How can I change the car oil


Basic procedure for almost all vehicles:
Warm engine to operating temperature. (Hot oil drains more quickly and more completely) Raise vehicle enough to crawl under it on your back (secure with wood blocks or jack stand so it doesn't slip off jack) set parking brake to avoid roll. Get a suitable container for used oil, (at least 5QT capacity) Locate oil pan, will have a plug with a bolt head on it on bottom corner of pan. (usually middle bottom of the engine in location) Loosen and remove oil plug being careful not to get hot oil on your hand. (gloves recommended) Locate oil filter on either underside or toward the side of engine. Remove oil filter with oil filter wrench. (they are usually on too tight to remove by hand) Allow to drain thoroughly for about 10 minutes. Coat new oil filter gasket with fresh motor oil. Screw oil filter on until contact with housing , then an additional 1/4 turn. Replace oil plug. Tighten to 45 ft lbs, or pretty tight, do not over tighten. Lower vehicle. (On level ground) Fill engine with correct weight oil (probably 10W-30W for yours) 4 QTS. Remove oil check dipstick and wipe. Start motor, allow to run for 30 seconds to fill up oil filter and circulate well. Shut off engine, wait 1 minute for oil to drain back into the oil pan, then check oil level with dipstick. Add more as needed to reach full mark on dipstick. (4.5 QTS for V6, 5 QTS for V8 usually) DO NOT OVERFILL! Start motor, check for leaks under vehicle. If ok, you are done. I use the 5QT containers of oil (cheaper too) and then put used oil back into empty container and take to a recycling station for disposal.

I just bought 1998 Ford Escort SE and can't find the oil dipstick. Exactly where is it, and is there perhaps a picture or schematic of one so I know where I may have to install one? Thanks much.


The engine oil dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine. Remove it and wipe the oil off the dipstick and then thread it back into the tube. Remove the dipstick and read the level. It should be between the MAX and MIN lines. Add oil if necessary. The coolant level is checked by visually inspecting the level in the reservoir while the engine is cold. It should be around the "Full Cold" line. Take a look at the coolant because oil mixed in with the antifreeze could signify a leaking head gasket. The brake master cylinder will be located on the driver's side of the firewall behind the strut tower. Pull the lid off and check the fluid level inside. To check the automatic transmission fluid level, first allow the engine to warm up to normal operating temperature, then check the fluid level on the dipstick. ------------

Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How many quarts of oil do i put in a 2000 ford focus


Depending on what engine this is, you should drain oil, change filter, add 3.75 qts of oil, then start engine to check for leaks. Turn engine off, then check the oil fill on the dipstick. Add to proper amount generally at 4 or 4.25 qts.

Let me know if this helps,

Where do is the tranny fluid filler on my '99 Legacy Outback? Please don't tell me I have to pour 9.8 qts down the dipstick tube!


yes you do but if you only removed filter and fluid in the pan it should only be around 5 quarts. also make sure you use the right dipstick located on right side of the engine because there is one on the left side for the transfer case which takes gear lube. might want to purchase a transmission funnel makes it easier.

2007 honda odyssey oil change and transmission fluid recommended change frequency


Have supplies ready(long stem funnel to reachfill hole, 4 qts honda genuine atf-z1, rags for drips)
1. First, park the car while its hot on a flat surface and turn the engine off. Locate the yellow transmission dipstick and remove it and wipe it clean.
2. Look for the the ATF fill plug and washer(below and to the left of the brake fluid reservoir) 17mm marked "ATF" and remove it.
3. Locate the drain plug(not the one on pointing towards the drivers front tire but its located on on the drivers side of the transmission pointing towards the passengers side and lying horizontally) and remove it along with the washer. Its blue and is a standard 3/8 square drive plug and remove it. Drain completely. (wait 15 min or so until ALL is gone and replace the plug after throughly cleaning the magnet that is attached to it).
5. Replace atf fluid(honda says 3.3 qts- but mine took 3.8 to bring to first hole in dipstick level-check while running(use honda z-1 fluid only-yes- its expensive).
6. Replace fill bolt and washer and tighten.
7. Replace dipstick, let engine get hot and recheck. Recheck again after driving a day or so.
Your done-good work, you saved a $100 dollars...

It can be changed for every 60000 miles..
