It is leaking oil. What kind of oil do I buy. Will it shut itself off if the oil is too low. That is what it did a minute or 2 after i plugged it in. It has never shut itself off before.

Regarding what type of oil, covered on this page : http://www.about-air-compressors.com/how-to-change-compressor-oil.html , and on a video on this site.

If the motor overheats, which is likely to occur if the oil is low, the motor will shut itself down on thermal cut out to try and protect itself. That it shuts off is a warning that something is wrong, and needs to be corrected.

Check the bolts around the oil sump and pump to ensure all are tight. These little compressors vibrate a lot, and in time, a fastener may have loosened.
