it leaking around the shaft seal, behind the flywheel? If it's just the oil leak, and the unit runs/sounds fine otherwise, you could put a gasket and seal kit in it.

You can search online for parts, but probably have better luck calling it a LeRoi 660A. Compair bought them years ago, and let the piston compressor business slowly die.

My xplorer 500 has been sitting for a month or so due to a dead battery I tried pull starting it and I noticed that there is oil running in to the air box what's the problem


Hello,

It sounds like you have too much oil in the crank case. It is due to one of three things, First, someone over filler it ( hard to see clear oil on the dipstick), Second the ATV was sitting outside and it got water in the crankcase somehow, or third, you could have gasoline that drained past the needle valve spilling into the cylinder, past one of the partialy open valves( intake ), leaking past the valves stem seal right into the crankcase. Or leaking backwards through the air box and right down the breather tube into the crank case. Either way drain the oil completley and add you oil to the full mark. Don't worry about changing the oil filter unless the oil is filthy black.

That should stop your oil problem in the air box.

Hope this helps

Mantis 4 cycle (brand new): oil leaking out, smoking soaking air cleaner, quits running..


Sounds like your gas tank is not breathing properly. try this: the next time you run the tiller and it begins to stall out, try loosening the gas cap. It should start running again. This means that the gas cap is clogged. Unclog it or purchase another one.

Thermostat issues on 99 eclipse non turbo


Well the antifreeze has to go somewhere so its either going out onto the ground via hose or gasket, or it can get into you oil system via gasket or out the tailpipe via gasket. Since you said you cant smell it I would look for a puddle on the ground or in the oil. But since you said its knocking i would have to say head gasket is leaking antifreeze into the oil.... Pull out your engine oil dipstick and see if its white/foamy, if it is its the headgasket/head issue.

Oil leak


and with the V50 I thought I'd achieved my ambition. It was oiltight to begin with but not long after I'd done a bit of maintenance (oil and air filter change) I started noticing drips underneath - coming from the pipe that dangles from the air filter unit (yes it still has the original [expletive-deleted] item). For a while I ignored it as there were so many other jobs needing to be sorted, but it has just got worse. After a long trip, parking it is embarrassing - especially as everyone knows that Guzzis are oiltight . . . Now it seems to me that the oil could have come from one of three places - the crankcase, or either of the rocker boxes, as all of their breather pipes go to the underside of the air filter chamber. I therefore detached the existing pipes to the rockerboxes, stopped up their ends, and ran new breather pipes from the rockerboxes to vent under the bike. I reckoned that, with three pipes dangling underneath (Sherlock Holmes' three-pipe problem?), I should be able to see which part of the machine was responsible. With me so far? Did a 21-mile trip this morning, put it back up on its stand and waited. Result - oil drips from all three pipes! Thinks: when bought, the oil level was only just above minimum on the dipstick. When I changed the oil, I filled it to the max level - and someone has suggested that this is the cause of the problem. I therefore drained some oil out, and it's now at the half-way mark though without any effect on the oil drips. I'm reluctant to drain more, though that might be the next step. If it does effect a cure, would that point to some other, underlying problem? Any ideas or suggestions welcome, as at the moment this machine is not living up to the Guzzi reputation.,The breather system on the V50 works in a peculiar way. The two pipes from the rocker covers are the main engine breathers. They go into a chamber in the air filter housing, and the tube from there to the crankcase is actually a return pipe, to get the oil recovered from the breather back into the sump. On mine, I am sure the breather then goes into the air box behind the carbs, and I didn't think I had another pipe dangling down. Certainly too much oil in the sump can cause problems in most Guzzis.,,,
