Any oil that is JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. 10w-40 for cold climate. 20w-50 for warm climate/touring. Do not use any oil that says Energy Conserving on the label . It will shorten the life of your wet clutch and transmission gears. Synthetic oils will help your bike run cooler and shift easier. I have not heard of a dipstick being available for your cycle. Always be sure to hold the bike level when checking the oil so you get an accurate reading of the level.

How frequent to change engine oil


Depending on your usage and recomendation by manufaturer.
Alternatively you can remove the dip stick fitted with the oil filler hole in your bike. Observe the colour and smell stiking to the dip stick. If the oil colour is very black and smells like burnt, replace the oil. Use the same grade.

How much 90 wt. oil does the transmission take? nothing on the dip stick.


First off, if it's an automatic transmission you DON'T put 90 wt oil in it! It uses automatic transmission fluid. Depending how low it's down it could take anywhere from 3 - 6 qts of automatic trans fluid. Have a shop look at it for you.

How much oil what wt.


Most any kind of 4-cycle motor oil like 10W-30 will work in these motors. After draining the old oil replace the drain plug. There are two types of motor oil fill holes: 1. If you have a motor with the oil fill/check hole on the bottom of the motor and a small screw-in plug either with or without a small dip stick on it; with the motor level, fill the crank case with oil until it is up to the threads on the oil fill/check hole. 2. If you have a motor with a long dip stick that goes into a filler tube at the top of the motor, again with the motor level, put in about half a quart of oil and use the dip stick to check the oil level. If not full, add quarter quart amounts and check again until the oil is at the full mark on the dip stick. Do not overfill the crank case with oil. Most motors will take about one quart of oil but it varries so watch to see the oil level come up to the proper level.

Where do you add the oil on a DeWalt 3100psi pressure washer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

From reading everything I can find, i.e User's manual & parts manual the only thing you add oil too is the engine. The pressure pump does not have a liquid sump.

You can look at parts here detail D:
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/dewalt-dpd3100-pressure-washer-parts-c-1009_7440_7445.html

So too add oil to the engine you would remove the dip stick from the crank case located on the opposite of the side of the engine as the oil sensor.

I recommend you use 30 WT SAE oil for 3 oil changes then on the 4th oil change use an HD 30 WT oil. The oil drain plug is located in the center of the side of the engine crank case base. On the 5th Oil change switch back to SAE 30 WT oil. Oil brands are not really important. They all have to meet SAE the same standards to carry the label of SAE. (Yes you can use a generic 30 WT SAE oil )
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

The type best used is "Genuine Subaru Automatic Transmission Fluid Type-HP or IDEMITSU ATF HP. you add it through the dip stick hole. You may also wish to add a transmission leak oil to swell the gaskets and stop the leak add it the same way if you choose to use it. both of these should be available at your local auto parts store like NAPA.

Where is transmission oil located in the car?


do you mean..dip stick? oil filter? or something like that?

if it is a manual transmission they have a filler hole rather than a dip stick.........

if it is a automatic transmission the dip stick should be located under the hood in the right side "passengers side" or in the drivers side if it is a front wheel drive car....
