#12345982 Is the PN for the Supercharger oil. It won't be low, unless you have a leak, you will change it because it'* dirty. For you Kobrak, you will need 2 bottles.

The only way to know if it'* low is to open up the fill plug (I can't remember the size of the allen wrench that fits though).

1) Open fill plug
2) Pump out old oil - I use the top of a spray bottle like Billboost37 as well.
3) Add new oil up to the bottom thread of the fill hole.
4) Reinstall fill plug


SUPER easy to do

part number_12345982
I used a plastic syringe..I obtained this syringe at a night club. It had a shot of liquor in it, I kept it as a souvenir..Never thought I would use it for pumping out SC oil but, it worked great..I just put a hose from a fish tank at the end of the syringe to make it longer..It sucked out about 7 ounces of the dirty oil in about 5 tries..The syringe is part of my tools now.

hmmm, I think I should probably do it to both of my SSEi'*...

the '93 has MAYBE 15K miles on it since a brand new supercharger, and I don't know if the oil has ever been changed on the '03

Moved to Forced Induction (where all supercharger related topics belong).

Supercharger oil changes are covered in Techinfo. Link at the top of the page.
