    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.

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!

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.

When i start my 91 ultra oil comes out of the vent filter under center of bike. Just started doing this after sitting 2 months,


Regrettfullly, this is a common occurance on any H-D motorcycle in which the oil tank is mounted higher than the oil pump. When the bike is allowed to sit for a while, the oil will seep past the check ball valve in the oil pump and build up in the engine. Harley changed the oil pump in their 1999 and later Twin Cam engines because of this. When the oil settles in the bottom end, we call it "oil sumping". When the engine is started, the scavenge gears simply cannot pump the oil back into the oil tank quickly enough and some of it is blown out the crankcase vent tube. Make sure that when your bike sits for a long period of time, do not add oil to the tank as long as you can see the oil level on the dipstick. If the oil checks a bit low, it may be in the engine cases. If you "top it off", it'll blow it all out the crankcase vent. Once the engine clears itself out, this should stop. If not, you'll have to have the check ball "reseated" in the oil pump.

Good Luck

Oil is blowing out of tube into filter housing on my 89 Harly soft tail. Bike hasent been started in awhile.is there a check valve? Any info. Thanks.


Yes there is a check valve but it's in the oil pump. This is a problem with the pre-2000 Softails. The oil tank is mounted higher in the frame than the oil pump on the engine. When the bike is allowed to sit for an extended period of time, the oil seeps past the check valve ball in the oil pump and settles in the engine cases. We call this "oil sumping". When the engine is restarted, the oil pump scavenger gears simply cannot pump the excess oil back to the oil tank fast enough and it is blown out of the crankcase vent tube. Since the EPA requires that vented crankcase pressure be cycled through the engine to be burned, the crankcase vent tube is connected to the backside of the carburetor backing plate. There are baffles in the tube but they only work for oil mist. The results is that your air filter gets filled with oil when you restart the engine after a lenghty downtime. Most riders will disconnect the tube from the backside of the backing plate and plug the hole in the backing plate. Then they install a simple hose about six inches long or so to the nipple that comes out of the engine cases and run it back towards the rear of bike underneath it. Some guys will put a small crankcase breather on the end of the hose as well. This way, the oil will go on the ground and you can clean it up. I usually slide a shallow pan under the bike before restarting one that has sat for a while. Avoid "topping off the oil tank" before restarting a bike that has sat for a while. Check the oil level and as long as the oil is visible on the dipstick, restart the engine and check the oil level when the engine reaches operating temperature. Harley improved on this problem in 1993 when they went to the "head breathers" where the crankcase vents are located in the cylinder heads.

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

My bike is blowing oil out of the vent tube,


Hi
Either you have over filled the oil or the crankcase is pressurising due to blowing past the piston rings or valve seals

I tried to start my harley but it would not run, than oil started coming out of the vent tube (alot of oil) what would cause this and is this an easy fix. Thanks


How long since last start? If long time, oil from vent tube is practically normal. Make sure you check oil level and add if needed. Also, the gas is probably gone bad, which will impede starting after a long time.

Might be time for a rebuild. You need to check the crankcase breather to make sure it is not stopped up, if it is good might be time for a re ring.

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
