Recently, some friends were building a fence for me. I've been laying low with health problems for several months. I noticed they had a second air compressor they were using. They said mine wouldn't work.
Well, it looks like it is low on oil. At least that is my guess. I haven't taken a close look. But when I turn it on, it will slow roll a few times. Then I turned it back off.
What do you think? Is it ruined? Would it be more expensive to get it repaired or just buy a new one? It's a Coleman Black Max 4hp w/20 gal tank.
Coleman does not make compressors to the best of my knowledge. So this is probably an overseas manufactured compressor they buy and re-sell. If it does not have a finned cylinder like on your lawn mower or on an air cooled motorcycle engine, it is not worth trying to fix, if it can even be fixed at all.
