I think it uses the same 20W50 oil that any other Harley uses. A phone call to any dealer will tell the story. I can't say for certain because I don't work on those or the Twin Cams. I work on the older Harleys. I don't know anything about the V-Rods. Sorry.

Good Luck

Hchanging rod bearings

Are you referring to connecting rod bearings? If so, I hope you're tooled up and VERY mechanically inclined. If that's the case, you'll want to pull the engine, mount it on an engine stand, remove the bottom components (oil pan, oil pump and any other components that would interfere with a complete and open access to the crankshaft). It is possible to change the rod bearings without removing the top of the engine (intake manifold and carb, valve cover, rocker arm, camshaft, valves, lifters and heads), but I wouldn't recommend you try unless you're a real motorhead. In fact, I wouldn't recommend that you even attempt any of this unless you're very experienced at auto mechanics. Of course, if you're NOT talking about connecting rod bearings, you can disregard everything I've said so far, and elaborate on what you actually want to do.

2004 yukon 6.o new oil pump still low oil pressure

main and rod bearings; when they wear out enough they reduce oil pressure. replacement of a dipstick tube o-ring is also an indication of a tired motor, especially if it was leaking significantly.

2002 Saturn coupe, S series, 1.9 duel overhead cam Pinging when accelerating

Still using the 5w30 oil that the manufacturer recommends.?? If the engine is a "higher" mile engine you need stronger protection. Could also be a need for plugs & wires (mis-fires). When it comes to oil, the average mechanic cannot tell you what 5w30 means. 5 thousandths protection (hot) between mating surfaces (rods & bearings, push rods & lifters). 30 thousands protection (cold) between surfaces. If its an older engine, I recommend a higher viscosity oil. 10w40, for an engine 100,000 -200,000 miles.(the gap between surfaces has to be higher as it ages, right??) If you keep your cars running into the 200,000 - 275,000 mile range, I start to use a 20w50 oil. Try a thicker, higher viscosity oil.

My car started pinging i pulled over to check the oil. the oil stick was dry. so i put 4 quarts of oil in the car. pinging quieted for a moment but then it came back even worse. what could it be? also...

You my friend are about to throw a rod... been there buddy its no fun. And yes if you have a warranty on the vehicle it might be fixed just dont tell them you let it run out of oil(shhh) seriously if you tell them that they wont fix it. that ping will turn into a bang and then if you keep driving it it will throw a rod and you car will just die. I would recommend taking it to the dealer immediately. Hope it works out for ya.

What is the recommended oil change interval for a 2004 toyota sequoia?

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The factory recommendation for oil changes is every 5,000 miles; that is based on normal driving.

If you are operating the vehicle in mountainous terrain, or towing a trailer, we would recommend changing the oil every 3,500 miles.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

depending all that is done about $300 dollars thats 12 lifters test 12 push rods replase rods $4.00 each rocker arm cover gasket oil filter and oil change afterwords. This does not include any replacement of oil pump or flushing which may be required, also would recommend a top engine clean before doing lifter replacement so when you change the oil once.

Can i0w 40 oil oppose to 5w 20 that is recommended in a 2007 dodge ram 1500 with hemi?

do not use 10W-40W, it will starve the engine rod and main bearings, use the 5W-20W as recommended, also thicker oils can blow the oil filter off, seen it a number of times.
