how to remove oil from air lines


Recommended Posts

Bulk of it likely got caught in air tanks, they should have drain valves. You can clean lines out using Air System Alcohol, typically it's used as an antifreeze for systems without dryers.  You can also disconnect and flush individual lines with the alcohol, using compressed air to blow the lines out. It's administered by pouring it directly into the compressor intake while the system is still building air pressure. (i.e. pour some in right after you start the truck, while it's still building air pressure.) Pumping the brakes will also mist the alcohol through the system.
