Is it possible for the transmission fluid in my 2005 Road King to leak into the crank case oil pan?

if there is a faulty seal on the crankshaft then the gear oil can get to the crankcase
being a separate case with separate oil, check that the breather for the transmission is not blocked and the pressure build up is not forcing the oil past the seal into the crankcase

I have a 1997 Ford Taurus, Ive had the Transmission replaced twice and Im hearing that this is not a good car. Should I continue to put money into it. It gets me to where I need to go and Im more of a...

You only need regular, 87 octane, you are wasting your money buying anything else. As to wiether you should keep it, if you do not overheat it, change the oil, and make sure the trans is always to the correct level at the dipstick, and the fluid/filter is changed every 30,000 miles (it is a Ford Trans), it should last a very long time-the 3.0 is a very good engine, and the trans is not all that terrible, properly cared for. The trans fluid should NOT be dark in color, or smell 'burnt'-it should be cherry red, and when it is changed, it should be refilled with Mercon V fluid only. Change the antifreeze every 50,000 miles, use fully synthetic oil and a good filter (puralator Pure One, Wix, Motorcraft, etc.) and change it every 5000 miles (as long as it does not leak oil, synthetic should also reduce wear, increase gas mileage, and you can go past 5000 miles for changes, within reason). Lastly, do NOT drive it if it is not running right-many people will drive a car that is running badly, and this is what I see as one of the biggest reasons cars become problems-a smaller problem almost always gets worse if ignored. Don't drive it with a Check Engine Light illuminated without finding out what is causing it-as long as it is not flashing, you can drive it alittle until you can arrange to get it looked at, but if it is flashing, do not drive it-and find out why it is blinking. If it is running hotter than you are used to seeing, get it checked-check your oil level at each fillup, or better yet once a month, in the morning before you start it-if the car is on level ground, that is the best time to check it. I have a brother-in-law who has one of these, and he's put about 45,000 miles on it in the past 3-4 years. he bought it for $650 (really)-he changes the oil, he had to get the trans rebuilt, but he checks the trans fluid level once a month, changed it at 30,000 miles, and it runs great, is very dependable.

93 Fatboy oil leaking from vent tube at air filter. oil level is good, not over filled, oil will cover the oil tank on a 100 mile trip

On your '93 model, the crankcase vent is down low on the engine behind the oil pump and it runs up to the air filter through a metal and rubber hose. I don't know how many miles you have on your engine but it you're getting any blow-by on the rings, this will increase the pressure in the crankcase. Most people simply re-route the crankcase breather underneath the bike and plug the hole on the backside of the air filter. Replace the metal line with a rubber hose and put a small filter in the end of the hose. Route the hose back behind the transmission and attach it to the transmission mounting plate just in front of the rear wheel.

This was the way the older Shovelheads were done from the factory for years until the EPA made them start running the crankcase vented air through the engine. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather" system and moved the crankcase vents to the heads. Still, the oil mist in the vented air builds up in the air cleaner on these models as well.

Good Luck

Transmission oil dipstick.....

You are correct and the size to remove it would be a 3/8" allen wrench. The dipstick should be on the right side of the bike where the clutch cable goes into the right side transmission cover and it will take roughly 22 ounces of transmission oil, that level should be checked with the bike upright and level and just put the dipstick in its hole so the bottom threads of the dipstick touch the top threads of the cover.

'93 corolla,4 trans.speedometer reads10 mph slow and the transmission shifts real fast.Its in third gear bythe time u hit 30 mph. Also wont downshift at this point either.

well what you want to do is change the trans control solenoid or the trans modulator.i know this car has a trans modulator but im not sure that it has a trans solenoid.either way it's a lot cheaper than changing the trans.hope this info helps. take care and good luck, manny

Can not locate the crankcase oil check bolt on my 93 rm 125

Hi, firstly look on left side near cylinder base for a cap !its not a bolt[way too big] & usually has a bar arrangement so you can get hold of & twist it!
dont mix oil brands! use a TOP quality oil
as its the only insurance you can apply to it!
[ cheap oil kills engines] use what you can afford! & stick with it!

Transmission slipping

there are several issues that need to be addressed. I imagine that the trans oil and filter have not been changed in a while so that is a first step in fixing the problem. trans oil and filter should be changed every 50,000 miles for atf oil and 75,000 for synthetic oil. old trans oil and clogged filters are #1 reason for trans slippage. another reason is the trans controle cable is out of adjustment and there fore the trans doesn't shift like it should this is something that needs to be looked at by a mechanic. third possibilty is either the check valves inside the trans valve body are gummed up or you have a failing torque converter. try and get that oil and filter changed and see if this helps solve it if not than you need to takeit to a shop and have the trans rebuilt.
