SOURCE: oil in coolant on a 1981 honda goldwig

do you have oil in your coolant ? if so id say head gasket , be extremly unuasual for the head to crack on a goldwing, id put it down to head gasket , but while its appart id have it skimmed and when its being skimmed if there half decent company doing it the will tell you if its cracked when the pressure test it , head skim will cost about £45 from most companys as its only a small head on your bike ( compared to car heads which cost a bit more )
hope this is of help to you
kind regards

SOURCE: small oil leak around head, could I just tighten

Sorry, but the fix is a new head gasket. Tightening the head bolts is asking for trouble. If it's just a small leak I would consider just living with it and cleaning it off occasionally.

SOURCE: I need to know how

If it is on the right hand side of the bike then yes. Remove the clutch cable by undoing the adjustment nuts on the engine side of the cable and unhooking from the lever. Remove the nut on the gearshift pedal and pull of the pedal. Remove the dipstick. Undo all the nuts on the cover, and remove it. Locate the new gasket on the engine. There are 2 locating dowels so it should not have diffyculty staying in place. Replace the cover and clutch cable and readjust the clutch cable.
On the left hand side of the engine is a bit more tricky as the oil is not leaking past the gasket on the cover itself. There are 2 places where it can leak from. One is behind the drive sprocket. Remove the cover. Undo the nut on the sprocket. Bend back the tabs on the locking plate and remove the sprocket. Drive a self tapping screw into the shaft seal and pull it out with a pair of pliers. Drive a new on back in place. Also see this :
If the leak is from behind the alternator you will have to remove the magneto. This is diffycult as you need a puller to get the flywheel off the crank. Then the alternator assembly and only then will you be able to reach the shaft seal. This can be removed as per the previous link.

SOURCE: over torqued and snapped off the head of the oil

Is the remainder of the bolt still in the threads??? Get a good bolt extractor to remove it.
If the remainder has gone in the engine, if you can't get at it with a magnet (get it to the hole and thread it out) you will have to get the engine split.

SOURCE: i had my head ported out and now it leaks oil out where my exhaust mounts to the head is it safe to run my bike like that

It is not normal, The oil is coming from the engine lubrication system and it sounds as if you have not renewed the rocker cover gasket when the engine was rebuilt. Check the torque settings on the head bolts and that no oil is getting into the coolant.

Why can't i stop the oil leak on the lower bolt on the waterpump

Need to know year and make of vehicle,but oil should not be coming from water pump mounting bolts ,check to see if oil is leaking from above the water pump .it may be just accumulating on water pump .steam clean engine and check, you could remove the bolt with oil around it take a mirror and check to see if the hole goes into crank case or if it's a blind hole ,if it goes all the way threw oil is running down into hole around threads of bolt and out to where you see it , when you replaced water pump do you remember seeing anything on the bolts (RTV, blue or orange color lock tight, if so remove bolt put RTV on bolt and reinstall it(if you decide to use lock tight do NOT use red the bolt will not come out ever again, make sure you use blue lock tight!!!

Coolant leaking around new installed head gasket on a 83 honda gl1100 motorcycle. How do I fix it? Is starting it without coolant a good option?

You might have installed the head gasket wrong (Upside down or backward) or put the left head on the right side, You need to pull that head again and check that all the water holes line up with the gasket between the block and head, Also you should only use oil on the head bolts, the moly will allow the bolts to back off over time.

I have an 1981 honda goldwing and on both sides of the crankcase there are bolts and they both are leaking oil at the bolts i tryed to tighten them but don't wan't to bust the bolts off it still leaks do i...

No, try this first, take the bolt out, use copper spacers to bolt size threads to fit and tighten it slowly until you feel it may not go anymore without forcing it. Mark a 1/2 white line on the bolt connecting it to 1/2 line on crankcase wall. Run the bike and if still leaks tighten it 1/8 at a time until it stop leaking or reach 1/2 turn from tightening start. Or use pipe thread tapes (normally white and very flimsy) near bolt top (abt 5mmfrom bolt head), wrap 2-3 times, put bolt back in again and tighten, ensuring tape goes in between thread and crank body tightly. That can stop the leaking.

Hi what is the head torque on a 2002 honda civic

Dont forget to apply clean engine oil to the threads of each bolt for proper torquing. Then finger tighten. Then

    1. Tighten the cylinder head bolts to their final torque specification in 4 steps. Use a crisscross sequence starting with the bolts at the middle of the head and working toward the outer bolts as follows: Step 1: Tighten each bolt to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).Step 2: Tighten each bolt to 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm).Step 3: Tighten each bolt to 49 ft. lbs. (67 Nm).Step 4: Retighten only the 2 center bolts to 49 ft. lbs. (67 Nm).
    1. Step 1: Tighten each bolt to 14 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
    2. Step 2: Tighten each bolt to 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm).
    3. Step 3: Tighten each bolt to 49 ft. lbs. (67 Nm).
    4. Step 4: Retighten only the 2 center bolts to 49 ft. lbs. (67 Nm).

    91 Honda civic is leaking oil from a sensor located on the head is not the oil sensor the location of this sensor is on the left side of the head facing the fire wall

    If the engine has an overhead cam it could be the cam position sensor.If the threads are leaking remove it wrap teflon tape on the threads and re-install it. If oil is leaking threw the sensor replace it.
