Tip & How-To about Chrysler Town & Country

Stop spilling oil when adding.

One of the best things I've found for adding oil to my vehicles, is an empty Ketchup bottle. (squeeze type) I simply pour oil from larger jugs into the Ketchup bottles for clean and easy adding of oil to my vehicles. Saves me looking for a funnel every time, and the clear bottle allows me to see how much I've added. The bottles are usually in 1 quart, or 1 liter sizes, so that makes measuring the amount easier too. Simply write on the bottle, what grade or type of oil is in it, and it's an easy way to keep them organized as well. Want to add just a little, squeeze a little, add a lot, keep squeezing.
No more pouring it all over engine, trying to hit that hole. They last for ever, and your doing your part to recycle as well. Handy when adding oil to any vehicles, lawnmowers etc, or even when you just need a drop on a squeaky door hinge.

The antifreeze tank is completely empty what kind of antifreeze should I use and how much do I use


If the reservoir is empty, you may want to start out by draining your radiator completely and starting over. there is a petcock valve at the bottom of the radiator. EPA Says you can't drain it onto the ground, but that's your decision. Anyway.....Buy full strength antifreeze. Take a empty gallon jug (could be a gallon milk jug so you can see more easily) and mix one half antifreeze to one half water.Take the cap off the radiator and add it it there.When it is full, put the cap back on the radiator and crank your vehicle to circulate it.Then start adding the antifreeze/ water mixture to the reservoir.As it goes down keep adding until it levels out at the normally hot line on the reservoir. As for the type of antifreeze........it's basically all the same which is Propylene glycol. CAUTION ! DON"T REMOVE THE RADIATOR CAP AFTER THE ENGINE HAS WARMED UP ! Hope this helps.

how many bottle of oil is 4/5 quarts


Most bottles of oil show the amount of oil inside.. Usually oil comes in quart jugs but the larger jugs of oil are usually one gallon (4quarts) but I have seen jugs of oil holding five quarts .if they are quart containers 4/5 means 4 or five quarts. if doing an oil change they are talking 5 quarts when replacing the filter and 4 quarts if you are not replaceing the oil filter if this was helpful please leave good feedback
