Hello,

Thanks for using FixYa.

You don't really need to be alarmed with whats happening. It actually spews oil because oil is being circulated around the engine. Internal pressure build up causes oil to actually spew out, all engines does this.

I hope this helps and gives you a piece of mind. Thanks and good day.

Just done oil change on my roadstar xv1600a oil is now spurting out of oil filler


Hi, Ray many riders are over filling their oil system because they do not know how to properly read their oil site glass or dipstick. The following procedure works on nearly all 4 stroke engines but to be on the safe side you should refer to your owners manual. Use your center stand if you have one.
1. Bring the engine up to operating temperature or let idle for 5 minutes.
2. Turn off your engine and let it sit for 2 minutes, this will allow the oil from the top end to drain to the bottom.
3. Hold your bike straight up or on the center stand and wait 2 minutes for the oil in the bottom of the engine to be level in the sight glass or on the dipstick.
4. Your oil level should be between the top full mark and the bottom add mark.
5. Never over fill your oil system it will cause problems:
a. oil leaking out of exhaust pipes.
b. oil leaking out of breather pipe/hose.
c. oil carryover into the air cleaner.
6. Your oil site glass must "NEVER" be completely full or empty drain or add oil as necessary.
7. Your oil dipstick must "NEVER" be over the full mark and should never be below the add mark drain or add oil as needed.

Were do i add transmittion fluid on 2001 harley dyna super glide sport?


Your Harley has 3 oils in it. #1 is Primary, #2 is Trans and #3 is engine. If you're leaking oil down from you kick stand area it is more than likely that your Primary cover is leaking. There is a fill plug at the top of the cover, when you remove the plug while the bike is sitting on the kick stand, the oil should come up just touching the bottom of the clutch hub.
On a side note this oil should be drained every 10k - 15k miles.
You really should spend the $50 for a service repair manual for your bike. It's like a bible for these bikes. Also if you haven't found them already go to www.harleytechtalk.org It's a free Harley site, one of the best I've ever found. Just sign up. If you like it they work strictly on donations IF you want to donate, but it's not necessary.

I have a 2007 sportster 1200 costom do you check the oil on the kick stand or standing stright up Thank You Vicki


On your Sporty, check the oil with the bike on the kickstand. The dipstick has two marks on it. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not overfill your oil tank. Keep the oil between the two lines. I suggest that as long as you can see the oil on the dipstick when the engine is cold, do not add oil. Ride the bike to get the engine to full temp and then check the oil and add if necessary.

Also, if the bike has been sitting for an extended period of time and the oil checks low, do not add oil. When the bike sits for a long time (three months or so) the oil can seep past the check valve and "oil sump" the bottom end. When you start the engine,it will pump this oil back to the tank. If you fill the tank before you start the engine, you'll have a major mess.

Good Luck

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER MY QUESTIONS ok need help with a 150cc gy6 engine on a very strange issue please try to answer all questions and thanks in advance 1. ok when i drained the oil and went to add new...


no its not normal,,, for your questions..they are all linked so i will answer each of them together..

The oil resevior has a blockage,, this is what causes the back pressre sound as well as the spewing.. This will also account for why the oil didnt go in normally.. This is usually caused by 1 or 2 things...

1.) wen you were adding oil something got down there with it and jammed / semi- jammed the inside..

2.) the parts in the engine are shaving ,, this is when the outer coating begins to fall off which is normally caused by 1.) wrong oil type 2.) running the engine will little or no oil, particles in the oil..

Now with that siad,, get your self an engine treatment,, the kind that you pour into the engine, run it and it should dissolve the particles and free the system,, drain it then add new oil...

If that fails then you will need to replace the engine or have it serviced / repaired,, This involves taking it apart,, replaceing components and putting it backtogether... You can also run it as is unit it goes..
