The lower plugs would be your drain plugs. You would fill the gear box with oil up to the highest hole.

How can I change oil in transfer case?

If you want to know how here it is. Transfer cases have 2 plugs. A drain plug on the lower back of the case. And it has a fill/check plug. Remove top plug first to vent case. Remove bottom plug to drain oil. Replace bottom plug and tighten. You will need a pump or squeeze bottle to fill the case. Fill through the top hole until oil comes out of hole. Replace top plug...that's it.
Refer to owners manual for oil weight. Probably 90 but check to be sure.

      Park the Honda Foreman on flat ground and leave the engine running for 5 minutes to allow the engine to warm up. Place the oil drain pan under the crank case drain plug. Turn the engine off.

      Remove the drain plug from the under side of the crank case using the ratchet set. Allow the engine oil to drain into the oil pan. Replace the plug to the bottom of the crank case and tighten the plug using the ratchet set.

      Remove the small screw from the side of the crank case using the Allen wrench. Remove the cap labeled "OIL" from the top of the crank case. Insert the funnel into the hole where the oil cap was.

    • 4
      Pour Honda 4-stroke engine oil into the funnel until the oil starts to come out of the hole where the small screw was on the side of the crank case. Once the oil starts to come out of the hole, stop pouring and replace the screw. Remove the funnel and replace the oil cap to the top of the crank case.

Hyo gt250 comet: i am replacing gearbox oil, how do i know when enough is in? and does it go in the screw hole up top or the screw on the side?

There should be on top of either the left or the right side case an oil screw. It either has a slot in it or a finger grip on it. If your just topping it up and it has a sight window usually on the right side case down the bottom or sometimes on the left, it sits between the 2 marks and upper and lower mark.
If your filling it from empty it should be written on the filler how much oil it takes or will have two sets of numbers the higher is when you are replacing the oil filter and the second lower is when your just replacing the oil only.
Best to have a measuring device, most oil bottles do. Only fill it with the correct grade oil and with the correct amount. You should have a hand book it will tell you in there how to do it.

I want to know the oil level at a 1981 xlh harley 1000 when cold

Your dipstick should have two marks on it. The top mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Check the oil level with the bike on the side stand. My advice is to never add oil to the oil tank when the engine is cold. As long as you can see oil on the stick, ride the bike until it reaches operating temp and then add oil only when it's below the lower mark when hot. I never "top the oil off". The reason you never add oil to the tank when cold is that if the bike is not ridden for a period of time, the oil will seep by the check valve in the oil pump. It does this because the oil tank is located higher on the frame than the engine. The oil collects in the engine cases. If you "top the oil tank off", when the engine is started and it pumps the oil from the case into the tank, the tank is now overfilled. It will blow the filler cap out and oil will go everywhere making a big mess.

Good Luck

How do i check the oil because i just bought a 2009 suzuki bulevard but there dip stick? and the dealer ship didnt give me an owners manuel

On newer model bikes there is no dipstick, just a cap.
so to check the oil level, you need to look on the engine cover itself.
there will be a sight glass, with 2 hash marks on the case .
lower line is minimum, top line is maximun

If the sight glass is too dirty, warm up the bike and then change the oil and filter.
Then watch the sight glass as you fill the oil.

if bike is equipped with a center stand, always check oil on center stand.
if no center stand then check oil with bike on kickstand.

The sight glass will be either on the right side lower engine cover
or left side lower engine cover.
it it round and about the size of a quater.

Hope to be helpful.
best regards
Big al

What grade oil do i need in 04 fusion 1.6 automatic and do i check level hot or cold?

I recommened you use 10W-30W if you live in a warm climate or 5W-30W in a cold climate, always check fluids like oil hot to allow for expansion. Don't use any heavier oil than listed above.

I f you have changed oil put in 1 qt and check dipstick, then slowly fill from there checking level periodically as you go. buy 3 qts at the store, buy a quality motorcycle oil NOT car oil. I recommend Castrol Syntec Actevo 10-40wt...Good luck to you friend....Tim

Transmission fliud

To check the trans fluid you have to have car on a lift or over a pit (like at oil change place) so it is level.

On the lower pass. side of trans. right near the rt. front drive axle there is a small plug (takes 7/16" wrench) Pull plug and fuild should run out W/ engine hot and running.

If you need to add there is a red cap on the driver side top of the trans right at the back of the engine. Unscrew cap and fill thru small hole.
