A SIMPLE QUESTION
Q:I have one of those Chinese 150cc scooters. I rode it about 40 miles and did the first oil change myself. I put in too much oil, right up to the very top. Now the scooter won't start. Did I screw up the scooter? ELISHA BLOCK CYCLEWORLD.COM
A:It's likely to be hydraulically locked by excess oil. Your best bet is to drain the oil and refill, using the right amount. If you don't have a manual, the oil volume is sometimes shown on the engine casting near the filler.
