    Vent line should be on top of the tranny.A drain plug should be on the bottom of the engine towards the rear.If I were you I would drain the engine oil too and start from clean oil.Engine oil may be both trany and engine.I am not familiar with this model but most 4stroke bikes run the same oil in the same case.Now a 2stroke you will have a seperate drain for the tranny on the rear bottom .
    Hope this helps.

I have oil in my coolant resevoir

Hmm try changing the oil, flush and fill the radiator.Then see if the contaminant comes back into the resevoir. If you have a cracked, block/head or a blown head gasket the envoy would have white or blue exhaust coming out and would be overheating since oil retains heat. Some other tell tale signs are little steam will come out of your oil filler when u open it.Your oil looks like chocolate milk instead of regular oil when u check it. Try a compression or a leak-down test to find out if your head gasket is blown. Pull the spark plugs see how they look.

(Contaminated water from rust or mineral? dont use tap water when mixing with the anti freeze)

Hope all this helps you

Ticking & white smoke after replaced intake gasket

Sounds like coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Potential causes in order of significance: Intake manifold gasket (might not have been done right), Head gasket(s), cracked cylinder head, or, cracked engine block. Check the oil. If it looks like chocolate milk it means the coolant and oil are mixing

04 chevy impala has white smoke coming from the exhaust but no leaking

white smoke is caused by water or coolant entering cylinders, if in over flow it will look like a chocolate milk shake. check on oil dipstick to see if you can see traces of water or anti - freeze in the oil. if you see white smoke coming from tail pipe that smoke means that your car has a leaking cylinder-head gasket or a cracked head gasket. If there is just a leak in the gasket, the problem should be relatively easy and inexpensive to fix, but if the problem is a cracked head gasket, chances are the repair will be a lot more complicated and expensive. If the problem is a leaking head-gasket cylinder you will see white smoke, because the faulty gasket is allowing air and fuel to enter the cooling system. As this mixture burns, white smoke is produced and exits through your tailpipe. If you are familiar with the location of the cylinder head gasket you can check it yourself, otherwise take the car to your mechanic and ask him to check the gasket for damage. may not be but just check it out! if its water or anti-freeze, you will smell a sweet smell coming from tailpipe. good-day ! most of the costs today are labor which is very expensive.

The car is not driving, blowing white smoke, and shaking very bad? So what should do

white smoke (alot) usually means water/antifreeze getting into firing chamber- head gasket(most likely) or a cracked head/block (less likely)- check oil dipstick- if oil is "milky" definite leak somewhere

White smoke on exhaust

As a general rule, white smoke can mean coolant leaking into the combustion cylinder(s). Check your coolant level, see if it's still full, or if it's discolored (like oil is mixing into the water). Check the color of the oil, see if it looks like chocolate milk. If you're losing coolant, I'd say it's possible a head gasket, cracked/warped head, etc.

Make sure it really is white smoke -- if it's "blue smoke", it can simply be burning oil -- valve guides, piston rings. Or it was way overfilled with oil and the excess pressure is forcing the oil past the rings.

A compression test would be a good idea, as would a trip to a mechanic to check it out.

How do u kno if your head gasket are cracked

If you have a blown head gasket the best way to tell is check the oil and see if it has water in it. It will e milky or gray. Also, check the radiator and see if there is oil in it. This isnt a problem to ignore, you wil want to address it immediately.

Pop noise with thick white smoke from front end,

sounds like you might have a cracked cylinder and oil puddled up inside over night and when you started blew out through the exhaust. White smoke means smoke means gas ,and blue smoke means both..if you cracked a water jacket your oil will look like a bubbly milk shake.....take a look at your oil.

Everyone automatically assumes that oil and water mixing means a blown head gasket or cracked engine block. Of course common sense is usually not that common. Oil in coolant is a different problem than coolant in oil. The former is a low pressure leak, and could indicate only an intake manifold gasket. It could also be an early or small head gasket leak. Coolant in oil is usually a cracked block or torn head gasket, and has concomitant symptoms of white exhaust smoke and milky oil on dipstick. If you replace the head gasket and the problem persists, an intake gasket could have fixed the problem.
