Hi,if this is automatic then you may have got water in the system,so will have to drain fluid, replace filter and fluid and hopefully it should be ok.
hope this was some help.

My 1999 yamaha grizzly 600 jumps out of reverse and shifts hard does the tranny and motor feed off the same reservoir

I'm not sure if the engine and transmission share the same oil but the problem with transmission jumping out of gear is most likely a bad synchro and will need to be repaired by a professional or someone familiar with the Yahamas.

I flooded the motor of my yamaha beartracker 250 in the creek. What do I need to clean or drain to get her running again

You will need to drain the oil if water got into it and flush the motor with a good oil flush, you will need to drain the carb to make sure there is no water in the bowl,, and dry the breather and airbox out, you should also make sure that water is not in the axles if shaft driven

2001 600 grizzly uses engine oil 1 quart in 20 mile ride. what do you think it might be?

You didn't say the bike was leaving a large white cloud of smoke when riding so the only other reasonable alternative is compression getting past the piston rings is forcing the tranny oil out of the crankcase breather and onto the roadway. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

How much does it cost to fix an oil leak and get new seals for a 1995 Subrau Legacy? I'm looking to buy a car but not sure if its worth it. 600 it has 164,000 miles? Please can someone help me out??

Well, it is going to cost to fix, seeing they have to pull the engine, but with only 164k, you have a lot of life left in it, and for $600 bucks you can't beat it. I bought a 94 Rodeo, for parts for my truck, it is made on the same assembly line as the Subaru, it has 229k miles on it and runs great, I took the tag off my other truck and have been driving this around till I find another parts truck for the both of them now, the good one has 250k miles on it and runs great, tranny went bad on it. now back to the Subaru, To get to the rear and front seals, they have to pull the pan and drop the crank, only way to do it is with the engine out, so while the engine is out, you might as well redo the whole thing. If the car falls apart in the meantime, sell the new engine, they are in demand, especially a 4 valve. I would pull the heads, have them done, re-seat the valves, plane the heads, new gaskets, new plugs, wires, water pump, timing chain, belt whichever engine you have, new seals, gaskets, flush the engine, flush the tranny or dump the 90 weight and put in some slick 90. Or both, you have a gearbox for the front drive along with the automatic tranny fluid if it is automatic, all this should be under $1,000, so for 1600 bucks, you got a brand new car, that is almost 20 years old. The body rust would tell me what to do, if there is no rust, great, if it is a rust bucket, keep looking.

I have a 79 firebird that hasn't been used for years. i want to flush all the fluids add new ones, jump the car and see if it runs. i just don't know where to start. how do i do a fluid flush?

ok.. oil simply change it and the filter don't forget to add oil to rubber ring.. water jus unhook the hose at the bottom of the radiator using pliers and make sure you have a drain pan.. you can run water through it if it is unclean, otherwise you shouldn't need to flush, then reattach hose and clamp.. fill to top.. the water pump on the vehicle will need to be rotated or cranked to get water into the engine, and refill... be careful not to crank the water pump by hand because that will mess up the timing and you will need to redo that.. tranny fluid should not be changed because if there is a certain amount of metal shavings already in it clean fluid will ruin it, but i suggest checking the fluid level and maybe topping it off if needed there should be a bolt on the side of the transmission that you can take out and put your finger in the hole and the fluid should reach the hole and no lower if it pours out its fine let it level out too much tranny fluid is just as bad as not enough.. you will need to have the car on jack stands as level as possible to do this... also you can disconnect the fuel lines at the carburetor and connect a hose to it turn the key on and the fuel pump should pump out the old gasoline..

1999 pontiac sunfire over heats vents blowing cold air

Take the inlet & outlet hose off of the lines feeding your heater coil, where it come off the motor. Do you have good pressure on your water supply to your house????? If Yes. Flush the water thru the heater hose backwards from the diterction that the water normly flows from your car motor. Alot ot the time your heater core will just be plugged up and need to be backflushed. Also make sure that you do not have trash/ leaves in your heater box?????
You can also later on after flushing the H-core out, you can flush your motor, radiator & heater coil by dropping everything out and add water plus 1-can of old style Comett. This is very abrassive!!!! Run the motor for about 1-hour. Then drop all of it out. Put just water back into the system and run again about 10-minutes.Do this flushing about 3-times. You will see how clean your radiator will be, plus the cooler your motor will run.
