The oil is usually from the crank case breather pipe and is condensation. If you have done lots of miles, it is fairly normal. Clean the oil out every 2000 miles or so.

Oil filter location


The oil filter on your 2004 sunfire is under the air intake hose. you take this hose off by loosening the two clamps that hold it onto the air filter housing and the air intake. Under that is a black cap with a large hex head on it, i believe 1.25 inch. that is the oil filter cap. take that off and pull the used oil filter off the bottom.

I have a vstar 1100 i have oil in the breather box why


hi there this is a common problem with bikes the oil comes from a breather hose which is connected to your crankcase which blows and stops unwanted fibers getting into your bottom end i would firstly start by replacing your air-filter. if it is a huge puddle of oil you could be in a little bit of trouble. you may have piston rin or valve stem damage. if u test your compression on the engine it will let you know.. thanks ladjr2

It doesn,t turn over at all has new spark plug bowl is full gas lines are good pull cord is good help


Remove spark plug and and ensure there is actually a spark when the machine is cranked.
Ensure air filter is clean. Foam elements can be washed with hot water and detergent, squeezed dry in a cloth and re-oiled with a teaspoon of engine oil spread through the foam. Paper elements can be cleaned with compressed air blown from the inside of the filter but ideally should be replaced.
Check fuel lines aren't kinked or blocked restricting fuel flow.
Ensure fuel filter isn't dirty. This is probably located at the end of the fuel line in the tank.
Remove the air filter and check the choke plate closes ok when choke is turned on.
Air locks in the fuel lines will also cause this symptom. These can be caused by running the machine with low fuel level in the tank and cutting upside down or at a sharp angle.
To remedy this keep pressing the primer button i present until it feels spongy and fills with fuel.

Engine shuts off when rolling the throttle


They could be related - but what you need to do is first clean out the oil that has collected in the air filter housing - and replace the air filter. Then, clean the oil from the engine - Simple Green and an old tooth brush works great for this. Wash the engine and surrounding areas with soap and water.
Now, with things cleaned off, you'll be able to tell where the oil is coming from after a short test ride. It could be that the oil you saw near the head gasket was actually running from the air box. Hopefully, a new air filter will cure the problems you had with low power and poor throttle response.

Won't start


You did not **** water into the fuel filter. You pulled water into the air filter. Depending upon how much, you may have hydro-locked the engine. (this can bend or break connecting rods in the engine) Remove all spark plugs and turn the engine over. If water is present in any cylinders this will purge it. dry off or replace plugs and dry off all sensors and connectors. If engine starts and runs, change engine oil immediately. Any knocking, banging etc from inside engine means you have severe internal damage.

Oil is coming out of my air filter on my 1986 cabriolet vw


How many miles are on it? Check and clean the crank case ventilation (from the top of the valve cover to the air filter box) if there is a pcv valve check it and you may have to clean it. If not you have blow by some of the compress is going around the pistons into the motor and blow the oil out.

Popcorn won't pop


Hints for getting the best popped corn: Don't pop popcorn in butter as the butter will burn before it can get hot enough. Popcorn pops best in temperatures of 400-460 degrees F. If your oil starts to smoke which happens at 500 degrees F, you've got it too hot. Any oil will work. Use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. For your health, you should choose a light cooking oil or better yet, skip the oil all together and use an air popper. The movie houses use yellow dyed coconut oil which does a great job of popping the popcorn although there are healthier oils you can use than coconut oil. To see if you have the oil hot enough, drop a couple of kernels into the hot oil. If it's hot enough, they should pop in just a few seconds. If you don't have a popper, any thick bottomed, high walled pan will do. Popcorn can even be easily made in a Dutch oven over a camp fire. When your oil is the right temperature, pour in your popcorn, shaking the pan to cover all the seeds in oil. Do this with the lid on to prevent burns should the hot oil try to splash out of the pan. Using a lid helps the kernels to heat more evenly and keeps the popping corn from flying all over the place. (If you are using a popcorn popper, shaking it isn't necessary because of it's rounded bottom.) As it begins popping, it's important to continue to shake a flat-bottomed pan. This helps any un-popped kernels to settle to the bottom of the pan where they can pop. As soon as you hear the popcorn stop popping, pull the pan off the heat and pour the popcorn into another container. It will burn if you leave it in the hot pan.

What can you do if you've done everything right but your popcorn still doesn't pop very well? As mentioned above, popcorn must have about 13.5 to 14% moisture to pop properly. This is because as the popcorn kernel is heated, the moisture inside the seed is turned to steam creating a huge inner pressure. As this pressure continues past the shell's strength to keep it in, the skin ruptures and the inner starchy layer of the kernel greatly expands and turns itself inside out. If the moisture isn't there, this pressure build-up can't happen. If you find your popcorn has excessive old maids (un-popped kernels) in it, the problem might be that it lacks moisture. Place 3 cups of un-popped popcorn into a quart bottle. Add a tablespoon of water, put the lid on and shake it to get water on all the kernels. If the water puddles in the bottom of the bottle, shake it again every 10 minutes until enough of the water has been absorbed to prevent puddling. Now let it sit for two or three days while the moisture is evenly distributed into the kernels. If it still doesn't pop correctly, repeat this process but add no more than 2 teaspoons of water the second time. Yes, it's also possible to get it so moist it won't pop, so definitely, don't add water a third time. Lastly, you can even take your old maids that didn't pop, rejuvenate them with water using the above process and re-pop them. (With a measurement of three cups un-popped popcorn, 1 tablespoon of water will increase the moisture content 2.5%. A teaspoon of water will increase the moisture level almost 1%. Air dried popcorn will probably never get below a 10% moisture content on it's own, so adding even two tablespoons of water would be pushing it, raising the moisture content to 15% - that is if it started out at a moisture level of 10%.)
