Just add the oil,and check it with the dipstick every half quart or so.Once you figure out the amount,write it down somewhere so next time you will know.That's all i have for you bro'.It's going to be a little slow and tedious,but if you plan on keeping the bike a long time,it is well worth it.Ride On! Good luck.

Oil is at the "add oil mark" on my ultra classic do I need to add oil before I get it to operating temp to change the oil?

Not if you are changing the oil, just do the change, then check your oil when the engine is fully warmed up and the bike is level.

When I check the oil it smells of gas motor run strong but why would there be gas in the oil?

your oil may be breaking down,try a really good oil change with a fram oil filter,recommend that you use castrol 30 weight oil in winter and 40 weight in summer,also add lucas oil treatment in with the oil change,it gives great top of motor lubrication,not like regular oil.fram filters are great too,they won't fold under pressure like a cheap one would.when you refine oil,it turns into gas.if you've been using a quick oil change place,stop. find a mechanic that can change your oil. you go to parts store,purchase an oil change kit with 30 weight castrol oil,tell them you want to add lucas oil treatment in on the oil change and have them look up your engine to see how many quarts of oil it takes,make sure they know that you want to add the lucas in on the oil change so you don't overfill the oil.after you've purchased the oil change kit,then go to your mechanic with your supplies and have them change your oil.after you've done this once,you'll do it all the time.quick oil change places buy their oil in bulk and as cheap as possible,then charge you for quality products.they break down quicklyand add very little lubrication to your engine.thank you for choosing

I have a 2002 ford focus. two weeks ago after a oil change at a quick-lube joint. i noticed a oil leak on driveway. took it to my mechanic and he replaced valve cover gaskets and oil switch. i noticed...

if the place where you had the oil changed used a oil flush pressure system they could of damaged the seal as they not supposed to have that amount of pressure on them, this would damage all or most of the oil seals. a good oil change is were they dont use one of these systems they cause more problems over time. if you do an oil change its best to do it your self or at a garage you trust. and ask them to add flush cleaner this is a substance you add to the oil and run for 15 min in the engine and then do the oil change, you dont always need to use a flush only if there is a build up of oil carbon in the engine. some build up is normal but if you change the oil regular you don't need to flush as its only old oil that needs changing and flushing. hope this helps

When changing the oil on the 2800 psi presher washer were do you add the oil, it looks like there are 3 places to add oil a black cap a gray cap and a red cap.

Normally you would add oil using the same hole that you were using to check the oil which allows the new oil to go into crankcase.

After changing oil the cap on oil tank keeps blowing off.

Sounds like you've overfilled the oil. The stick has two marks on it. The top mark is 'FULL HOT" and the lower mark is 'FULL COLD". If you changed the oil filter, you add three quarts of oil. If you did not change the filter, you only put 2.7 quarts in the tank. The next time the cap blows off, as long as the oil level is above the lower mark, do not add anymore oil and see what happens. As long as the oil level is between the marks, do not add oil. Sportsters are notorious for this. People check the oil before they go riding and "top it off". Bad move. As long as the oil is between the lines when cold, ride the bike to warm it up, and then maybe add a bit if it's low. Do not bring it up to the top line even if the engine is warm. About half way is good enough.

Good Luck

When do I add Oil?

Really you should not have to add oil. But to find out have jeep on level surface and use the dip stick to check. Check with car off, pull dip stick out and wipe off and reinsert, Pull back out and read the stick only add if it is low. Do not over fill.
