I changed the oil and filter and was wondering where exactly are the marks to tell if it's full. The rod is about 6 inches long and just below the plastic screw cap is a flat spot on the rod about 1 inch long. Is the happy medium between the round rod or the 1 inch flat spot toward the top of the rod? This is an 07 Rubi. Thanks...
As I stated before the procedure to check the engine oil is in the owners manual. I do not have mine with me now but it goes something like this. Start the engine and let it idle 5 minutes. Do not rev the engine. Let it set for 5 minutes then check the oil. It should be in between the ends of the flat area at the top at this time. This is a dry sump system and has to fill the tank or something like that.
Hey guys qiuck question i did my oil change today and missed the washer that goes on top of the spring against the oil filter , its against the rubber right now do you guys think its ok or drain the new oil just for that washer ???
When I bought my Rancher used several years ago it was just serviced by a honda dealer. When I changed the oil the next time I found the washer was missing. It did not cause any problems. The filter was not torn up at all where the spring was on it. I did not want to wait to order a new one so i made one out of a large thin flat washer. I would not worry about it till next oil change.
