My bike engin was making some noise, so brought to the notice of the company engineer. he said that some head are gone and need to be replaced. after doing the replacement oil started comming out from the engin. Now they have even replaced the top part of the engin and the connecting Rod, but the noise is there and the oil still leaks.
Question: do i need to do anything so that i dont get the problem of oil leak and my spark plug going off very often?

Re: Oil leaking from engin
Thats your Engine head that they replaced,but i don't think if it was required too early. May be the crank-piston conneecting rod was displaced but that also hampers piston n rings.
Anyway the oil leakage is a very usual problem. May be your oil seals are damaged and need to be replaced.
Hope this helps you out.. :)

Where is it leaking from ? Shifter, chain gear shaft, case, case to cylinder ? Does the engine still run the same ? Is it under powered now ? Is the engine making any noises now that it didn't before the hill ? Is the engine lacking power now ? Other than an oil leak what makes you think you screwed it up for good ? Most engines/transmissions at some point will always leak oil. That doesn't mean they are screwed up. It normally means a seal or gasket is worn . They are designed to do that with time and wear.
You need a gasket. Don't we be the bearer of bad news, but I think you have to drop the engine, one that bike to get to that gasket about 750 dollars you could try to stop leak. Just make sure it's good quality
I'm going to guess at this one since I can't hear it. I'm going to guess a blown head gasket. People describe the noise in different ways. Some say it sounds like a squeak and I think it sounds like a whistle. Let the bike sit overnight and get stone cold. Before you try to start the bike, pull the spark plug wires off the plugs but leave the plugs in the heads. Open the throttle wide open but leave the enricher off. Turn on the ignition and press the starter button. Is the noise louder when you do this or is it louder when the engine is warm. If it's a head gasket, it should be louder when the engine is cold.
The only thing on the upper left side of the engine is the rocker arms and valve springs. There is a possibility that your friend got the center portion of the rocker box cover just a bit too close to one of the valve springs and it's hitting the center cover. Take a screwdriver and use it like a stethoscope and see if you can locate the noise. Feel the "alignment" of the lower, center, and upper rocker box covers. If the center and top cover are not in their proper position, this could be the problem.
The water pump seal is maybe gone.This would allow water into the trans.Get it checked and also that the bearing hasn,t spun in its location.This may cause the color change.Being a grey color,it may indicate aluminium in the oil.This may be the spun bearing turning in the housing.With what you wrote,I would get these things looked at.I hope this helps you
new engines burn oil until the rings wear in, if you were riding it hard and never noticed oil gone , possible damage. i would top up oil and keep and eye. if its still under warranty i would suggest dealer look at it
You may have nearly blown the head gaskets, causing some oil to leak out of the cylinder heads so the gaskets will need replaced. Don't try to start the engine again as this make the situation worse because it has lost the pressure it needs to work properly. Since this pressure is gone the whole engine is running too fast than it needs to do causing it too get really hot and the heat generated from the engine is escaping from the leaky head gasket also making it become hotter.
do you have oil in your coolant ? if so id say head gasket , be extremly unuasual for the head to crack on a goldwing, id put it down to head gasket , but while its appart id have it skimmed and when its being skimmed if there half decent company doing it the will tell you if its cracked when the pressure test it , head skim will cost about £45 from most companys as its only a small head on your bike ( compared to car heads which cost a bit more )
hope this is of help to you
