Default Vacuum Pump Oil Change.

If my pump is gurgling but still pulling a vacuum, is it too much oil or too little?

Does your pump have a sight window? If you have too much oil you usually get oil blowing out of the pump, if you are running clean you should be good there.

When is the last time you changed oil. If the oil is thicken that will cause a problem.

Change the oil with the correct oil.
