I didn't anticpate any freezing temperatures and used Pennzoil 30w when I changed mine.

I'm pretty sure it's low oil. But the question is what oil was used when it was last changed.

Onan doesn't recommend mixing oils.

Yup

Low oil

A few syringe squirts of Onamax 15-40 did the trick.

Problem with Onan Generator

I'm guessing that Onamax oil is expensive, like everything Onan?

Tractor Supply Co.'s Traveller brand of 15W-40 oil is service rating CJ-4/SN ( high service rating ) and is usually at a very good price.

Just passing that along if you'd like a very good oil at a reasonable price.

Thanks PaulnGina,

Actually it was more reasonable than I thought. $6 quart plus tax.

Got to looking..... TSC's regular price is $3.49/qt.

(Wow!!!! If you need a large amount for a diesel engine, TSC has a 5-gallon pail on sale for $29.99!!!!)
