Hi .

What oil did you use as the wrong oil used and over fill will do this ,

This is the oil needed and amount .




The YD 25 use castrol Edge 5W-40 and use no more than 6.4 litre with oil filter change
and 6.4litre with out filter change .

If you have Overfilled then drain off the amount of oil needed to get it to the right level .

Too much oil in an engine is just about as bad as to little .

Please take care when draining off oil, as it may be very hot and will burn and scald your hands .

If you need further assistance then please get back to me .

Please rate my help a 3 to 5. " If you are not satisfied please don't rate."
We can continue to work or I can opt out .
For further assistance there is no extra charge after accepting .
If I don't reply soon I will as quick as I can as we may be on different time zones



Kindest regards Greg
