The transmission oil should be changed every 5,000 miles or yearly. The "yearly" change interval is to prevent water buildup in the transmission due to condensation. If you get condensation in the transmission, the oil will float on top of the water. With the water on the bottom of the transmission, you won't detect it by checking the oil dipstick. I've seen many a four speed transmission worn out due to this. Haven't seen a five speed yet but I'd be willing to bet they aren't far off. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil. Drain, refill, stand the bike up straight and check the level with the dipstick. If you think changing your transmission oil every year is too expensive, look at the price of a quart of oil and the price of rebuilding a transmission. I think you'll think the way I do.

Good Luck
Steve

How do you change a starter clutch on an 2003 Night train, I did get the HD dealer change it last summer but won't fix it again ? ths clutch turn but just a grinding nose and wont starte ! need a video...


To change the clutch starter you must first take the starter off the bike. To do this, disconnect the battery and take it out of the oil tank. Then, drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Take the small bolt that holds the starter jackshaft off and remove the jackshaft. Go to the right side of the bike and take all or part of the exhaust off so that you can get to the starter. Take the bolts out and take the mounting brackets off the oil tank so that you can lift it slightly to get to the starter bolts. Do not remove any oil lines. Disconnect the battery cable and the small single wire from the starter. Remove the two large socket head bolts that hold the starter on and remove the starter. There is a coupling on the starter that connects the starter to the jackshaft. Mark the direction it goes in, counterbored end towards the jackshaft, so that you can put it back in the correct direction. Once you have the starter off the engine, you must disassemble the starter to get to the clutch that is inside of it. Go to this site to get an exploded view of the starter. http://www.bikebandit.com/2003-harley-davidson-softail-night-train-fxstb/o/m18393#sch609301 The starter clutch is part #252 in the diagram. Do not disassemble the starter motor itself, just take the front off the starter.

Good Luck
Steve

Where is tranny filter on 04 hyundai elantra? can a garage mech. do it? whats the best way to drain the tranny oil?


The filter would be inside the pan. The best fluid change is at an oil change place that uses t-tech style machine. This style will change the fluid in the torque converter, cooler and lines. It takes a container of new fluid and runs that in while old fluid runs out...done until clean fluid is coming out.

Changing Oil '04 GMC Envoy XUV


Guessing that this Truck has the V8???? Slide up underneath. The Drain plug is the Bold Closest to the Front and will be at a Slight Angle. There is one farther back But, This one is the Tranny. The Filter is Right around the Same area as the Drain Plug for the Oil. Just look up and you will see it.
