Change the oil and fast! Your unit looks just like mine (SN2000) If so it takes Type F automatic transmission fluid. The Paxton is a self contained unit so the fluid will never get changed unless you do it. You are at risk of seizing the blower. There is no drain plug, so what I did was get one of those little basters (the type you buy at the grocery store to baste turkeys and what not) and attached a 12" length of vacuum hose on the end. That way you can suction the old fluid out. Now I'm familiar with the cooler you have. It is an aftermarket unit for the Paxton. This is probably what saved you. Keep that and change that fluid ASAP. Than change it every couple of months or so and the unit will last a long time. It holds less than a quart so its no big deal to change.
