This is strange, compressors would normally pressurise the crankcase when rings wear, and you could possibly get water in the oil. About the only thing that could get oil coming out of the airline is if the compressor oil level is too high or it has been pushed up by water finding its way into the crankcase. What should then be coming out of the line is a mixture of oil and water. Is the tank water valve drained regularly?

2001 dodge Dakota brakes seem to have air changed master cylinder still got air can't get it out bleed brakes


when bleeding brakes start at the master cyl lines. crak the nuts at the lines and pump the pedal until you have oil coming out . This primes the master cyl.. Next start at the longest line and bleed back to the shortest. Two man operation . Pump and hold down and then open the bleed screw . tighten the bleed screw and allow the pedal to come back up re-pump the pedal and hold down until all the air is out of that line. Repeat the process fpr all the lines ensuring that you monitor the oil level in the reservoir so that you do not have to start again.

Siegler oil stove


You need to bleed air from line, look for bleeder screw and unscrew while trying to start unit. Don't unscrew all the way, when oil comes out, screw back in and unit should start. Screw should be on filter housing and one on burner motor (where fuel line comes in).

Oil coming out of air filter in y 2002 harley


Hi Anonymous, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck

I have a worthington tow behind compressor, and I have a ton of oil mixing in with the air, it makes a huge mess. I have replaced the filter, any other suggestions


you stated you replaced the filter.Was it the separator filter? the separator filter is located inside the separator tank. the separator tank is where you add oil. If this filter is bad it will cause oil and air to mix and get into the air. Also there is a 1/4 inch line that comes from the top of the tank . this line has an orffice in it If the orffice plugs oil can carry over into the air.

SSR-EP75 Ingersoll Rand SERIAL # F15525U95286 320 CFM i CONTINUE TO ADD OIL GOES OUT ON HIGH AIREND TEMP. SOMEONE TOLD ME THERE WAS AN ADJUSTMENT FOR THIS. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT TO...


Mike, an EP 75 Should not use more than 3 to 5 parts per million of oil. Your oil issue sounds like you have a separator that needs replacing or a plugged scavenge line. The separator is located in the oil tank. the scavenge line and orifice come from the bottom of the separator filter to and Thur the oil tank lid. then to the air end. In this line approx. 1ft from the lid should be the orifice. make sure its clean. your high air end temp can be from several different problems. 1- low oil level from separator or scavenge line plugged. 2- A plugged oil cooler. Dirt and debris pushed against the cooler by the the cooling fan. This needs to be cleaned using a pressure washer. Wash in the opposite direction of air flow. Be careful with the pressure washer. You can damage the cooler. Low oil level and dirty coolers are the most common problems when getting high air end discharge temp shutdowns. However you could also have a bad thermal valve located where the three cooler lines come together. you will have to remove one line and 4 bolts. inside is the thermal element. You may also have a bad HAT switch (high air end temperature). It is located in the end of the air end and simply unscrews. I do not know of any adjustment.

Gardner denver air compressor is blowing oil, need help


Is this a rotary screw compressor? If so, is it blowing oil out of the air filter or out of the discharge air lines? If it's blowing oil out of the air filter you have a oil stop valve or minimum pressure check valve bad. If oil is coming out of the discharge air you need to change the seperator.

Oil coming from line from engine feeding into air


More than likely your air filter is clogged and needs replacing. If that is the situation the carb needs air and is pulling suction on the crankcase breather tube siphoning up oil instead of just burning the vapors. If it was a busted ring the oil would be coming out the exhaust and burning blue smoke.
