How do i change the oil?


Details vary according to the model, but generally:
1. Run the motor long enough that the crankcase is warm.
2. Put the bike up on the center stand.
3. Put a plastic dish/bowl that will hold a few liters underneath the oil drain (usually a bolt on the bottom of the crankcase, check a manual for exact location. )
4. Using the correct wrench, loosen the oil drain.
5. With rubber gloves on, hold the bottom of the oil drain bolt with one hand while you remove the bolt from the bike with the other hand. If the bolt (which may be magentized) has bits of metal clining to it, remove these with a cloth or paper towel.
6. The oil will drain into the pan. Rock the bike back and forth gnetly to get the last few drops out.
7. Now locate the oil filter and remove it (check manual again for how to do this). Replace with fresh filter.
8. Replace oil drain bolt, tightening to correct setting.
9. Fill with fresh oil to the correct amount. Bike should be ready to go.
10. Put used oil into container with lid, have it recycled at a grage or auto service scentre.

Oil change procedure on BMW R 1150 R 2002


Things you will need, Drain pan, 5 quarts oil, BMW oil filter, oil drain plug seal, can of brake cleaner, allen head wrench that fits your drain plug, a oil filter wrench for R- Bike filters, ratchet with a drive that fits the oil filter wrench, paper towels, latex gloves, funnel that fits into the oil fill plug hole. I also keep an old blanket around so I can lay on the ground. Warm the bike up for 5 mins then turn off. Get the bike on the center stand. Position your drain pan under the drain plug . I like to lay out everything im going to use on 4 or 5 paper towels . Remove the fill plug on the top of the left cylinder, set it on the paper towel to keep crud off it. Take your allen head wrench and loosen the drain plug , if you using an open pan to drain your oil , be prepared to fish out the drain plug, it will fall into the oil drain pan. Let the oil drain for 10 minutes. Take some brake clean and spray it all around the area of the oil filter to get rid of all the crud. All the dripping **** should flow into the drain pan if you bought one big enough. Buy drain pans that you can reseal when your done, put it in the car and take it to a recycling center. Put the oil filter wrench onto the ratchet. This oil filter wrench will slip into the filter slot under the engine. Just turn the ratchet untill the filter comes off. Should be clockwise. After the filter is removed, spray brake clean into the filter housing area to get rid off the **** and oil, wipe down with a paper towel and reach up into the filter housing to get all the ****, one final spray off brake clean should clean everthing out.
IF THERE IS NO MORE OIL COMING OUT OF THE DRAIN PLUG, put a new sealing ring on the drain plug and tighten up , snug not TIGHT.
Now before you put the new oil filter on , open up a quart of oil and fill the oil filter up about 90% with new oil, put a little oil on the rubber seal, put the the oil filter into your filter tool and insert the tool and filter up into the filter housing. Do this be hand so you will not strip the filter housing threads. The filter should go on very easy and you should be able to turn the filter at least 3-4 turns until its hand tight, Finish off with the ratchet, SNUG NOT TIGHT. Finish off with a little brake cleaning on the bottom of the engine housing to clean up any oil. Put the funnel in the fill hole and put in 3 quarts of oil. Read your owners manual for your oil capacity. There is a sight glass on the lower left side off the engine under the cylinder. Fill with oil until the oil level is in the middle of the sight glass. Put you fill cap back on. Turn you engine over a couple of times put dont let the bike run for more than 5 seconds, let the bike sit for 2-5 minutes to let the oil level settle, then check the oil level in the sight glass, it should be in the middle. if you dont see any oil in the sight glass after 2-5 minutes add a little oil at a time until the oil level in the sight glass is in the middle. Start the bike agian for 5-10 seconds , then check the oil level in the sight glass. You should be good to go. email me for any questions

HOWEVER, whe you refill it. make sure that you put in the correct type of oil. refer to your owner manual prior to putting in any old automatice trranny fluid as some tranny's require a sopecial type of oil, put in the wrong one and you fry your transmission.

Not trying to scare you, but i want to make sure that your REFER TO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL for the correct type of oil to put in after you drain it.

I have a 1997 porche 911 cab, I have never changed the oil and filter myself. Is it hard and how do you do it Thanks


Gravity does all the hard work. If you can figure out how to work a wrench, you can change your own oil. I'd pickup a repair manual, it will have the basics that tell you how to do a tune up/oil change etc.

You should also google Porsche groups, I'm sure there are a lot of greasemonkeys hanging out there who love to train noobies.

Its not difficult, but you need to make sure you have the right filter, and know where the drain plug is, before you get started.

Basically you drive the car a bit to get the oil warm, then you park it and set the brake. Put a drain pan under the oil pan near the drain plug. Unscrew the drain plug, wear rubber gloves, the oil will be hot, let the oil drain into the pan, now fish around in the pan for the drain plug that you dropped into the hot oil cause the oil was burning your fingers, when you find the drain plug, clean it off with a paper towel and open a beer. Now you need to remove the old oil filter, they usually either unscrew or are in a cannister, that service manual I told you to buy will tell you where it is and how to remove it. now open another beer, and put the clean filter in wherever the old filter came out of. Best to order a pizza now or you'll be drunk by the time you get this job done.

Okay clean filter is on, time to put the drain plug back in the oil pan, if its an aluminum pan, you probably should use a torque wrench to make sure you don't overtighten it and strip the threads, otherwise just put a new lock washer/crush washer on the plug (it should come with the filter)
Now add some quarts of your favorite oil after opening one more beer. That manual you bought will tell you exactly how many quarts of oil your engine will hold.

After its all together, check the dispstick to make sure you have enough oil in your car, then start the engine and move the car, look underneath for oil leaks, thats a sign that the drain plug isn't tight enough.

Take it for a test drive as soon as you sober up from all the beer. Easy peasy.

Where do you drain oil on honda gx25 mantis


jj505 has good and bad information.
Honda GX25 is a 4 stroke motor, with oil lubricated crankcase.
Oil drains out the filler.
Oil and gas do not mix on this four stroke.
The PDF below is the Honda manual.

Changing oil and filter


If you have never changed your oil before use care:

0.) Safely Jack up vechile
1.) remove oil filler cap
2.) remove oil drain plug on oil pan
3.) Let oil drain into a container
4.) Flush a quart of through with the drain plug removed to get any deposits out.
5.) remove and drain oil filter
6.) install new oil filter(make sure you put some oil on the filters gasket by hand)
7.)Install oil drain plug
8.) Re-fill with oil

Hope this helps and again use with care if you have never turned a wrench before, people get hurt easily by being careless while working under a car.
