It holds 2.3 liters of oil,
but you should drain the old oil first for best performance.
the drain plug is on the left side
it is also a good idea to change the air filter,
but if its not too old you can soak it in gas,
when the filter gets old it falls apart.
i have an 85 xr500.

Yamaha 115 4 stroke alarm sounds when boat is in neutral. forward or reverse no alarm. oil is good and water out of the spout.

Which alarm is sounding? Oil or overheating? You need to figure this out first! ... Is the water coming out of the spout high pressure or can you hold your finger over it and stop the flow? If you can stop the flow, you have a bad water pump impeller. If not... you are probably getting good water pressure. If your oil tank is full, the low level sensor is dirty or bad..this will cause the alarm..Fix each of these and repost.

Le Crueset 1.8-Qt. Enamel on steel whistling teakettle u-shaped metal piece fell out

There are two parts to the whistle - the hinged whistle bit and the black base that is attached to the spout. They are joined by a pin that passes through the base and through a bracket that is fixed above the spout, and through the bottom of the arm on the hinged whistle. Remove the pin - it is a push fit - so you need a rod of the same diameter. It will then all come to pieces. The U shaped metal spring sits in the bracket on the spout - the open end and the slope on the spring to the top. Then put the bits back together and replace the pin! This is tricky but do-able as all the holes have to line up. You need to have plenty of light to see what is going on. Once aligned the pin goes back in okay but don't try to force it. If it doesn't go in your alignment isn't right.

I have replaced the guts to my delta shower two years ago. It now is holding a lot of water in the spout before it hits the shower head. Is there a problem with the shower head or do the insides need to be...

Lets start by removing the shower head from the chrome pipe on the wall and check the screen filter to make sure you are getting full flow. if this dose not cure problem then lets look at the diverter it a push button on the wall plate or a pull down spout diverter? if it's the push button it may have a bad paddle and needs to be replaced. If it's on the spout i am leaning towards the shower head. hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.

I do not have the manual want to change oil. Not sure how much oil to put in

Most small engines take 3/4 to 1 qt of oil for an oil change. Best wat to solve this is to drain oil into a pan w/spout & pour back into an empty oil bottle. This should give you some idea as to how much is needed.

I have a 1999 323I BMW and i think i need antifreeze but i'm not sure. A light came on and it is a picture of a tank with liquid in it with a spout...i'm not sure what that icon means on my dashboard. ...

either is antifreeze or is the oil light.
cooling tank is in the front of the car. look for a fan, the cooling tank is infront of the fan. open the cap (make sure the car is cold). and see if there is water or antofreez in it. add as you needed. also follow a tube from the side of the filler neck. you should see a container, that should be a over flow container. fill that to the line on the container. close the cap. and make a 90 degree turn. it should be tight.
the oil is on the button of the engine. you should see a dip stick with a color handle near the engine. pull it out and use a paper towel clean it, put it back and pull it out again. take a look at the tip of the stick. there should a marking indicating where the oil should be. half qt of oil if dip stick shows half way between the mark, and full qt if the dip stick indicated below the marker. fill the engine (filler is on top of the engine.) with oil.
