BE CAREFUL WITH THE OIL CHOICE. SOME HAVE ADDITIVES THAT CAUSE THE CLUTCH TO SLIP, SPECIALLY WITH HIGH POWER ENGINES.

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


ENGINE OIL

You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

I have a suzuki vl 800 i take very good care of it the guy that owned the bike used mobil not shure if it was synthetic, im running suzuki v twin simi synthetic,but im not shure if thats the oil i want to...


Lose the synthetic as fast as you can. Synthetics can swell the cork on the pressure plates. This causes the clutch to grab and/or drag. 10w40 motor oil should be in the gear box.

2005 yamaha royal star. what type and how much oil for the tranny?


The Royal Star crankcase lubricates engine, transmission and wet clutch at the same time, that's why frequent oil and filter changes are recommended. Use a high-quality multi-grade oil, 10W-30 in cold weather and 20W-40 in hot weather is recommended by the manufacturer. AVOID ANY OIL THAT SAYS ENERGY-CONSERVING (you'll see a seal on the bottle), that type of oil has a tendency to make the clutch slip. Personally, I recommend a multi-grade synthetic - I use Shell Rotella-T (T6) synthetic 5W-40 year-round, 111,000 miles since I changed from Mobil-1 0W-40 (9,000 on the Mobil-1) ; the engine's still tight, and the transmission and clutch are quiet.

Engine light


I've restarted my RSTD in Southwest U.S. temperatures well above 100F after short stops and experienced the same symptoms; choking the engine fully prior to a restart and releasing the choke after the engine fires seems to eliminate the stall. I suspect that heat rising from the engine boils most of the fuel from the carburetor bowls, and full choke pulls enough fuel back in to keep the engine running.

The owner's manual recommends 20W-40 in that temperature range. DO NOT USE ANY OIL MARKED "ENERGY CONSERVING", it contains molybdenum disulfide (a friction modifier) and may make the clutch slip. Tourers that drive long distances and operate in a wide range of temperatures generally recommend synthetic lubricants - Mobil Delvac 1, Mobil-1 SUV and Shell Rotella T Synthetic are names that keep popping up. Personally, I've been using Rotella-T (T6) synthetic for 111,000 miles (and used Mobil-1 0W-40 for 9,000 miles prior to that), and the bike has required nothing but routine maintenance. I've used the bike in temperatures from 11F to 118F (ambient) without negative effect.

What oil should i put in my 1997 Yamaha FZR600? Also, where can I find a manual for my year? The manuals I found all stop at 1996.


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} All oils must meet the standards of the US government Department of Weights and Measures . Just use the better known brands like Shell, Mobil, Pennzoil, Quaker State, etc.. Do not get the ones with "Special" additives. NEVER use synthetics. Some of the additives and most of the synthetics will swell the cork on the clutch friction plates. Then the clutch will not disengage. Other synthetics can be too slick and cause the clutch to slip. Use 10w40 motor oil and you are doing good.

For the manual, try www.carlsalter.com/motorcycle-manuals.asp

They have over 1300 manuals for free download. It may take 20 seconds or so to build the entire list. They show your model but you can't be sure of the year without doing a download. By the way, The service procedures are the same '96 to '97.

Is it okay to change my oil early? And what is a good oil to use besides the recommended motorcraft? I am currently using Mobile 1 full synthetic


No harm in changing early and mobil 1 is a great oil, only once you use full synthetic make sure you continue to use it.

I need to kniow what type of oil to use in my 2001


Use 10w40 motor oil in the gear box. Don't use any synthetic oils, oil marked "EC", or oil with "special" additives. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. If in a hot area like Texas or New Mexico go with 20w50.

2003 yz 125 clutch


This sounds like dirt and grit in the oil is causing the clutch to grab. Change the gearbox oil. Ride the bike for a couple of hours using the clutch often. Now drain the oil again and put in fresh oil. This will flush out the dirt and grit. Use 10w40 motor oil. Stick with the major brands; Pennzoil, Quaker State, Mobil or Shell. Do not use synthetics or oils with "special" additives.

Other possible causes are > a need to adjust the clutch lever for 1/4" free play at end of the lever > warped clutch plates or friction plates > Clutch has been worked on and assembled wrong > low oil level in the gearbox > frozen clutch hub bearing > Incorrect clutch cable being used.

Please post a comment after the double oil change. The 2x oil change is a cheap way to eliminate a possible cause and hey, it isn't gonna hurt anything. If you still have the problem I can help with a clutch rebuild.
