Oil filter was put in backwards.. therefore starving the motor of oil.. and prob burnt the rings? and maybe did some damage on the top end?
I haven't changed the oil & filter in my bike yet but was wondering is it that easy to put the filter in backwards? What should I watch for?
The filter is stamped with "inside" or "torwards engine" I can not recall for sure exactly what it says.I haven't changed the oil & filter in my bike yet but was wondering is it that easy to put the filter in backwards? What should I watch for?
No the warranty didn't cover it...Belive me I was pissedSo the warrenty didn't cover it? I know my motor doesn't have water in it. And if for some reason they say it does I am going to be pissed.
I had every right to be pissed at honda because I had never even changed the oil in it so how could i've put the filter in backwards. This all happend within a month of the purchase of the 4 wheeler. But who cares its over with. Worrying is just like rocking it gives you something to do but gets you no wherePissed at who?????????????.................sorry man but you put the oil filter in backwards. Bet you don't make that mistake again!!
Better luck next time, but it isn't Honda's fault. We need to take responsibility for our actions. I don't want to lecture but it makes me upset that you knew it was your fault and still tried to screw your dealer.
I'll stop now, sorry about your luck and I hope everything works out for ya!!
You're a LiarWhen I was riding this afternoon I noticed it losing power. I stopped and checked the oil. It was perfect. So I keep riding, then I noticed it was smoking white smoke every now and then. So I stopped and checked the oil again..................... We changed the oil and oil filter yesterday but I have rode 10 miles since then so I need some input.
They also told me water got in the engine through the out put shaft seal which was leaking. So take it for what it is worth but they are trying to screw you like they screwed me. Sorry for the long post
