    I just put a new engine in my bike and yesterday it was running fine but today I have got it to start 2 times with hot start but as soon as I give it throttle or let off of the hot start it dies and oil is leaking out of the breather line on top of the head cover.

RE: ABOVE is what I'm reading @ the fixya Site @
http://www.fixya.com/PostAnswer.aspx?thid=1695323&prdid=986097&ctgid=391 so.......

Is your Yamaha a 2000 or 2001?
Did You try to start it several times, then it kicked in a little, then a little more, then
started spitting oil and won't even start?
Has it been sitting for quite some time?
Did you put new gas in it?
If so...................................................
Check the OIL and replace if needed..........................................
Put in a can of high test GAS...Spend at least $10.00!.................
Spray a lot of Starter Fluid ($3) into the Air Intake........................
Crank Engine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

When you get it running, IF IT'S STILL BLOWING OIL .............................
Add a can of CRANKCASE SEAL'S LEAKS (less than $10) for conditioning
the seals............................................and......................................................

NEVER USE YEAR OLD GAS AGAIN AND ADD FUEL CLEANER AT
EVERY OIL CHANGE!

I have vapour / steam coming out of my oil dipstick tube on my 1.8 diesel Ford Galaxy, is this to do with a faulty / worn pcv unit. Would this also contribute to poor starting if the valve is faulty?


The PCV allows one way flow and vents pressure (gases) from the engine and sends them to the intake side of the air breather for re-introduction into the air intake system of the engine.
A non-working or stopped up PCV can cause a build up of pressure, which must vent somewhere. The oil dip stick is often the choice, especially if there is not a tight seal at the top of the tube.
White smoke or steam/ vapor usually means water is entering the internal workings of the engine. Head gasket leaks, cracked heads, and cracked blocks are the common source of such entry. Also water leaking into a cylinder will cause hard or poor starting as the piston is working against the volume displacement of the water. Upon cranking any water so leaking will be exited through the exhaust system and leave the vehicle as a white vapor out of the tailpipe.
Considering that most diesel engines have some "blow by", some water may be expelled out the PCV circuit.

There appears to be some kind of breather tube (?) going back into the top of the transaxle of my kubota g1800 tractor and is blowing hyd fluid out around where it attaches. what might be my problem?


if it is a breather tube and pressure is building up , it is possible that there is oil in the tube and combined with dust it has gone solid and is blocking the breathe
check for any low areas of the hose that might retain oil

How can I stop oil from coming from my dipstick?


Depends on the cause.
Blow-by is when oil blows by the rings in the cylinders into the combustion chambers or compression blows by the rings into the crankcase. It can also be caused when too much pressure builds up in the crankcase because of a venting problem.
So blow-by can cause smoke out the tailpipe from oil burning with gasoline, or oil collecting in the air cleaner, or blowing out a seal or other place like your dipstick tube.
If it is caused by worn piston rings, the rings have to be replaced.
If it is a venting problem, you need to open up the vent, like the PCV valve or the air intake port.
If you remove the cap where you add oil and there is a vacuum when the engine is running, the venting system is working. If oil blows out the hole, there is too much pressure in the crankcase.

Oil blows out of crankcase tube thats hooked to carb.


This tube is the crankcase vent tube and two possible things here #1 the engine is worn out and has a lot of compression gasses going past the piston rings into the crankcase.
#2 the engine oil in the crankcase is too full

Have oil spitting out of carb and dip stick fill tube just started doing that on 19 hp kohler courage


if engine is not overfull you have bad rings on piston have to take in to have it done may end up short blocking it witch is cheaper to do replace rings cheaper by far 200.00 per cylinder

Oil coming out of crankcase vent tube


I'd quicker think piston ring blow by the piston thus compression leaking / blowing into the engines base.

1988fxstc. Oil is blowing out of what looks like a oil tank vent hose that ends down by the rear tire. This is not the drain hose, but looks like a venting hose that is open near the rear tire. Anyone...


Without seeing the bike, I would guess that this is the crankcase vent. Originally, the crankcase vent tube came up from behind the oil pump and went to the backside of the air filter. A lot of owners changed the routing of this hose due to oil being blown into the air filter. They simply remove the metal part of the tube and replaced it with a short open ended hose running back and ending just forward of the rear tire.

As for the oil blowing out of the tube, it depends on how much oil blows out of the tube. If it's just a mist that will sometimes coalese into a droplet, this is about normal. But, if it's a steady drip or flowing oil, this is not right.

If the mist is heavy, this could be caused by excessive blowby on the rings creating high crankcase pressures. The use of synthetic oil should not increase the blowby unless the rings are in poor shape, then it will. The use of synthetic oil seems to aggrevate any minor leak turning it into a much larger leak.

If the oil is coming out in a steady stream or pumping the oil out of the engine, you proabably have sheared a key in the scavenge gears of the oil pump and it's not pumping the oil back into the oil tank.

Now there is a vent hose on the oil tank but it should be routed to a fitting on the crankcase that is located just above and slightly behind the top of the oil pump.

Good Luck

Oil blowing out of trans breather tube


hi 81 yamaha i am concerned about the fuel smell coming out with the oil. could be the carbs flooding filling your crankcase with fuel? if not it sounds like you have blow by which would cause your crank case to be slightly pressured. this is caused by worn piston rings. do not plug your crank vent. if you leave your vent open install small filter to stop dirt from entering jim

2006 Suzuki DRZ400S oil leak from bottom of air cleaner.


Often times there is a engine breather tube that has to do with emissions that runs from the engine to the air filter breather box. This tube can in some cases blow oil through it when the engine is run hard. Make sure you're not over filling the engine with oil when you change it because this will cause the oil to "blow off" the excess and the air box is where it often goes.
There is also another possibility, are you using too much oil in your air filter after you clean it? This too is a common cause for oil in the air box, if that's the case I would not worry about it.
The last case scenario is one you don't want, that would be washed out rings which cause blow by and that in turn causes the engine to blow oil out of the breather tube which I'm confident it venting into the air box.
Please let me know if these resolve your question and if not give me more details and I will be happy to assist you further.
Regards,
RSelvy
