Diesel too help flush milky oil ?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Crf450 and got water in my transmission side, due too thinking I was in a boat.... Was wondering if diesel or kerosene would help get the milky oil out thanks

Dude I'd just fill it up and run it for a few then drain to again. I really wouldn't recommend putting fuel all over your clutch plates or seals

Drain it and fill it with ATF and run it for an hour and then drain it again. ATF is fine for the tranny and it will make it sparkle again. Pro Honda HP tranny fluid will do the same thing but costs a little more.

 

DO NOT use anything fuel/solvent based. EVER!! only oils rated for the tranny

Drowned one (bent rod, cocked piston) and knew I wouldn't get to it for a few months. Drained water and filled full both sides with tcw3 outboard motor oil for storage.   Kind stunk when I tore it down but there was no rust.   

 

Another time I did use diesel, but just for a couple quick flushes, didn't start the motor.

 

pushin it out
