you are right in the removal and replacement of the springs, my tip so you dont have to change the oil is when you are removing the springs nip your fingers on 1 section of the spring and turn the spring in your fingers like you are unscrewing a bolt.any oil loss will be neglible. oil is 270mls per leg if you want to change it.

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: Oil Change to Honda CRF250r 2004

The left side is the ENGINE oil fill. The right side oil fill plug is THE TRANSMISSION oil. There are 2 separate drain plugs also. Honda sells an engine oil with moly HP4M that you should not put in the trans because it will cause clutch slippage. The best performance and protection for your bike is full synthetic engine oil with a dedicated gear oil in the transmission. Get yourself a manual so you will not be as confused

Oil pan


Hi Gerti ,
It is very easy , First lift the vehicle through jack or hydraulic lift and drain the engine oil in a pan and arrange a new engine oil filter and oil as it is better to replace( u can use the same if it is not very old). U can drain the oil by removing the drain plug ( keep it for around 1 hour so that oil from the gallerias also drain out).
After 1 hour remove the oil pan by removing all the bolts from engine and replace with the new one.
Top up the engine oil by removing the dip stick and your car must be fine.
Thanks

How do i replace a oil pan on this car


First, drain the oil.

You will need to get an engine hoist and lift the engine about a half foot up. This will require unhooking at least one motor mount that is closest to the oil pan.

Once the engine is lifted, you can unbolt the oil pan and remove/replace it.

Do be mindful of what sort of sockets you need as some Passats require special hex bolts tools or other odd tools.

How hard is it to replace the oil pan in an '04 Acura TL?


As to how hard it is to replace that depends. If you can remove the oil pan without removing any other parts then it is a simple repair. But if you must remove other parts in order to remove the pan it can be more difficult. Crawl under the car and see what must be removed in order to get the pan off. If you can buy a new oil pan for $95 then by all means buy it and replace it yourself or hire a trusted mechanic to do it for you. I can assure you it will not cost $300. At least find out what it will cost if done by someone other than the dealer. Honda's are reliable cars but their oil pan drain plugs are not. The problem is Honda uses an aluminum drain plug washer and this requires you to torque it to 29 ft/lbs in order for it to seal properly. Over time this will cause the pan threads, which are weak, to distort and eventually end up stripping out. The solution when you install your new oil pan is to not use an aluminum washer and instead use a fiber washer. If you pay someone else to change your oil, be sure and tell them to leave the fiber washer in place and not to install an aluminum washer. You then torque it to 15 ft/lbs and never have a leak or stripped threads. Another alternative is to just replace the drain plug with an inexpensive rubber drain plug you can purchase at any auto parts store. It will seal the drain and you just throw it away and install a new one at every oil change.

My oil pan drain plug was stripped when i bought the car new and had an after market temp. plug. I would like to know how to take off the old oil pan and replace with a new one.


you need to purchase a chiltons repair manual. no overly difficult but the front cv drive shafts and starter may need to be removed. be sure to drain all oil out of pan before removing. use a new pan and gasket. before to check the tightness of the new pan's drain plug before adding oil.
