I own the same bike, this all depends on where exactly you are leaking the oil from, I know for myself, I had to replace basically the whole top end of the motor and all the gaskets, are you sure that its oil and not brakes?

I have a 345 OMC mustang skid steer. deutz 2cyl diesel engine it is leaking hyd oil from under bottom of machine not on rims or tires what could be leaking


Not a CAR...

Skid Steers... like yours: we call bob-cats here (USA)...

EASIEST & most common are cracked & loose hoses.

You have a serious hydraulic pump & piston system on all the configurations I've been able to pull.

Any damaged SEAL EVERYWHERE in that circuit
is going to be hydraulic oil...

Crank-case, transmission case... (etc.).

What you are going to have to do is pressure clean the wettest areas... wipe them down... and make your EYES & BRAIN take a look around for the most severe leak...

Fix it... and repeat the process until you
have things nice, tight and dry...

Left rear tire is flat and not seated on the rim


If the tire is not damaged and will hold air then you may be able to reseat the tire. One method if you do not have proper tools or do not want to go to a tire shop is to lubricate the sine of rim with a dish soap solution to make it slippery. Take a ratchet holddown strap and run it around the tire and tighten it to force the beads of the tire onto the rim. Then use a compressor to inflate the tire and the beads should snap back onto the rim. Once that is done, remove the strap, remount the tire on the tractor and inflate to the proper level.

I can think of two things not easily seen that can cause a banging when hitting small bumps;
The sway bar end links could be loose or broken.
The rear shock bolts, the lower bolt that holds the shock onto the rear axle, I've seen that mounting hole down there get enlarged, allowing the shock bolt to move about when hitting small bumps, causing a banging sound.
Check those two things out.

Back rims are stuck on truck even with lugs loose and truck jacked off ground. I tried putting one lug back on loose and kicking tire and tried putting it in 4L and neither trick worked. Seems like they...


Wheels often sieze themselves onto the hubs, Best thing is to jack the car up , place it on an axle stand, and hit the wheel rim, from inside out, place a piece of ragon the rimwhere you will hit it, one firm followed through hit, with a sledge hammer, you will need to rotate the wheel each time you hit the rim. Once the wheel is off, do what you must and on refitting, clean the area of the hub and the wheel parts where they mate with a wire brush, ideally after that if you can get some copperslip or grease, smear some around the wheel rim inner part and the hub where they mate. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use the grease on the wheel studs, nuts or bolts, as it can cause the wheel fixture (nut or bolt ) to undo and the wheel can fall off. Hope that helps

The level light for rear tires comes on, have to stop & fill the back tires with air every hour or so while driving. What could be causing this?


Have them both checked for leaks. May be a valve stem or corroded wheel, but the only way to know is to have them checked.
One good idea is to spray soapy water from a spray bottle all over the tire, rim area, and around the valve with the cap off. Flex the valve stem as they can crack and leak air.

Air is leaking from spoke how do i stop this


Your inner tube is leaking air. Remove the wheel and remove the tire on one side only (one bead over the rim edge) to allow access to the inner tube. remove the tube and the tire the rest of the way. Basic tire removing tools are neccesary such as tire spoons and rim protectors. check the rim for sharp points as well as any debris that might have punctured the tire. Check the inside of the tire very carefully as well. If somthing punctured the tire it might be still sticking out on the inside - a potential hazard to your fingers. Patch the tube or, better yet, replace it - a much more dependable solution. Install one bead of the tire back on and then the tube. Infate and deflate the tube with one side of the tire off the rim to ensure proper fit and arrangement of the tube inside the tire. Reinstall the tire and the wheel back into the bike following manufacturers recommended procedures and torques found in a service manual.

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
