If it is you will smell it also it would thin the oil if the oil looks white or tan you may have a blown head gasget do a compression test that should tell you same with lower unit oil if water gets in it turns tan

2003 Chevy Trailblazer V-6 4WD. I just got the oil changed. I think I made a mistake and told them to put in 10w-30 instead of the 5w-30 that the vehicle was used to. Since then, my SUV has been sputtering...


CHECK YOUR OIL DIP STICK MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ENOUGH OIL IN THE CRANKCASE.YOUR ENGINE CALL FOR 7 QUARTS OF OIL. IF YOU HAVE THE INLINE 6 CYLINDER.CHECK OIL LEVEL ON DIP STICK.YOU SHOULD BE AT FULL MARK.AND NOT ON THE LOW MARK.IF SO YOU NEED ADD LITTLE MORE OIL TO GET TO THE FULL MARK.YOU CAN USE 10W 30 FOR SPRING AND SUMMER WEATHER. 5W 30 FOR COLD WEATHER COLD CLIMATE.I RUN 10W 30 YEAR ROUND IN ALL MY NEW CHEVY AND OLDSMOBILE VECHICLE HAD NO PROBLEMS.IF OIL LEVEL CORRECT YOU COULD HAVE FUEL PROBLEMS.COULD HAVE STOPPED UP FUEL FILTER, BAD GAS,

Bike sat for 2 months.it was full of fuel when it was parked


Sometimes when a bike sits, the floats get corroded and stick and sometimes they stick open allowing fuel to overfill the carburetor, if the intake is open when parked, the fuel will run right into the combustion chamber, pass by the piston rings and into the cranckcase.
I saw this happen serveral times.

Check your oil level and its probably overfilled, but its a gas and oil mixture so do not just drain out enough oil to the correct level, drain all the oil and change the oil filter.

Now you'll also have to pull the carburetor and have in thouroughly cleaned, jets removed and soaked, rinsed and blown through with compressed air.

After your carbs are cleaned and a new oil change your bike will be good to go.

Some people prefer to use seafoam added to their gasoline, to help prevent the floats from sticking and the jets clogging.
If possible it is also helpful to start the bike at least weekly and let it warm up to temp.
especially if you plan not to ride it for a while. If you fear that the gas will run into the motor again from sitting, be sure to turn the fuel petcock to off.

Oil change instructions and oil recommendation (lost manual)


Hello, oil to use in the engine depends on engine if it is a Kohler you will want to use 10w30 approx 2qts. The Briggs & Stratton engines use HD30 or SAE30 approx 1.5qts. Use the dip stick to ensure you have the right amount and don't over fill.

To change the oil:

  • run engine about 10 minutes to warm up oil so it flows better
  • at the bottom of the dip stick there is either a valve or plug
  • open the valve or plug and let the oil drain (I use an old gallon oil container with a funnel) leave the dip stick out
  • while the oil drains; change the spin on oil filter
  • once all the old oil has drained replace the plug or close the valve
  • wipe down the funnel and use it to refill the new oil
  • use the dip stick to ensure proper fill level
I also recommend that you replace the air filter at the same time, if the engine can't get air is can't run efficiently.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

When do I add Oil?


Really you should not have to add oil. But to find out have jeep on level surface and use the dip stick to check. Check with car off, pull dip stick out and wipe off and reinsert, Pull back out and read the stick only add if it is low. Do not over fill.

2008 ninja 250 engine oil looks green color


Just replace the oil, its cheap enough to do and costs less than rebuilding the engine.
the white foam on the oil cap is normal its just fine water particals built up, change the oil and take the bike on a run.
so does the bike run fine with the jet kit and exhaust change ? you dont explain your self well.

My car has been sitting in my garage for 4 months should i change the oil what else do you reccomend i do to the car


If it needs and oil change, change it. If you haven't been driving it then no I wouldn't worry about the oil if it looks good. Pull out the dipstick, is the oil honey colored, maybe a little darker like maple syrup? If so it is good, if it is black and runs off the dip stick like water, change it. As said above check your tire pressure. Also check your tranny fluid, when a transmission sits over concrete for extended periods of time it "draws" out fluid, so if there is some spots on the ground I'd check the tranny fluid (People will say I'm crazy but I've seen it happen to the tranny fluid). Also I'd suggest checking the battery wells if your battery has them. Finally I would start the car if possible atleast ten minutes a month while it is sitting in the garage for extended periods, or if it is not going to be driven/started for a while add fuel stablizer to keep your gas good. If everything looks good (four months isn't that long) you are probably ok. If it gets cold where you are, and the garage wasn't heated, and the tank wasn't full of gas add some heat or something to take water out of the tank due to condensation.
