First off, determine if it's transmission fluid, or primary chain case fluid.
I had the seal on the transmission main shaft go on me once (the seal under the transmission rear drive pulley, behind the inner primary cover).
This can be changed with the transmission still in the bike, but the entire primary needs to come apart, and the transmission sprocket/pulley removed to access it.

If it's primary fluid, it's probably the seal on the inner primary case that the transmission shaft runs through and that the clutch assembly bolts to.
Again, the entire primary needs to be torn down to access this.

Either way, the cost of the part isn't bad, but the labor is the killer, as it's a 6-10 hour job, if I remember the book's quote.

SOURCE: oil change 1999H D Electra glide

The plug ( 3/4 wrench ) under the trans when your looking at the trans cover ( right side of the bike ) is the trans. If you drained that replace it with 24 oz. of either HD trans fluid or I prefer Golden Spectro 75/140 ( much better shifting on a Harley ( trust me you'll never go back to HD trans fluid ) the drain for your motor oils is on the same pan ( on the bottom ) but it's the plug facing the front of the bike. Looks just like the trans plug. Both use a 11105 o ring which you should replace everytime ( just for piece of mind as well as leaks ) you need 4 quarts of 20/59 HD oil. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: engine oil plug

Another way to locate it, is with the bike on the kickstand, look underneath of it from the right (brake) side. The oil drain plug is on the front of the square looking pan under, and to the rear of the engine. The oil drain is the plug on the front of that pan, on the left (shifter) side of the bike. The trans drain is on that same square looking pan, but towards the right side, and faces down. It screws in and out vertically, whereas the oil drain is horizontal

Run the bike until it's at operating temp. Locate the drain plug. On the oil pan right under the transmission. remove the plug using a 1/4 allen. Fully drain. replace plug ( I suggest applying Teflon tape on the threads to make sure you won't leak ) then put in 23 ounces. runn the bike back up to operating temperature, then check level with bike upright and level.

What is the proper way to check transmission oil level on my 03 rm250


Hello. The engine and the trans do NOT use the same oil. The engine oil is premixed with the fuel. The transmission oil is filled with the filler plug on the right side of the engine case. Look under the kick stand, see the 850 ml marking? The trans holds that much oil. Either drain the oil and add that exact amount.... OR you can take out the check screw located lower and forward of the oil fill on the case, should look just like a case bolt, but with an aluminum washer to seal it. Once you remove this bolt/plug you can add oil till the oil flow out this hole. Joe

Oil in the engine coolant. no oil in water. I don;t think it is trans. fluid from cooler in radiator.


The seals on you oil cooler are gone. The oil cooler is located under the intake manifold. Hopefully you haven't driven the vehicle far because the grey mud created by the mixture with bake onto your engine walls sealing up the ports. It's best to have Ford (or a damn good mechanic) do the job as the whole top of the engine basically has to come apart. Roughly $3000 to fix providing you haven't damaged anything else. After the seals/oil cooler is replaced, you should flush your coolant at least 3 times. Good luck!

Exactly where is oil pressure sending unit located on 2001 Jeep Grand cherokee. PLEASE don't tell me it is near the oil pump.


if you have the 5.2 V8 its located in the rear of the engine near the dist cap area you can see it if you look in that area , if 4.0 6 cyl its located on the side of the engine block near the oil filter area. It has two wires going to it and screws into the block. It's made mainly of plastic and if broken can allow oil under pressure to spew out and give you thoughts of a blown rear main seal due to the amount of oil all over the underside.
