The oil window is on the left side of the engine crankcase, very near the bottom of the case. It is number 52005 in this parts microfiche.

I have a portable generator, 5600. My C1 engine light came on to check oil, however there is no dipstick. How do I check oil level etc?

No dipstick then you fill it all the way to the bottom of the oil fill hole. If you have a riser type oil filler the dipstick should be attached to the cap. Worst case senerio remove the low oil level sensor and fill with oil at that point until you can no longer add oil without making a mess, I am sure there is a gray oil cap somewhere. That is where your supposed to add oil until you can no longer add oil without it overflowing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

How many quarts of oil does a craftsman with a brigs and stratton 8.5 hp model 917294270 hold? I have no manual and sears site doesnt provide the info i need.

On B&S motors you should fill the crankcase up to the threads on the oil check/filler hole. If you have one with a long dipstick that goes into a tube, fill the crank case so the oil only comes up to the full mark on the dipstick. Most of these motors take about one quart, usually less than that.

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995

OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

Hello I have a 1994 YAMAHA FZR 600R I took the plug out of my crank case last night and seen no oil down in side where should the oil level be and what should i use in it.

With plug I presume you are talking about the oil filler plug, When you open oil filler plug normally you will see a dipstick showing how much oil is in the crankcase, if not, find an oil level window near foot clutch lever or another way is to use a piece of skinny stick, dip it in perpendicular to bike oil hole and pull it straght out. it should show about 2-3 cm in height. You can use normal meneral bike oil SAE 10-40W about 2.5-3.5 L to fill cranckcase full.

What oil fits best my bike?

Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. 10w40 is what goes in the engine. I am not familiar with the Cagiva brand motorcycle, but you probably have an oil dipstick on the end of the oil filler cover. Fill the gearbox until the oil is mid-point in the indicated range, probably 3 quarts will do.

Change the oil filter also, (assuming the bike has one). Recheck oil level after running the engine for a minute. This allows the oil filter to fill up. Often the oil capacity is shown right next to the oil filler hole. If there is no dipstick and no oil capacity information at the filler hole then best to contact the dealer and ask.

Please rate this answer. Thanks Octavia! < nice name

2003 vulcan 750-how/where to check engine oil level / noisy

there should be a little window just below the oil fill area that says high and low, that's where you gauge the level of oil you have. it's not a dipstick, and not very precise, but that's it.
