SOURCE: oil blows out of tube

You either have a head gasket going bad or your piston rings are shot which causes air to go down into the crankcase building up pressure which exits through the breather tube.

Hello rfrazierL

>>From your Description it Sounds like the Valves Require Adjusting.
>>The Following is a Basic File I made for Setting the Valve Clearances. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**I Do Not Use the Setting Called for by the OEMs. I have Found that the Following Works Best.
>>Remove the Valve Cover (on the Dead Cylinder for Twin Cylinder Engines).
>>Check the Push Tubes and make Sure they are Not Bent.
>>Set the Cylinder you are Setting the Valves on to Top Dead Center on the Compression Stroke When Setting the Valve Clearance. Now Loosen the Valve Adjuster Lock and Using a Blade Style Feeler Gauge, Set the Intake Valve Clearance to .004in -.006in and the Exhaust to .006in - .008in. Loosen and Tighten the Rocker Arm and the Feeler Gauge is Placed Between the Rocker Arm and the Valve Top where the Rocker Arm Pushes on the Valve.
>>***BE SURE TO TIGHTEN THE ADJUSTER LOCK AFTER YOU HAVE THE PROPER VALVE CLEARANCE***
>>I have had Better Performance Out of the Mowers and Less Burnt Valves Using these Settings. Be Sure the Piston is at TDC on the Compression Stroke.**
>>If you Remove the Valve Cover and then Turn the Engine by Hand, you can Watch the Intake Valve Movement. When the Intake Valve Closes, the Piston will Just Starting the Compression/Power Stroke.
>>On Some Engines you can Us a Straightened Coat Hanger and Feel the Piston.
>>Be Careful and Don't Jam the Wire in the Cylinder. Usually the Piston will Push the Wire Out of the Spark Plug Hole with No Problems.

SOURCE: Kolher 17hp motor blowing oil/gas mix out of breather tube

I had the same problem! I found that the needle valve in the carb was not shutting off the fuel flow when not running. Either replace needle valve or put a shut off valve in the fule line. Should take care of the problem

SOURCE: How do I install the clutch release shaft on a KX 125?

The clutch arm where the cable connects is on the left and it connects to the clutch via a shaft that pushes a rod which then pushes a ball bearing sitting in the holder and then the holder pushes the clutch operating plate to dis-engage the clutch. The only seal is on the clutch arm shaft that goes into the casing. At worst, only the springs on the operating plate would need to be removed then a 1/4" inward push on the rod from the right side would give clearance for the shaft to be inserted.

SOURCE: oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.

You can remove the breather tube from the transfer case (twist and pull) and blow compressed air through it. If it has a blockage that could be the cause of your seal to leak (if it is the one on the transfer case not the pinion). The breather tube plugs into the transfer case on the one end and should be open on the other, it just runs up the transmission it doesn't actually plug into it. You shouldn't have to worry about raising it any farther up unless you plan on having it flooded again(not trying to be funny sorry). Good luck, if you have more questions feel free to ask

My 1969 ts 250 is burning crank case oil. Must be the crankshaft seal is out? Can I replce the seal without spliting the crankcase joint?


If your motorcycle is burning oil this indicates worn top end components. A leaking crank shaft seal would be leaking onto the ground. Yes you can replace the seal without splitting the cases, with the right tools.

depends on what side its coming from if its the left then i would check the output shaft seal out and while near there check the gear selector shaft seal both are cheap and easy to replace and just check the other casings to see if the gaskets have started to deteriate causing a leak hope this helps

I have a oil leak ever since i bought this car. I've changed the head gasket, front crank shaft seal, valve cover seal, and oil pan seal. Could using the old head bolts cause this? I've read that it...


NO if you have been using oil and loosing oil from all the seals and rocker cover and sump gasket then its caused by a thing called BACK PRESSURE,and that is caused by the piston rings worn, or broken top compression rings and a lip in the bore causing the ring gap to be about
6thou per inch causing the back pressure which in turn blowes oil out of all seals and gaskets ..
So take out the breather pipe from the rocker cover and let it blow into a paper towel for 2 minutes and if oil fumes come out the rings are worn.
Plus get a compression test on all cylinders and see if there down to 100 PSI or less.
The new head bolts should be replaced as they could be streached
threads, but not your problem this time
Let me know how you get on ASAP Ron

2006 KX250F blowing oil out breather should I be concerned?


hi
ther is a chance that being over filled will blow out of the crank breather so drain off to the correct level if then the bike still does this then you have to high crank presure meaning the bore and piston/rings are badly worn
thanks jay

Oil leaking from under the seat of my Kawasaki klr250


not sure if this will help, but the crank case has a breather tube that is around that area. if the bike is on its side or has been doing wheelies, some oil can get thru the breather hose causing that problem.

Oil leaks from breather box


Hi!
From your brief description It sounds like you are experiencing Crank Case pressure build up.
I presume your ZZR is of High mileage or possibly previous owners havn't serviced it regularly.
The problem being the compression Piston Rings wear and allow Blow Back gasses into the crank case there by building up pressure, this in turn sends an oil film up the breather tube to your air box resulting in your problem.
You could try an oil & filter change (Synthetic) Top jolly with maybe an additive plus similar for the fuel i.e. Red-Ex or similar, it may help but I doubt a cure.
If you want you could extend the breather pipe away from the box into a drip can or similar, be sure to filter it as you don't want to get contamination down in the cases.
Hope this sorts it for you?
Please press the Blue Button for appraisal of my FREE! Effort.
Thank You! & Good Luck.

Loosing oil on the output shaft of the transfer case, I changed the seal two times it's still leaking.


You may have pressure build up in the tranfer case and its going out the weakest spot which is the seals.Who changed the seals?Your transfer case may have a blocked breather if fitted
