Hi, Robshogs and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan empty.
2. Oil pump not functioning.
3. Restricted/pinched oil lines or fittings.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump/crankcase junction (also results in poor engine performance).

SOURCE: I?m buying a 2000 Suzuki GSX 750 that was laid down

HI, I had a 2002 gsx600f, pretty much the same bike and I let a buddy of mine ride it and he came back with the oil pan cracked, turned out he tryed to ride a few wheelies on it and upon one of the landings the weight of the bike actually cracked the oil pan, they are extremly heavy compared to other sport bikes on the market. Ive never heard of an oil pan just cracking, more then likely it was user error.

SOURCE: I have a suzuki drz 125l 2004 model that currently

okay theres a couple possable things that can cause this .... carbon on the valves, ran hard,not frequent oil changes, low on oil, cheap oil, spark plugg is too long , too much oil somtimes causes this,crank case breather plugged,it all depends on the way it was treated in the past or the present
i change my oil about every 15-20 hours keeps debre down and less friction on engine,remember this is not water cooled! so use the best 10-40 oil or atleast good known oil and run some seafoam through the gas,it will take that carbon off . and if you dont have a inline fuel filter u should get one they really save carbs and there only $3.00 at oreily! hope this helps <walker>

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
< < READ CLOSELY > >
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two adjusters down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each adjuster one and one half turns outward. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Wood splitter is pushing hydrolic fluid out fill tube on the return stroke


make sure that the ram is in the fully retracted position
empty oil reservoir until the oil level is at the required position normally about 1/4 inch below filler plug
if oil is added with the ram at any extension then the extra oil will be pushed back into the reservoir and over flow out

I have a Poulan 625 push mower. What type of oil should I use in it? I can't find my manual.


If it has a 4 stroke engine, as most lawnmowers do, then you just car engine oil. Very occasionally you come across 2 stroke mowers.

The way to know if it's a 4 stroke or 2 stroke engine is, if it has an oil tank it's a 4 stroke engine. If there's only the one tank, i.e. you mix the oil with the petrol then it's a 2 stroke engine.

If it's a 2 stroke engine you mix petrol and 2 stroke oil at a ratio of 40:1

I have spark and getting fuel won't start


if its a 2 stroke then you need fuel spark and air to get the bike to start have you got compression? check it by removing the spark plug and put your finger over the hole air try and start the bike your finger should be pulled into the hole if not then a piston ring is either cracked or broken

open the air box and check the filter then clean the carb thats all you need for a 2 stroke

if its a 4 stroke then again check the air filter and compression remember that a 4 stroke doesnt have the oil with the fuel it goes in a separate chamber

hope this helps

Oil change, amount, type oil


NEVER SEEN A CHAINSAW THAT USES OIL IN THE CRANKCASE.
CHECK MANUFACTURER TO FIND OUT IF IT'S A 2-STROKE ( ALSO NEVER
SEEN A 4-STROKE CHAINSAW )

ALL 2-STROKES NEED IS OIL IN THE GAS ( USUALLY 50:1 RATIO ). HOME
IMPROVEMENT STORES SELL THE OIL IN CONTAINERS THAT MIX WITH
ONE GALLON OF GAS.

USE BAR AND CHAIN OIL. THERE SHOULD BE A RESERVOIR FOR IT.
IT KEEPS THE CHAIN FROM OVERHEATING.

I have a 1984 suzuki rm 125 it has always ran good for me. until recently it just putts and runs for maybe 20 secounds and then stalls. i tried to run start it and it kinda fired up but there was way more...


Are you mixing regular motor oil in the fuel? Doesn't this bike have a reservoir for 2-stroke oil? You must use 2-stroke oil in that reservoir. Buy it online if you can't find it locally.

Engine dies


Since this is a 2 stroke engine, fuel and air are critical. The "leaking oil" is probably coming from a loose or cracked fuel line since there is no "oil pan" because 2 strokes use the oil in the mix for lubrication. Unless the oil you see is leaking from the chain lube reservoir. Most likely you have an issue with the fuel line. Allowing it to start but when you try to rev it it is sucking in air causing it to lean out and die. If that is intact, I would take the carb apart and make sure it is not gummed up from storage. Hope that helps
