Oil leak

If the hose comes out the top of the transmission, this is the transmission vent line.

Make sure the line doesn't "dip" anywhere alone it's run, causing a low area where residual oil would "pool", then blow out under pressure.

Also, make sure transmission fluid isn't over-filled.

My evo motor is puking oil out breather and once it wrms up it lose oil perssure

You need to look into the oil tank with the engine running and check to see if your oil is being returned back to the tank. If not, you probably have sheared an oil pump drive gear key. If the oil is pumping back into the tank, everything is fine. If you can't see the oil coming back into the tank, disconnect the oil return line, take the spark plugs out of the heads, and spin the engine with the starter. OIl should come out of the hose in squirts. If not, you have an oil pump problem. If it does come out of the hose, everything should be alright.

Harley engines are noted for "no oil pressure when idling hot". The system is a high volume low pressure system. This is because of the use of roller bearings on the crank pin instead of insert style bearings. Don't let an oil pressure gauge scare you.

Where is the oil drain line at the front or the back?

Harley Davidson

Sportster = At the back, oil tank drain hose connected to a nipple on the frame with a hose clamp.

Twin Cam = Under the motor you'll see 2 plugs, one vertical and one horizontal.
the vertical bolt is the oil drain plug. The horizontal bolt is the Transmission drain screw.

Evo = Back of the bike, oil tank drain hose connected to a nipple on the frame with a hose clamp.

Some may be modified and just be a hose with a bolt stuck in it with a hose clamp.

Changint Oil on my 2001 Fatboy. Pulled drain plug and a half a cup of oil drained out. Pulled dip stick to see oil tank is still full. Disconnected drain line from tank leading to motor. Found it to be...

Sound like you pulled the wrong plug to me. The oil drain plug in under your bike. Look at the oil tank from the right side of your bike. Near the rear of the tank, there's a large hose that runs downward towards the rear of the transmission. It continues down and looks like it connects to a crossmember on the frame. If you'll look under that crossmember, you'll find a plug that uses an Allen wrench or hex key to remove.

Do not remove the oil line that goes from the tank to the engine. However, you said that you found it to be plugged. Plugged with what? If the oil infeed line got plugged, it's because something has gotten into the tank. Drain the tank and check to find out what is inside the tank.

Good Luck

Radiator is leaking, on the drivers side of car. 2002 Chevy Avalanche, 4 wheel drive trcuk. One owner, 106000 miles on it.

Removal & Installation To Remove:
To avoid being burned, do not remove the radiator cap or surge tank cap while the engine is on or is still hot. The cooling system will release scalding fluid and steam under pressure if radiator cap or surge tank cap is removed while the engine and radiator are still hot.
If the vehicle's coolant is low, drained out, or has repeatedly needed coolant or water added to the system, then the system should be completely flushed.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Inlet hose from the radiator
    • Radiator outlet hose from the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud
    • Surge tank hose
    • Vent inlet hose from the radiator
    • Surge tank hose
    • Engine oil cooler lines from the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines from the radiator Remove the radiator chevy_sub25_02-04_rad_rem.gif

    • Radiator bolts
    • Radiator from the vehicle
To Install:
  1. Install or connect the following:
    • Radiator to the vehicle
    • Radiator bolts and tighten the bolts, Torque to: 18 ft-lbs (25 Nm)
    • Engine oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Transmission oil cooler lines to the radiator
    • Radiator vent inlet hose to the radiator
    • Lower fan shroud
    • Outlet hose to the radiator
    • Inlet hose to the radiator
  2. Fill the cooling system.
  3. Test drive the vehicle to confirm the repairs.

Where does the oil go from tank when bike sits a long time?

This is what we call "oil sumping" around here. On the soft tail line or any other line of Harley where the oil tank is higher than the oil pump, the oil will seep past the check ball in the oil pump and leak into the crankcase of the engine. When the engine is started up, it will "puke" the oil out. Now, up until the introduction of the Evo engine, the engine would puke on the ground under the bike out the breather tube. Now with the Evo engine and the EPA's regulation that crankcase ventilation fumes have to be fed back through the intake, it pukes into the breather. An even bigger mess. So, what we do whenever we think we've got this situation is put a pan under the shovelhead and panhead bikes, On the Evos and Twin Cams, we take the air breater cover and the air filter out before the fire the engine. It's a mess either way you look at it. I don't think the Twin Cams are as bad as the Evo engines due to the different type of oil pump.

How do you drain the engine oil out of the oil tank on a 2004 883 harley davidson sportster

There is a hose that comes down between the rear down tubes on the frame, it goes back and attaches to the the frame. It doesn't look like it should be a drain hose but it is. Make sure you bring the temp up on the bike before you drain the oil and check the oil tank before you refill, I usually need to use a turkey baster to remove the last of the old oil out of mine. When you refill the tank make sure to only fill it to about hal lf way between the low and full marks on the dip stick to reduce blow by. Also don't forget to put about 4 ounces in the oil filter to prime the motor.
