Accidentally sprayed oil on body filler

I was working on the door of my pickup truck project, and I leveled an area with Rage body filler and sanded it down level. Afterwards, I wanted to sand out some scratches in the metal nearby, and as I did the DA sander sprayed some oil on the filler. I wiped off what I could and sanded it a bit, but I'm concerned about whether this will cause problems under the paint later on. I didn't attempt to use grease and oil remover on it because I was concerned that putting more chemicals on it would make it worse. Is this anything to be concerned about? What would you do in this situation? Thanks.

send it to paint and blame the painter for not grease and wax removing it. Just kidding. You should be fine. If you don't see a stain after sanding put a tiny bit of solvent on a towel and wipe the surface. You're just getting the surface, you don't want to soak it. Just don't prime it 10 minutes after. If it leeches in you want it out of there too. A little heat can help but nothing to worry about. You're not leaving a towel dunked in a can of solvent on it to soak it all up.

So... that's how things go in a body shop?! Seriously though, thanks for the reply. An instructor in the adult ed body repair class at the local community college told me to be careful with body filler because it's "like a sponge". From what you've said, it sounds like it won't soak in immediately, but would with long exposure. In my case it wasn't on there for any period of time, so probably didn't soak in.

Wipe it down good (wet)with wax and grease remover (wax on wax off method) then let it sit for and hour to dry then blow it with the blower and keep on working, it happens a lot with younger talent trying to make ends meet and using the less expensive air tools.
You shouldn't oil a DA. When it takes a sheet you get another one, when your tired of buying THEM you get a Hutchins, I haven't oiled mine in 25 years and use it about every day. its fallen off a van roof and been dropped more times than I can count. To see it would make you laugh, it looks like it survived a bomb attack but its tight, shafts straight and it sand sands true.
Next time you use oil in an air tool hold a paper shop towel over the exhaust and pull the trigger until the oil stops coming out. THEN its safe to use.

Lol, but the truth. My Hutchins sanders have really been abused and still going.

Thanks, guys, for the good tips. That's what I needed to know. You're absolutely right, I'm a novice and this is my first project stripping down to bare metal so I have a lot to learn. I appreciate your help.

Dont get me wrong, Im not saying You NEED a Hutchins but if your Da's pad wobbles or gets stuck and you have to spin the pad to get it started then get a new one. IR has a few good ones at Lowes for about 50.00 I bought one and its a great lightweight da that works perfectly. Theres just something about that heavy, old, beat up Cadillac that I love and I reach for it every single time while the new little sports car collects dust.
Most times they get gummed up inside from unfiltered or bad quality air supply containing oil and water and the fins on the motor get stuck they just need to be taken apart ,cleaned and put back together then they are like new again. Bad air causes a lot of trouble.
Everyone should look up how to make homemade air filters and get something hooked up. They are not hard to build at all.

OK, that's exactly what I have - an IR. There is a label on the air inlet that says "oil daily", so that's what I've been doing - a couple of drops in the air inlet before starting. I'll remember to run it with a paper towel as you mentioned so I don't spray anything again.

Hutchins is one of the best. But I believe Dynabrade has them beat.
