I Have a 09 rhino and got water in engine through air box. I changed oil 5 times oil is fine but my air intke line had some oil in it when i drained the lines. Why is it oil and not water? What should i do?
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:
Not a pro with rhinos but sounds like you got oil from crank case. like if you have a seal broken, hope not but my car had same problem and I had a cracked gasket. good luck. you can check the oil to see if it looks milky

When you`re dealing with a turbocharged or supercharged engine, a small amount of oil in the air intake is usually considered normal. But an excessive accumulation of oil indicates a problem, such as faulty turbocharger/supercharger seals or an obstructed turbocharger return line.
The oil you are seeing is due to excessive crank case pressure which is caused by worn piston rings and cylinder walls. This excess pressure inside the crank case forces engine oil by the pistons as well as out through the breather and into the intake – then it enters the turbo as a very fine mist.
When oil cannot pass freely through the passage, it gathers inside the top of the cylinder head. When the passage is totally blocked, the oil will go through the PCV valve and enter the air intake manifold.
Specifically, if the PCV valve malfunctions, or is stuck open, it allows some of the oil that is used to lubricate the pistons and cylinders to escape. This wayward oil can then find its way to the surface of the engine`s spark plugs, resulting in a condition known as “oil fouling.”
Extreme pressure, strain, or overheating can crack an intake manifold. This allows air to leak into the engine without passing through the throttle body. When air doesn`t pass through the throttle body or mass air flow sensor and goes straight into the engine, there`s more air and less fuel to burn.
Leaky O-rings (spark plug tube seals) are probably the number one cause of oil on spark plugs. Spark plug tube seals keep engine oil, coolant, and everything else on one side of your spark plugs, so they remain dry. If these rings fail, engine oil can leak into your spark plug well and onto your spark plugs.
If the turbocharger is losing engine oil via the intake or exhaust gas port, this usually means the pressure equilibrium is impaired due to problems with the oil/gas return line. Reasons for oil leakage: Blocked, kinked, constricted or carbonised return line.
Having oil in the intake system is normal but could be a breather problem like a faulty pcv valve.
What does cause this is a worn turbo (bearings and oil seals) or the PCV system. There is a shaft with a couple bearings in the turbo which are lubricated by engine oil. When the bearings wear or the oil seals wear, oil can make its way into the pressurized side of the turbo and be pushed into the intercooler.
Unless you repair the PCV system, this excessive pressure will continue causing leaks. The bottom line is this: Your service sales staff should understand that a neglected PCV system may cause oil leaks. It also can adversely affect engine performance and gas mileage, but that`s another topic.
The oil may leak from the valve itself or from one of the seals. Additionally, the engine may run rough or misfire. You may also notice a decrease in fuel efficiency. If the problem is left unaddressed, it could eventually lead to engine damage.
PCV Valve Replacement

If the valve doesn`t open and close on schedule, or if any part of the system clogs, the result can be a rough idle, sluggish acceleration or increased oil consumption.

If the intake manifold gaskets leak coolant into the intake manifold the engine may overheat as a result, without any visible external leaks. Any coolant leaks should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent the possibility of serious engine damage occurring due to a bad intake manifold gasket.
While it is possible to drive in this manner, it is not recommended. If you drive with a vacuum leak for a long time, the increased temperatures in your engine will begin to cause major damage. The low-fuel mixture will burn fast. This would be more than your engine cooling system can manage.
In an extreme case, the air filter will be so damaged that it will fail to prevent particles from entering the combustion chamber. Such particles are abrasive to the pistons, piston rings and cylinder walls, and will gradually increase engine wear and oil consumption, and also contaminate the oil.
Specifically, if the PCV valve malfunctions, or is stuck open, it allows some of the oil that is used to lubricate the pistons and cylinders to escape. This wayward oil can then find its way to the surface of the engine`s spark plugs, resulting in a condition known as “oil fouling.”
If the engine is running rough or your check engine light illuminates, the cause may be excess oil contacting the spark plugs and causing a misfire.
When they blow, intake manifold gaskets and head gaskets will typically leak different substances. A blown intake manifold gasket may cause air or fuel to leak. A blown head gasket, on the other hand, will typically cause combustion gases, coolant or oil to leak.
#2 – Worn-Out Valve Seal

If the seal is worn out, the oil will make its way into the intake manifold. Oil will then be burned and will increase your consumption.

Oil leaks can cause catastrophic damage to the bearing systems and occur within seconds of the turbocharger commencing operation. When a turbocharger is installed correctly, it should NOT leak oil, however, there can be cases where oil leaks occur.
Boosted Crankcase Pressure

When an engine is turbocharged, the intake manifold is under pressure during most running conditions. The gas and oil bypassing the rings are still present. And, the pressure generated by the turbocharger can increase crankcase pressures.

