SOURCE: CRF 450 IS LEAKING OIL TROUGH CARBURETOR

Hi there

You should not have oil leaking from the carby. If you have over filled it with oil, then it may be coming from the crankcase breather and then into the airbox, and appearing to come from the carby. If you have not over filled it, then the bike may have blowby problems with compression gasses passing the rings, and in a similar manner forcing oil out the crankcase breather. Not sure about the hole in the side of the cylinder... do you have a picture? Unless its pouring out, or gets worse, I would not be too worried. If you have over filled the oil, maybe time for an oil change to get the level right.

regards
robotek

SOURCE: CRF 450 Honda leaking oil through carburetor

it sounds like your valve/rocker cover to spark plug tube seal is folded over or something. My reason for saying this is, because the only place for oil to get into the plug tube is a bad seal to the cover or the spark plug isn't tight? and that hole is for expelling liquid so it doesn't cook the plug into the head

SOURCE: kx250 gearbox/drianplug leaking

There is pressure in the crankcase when the engine is running and when you rev it up this pressure increases. Oil pressure inceases with RPM and yes the oil will get frothy under pressure.

If you suspect the drain plug is leaking then remove the plug and wrap the threads with teflon tape and reinstall the plug, this should prevent the plug from leaking.

2004 Kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan engine oil leak


Hi, Jesonyx external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the weight of his bag of "DRACHMA"
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15 minute ride and check for the leak.
