SOURCE: location of oil drain plug on a 1999 HD Road King Classic

The solutions are close, so I must assume they are HD Road King answers, just not a 1999 Road King. The drain plug is on the front (facing the forks) left side (clutch) of the oil pan. On the 1999 model the drain plug is a 3/4 inch bolt. After changing the oil, be sure to replace the O-ring. The O-ring is rubber and does not last more than a single oil change. HD charges a dollar for the O-ring, but better to replace it than to end up with your new oil all over the garage floor.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 raod king classic. I switched to

its hard to say, but did you make sure that all the old gasket came off before you put the new one on?? mabye the new gasket got a kink in it somewhere or it was not lined up properly.. but what you probally want to do istake the cover back off get another new gasket and use a little bit of gasket sealer with the gasket.. and when you tighten the bolts down dont go in a circle put one in each corner firstto get the gasket lined up then put the rest in all at finger tight..
when tightening you want to go in a pattern of corner to corner.. when you have the cover off inspect it for cracks on the bottom side, that is real soft mettal..
hope I could help

SOURCE: Where is the oil drain plug located on a 2005 HD

Look along the underside of the oil tank from the right side of the bike. You should see a large diameter hose going down towards the transmission. It usually comes out along the frame just behind the transmission. The line has a removable plug in it. Remove the plug, oil drains out of the tank.

I have a 2000 Cavalier Z24 that leaks oil bad. The oil drips off of the bottom of the engine between the oil pan and transmission. I also noticed some oil at the top where the upper cooling hose is.

With this age of engine, the most likely cause is plugged up drain holes in the head. This allows the oil that goes to the cam and valve mechanism to be retained under the valve cover and present a challenge to the old valve cover gaskets,. Recommend you remove the valve cover, make sure the oil drain holes are clear and replace the valve cover gasket.

Bad head gasket?

The A/c will drip water normally from the condensation drain hose, a small hose on the front of the firewall somewhere.

Are you having to continually put in radiator water? Has your engine oil got an appearance like dirty milk (water in it)? If not, and it is not overheating very quickly (a classic sign of a blown head gasket) then you can discount the head gasket as a cause.

Continual need for oil can also be due to a leak (oil on the outside of the engine and heavy drips on the ground), or burning of oil (much blue smoke from the tailpipe after idling for a bit).

You could get a compression test, which will point to a blown head gasket and/or a worn engine which is burning oil. A radiator leak down test will show up a leaky coolant system.

My 1996 Toyota Camry is leaking oil in little spots on the ground when its parked, where could it be leaking from and how can i fix it?

You cannot repair the leak until you determine where it is leaking. More than likely it is leaking from the oil filter, oil pressure sending unit, or valve cover gasket. Check around the oil filter for a leaks and if you see oil on the filter then replace it. Check the oil pressure sending unit and if it is leaking replace it. Wipe all the oil off the bottom of the engine and any other place you see oil. Now place newspapers on the floor under the car and then start the engine and let it run for about 10 minutes and then shut down. Wait overnight and you can see where the leak is coming from.

I just got value cover replaced the next day its coming from bottom

i assume you're talking about oil leak,right? and i really hate to assume,but this time i will. you may have a leaking oil pressure sending unit. if it's coming from under the engine,and the valve cover gasket has been replaced recently, if you have'nt hit anything with the car that may have caused damage to your engine,I would look for a bad oil sending unit leaking,or a leaking oil filter,or a leaking oil pan gasket. or a simple oil drain bolt loose. if this does'nt help you,please repost your question to

Take a look under the truck near the rear of the passenger side cylinder head, these units are bad for leaking head gaskets on the right rear head. If that is dry, then the drain for the heater core is also near there. But if you don't smell anti freeze in the cabin when the heater is on then it is most likely the head gasket. Hope this helps.
