Needto lubricate rear wheel bearings on a huffy single speed bike


as most bikes do not have seals on the wheel axles , it is possible to lay the bike on the side , use machine oil on the hub and axle area and spin the wheel while allowing drops of oil onto the axle bearing hub area
or you can take the hub apart and fill with a very light grease

    How do you add transmission fluid to a 2000 town country


    The tranny fluid is added through the tranny dipstick (make sure it's not the oil dipstick). Fluid color should be red and the dipstick should have instructions on how to check level (car in park, engine at idle). Funnels are your friend here.
