The left side is the ENGINE oil fill. The right side oil fill plug is THE TRANSMISSION oil. There are 2 separate drain plugs also. Honda sells an engine oil with moly HP4M that you should not put in the trans because it will cause clutch slippage. The best performance and protection for your bike is full synthetic engine oil with a dedicated gear oil in the transmission. Get yourself a manual so you will not be as confused

The engine has two seperate sides which require oil... your owners manual should break it down step by step, if you dont have one id advise strongly to get one, but if not the right side has a 8mm bolt, remove it with the bike in a perfectly vertical position... if oil comes out its full... along with the dipstick on the left side, its pretty self explanitory on how much, just dont put too much in or you could blow seals and you will lose a slight amount of power... both sides use the same oil so you dont have to worry about clutch oil and all that ****... just use motorcycle 10w 30 or whatever... strogly advise hondas line of oil specially tuned for honda engines. keep up on it and that engine will last longer than you expect. have fun and be safe.

This Engine Shares The Oil In The Crankcase With The Transmission . Put Oil In AT Fill Cap , Check Level At Dip Stick. Also This Engine Has An Oil Filter. Don't Forget To Change It . It Should Be Under A Cover That Has 3 8MM Bolts. Use New O-Ring Here.

    Where is the oil plug for my 2004 MTD mower. Model no. 12A-998Q795

    Hello, The 2004 MTD Pro walkbehind doesn't have an oil plug per say. I am guessing you wish to perform an oil change. The oil filler cap/tube assembly is also the drain, as is with many walk-behind mowers. ( Here's a link of the engine breakdown showing the parts: )

    Make sure the gas has been drained/run dry - this will prevent accidental spills during this proceedure. Next, for safety, disconnect the spark plug wire. At this point, I usually have a couple of blocks handy to place the side wheels ( the ones on the side with the oil dipstick ) On your model it should be the right hand side. just at the edge of the fan cover cowling. between the blocks, have a container ready to catch the oil, I use one of those square margarine tubs as the sides are low - but any suitable container will do. Bear in mind, it should hold about 1/2 to one litre of oil. Be carefull not to tip the machine with the spark plug down - this will cause the air filter to become contaminated and lead to poor starts or not at all. ( If this happens, replace the air filter.) Now jus tip so the spiggot is over the container and allow to drain. Tip back into normal upright position and fill to propper mark. Simple Tip: save any oil containers - they come in handy for the used oil and are easy to take to the hazardous waste disposal.

    Hope it goes smoothly!

    CRF 150 Honda 2007 oil change

    Hi Niven

    There are also 2 separate drains/fillers one for the transmission and the othe for the crankcase . The measure is 620 ml per side, although some guys run up to 700 ml on the transmission. 10W-40 is the correct weight for the engine side. On the trans side a Transmission specific oil in an 80W or 85W grade. Maxima Extra full synthetic is the best oil you can buy for the engine. Maxima MTL is the best for transmissions.
