Air Compressor Oil Related Issues – Oil Damage To Compressors

There is fuel in oil reservoir?

by Rusty
(Cuero, TX)

Our compressor is mounted on a service truck. the exhaust is facing the front of the truck.

Ibelieve wind entering the exhaust has damaged the baffles. the compressor starts for only a few seconds, then coughs and dies. upon checking the oil, we found that a large amount of fuel had leaked into the oil reservoir.

Any suggestions on where to start in order to fix the compressor. Indeed, next time we’ll be mounting the compressor with the exhaust facing the rear of the truck! Things you learn…

Thanks for your help
