Hi All

I have a 15hp Petrol/Gasoline powered air compressor, the engine appears to be a clone of the Lifan 190F.

I notice there appears to be some oil seeping from the intake, air filter is dry but the housing below where the filter sits appears to seep oil from the side.
I do notice a puff of white smoke on startup. Running appears to be fine.

I have ensured it is not overfilled and on the H mark on the dipstick, will recheck again just incase.

The compressor does sit inside an enclosure I built for it which has powerful intake and exhaust fans that feed air, unsure if engine is overheating?

Any ideas appreciated. Cheers

If not the oil from the air filter, I'd do a leak down test on the cylinder. That could be blow-by which is then routed to the intake through the breather hose.

How many hours on the engine?
