Customer Question
I have a 1998 sullair...
I have a 1998 sullair 185 cfm towable compressor model # XXXXX DPQ JD. I just serviced the machine and changed all the engine oil, fuel, and hydraulic filters and installed all new fluids. When i run the compressor it idles fine and pressures up but when i put it under load it stalls unless i hold in the low engine oil start up button. I have taken out the oil pressure sensor and cleaned it but it is still the same.
