Default Superchager Oil

1994 SSEi, TR 55'*, CAI, custom painted rear drums and engine compartment, JL subwoofer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
I took a look at my supercharger oil this weekend and found it to be a light creamy brown color with a bad odor. I am guessing that it needs to be changed...

I looked in the manual to see what type of oil i needed to use and all I get is a GM part number.

So... What kind of oil do I put in it? And is there a good way to go about draining the old oil?

You use that GM part number and nothing else.

There are some tips and tricks in the TECHINFO link at the top of the page.

(I'll move your topic to the Forced Induction section for you)

The way your oil looks and smells is perfectly normal. Our supercharger oil is a synthetic blend made from animal fats. That is why under heat and stress it tends to cook, thus the color and the odor. They should sell the supercharger oil at your local dealer for $6 to $8 a bottle, for the series 1 you only need one bottle. The smell is bad at first, but after changing it on a couple, I have grown to love the smell.

You can remove the old supercharger oil by using a spray bottle nozzle. Put the stem of it in the supercharger and squeeze the trigger until you get all of it out. Spray it into a plastic bottle or container. Something you can put a cap on!! lol
