What could it be?

Please have someone check the transmission fluid with the dipstick.
If there is no fluid on the dipstick, you have likely "damaged" the transmission.
If there is, smell the fluid. If it smells "burned", the transmission may need to be rebuilt.
Now, start the motor and check the transmission fluid level.
Your owner's manual in the glove box will tell you whether the motor needs to be running or not, almost all the time it must be.
The transmission also needs to be "hot", which is having the motor run for 10 minutes.
Again, check the owner;'s manual for the kind of transmission fluid you can use.
Once in a while the dipstick will have that information stamped on it.
Add a pint of fluid at a time until the transmission dipstick reads full.
See if that fixes your problem.
If not, you will need a transmission replacement or overhaul.
Be prepared for big expense.
God bless your efforts.

Do you need to lift the motor to get the old pan out on a 98 fxdwg

HI Don, thanks to the Harley Gods the answer is no. Just remove the dipstick, the oil filler spout, and the dipstick cover. Un-bolt and lower oil pan, you might have to use ball allens to facilitate removal. Good luck

Does someone know how to shut off the electrical plug at the bottom of a v-twin briggs and stratton. I think this is causing my motor to smoke bad out the exaust. thanks

Are you refering to the solonoid on the bottom of the carb? That is an anti backfire device. It will not cause the motor to smoke. If it has failed the motor will not run; the solonoid prevents fuel from entering the main jet.
There are several things that wil cause a motor to smoke. First check for fuel in the crankcase. To check for fuel in the crankcase, it is hard to see on the dipstick, remove the dipstick and VERY CAREFULLY away from anything flammable and away from the motor hold a lighter to the dipstick. If the dipstick lights it has fuel on it, a lighter will not ignite oil. Blow out the flame and wipe the dipstick clean with a rag before inserting back into motor. A worn needle or debris in the needle will cause the carb to flood. It will fill the crankcase and muffler with fuel. To cure this you will need to rebuild the carb and change the oil. Installing a shut off valve in the fuel line will prevent this in the future. After the service has been done the unit may smoke for 5-10 minutes while it burns off the fuel in the exhaust.
Burning oil indicates stuck rings, overfilled oil, or worn valve guide seals ( valve guide seals will smoke on start up then clear up).
Also leaking rocker covers will drip oil on the exhaust and burn off.

How much oil does XR 400 2004 model take

If you are just changing the oil 1.8 quarts.
If you are changing the oil and filter 1.9 quarts.
If you disassembled the motor 2.3 quarts.
Use only JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Remember to run the motor for 5 minutes before checking the oil level at the dipstick. The frame neck is where the dipstick is located. If you check the level with out running the motor you will read no oil on the dipstick and will probably end up overfilling the engine with oil.

How do you change the oil on a 1985honda aspencade goldwing?

Center stand the motorcycle.First place your pan under the oil filter cover under the front right corner of the machine. Using a six point socket loosen the filter cover bolt and remove the cover. Dump out the oil in the cover being careful to save the spring and the washer that is stuck to the filter.Many Goldwings have lost there washer in a previous oil change , if lost replace the washer. If you desire change the o-ring on the bolt and the o-ring on the cover. Put the bolt back into the cover and place the spring first over the bolt, then the washer, then the filter , so the spring is pushing the filter against the engine. Put the new filter onto the motorcycle and snug up the cover bolt just enough so the oil wont leak out. Do Not Over Tighten The Cover Bolt. Now place the pan under the right rear corner of the motor. You will find a horizontal bolt near the bottom right rear corner of the main block of the motor. It will have an aluminum or copper sealing washer. Take off the bolt and let the oil drain out. When the oil is finished draining , put the bolt back in with a new sealing washer , if needed , and snug up the bolt just enough so that it does not leak or come out. Again do not over tighten the bolt. Now pour in the new oil through the dipstick hole. Be sure you use JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. You will need 4 quarts but you may have a partial quart left over. The quantity is something between 3.4 and 4 quarts. Run the bike and double check the oil level with your dipstick so you do not over fill.

I'm feeling stupid. I can't seem to find the oil dipstick on my wife's 02 Honda Shadow ACE Deluxe. Please open my eyes for me.

It is on the right side of the motor next to mufflers or it doesn't have a dipstick it has a glass window on the left side of the motor close to the bottom of machine.