What does cause this is a worn turbo (bearings and oil seals) or the PCV system. There is a shaft with a couple bearings in the turbo which are lubricated by engine oil. When the bearings wear or the oil seals wear, oil can make its way into the pressurized side of the turbo and be pushed into the intercooler.
miles okay so yes uh oil on in boost pipes is pretty normal um a lot of times it comes from crank ventilation stuff that recirculates. will also recirculate oil back in but but in general all turbos will have oil in the boost.
The turbo oil drain is a pipe that connects your turbo chargers oil gallery to the engine, this drains the oil away from the bearings inside the turbo charger. The pipe is connected typically to the sump or the lower portion of the engine block.

Need a Popeil Pocket fisherman manual
ANSWER : For the original pocket fisherman. I believe the design has not changed. Once you do it the first time it is actually quite easy.Two things to note. Read this whole thing first.1) the location of the bail spring (Keeps the metal bail cover up so line does not get stuck when casting.Note: This is important cause the metal bail cover must rise enough so that the line casts smoothly. (A complaint about this product. But when calibrated correctly it is quite good for what it is)2) The little **** that the crank gear plastic housing will fit into (Must be on top when you put the whole bail back in. The crank shaft lip fits into that ****.You’ll get it when you see it.Remove the panel screws (2) as you did. Pop out the crank shaft (copper). **** is in top when replacing. (remember that). Remove the bail. On the top of the bail there is a screw. ( becareful and remember how the little metal bail spring in situated here. Turn upside down with metal bail cover in your palm as it conects to the bail spring). Pull off metal bail cover. The plastic line holder actually comes apart and holds a lot more line than you think. Replace line. Feed the line back up the rod. Assemble the opposite.

Does the John Deere series 100 lawn tractor have some sort of safety feature that shuts the engine off if it gets dangerously low on oil? I was cutting grass this morning and the engine sputtered and quit. I got off the tractor and noticed that the oil drain line plug was open and dripping oil. Have I ruined my engine or can I refill it with oil and continue on?
ANSWER : Not sure on this specific mower, but oil is usually there to lubricate and keep the temp down. When theres none in it, it gets hot and melts the pistons. Sounds bad to me

LX 188. Engine suddenly dies. The fluel in the bowel of the fuel filter is empty. If I crank the engine the filter becomes dry and is collapsing some but the engine does not start. When I remove the supply line from the fuel pump to the carberator and crank the enginge there is a strong stream of gas being pumped out. I tap on the carberator ??? is the float is hung not allowing fuel to enter. Cranking the engine with the line off refills the bowel of the gas filter. Reattache line to the carberator===engine starts. Ran perfect for 20minutes then suddenly died. Repeated all the above and engine again started. What to do to fix this? Thanks
ANSWER : Debrie inside the needle and seat area which has to be cleaned out with carburetor cleaner and compressed air

Help! Just bought a Remington 30 06 for my grandson that has a Bushnell Sportview U4124 4-12power scope mounted on it. I would like to sight it in at 100 yards using a 180 grain shell but I don’t have the owners manual and I don’t understand an on line explanation that I found. This is the on line message: “You’ll see two horizontal crosshairs, put the top one on the animals back then zoom in until the bottom one is on his stomach. Look at the numbers on the zoom dial there should be three lines they are D – deer, E – elk and A – antelope. The numbers are the distance to the game, you then turn the external elevation knob or turret to the matching distance and shoot dead on. No need to hold over for bullet drop. The sad part will be if you didn’t get the other turrets that would have come with it as they are calibrated to different calibers and bullet weights”
I don’t understand how to set the elevation knob to 100yards when its lowest shown number is 150. If I need other turrets how or where can I get them? Thanks, a frustrated grandfather.

My polaris (Sportsman 700 2002) consumes about 1 litre of oil for every 200 miles. I replace the oil dipstick tube going into the engine,, because ther was a crack at the base, but it wasn’t the only problem obviously. The thing is, that normally when an engine burns oil, you can see smoke in the eshast fumes, but there doen’t seem to be any smoke. everything else goes fine. What’s the next step, because I live in Kuujjuaq situated in the Nunavik(Tip of norhern Québec) and ther are no qualified mehanics in this town, so I need some to guide me to the next step…
ANSWER : I had that problem some time ago and could not find any leak or there was no smoke. What we found was when I put the car up on the hoist there was a leak under neath the engine. Not enough to run out but when the car was driven it would throw the oil out underneath the car. I forget what one but I think the oil drain gasket was leaking. just enough leak to make the oil disappear. Put it on the hoist and see if your engine area is wet with oil.and pin point the area.
Hope this helps
