I don't know what you are referring to when you say "secondary". The best engine oil is the H-D Syn3 20W50 oil. You can use most any oil you want as long as it has the proper API rating. I think Harley requires a "C" rating on their oil for use in diesel engines.

For the "primary" case and transmission, I use H-D Primary lube for Sportsters if I can find it. Harley had changed over to another name for the Sportster oil.

Now, there are several other manufacturers of lubricants that are suitable for use in your Sporty. Manufacturers like Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil, and a few others. You'll have to go to their websites to get a list of what to use where.

Good Luck
Steve

Harley Davidson Sport Trans Fluid is the best for the primary as synthetics are to slippery and personally I would only HD 20w50 in the engine oil since it is made specifically for the ball bearing motors that Harley uses.

Miss fires and stots off when I give it gas as codes 1391 ,0351, 0352, 0353,


P1391 - Not a valid obd code.
B1391 - Oil Level Switch Circuit Failure
C1391 - Not a valid obd code.
U1391 - Not a valid obd code.
Its possible you may have misread this code. If it is B1391 that would be the only code with 1391 for your vehicle.

P0351 - Ignition Coil A Primary / Secondary Circuit Malfunction. The ignition signal from the Powertrain Control Module or Electronic Control Module is sent to and amplified by the power transistor. The power transistor turns ON and OFF the ignition coil primary circuit. This ON/OFF operation induces the proper high voltage in the coil secondary circuit.

Possible Causes:
- Open or short in the ignition coil circuit
- Ignition coil circuit shorted to ground
- Ignition coil connector
- Damaged ignition coil
- Damaged PCM

P0352 - Ignition Coil B Primary / Secondary Circuit Malfunction.
Same repair info as P0351.

P0353 - Ignition Coil C Primary / Secondary Circuit Malfunction.
Same repair info as P0351



Solutions:
- If damage, repair ignition coil circuit
- Replaced ignition coil
- Replaced
PCM or ECM

How do you tell if the coil packs are bad


With an OHM meter to check the resistance

You need to check primary and secondary resistences, not just primary as you did.
Primary = 0.67 - 1.05 ohms (You may have a bad multi meter if all read the same)
Secondary = 9.3k - 16k ohms Contributing Member

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus ses with a 3.0 liter v6(not the dohc model either). Today the check engine light came on. I took it to autozone to have the code run and they told me that it could be the primary...


Does the vehicle have coil on plug ignition or coilpack ? And it's not primary or secondary coil malfunctioning It's primary or secondary circuit . I'm assuming it has a coil pack because you say plug wires.
P0350 - Ignition Coil (Undetermined) Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction Each ignition primary circuit is continuously monitored. The test fails when the PCM does not receive a valid IDM pulse signal from the ignition module (integrated in the PCM).
  • Open or short in the Ignition START/RUN circuit.
  • Open coil driver circuit.
  • Coil driver circuit shorted to ground.
  • Damaged coil.
  • Damaged PCM.
  • Coil driver circuit shorted to VPWR.
P0351 - Ignition Coil A Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction See the description for DTC P0350. See the possible causes for DTC P0350.
Pull the spark plugs out an look at them , check the gap ,if too wide replace them . If the spark plug gap gets too worn ,the spark won't jump the gap. It will find the least resistance path to ground ,and it will do it inside the coil . Going from the secondary circuit back to the primary coil an to ground through the PCM - engine computer . The PCM has transistors inside that open an close the primary side to ground ,this builds up a magnetic field around the secondary inducing high voltage spark . Well this can short out the transistor inside the PCM . Most of the time that's what these type codes mean . The PCM would need to be replaced an programmed . This can also damage the catalytic converter. Your best bet , take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

HOW I CAN KNOW WHICH PUMP GOES ON MY SATURN VUE PRIMARY OR SECONDARY IS 3.0 ENGINE


The primary fuel pump is located in the left side of the tank. If you fill the tank up and it still does not start then it is the primary tank. Problem is that now you will have to drop the tank with a full tank of gas. The primary pump is used to pump the fuel to the fuel rail, while the secondary pump is used to pump fuel from the right side of the tank to the left side. I usually replace both primary and secondary so I don't have to pull the tank again if the secondary is also bad.

Are you sure you have a fuel pump problem? What are your symptoms?

Which brake shoe is the primary shoe on a 1998 pontiac grand am? front or back


I'm assuming you mean drum brakes as they are the only ones with primary and secondary shoes. Not all drum brakes have a primary and secondary shoes. On drum brakes with primary and secondary shoes (called duo servo systems) the front shoe is slightly smaller than the rear one and is the primary shoe. On non servo systems, the shoes are the same size -- there is no primary or secondary shoe.

Where to start was not getting spark constantly. turned on switch good spark then stops.changed stator got spark added oil no spark.getting fed up.


The poblem could be in the switch.You need to go through a series of steps to figure this out.1.primary power reaching ignition.
2. secondary (high voltage) spark generated from coil.
3. Constant spark to plug.
if your switch is corrupt the intermitent pimary is why you get spark sometimes.Try to eliminate the switch by jumping a wire to the coil primary, (leave the switch off) like your hot wirring the bike.I don't see the oil being involved at all.Take it from a guy who only had Kick Start bikes..It's Gas or Spark..Primary (battery) or secondary ( coil, wires.ect) be patient go slow keep a written record of your stepts.Good Luck.

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
