Hey guys I did my first oil change since new. 19 yxz drained 3.75 qt manual says 2.75 put that back in . Would could not see on dip stick after running 10 to 15 min rechecking. Added one more qt now correct on dip stick.? Also is there a way to prime oil in engine before start up.

Fill it and screw it on. It’s kinda at an angle so spills some. Does the trick though

On I'm trans oil change in my manual it shows dip stick with threads? There is a bolt that prevents dip/filler stick. From falling out witch means no threads? Is this correct so no dip stick on top of trans? With bolt tight you can still turn dip stick

That is the trans screen, not the dipstick. You must remove passenger side tunnel cover to access the trans dipstick.

Yes. It is very informative to see what is happening inside the tranny. I inspect and clean with every oil change. It is normal for the screen to turn with the bolt in place.

Thank you the screen had very little metal chips in it. Trans oil was toast I also did copy post here. About cutting open hole to CK trans oil. Made a aluminum cover screwed over hole.

Sounds normal . I have often thought to just cut the hole too, but I just haven't because I really don't directly check trans oil regularly. I check seals visually before rides and look for any evidence of dripping trans fluid on the top of the skid plates. Besides minor seepage at rear output shaft seal, I have observed NO leakage on transmissions on either machine.

Since we put lots of miles on our off road toys. I want to try to make it more easy to change trans oil. Good idea to change it with engine oil change
