Change the oil and filter and let the engine get up to operating temperature. Replace the oil and filter again if it shows signs of dirt. if possible get one of those magnetic oil drain plugs that will pick up metal particles from the oil.

Should you be able to see the oil level in the crankcase of a Kawasaki 650SX?

no, the oil is mixed with the gas before it goes in the carb, so there should never be oil sitting in the crankcase.

What is the crankcase oil capacity for a 1980 Yamaha Snowmobile Enticer?

That is a two cycle engine and should not have a crankcase oil capacity! It should be oil injected with a reservoir jug under the hood, with should have a level line on it.

Suction in engine oil dipstick when car is on?

Vacuum should always be present in crankcase, it is provided by the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation system) pressure is what you don't want to see.

If you don't vent your crank case in your Chevy sb will it cause coolant to go to your crankcase?

No, but your crankcase should be vented anyway. If your getting coolant in the crankcase it is getting in from a bad head gasket or cracked head or bad intake manifold gaskets. If you don't fix it soon your engine will be toast.

Why spark plugs should be clean?

If there is any residue on the spark plug, it will not produce a sufficient spark for the engine ignition.

Should A 1974 Volkswagen bus be turned on to check the oil?

No, leave the engine off to check the oil. When you start the engine it sucks all the oil out of the crankcase, so none will appear on the dipstick.

What is the Purpose of PCV valve?

The purpose of the PCV valve is to regulate the flow of crankcase fumes into the intake manifold where they can be burned. Prior to 1963, cars had no PCV and used road draft tubes that just left the hydrocarbon emissions from the crankcase out into the open air. The PCV valve also has a secondary role as a check valve, to prevent flow back into the crankcase. This prevents potential ignition of the crankcase fumes, should the engine backfire. The PCV system is also crucial for to proper engine sealing. The system alleviates crankcase pressure, which can push out on seals and gaskets, contributing to oil leaks.

What should the air flow be like coming from the engine with the oil fill cap removed and the engine running on a 92 Accord EX?

None -unless the engine suffers from "blow-by" caused by excessive engine wear or non-functioning crankcase ventilation system

Will your car run when gas gets into your crankcase oil?

Yes, but you risk damaging the engine if there is any significant amount there. The oil should be changed immediately and the problem rectified.

Why should you use oil in scooter with petrol?

If you do not use oil in the engine it will destroy itself due to lack of lubrication. If it is a 2 cycle you mix 2 cycle oil with the gasoline to lubricate the engine. If it is a 4 cycle then you put the oil in the crankcase to lubricate the engine.

Loss of engine coolant?

A leak in a hose or the radiator itself. This should be obvious. Possibly a head gasket. If it is going out the exhaust, there should be white smoke, if it is going into the crankcase, the oil will look like chocolate milk.

will this leave a glue residue?

The trim kit should not leave any residue that is visible on the outside of the range. If you do have residue, a simple solvent should be able to easily remove any residue you may have problems with. Whirlpool-MK1150XP-30-in-Microwave-Trim-Kit is very well advanced equipment and will not leave glue or any residue on operation.

What problems does a milky-gray ring around the radiator indicate?

That is a sign that oil has escaped the crankcase and is now mixed with the antifreeze, you should check your engine for a blown head gasket.

No, It is contaminated with dirt.

Why does 1984 ford 300 6 cylinder create vacum in valve cover?

The engine should have a crankcase breather tube connected between the valve cover and the air cleaner. With the crankcase breather removed and a non-vented cap installed on the valve cover in its place, the PCV would create the vacuum you have.

How much oil to add 81 Yamaha XS 400?

On the right-hand side of the engine is the oil inlet. A small dipstick should be attached to the screw-on top.If the dipstick is missing, the XS 400 has a small see-though reticle on the side of the engine. When sitting on the center stand the oil should come up to at least halfway up the reticle, but can go as high as the top of the reticle. Be careful not to overfill the crankcase as excess oil will be vented via a breather value near your air filters.

Where is the PCV valve located on a 1986 Buick 25 4 cylinder engine?

Any PCV valve should have two basic characteristics which help you locate it on the engine of your car. There should be a small hose, usually harder material, comming out of the crankcase. Most of the engines I have worked on have very few holes in the crankcase since it increases the chance of a loss of pressure. Sometimes the PCV valve seats firmly into the top of the crankcase instead. The second thing to look for is a hose connecting into the side of a valve cover. In most of my cars, this is located on the back side of the valve cover (the side facing the passenger compartment) and is usually difficult to get to. There are always wires or hoses running close or covering this from sight. The PCV valve will be connected in some way to both the crankcase and the valve cover. (usually)

What could cause suction at the oil filler cap on your 1.6 petrol astra engine?

The PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) system does this. As you are European and I am North American I should say that I do not know what this system is called over there.

How do you check oil on Yamaha 1997 virago 250?

There is a sight glass on the side of the engine. With the bike sitting level, the oil should be between the two marks on the engine case beside the sight glass.

How do you remove a boken crankcase censor from your car?

There is not much of a point in sensing if your engine still has a crankcase. There is good reason for some engines to need to know the position of their crankshafts. If that is what you think you might have broken, you should ask again "How do you remove a broken crankshaft sensor from a ___(model and year of the car)?"When you re-post the question be sure that you spell the word "Sensor".

That should be the crankcase breather tube.

What crankcase oil and how much should you use in your 2005 Kawasaki kx 100?

The 2005 Kawasaki KX100 D1 - 4 series motorbikes have two separate 'crankcases.' Kawasaki specifications have the engine lubricated with a 32:1 ratio of fuel mixed with oil. The transmission crankcase is specified to use API SE through SL (and up) with JASO MA certified 10W40 oils. The D1 to D3s have transmission crankcase capacities of .65-liters and the D4 is larger at .70-liters.
