Question about Honda CRF 230 F Motorcycles

1 Answer

Poor performance ever since i added oil

I just added about 1 1/2 quarts of oil (10W 30) and ever since it hasnt been running right... speed got slower and revving doesnt sound like it used to... i can definitely feel a difference expecially in 1st and 2nd gear.

what gives... any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    im sure that filter and air cleaner needs replacing but the funny thing was it was running fine just before i added the oil

    no it does not backfire... the big difference that i notice after adding oil is when i throttle up it lost that power that i used to get.

    Sounds like the carbs needs to be cleaned out really well. First try some carb cleaner, then if you need to remove the carb and clean it that way. The ports might be clogged. And when you added more oil that make the motor work alittle harder and now you are having this problem

How much engine oil should i put in a 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage? Also, what is the best brand oil and oil grade for it on a hot climate?


im pretty sure this model holds 4 & 1/2 quarts, although, i would put 4 quarts in it for starters and check the level, i recommend castrol 10w 30 even though it calls for 5w 30, 10w wont hurt it especially in a warmer climate

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


ENGINE OIL

You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

I have had my Poulan Lawn Mower for 4 years. The model number is 961320020. As I was mowing the lawn today, I thought that it might be running a bit sluggish and it dawned on me that I had not ever added...


Four years without adding or changing the oil?!
I think that was the problem right there.

Mowers need oil changes to protect the cylinder walls and valve guides every 25 hours of operation. Thats usually about one season if your yard is under an 1/3 of an acre.

Your mower ran on almost no oil for the last two years. The normal lawn mower only holds 20 ounces of oil. You topped off with 16 ounces! The four ounces still in the motor were probably so full of dirt and metal particles that it was grease! Which is no help to an engine that gets its lubrication by splash oiling.

Your mower should be oiled with 30 weight non detergent oil. Multi Vis oils are for engines with tighter machined tolerances. Your oil choice is going to go right past the piston rings and valve guides creating gobs of smoke! Go get some 30W ND oil at your parts store and put it in....but run the mower first so you can clean out all the gunk in the oil sump. Run it long enough for the oil to flow easily.

Once you put in the right oil you can run it and try to clear out the remaining multi vis oil.

If it keeps smoking...I would say you have permanent damage to the cylinder wall or valve guides.

Good luck and be careful!
