When can you ride a motorbike?

You can ride a motorbike when the time that you already the basics of driving and of course can handle the pressure while driving. Because sometimes pressure while driving may lead us to makes mistakes and may lead also us to accidents.

Why would your oil pressure drop and your engine smoke white?

Coolant mixed with the oil. the white smoke is an indication you have a blown head gasket. STOP driving this vehicle or you will destroy the engine. Must be repaired ASAP.

A condition where engine power fluctuates up and down?

Surging is the condition where the engine power fluctuates up and down with a continuous, soft jerking motion. When driving at a steady speed, the engine seems to speed up and slow down, without moving the accelerator.

2002 Trailblazer when you are at a stoplight or just in park the oil pressure gauge will sometimes go up and down from 0 to 40 and the check gauges light will come on breifly no codes pop?

Answer 1 - Fluctuating Oil Pressure Gauge IndicationI am not familiar with your particular vehicle, BUT... Usually fluctuating oil pressure during idle indicates that the engine idle speed is fluctuating and may need to be adjusted to manufacturer's specifications. Sometimes, this is an indication of wear in an engine.While the check engine warning lights are ON, indicates that during that time the engine oil pressure is below the manufacturer's recommended "safe" level.Although sustained low oil pressure can damage an engine, during idle, brief, intermittent, low oil pressure excursions do not harm the engine, but do suggest that you have the low oil pressure issue "checked out" by a qualified automotive technician.If this problem occurs at normal driving speeds, then you either are low on oil in the engine, or have other problems which could be hazardous for the health of your engine.

Mk2 VW Golf 1.8 8v gti makes noise from the dash rev-counter when driving from cold start and increases with speed but fine on idle and is gone when engine has been driven awhile?

Noise from the instruments, especially related to road speed, is usually due to a worn speedo cable. Another indication of speedo cable wear is when the speedo needle/pointer fluctuates while driving at a constant speed.

Why does oil gauge drop below 40 1997 V8 SLT 4x4 Dodge Dakota. In fluctuates while driving. Never to 0?

40 psi oil pressure is lots. As long as there is oil pressure and the oil level is good, you're good to go (within reason, if it dips under 15 for extended periods not at idle you might want to have it checked). Keep in mind also that oil pressure be higher when the engine is cold and the oil is more viscous (thicker). As the engine warms, the oil thins and pumps more easily, resulting in lower pressure. Oil pressure also fluctuates with engine speed, higher RPM's usually result in higher oil pressure. Thanks so much. That eases my mind alot.

How will the DMV know that you practiced driving with your permit?

How you do on your driving test usually gives a fair indication of whether or not someone's been practicing. Other than that, they don't.

What are the questions on a motorcyle driving test?

How much pressure do you apply to the brakes? How should you change your driving in rain?

Should you adjust the pressure in your car tires before you start on a trip or after you have been driving some time?

Tire pressure should be adjusted after a period of driving. The air in a tire will heat and expand as you drive on it. Therefore, to prevent overpressurization, tire air pressure should be adjusted only after a period of driving.
