Someone told me my bike has an oil cooled engine. What does this mean? I thought the radiator type thing on the front was to cool the oil.

TheSuzuki RG250 is water cooled with a conventional air cooled radiator (no fan assist).
Good design flows the cool water to the hottest part of the engine first.

Some manufacturers use a hybrid cooling method where engine oil is circulated between the engine case and a small radiator. Here the oil doubles as cooling liquid, prompting the name "oil-cooling." Suzuki has produced many "oil-cooled" motorcycles.

I have a ud 2000. Temperature oil light Came on. what does that mean?

some ud (nissan)engines have an oil ,cooler for the sump oil built into the engine block and others have the same thing plus an oil cooler in front of the radiator to cool the transmission oil. What ever it is means that you have to have it checked out before any real damage is done.

Where is the coolant resevoir located

A C90 is not a water cooled engine. It is a design that uses air and oil to cool the engine. There is no conventional radiator or coolant on this model. The finned cooler you see on the front of the bike is an oil cooler.

Oil in radiator

you didn't say what the car is or any other information.
I can tell you generally, oil in radiator means: engine oil cooler, transmission oil cooler, cracked engine head or cracked engine block. about the heating problem, the heater matrix is blocked with oil, the coolant in not going trough. you need to flash the cooling system including the heater matrix.
good luck

I have a '83 Honda Nighthawk that I'm having oil light problems with. Once the engine gets warmed up, usually after about 10 minutes of riding, and I come to a stop sign/light the oil light comes...

If your oil pressure light is coming, you probably have low oil pressure caused by worn engine parts. Usually low oil pressure is observed when you are idling since the pump is pumping slowly. When you raise RPM's, the pump speeds up and pressure increases. Take the bike to someone who can diagnose it properly, but it sounds like it is time for some repairs.

I need to know is my 92 suzuki gsxr750 water cooled or is it an oil cooled (if thats even poosible) an where do u add coolant at ?

GSXR 750 '92 spec is oil cooled ( If you look at the front of the motor you will see a narrow slightly curved radiator that's the oil cooler) The water cooled bikes have a radiator cap at front right side of the fairing. If you cant find a radiator cap it's definately oil cooled. Safe Riding!

Car overheating no heat coming from vents just cold air

NO heat because there is no coolant flowing throught the heaster core. Car is overheat since there is no coolant circulating in engine water jacket.
Check the coolant, if it is low, then check the oil level. If oil level is high then the head gasket is blown so coolant gets into the engine therefore there is not enough coolant to cool the engine.
If the oil level is OK and coolant level is OK then Need to check 3 following things:
-Bad thermostat is not open causing coolant stagnant then engine overhet.
-Bad water pump is not pumping coolant so there is no coolant circulating to disipate the heat.
-Bad radiator blocks the coolant flow from top to bottom radiator.
Good luck.

Oil/air cooled?

the radiator would have cluttered this sleek bike and would have gotten away from the scheme of the bike. water cooling is definately a good thing, but is more expensive, and the price of this bike is very reasonable. a good oil cooler can drop the operating temp as much as 100 degrees over an air only bike. having said that, there is a multitude of bikes with thousands and thousands of trouble free miles that have neither. comes down to preference, and or geography.
