Check your owners manual for the following info: Engine oil requirements, which would be what engine oil weight is right for your car. It will be #'s such as 5W 30. Use the weight recommended by chevy. The manual will also tell u how much u need. Go to an auto parts store, where u will need to purchase the following: 1. engine oil (they should be able to look up the weight requirement for your car, 2. oil filter, get a quality filter. An easy way to determine that is the weight of the filter. A good filter has a valve in it to prevent oil from draining out when the engine is off. This way when u start the car, u have oil pressure right away. You can also ask for advice on what they feel is a good filter.3. Filter wrench, to remove the oil filter. You can determine the correct size by seeing if it fits on the new filter. Ok, take it all home and: the car should be at operating temperature, either jack up the car or buy a set of ramps to drive it up on so u can get under the car. Make sure the car is supported on safety stands, never go under a car w/ just a jack holding it up. Block the rear wheels front and back so the car can't roll, put the emergency brake on, leave it in gear if it's a standard trans, in park for auto trans. Go under the car to remove the oil pan drain bolt. Be careful as surfaces and oil will be hot. Have a good size plastic pan, or something similar (u can also buy a oil drain container especially made for this) under the car. Remove the drain plug, letting the oil drain for 15 minutes or so, to let it drain completely. The reason u drain it w/ engine hot is to drain the oil quickly and completely, cold oil would take a long time to drain. Remove the oil filter w/ your wrench. I assume your filter is accessed from under the car. A few (not many) allow u to remove the filter from above in the engine compartment. With a clean rag, wipe off the area where the oil filter screws on. Make sure the old gasket isn't stuck on (rare, but it does happen). Also clean the area around the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt, do not use brute force to tighten it, you want it on good and snug, not loose or so tight you ruin the threads. Now coat the gasket on the new oil filter w/ new clean engine oil, screw on hand tight. Go by the oil filter instructions on the box, usually u tighten til it just makes contact w/ the engine, then tighten one half to one full turn more.
Add the required amount of oil, start up and let it run for a few minutes, check for any leaks. Check your level several times a month so u know how often to add oil. U shouldn't wait 'til its down a quart to add oil, if its down half a quart, top it off. Your engine will reward u with a long life w/ this care (change every 3k miles). Don't overfill ever, as too much oil is bad for the engine, it causes the oil to foam, and u loose your lubrication. Many garages, town and city recycling centers, oil change shops will accept used oil to recycle. Whoa! seems a lot more complicated than it really is! Let me know if u have any questions. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Change oil in 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic, procedure?

i think the oil filter is at the front behind a round finned cover, if you find the drain plug it should be right above it, it shoud tell you how much oil it takes right next to the filler

SOURCE: motor not pushing boat after two thousand rpm's

The prop is cavitating. The outdrive is not trimed under enough or the prop is damaged (providing it is the correct prop.)

I have a 1984 yamaha enticer that has a seized motor... Yes i know if u dump oil down into the piston thatll work but my problem is that the one piston is down so when i pour oil in it just leaks out how...


Hi, the only way you can move that piston while it sits in the cylinder is to find the main crank shaft, (located just above the oil pan). Fit a strong wrench to the bolt that attaches the pully to the crank, then, slide a length of steel pipe over the wrench for leverage. Start to rock the crank back and forth slightly but forcefully. Any oil that you poured will have seeped around the piston by now. make sure the other pistons are well oiled and give it a try. Good luck.

2005 Mercury 50hp 2-stroke outboard motor very sluggish when accelerating, stalled twice when trying to exceed 50% throttle capacity. Last time I used my boat was about two months ago, so I don't think bad...


The carberator is gravity fed and there is propbably gunk in it, when you give it more throttle, it needs more gas but can't get it. Then a build up of gas in the float bowl occurs and nothing works right. It has happened to me and its aggravating, do a complete rebuild on the carb or just replace it and you will be happier quicker.

Hope this helps, Coachtheune

2008 Yamaha vx deluxe will only run about 30 mph


if the motor is reaching full revs look at the jet assemby for fouling or prop damage. If it is not reaching full revs get authorised mechanic to fix it, it will be cheaper in the long run.

Yamaha ar 230 engine middle lightcome on in on both tach and shut


With the newer yamaha jet boats your route of easiest resistance is gonna be to take the boat to a Yam dealer so they can put a diagnostic machine on it. Alot of sensor problems can be solved much easier and cheaper after running the diagnostic and pinpointing exactly what the issue is. The lights on the dash are for high temp and low oil. If you checked the water temp and it seemed ok, check your oil levels.
