Got oil change it was at 50 percent oil and it still saying 50 percent oil 97 Cadillac deglance

Then either the oil was not filled, you're losing oil very fast, the sensor is not working correctly, or it needs to be reset somehow. Check the oil with dipstick, and if OK then you will need to take it to mechanic if you want it corrected.

Your vehicle's routine maintenance schedule

Reasons to perform routine Preventive Maintenance on your vehicle

Preventive Maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of preventive maintenance is to help prolong the life of the vehicle and reduce vehicle failures therefore providing a worry free driving experience. Automotive technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well today and down the road, is routine preventive maintenance. Many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday automotive basics. Maintenance

A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:

* 38 percent of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
* 54 percent had low tire pressure.
* 28 percent had inadequate cooling protection.
* 19 percent needed new belts.
* 16 percent had dirty air filters.
* 10 percent had low or contaminated brake fluid.
Some of the most important preventive maintenance steps you can do yourself and save you some time and money. Here is a quick list of some of the most common preventive maintenance steps that you should be able to handle yourself.
Airfilter: Check it every month. Replace it when it becomes dirty or as part of a tune -up. It is easy to reach, right under the big metal 'lid', in a carbureted engine; or in a rectangular box at the forward end of the air in a duct hose assembly.
Battery: Extreme caution should be taken while handling a battery since it can produce explosive gases. It is advisable not to smoke, create a spark or light a match near a battery. Always wear protective glasses and gloves.
Belts: Inspect belts and hoses smoothly. Replace glazed, worn or frayed belts. Replace bulging, rotten or brittle hoses and tighten clamps. If a hose looks bad, or feels too soft or too hard, it should be replaced.
Brake Fluid: Check the brake fluid monthly. First wipe dirt from the brake master cylinder reservoir lid. Pry off the retainer clip and remove the lid or unscrew the plastic lid, depending on which type your vehicle has. If you need fluid, add the improved type and check for possible leaks throughout the system. Do not overfill.
Engine Oil; Check the oil after every fill up. Remove the dipstick, wipe it clean. Insert it fully and remove it again. If it is low, add oil. To maintain peak performance, the oil should be changed every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. Replace the oil filter with every oil change.
Exhaust: Look underneath for loose or broken exhaust clamps and supports. Check for holes in muffler or pipes. Replace the rusted or damaged parts. Have the emission checked at once per year for compliance with local laws.
Hoses: Inspect the hoses and belts monthly. If a hose looks bad, or feels too soft or too hard, it should be replaced.
Lights: Make sure that all your lights are clean and working, including the brake lights, turn signals and emergency flashers. Keep spare bulbs and fuses in your vehicle.
Oil Filter: To maintain peak performance, change oil every 3 months or 3,000 kms whichever comes first. Replace oil filter with every oil change.
Power Steering Fluid: Check the power steering fluid level once per month. Check it by removing the reservoir dipstick. If the level is down, add fluid and inspect the pump and hoses for leaks.
Shock Absorbers: Look for signs of oil seepage on shock absorbers, test shock action by bouncing the car up and down. The car should stop bouncing when you step back. Worn or leaking shocks should be replaced. Always replace shock absorbers in pairs.
Tires: Keep tires inflated to recommended pressure. Check for cuts, bulges and excessive tread wear. Uneven wear indicates tires are misaligned or out of balance.
Transmission Fluid: Check transmission fluid monthly with engine warm and running, and the parking brake on. Shift to drive, then to park. Remove dipstick, wipe dry, insert it and remove it again. Add the approved type fluid, if needed. Never overfill.
Washer Fluid: Keep the windshield washer fluid reservoir full. Use some of it to clean off the wiper blades.
Wiper Blades: Inspect the windscreen wiper blades whenever you clean your windshield. Do not wait until the rubber is worn or brittle to replace them. They should be replaced at least once per year, and more often if smearing occurs. Remember, preventive maintenance is easy and you will benefit from it in the long run by saving yourself time and money at the repair shop.

How much oil goes into a honda crf250 engine and how much goes into the gearbox

The oil capacity is marked on engine side as well as gearbox side. On gearbox side there is a 8mm screw just before the clutch cover. Take this bolt out and fill until the oil start coming out this hole, should be about 600ml. Do not use full synthetic oil in gearbox, this does not work well with the clutch friction plates. On the engine side put about 500ml (depending if you changed the oil filter as well), then check level with diptstick by placing diptstick in hole WITHOUT SCREWING IT IN. Fill with little bits at a time until you reach the max mark on the diptstick. Start engine and warm up. Shut down and leave for 3 minutes. Check oil again. DO NOT overfill engine side.

Honda nifty bfifty clutch slip, how to adjust or is it oil filled centrifugal clutch, if so how do u fill

Hello David?
Motorcycles have what is called wet clutches. The clutch is bathed in the engine oil(crankcase oil ) To ck the adjustment, squeeze the clutch lever enough to take up any slack. There should be at least 1/4 in freeplay. If no free play the clutch will slip. Too much free play and the clutch won't dis-engage.after verifying free play, Take this part with serious thought. Wet clutches do not like motor oil. It causes the clutch to slip. So, If you have changed oil or have added any and it was not motorcycle engine oil, It is more than likely your problem. You will need to drain the oil and filter and put the right type into the engine. The clutch has np separate oil supply. Lever adjustment should be at the clutch lever clamp. Now what is this 50/50? Good Luck-

How to check oil on my motorcycle

take off oil cap an smell it. if it smells like fuel or a burnt smell (caused by the clutch) then change it. and you might want to change the friction plates out on the clutch, all other clutch components should be o.k. Also if it looks milkybrown this is not good, you might have a blown gasket.
it should look brownish black not pure black! if black change it..
you check oil level on all bikes in an upright position.. using a sight gauge or dip stick...with dip stick you just unscrew, wipe, drop it in, pull back out, and never fill it up all the way, only 3/4. This will prevent accidental overfill which will cause internal engine component damage.
most all bike take 3 qts, a little more like .2 to .5 extra with filter change, pour in 2 and 1/2 quarts turn on engine for 30 sec and turn off. Then let it sit for a minute to insure new filter absorbs the oil, now fill slowly to 3/4 position, install cap, and go for a ride, get oil hot, and then recheck level, then fill it up full if you like ..but i never do. older bikes should stick with 10w40, but the newer bikes can get away with the newer synthetics with minimal clutch slippage. if you are going to use synthetics i"d put in Barnet Racing clutch "friction" plates, and stiffer springs i did this and boy what a thing though that you will notice after you do this.. "and its normal", is that you'll have clutch creap, this is because the clutch is a lot tighter and just wants to go! once you use the clutch more it will start to go away a little.
Sorry getting off "track" , now then, use a detergent multigrade 20w50 oil and your good to go. hope this was helpful!

Engine light wenton, car heated up, car would not

If the engine overheated while driving, damage to the cylinder head gasket or engine block/cylinder head may have been done, which would prevent the vehicle from starting.

A standard engine compression check will tell the tale.

Clutch issues

Not overly familiar with your bike, but there is probably a kill switch on the center stand to stop the engine. This prevents the potential problem of coming off the center stand with the wheel spinning.
