Question about 2005 Yamaha DT 125 X

1 Answer

The oil light on my dt125x is lit up. does that just mean any 2-strokr engine oil can go in the oil tank behind the back left pannel. confused cos the stuff thats already in there smells like it may be mixed with something other than oil.

If you don't put pre-mixed fuel in your tank then the tank in the back is probably a fuel mix oil tank. You'd use an injector oil to fill that so it has something to mix into your fuel. Engine crankcase oil is a different thickness and wouldn't work for that application.

What is this and where does it go I found it by my engine in my 78 caprice classic


It is a pressure or a vacuum switch. It is the sort that puts a warning light on if the engine oil pressure or steering hydraulic pressure is low or the brake vacuum is low.

It appears remarkably clean for the first two and if it had dropped out of one of the places where such things are fitted the effects would be immediate. Perhaps it is an old one left behind after a new one has been fitted, resting somewhere inaccessible to the mechanic and finally dropped out to cause confusion and bewilderment.

Such switches are usually marked with the pressure or vacuum values.

We drained the oil on my 2001 harley sportster 1200 and when I put the new oil in it didnt seem to take that much before it almost overflowed. We then went to drain a little out and nothing comes out the...


No, you're probably draining the small amount of oil that was in the crankcase. All Harley-Davidson engines other than the V-Rod (which I know nothing about) use a "dry sump" oil system. This means that it does not carry it's oil in the crankcase like other motorcycles do. It carries it's oil in a remote oil tank much like a NASCAR racing car. The oil pump pumps oil from the tank to the engine. Once the oil settles to the bottom of the engine, the pump's scavenger stage pumps the oil back to the tank. The oil drain for your Sportster is a piece of hose that plugs onto the frame down low on the left side of the bike back behind the engine. It plugs on just below the pivot for the swing arm. Pull the hose off and the oil will drain.

Good Luck

Chech engine light just came on i was going to get the oil change on monday does the oil have anything to do with the light coming on


  • The light on the left side of the instrument panel is a maintenance required light. If that is the light lit up then yes this means time for an oil change.
  • If the light lit up is on the right side of the instrument panel then this is the Check Engine Light and a scan will need to be done to see what is going on with the car.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Engine oil light lit up and says Dist:3750mi


Nissan recommends changing the oil every 3750 miles. The computer is reminding you that you have driven 3860 miles without yet changing the oil.

Bike Sitting For 2 Years .. Need help


You say the bike is a custom so I don't have a good idea of what we're dealing with here but it shouldn't be that difficult.

Most custom bikes have carbureted engines. The first thing to do is drain the fuel tank and get some fresh fuel and a good battery. Check the oil in the tank. As long as the oil is showing on the dip stick, proceed to start the engine. Do not add oil at this time because the engine may be "oil sumped". When they do this, the oil in the tank seeps past the check ball in the oil pump and accumilates in the bottom end of the engine. When you start the engine up, the oil pump will scavenge the oil out and back into the oil tank. Once the engine runs for a few minutes, then turn the engine off and check the oil level. Fill it to the lower mark on the stick, full cold level.

Now for the biggie, the carb. If the engine has been sitting for two years, the jets in the carb are probably clogged up. When the fuel left in the float bowl evaporated, it left behind a thick gummy deposit made up of the additives that are added to gasoline. This mess will plug up the jets in your carb. It would be advisable to remove the carb, disassemble it, and soak it in carb cleaner overnight. Then check all passageways in the carb and the jets to make sure they're open. Reinstall the carb and fire your bike up. If I were in the Yuma area, I'd do it all for you but I live in Georgia. Sorry but good luck getting it back going. It's not difficult. Just keep looking for "resources".

1996 Mercury 150 Nitro EFI outboard- just bought the boat, running fine on the lake for about 35 min. Motor is 2 stroke- oil injected, oil tank is full. While running at partial throttle, an alarm...


Dont have the manual in front of me...recollect that there's two types of warnings. The pulsating warning is oil (starts with 30 minutes of oil left) or the fuel filter (or sperator, something like that) may have water in it. Running outboard with cover off, is a little black box that would have a red light lit if that's the case. If oil full & no red light, may be oil injection system...would also check to make sure lines aren't pinched, etc. Mine has been specific to oil the two times its gone off.

The full non-pulsating is engine overheat. Not sure beyond that.

Not much, but hopefully gets you going.

Oil light comes on


Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.
