Question about 2004 Yamaha YZ 125

1 Answer

When checking the crank oil, I unscrewed the plug where you would actually pour it in, right next to to kick starter, and I can not see any oil. I cant find a site glass window either. When I stick my finger in there is oil I can feel. But is there anyway to check the level? My top end just got done and I know they filled it.

The oil level is determined through the level indicator at the bottom end of the plug. You will see oil in it. The oil level must be in the safe level.

Oil ran out while driving..plug had came out. put oil & plug in & truck will not start. 2002 ford f250

You ran the truck out of oil? If so then you have seized the engine up and it wont start again. If your lucky the engine could be rebuilt using the same block but the internals will all need to be replaced.

Starting problems

Well its cranking so not the starter and its got the juice so not the battery maybe. Check to see if its got the correct voltage to kick it over. Could be a fuel problem replace plugs wires and fuel filter. Also check you oil level maybe its low and wont start bc its low. I think it has a oil level sensor that may prevent it from turning over.

Engine won't turn

Is the belt off? But if the engine overheated then you may have locked up the engine compleatly, nothing will break it loose.

Cranks real hard like battery is almost dead.

It will crank easier with plugs out because you've got no compression working against it. Take a good look at your cables to make sure they didn't heat up & burn off a few strands. Clean all connections good make sure they are 100%. You may have to have a draw test done on starter, just to see if maybe it's getting worn down. Only other thing that comes to mind is timing. If it's belt, & not too hard to pull cover & double check all marks are aligned, then I would do that.

Topping up gearbox oil on 99 Hyundai Lantra (manual)

You can actually do it from the top if it is similar to a 2001 Elantra??? On your right center of the tranny, there should be two big bolts I believe a 17mm one on the bottom left the other top right of the other. The bottom left is the drain plug the top right is where you fill it. If you want to make things easier you can remove the air cleaner and the air cleaner housing then unscrew the sensor on top of the tranny you can poor it in from the top. You will need to then unscrew the fill hole (Top right bolt) Pour the lube in to the hole where you had taken out the sensor until it pours out of the fill hole. Sounds like more work but by doing this you will avoid making a mess trying to fit the squeeze bottle into the tiny hole. Hope this makes Sense????

XT 125 oil problem

Hi Pete!
I used to have a Xt 500 and loved it to bits, the oil filler then and presumably now is on the right side of the engine by the kick start (If you have one) it is a large black plastic screw topped item which will unscrew (Anticlockwise) to reveal a long shaft (Dip stick).
There you go!
Remember to keep bike upright to check level?
Any concerns please get back to me!

Oil level

Hi saturnin

That's the best way to get it right. Do what the manual tells you to do.

To check the oil
  1. Put the bike on level concrete on the center stand
  2. Check the oil with the dipper in the oil fill hole.
  3. Check it hot 10 mins after turning off the bike by unscrewing the oil fill plug, wipe the stick, and just dip it without screwing it back in, and check it for level.
  4. Pour in small amounts at a time to top it right up to the mark, but never ever over fill it.
  5. Screw back in the plug/dipper.
Hope this helps, am happy to answer any other questions you may have about it. Cheers!!
