Follow the manufactures spec's for your bike! Depending on the bike, the oil used will lubricate the clutch and the transmission, as well as different parts of the engine. If the oil is lubricating the transmission you do not want to use a car oil because it will break down too fast. There are different blends as well. (Molly blends / non molly blends) That will impact the engines performance and the clutch performance and can ruin vital engine parts.

Engine oil mixing into coolant

The only place, oil and water share a gasket is the cylinder head gasket, oil and water galleries run through the engine block and head via the head gasket. The cylinder pressure will be OK, it's the oil pressure that's putting the oil in the coolant, the gasket has gone between the water and oil galleries or there is an internal crack (unlikely). A coolant pressure test should show it up.

I see the fluid in the brake reservoir is low. Where do put that oil in? Duh!

Do not put oil in the brake master cylinder! Only DOT 4 or DOT 5 brake fluid should go in the master cylinder! The proper fluid should be listed on the top cover of the master cylinder. Brake fluid will have absolutely nothing to do with your valve leak.

4 cylinder oil capacity

Most 4 cylinder engines have a capacity of between 4 and 5 liters.
I would put 4 liters in , run the engine for a minute or two , wait a couple more minutes for the oil to drain back down into the oil pan , and then check the dipstick. Vehicle should be on reasonably level ground to get and accurate dipstick reading.

How do you chace a oil pump on a honda goldwing 1200 cc

There are two oil pumps; the Main Oil Pump and the Scavenger Oil Pump. I will list the procedure for both pumps.

Main Oil Pump

1) Put the bike up on the center stand
2) Remove the engine front cover
3) Remove the collar and O-ring seals from the oil pump cover
4) Remove the bolts and Phillips screws holding the oil pump cover on and remove the cover
5) Remove the dowel pins from the oil pump body
6) Remove the inner and outer rotors
7) Remove the drive pin and washer from the drive shaft and remove the oil pump body from the cylinder block - The drive shaft will remain in the cylinder block. (Do not lose the locating dowel in the cylinder block).
8) Clean all parts before replacing the new oil pump
9) Install in reverse order

NOTE: If it is necessary to remove the oil pump drive shaft, the cylinder block will have to be disassembled. Also it is a good idea to coat all parts with oil prior to installing the new pump.

Scavenger Oil Pump

1) Remove the engine from the frame
2) Remove the engine read cover
3) Remove the clutch outer housing
4) Remove the bolts holding the oil pump to the cylinder block and remove the pump

NOTE: Both of these pumps can be rebuilt with fairly easy and it's considerably less expensive to do so.

2004 crf 450 r atifreeze in the oil and put new water pump and all that in it and they say it needs head gasket but if that dont work does that mean the blocks cracked

You may have put the seals in backwards. They must go in a specific direction. If that is ok, is the water on the right side oil, or left side oil? Right side you have a seal problem, Left side you have a head gasket. The cylinder wont crack unless destroyed. Replace head gasket and the bad oil on bad side. Chaz Moto DC

hey pal! Go to your favorite Motorcycle parts store (Cycle Gear etc) and buy 4 Qts of Castrol Syntec 10-30 or 10-40 wt. If you bike has a centerstand put in on center. Look carefully on both sides of bike engine for a small siteglass to check oil level..if you have a dipstick forget about the siteglass.Your bike will take between 3 &4 qts and we will start by putting 3 in the crankcase after we have put drainplug back in and installed new filter ok? Then start motor for 1 minute letting the oil pump into the new filter. shut bike off and check oil off as needed...Good Luck to you !....Tim

No fire from coil to #1 cylinder

Ok since you did all that if you want to swap around fuel injectors taking note where you put cylinder 1 injector. Lets say you swapped it with cylinder 4 . Now if you get a different code say P0304 which is for cylinder 4 misfire then you know it is your injector at fault. These are wear items and should be replaced every 100,000 miles.
Also i would suggest if you dont want to do that is get some good high octane gas when you are completely empty and fill to 1/4 tank now put in Lucas Oil fuel injector cleaner and run the car till empty. Now fill up tank with high octane gas in see if this helps. Clear code after your second tank of gas and see if the code comes back. if code does pop back up then i would do the swapping of injectors as i stated earlier. I hope this helps and good luck with the diagnosis.

It might be a good idea to flush everything out with clean oil. And maybe clean the oil filter. And clean the crankcase and stuff.
