Is it possible for me to change the engine oil as im a new timer on these situations thank you.


"anything is possible"



depending on your vehicle's year make model and engine size, the drain plug and oil filter may or may not be hard to get to



today's era of youtube videos and car owners forums makes it easier than before



look it up to see if it's easy to get your oil filter and drain plug for your car/ truck



SAFETY first! use JACK STANDS & don't rely on the jacks by themselves to hold your vehicle up ~ i've known a neighbor and a co-worker who almost got crushed to death



have backup tools to remove your oil filter in case the previous person didn't lube the o-ring and/or over tighten the filter. i have a strap wrench or correct end-cap oil wrench for my vehicles



depending on how the oil filter is mounted, i usually add some oil right into the filter to get it pre-charged while i also lube that rubber seal/o-ring on the filter....



some say to use NEW oil drain plug gaskets before you torque it down (to specs) each plug has a torque spec; but i got away with re-using it a few times before i replace the gasket.



I spin the drain plug on by hand first to avoid cross-threading ~ then use torque wrench. you don't want this plug to loosen while you're driving on the highway or you don't want to overtighten it and have the threads on the oil pan to strip on you...



do not overfill your vehicle's oil capacity ~ the crankshaft will whip it up to foam, causing your engine bearings to starve for oil



so look up the torque spec for your drain plug, and oil capacity

How do I change my oil, where is my oil filter and how do I get to both of these things?


You can almost always find some place like Goodyear, Firestone, Jiffy Lube or Midas advertising an oil change for just slightly more than you can buy the oil and filter. Why would you want to do this yourself? Especially since the first things you need are a jack capable of lifting the front of the car and some jack stands to support it while you are under there. You also need an oil filter wrench and common hand tools. If you don't already have these things, changing your own oil is not the way to save money Then there's the problem of something to catch the oil and where to dispose of it. But if you insist, once you get under there the drain plug will be at the lowest point on the engine. Take a look at the new filter, then look up from the bottom of the engine on either side, you'll see it.

Where can i put jack stands to do an oil change?


There are (2) three and a half inch long jack pads on both sides of your vehicle along the frame rail located exactly twelve inches behind each of your front wheel assemblies. You can place your jack stands safely there. Your oil filter is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, so you'll need to remove the oil filter by accessing it right above the lower control arm using a three-pronged oil filter wrench and a 9" extension with a ratchet.

IMPORTANT! : Always replace the oil drain plug gasket with each lube, oil and filter service. (it looks like a copper or aluminum washer)

P.S. - Don't forget to adjust your tire pressures to 30 p.s.i. in accordance with the tire placard located in the driver side doorjamb.

How do I change the oil on a 2003 excursion 6.0 diesel?


Hello , you will need 14qts of Diesel oil. Either Rotella or and high quality name brand oil ( Ceveron , Castrol ect ). A high quality Motorcraft filter is recommended , but a Fram will suffice as well. Its about $75.00 dollars to do it yourself , and about $100.00 at a Jiffy lube or a place like that. Thank you , Quinn Texada

Tune-up


the phrase tune up is sort of a holdover from a different time, like lube oil and filter. still need to change oil and filter every so often, but as far as the lube goes most newer cars and trucks have sealed bearings that you can't squirt grease into, that was the lube part of lof. what you can do for a tune up on your truck, unless you are having a specific problem, is replace the spark plugs, change the air cleaner and pcv valve, maybe give it a dose of injector cleaner.you can't replace the ignition wires on a coilless ignition system without replacing the coil packs and it's not worth it unless you are having a problem. you should clean the battery terminals every so often and check all the fluids, make sure that your tires are properly inflated, stuff like that. the tires are one area where you can save yourself some money, you will get closer to whatever the rating is for the tire life (50,000 or 75,000 or whatever it was when you bought the tires) and you will save fuel and improve handling all the while.
