When we turn it on it fires right up but it is blowing oil through the air lines, then it gets real hot and shuts down. I did notice the fluid was milky.

A P185 is a rotary screw compressor, your problem is with the separator element, not the piston seals.


Thanks. There are about 100 million, gazillion types, models and makes of air compressors available on the market. If the poster doesn't indicate the model and type, there isn't enough time in the day to research every model and make to specifically identify it for that poster. I then default to the common standard, which is a dirt cheap, foreign made, piston type air compressor.
