Sounds as if the float is not closing all the way and allowing gas to keep flowing threw the carb and is sitting in the cylinder and passing the rings and getting into the oil. try adjusting the float level. This is a command problem.

I have a 1989 harley hugger we changed the oil and now when you start it the oil cap blew off and blew out oil what is wrong

Too much oil in the system now, Remove a half quart, see what happens. This is common on the Softails and Full Dressers too, when the recommended amount of oil is used. Trial and error through the years have dictated the use of either a 1/2 quart or more, less oil.

Hope this helps.

My car moves forward but when i shifted to backward, car doesn't move. I checked oil level, it's very less. Is replenishing the oil will solve the problem? Are there any reasons other than oil level?

Warm the car engine.Change through all the gears and finish in N.Check the transmission oil level.If it needs trans oil,add the oil into the tube that the trans fluid dipstick is located.The gears wont work if the trans oil level is low.Probably a good idea to find the oil leak.I hope this helps

I have a 2003 navigator with 110k on it i changed the trands filter and trans oil but it shifts in to 1st gear at 4000rpms and after thats its fine till i slow down and the trans oil dissapearing with no...

It worked fine before? It's possible you didn't get the filter installed properly, is the sealing ring in place? Or, you could have jarred some crud loose when changed the filter. Do you have any idea how much fluid you got out of the trans, I usually measure the waste oil so I know about how much to put back in. Try shifting it manually through the gears a couple times sometimes that helps. If the fluid is not running on ground, the only other place it can go, is in the radiator. Good Luck!
