By 1997 almost all cars were coming from the factory's without grease fittings, they had lifetime joints (haha). The only place you are likely to find any would be the front suspension, ball joints and tie rod ends. Most aftermarket suppliers still produce these parts with grease fittings so there are likely to be some fittings in the front end. Hope this helps.

Hello
Your Ford Maverick should be a self bleeding system, but if that is not working then leave the red cap off turn your heater on hot & full blow, then just keep top in up the header tank, after sum time you will probley get a the air coiming out of the red/header tanks.

This should help you bleed the the jeep

SOURCE: where the oil pump in a 75 ford maverick is

Removal & Installation

  1. Remove the oil pan.
  2. Remove the oil pump inlet tube and screen assembly.
  3. Remove the oil pump attaching bolts. Lower the oil pump, gasket, and intermediate driveshaft from the crankcase.
  4. To install, prime the oil pump by filling either the inlet or outlet port with engine oil. Rotate the pump shaft to distribute the oil within the pump body.

  1. Position the intermediate driveshaft into the distributor socket. With the shaft firmly seated in the socket, the stop on the shaft should contact the roof of the crankcase. Remove the shaft and position the stop as necessary.
  2. Insert the intermediate driveshaft into the oil pump. Using a new gasket, install the pump and shaft as an assembly. Do not attempt to force the pump into position if it will not seat readily. If necessary, rotate the intermediate driveshaft hex into a new position so that it will mesh with the distributor shaft.
  3. Torque the oil pump attaching bolts to 10–15 ft. lbs. on the 6-cylinder engines, and 22–32 ft. lbs. on the 302 V8.
  4. Clean and install the inlet tube and screen assembly.
  5. Install the oil pan

What is the purpose of this nipple on the pump does it need anything attached to it


A nipple usually is a grease or oil point - you pump grease or oil in with a grease/oil gun.

The other use of a nipple is as a bleed point - think of your brakes. There's a bleed point - nipple - that you open whilst pumping the brakes to remove air from the system.

Does hyundai lantra year 2000 have grease nipples


No I havent seen grease nipples on many newer cars lately. I think the manufacturers have done away with them. Dont try using your grease gun on the brake bleeder valves at any of the wheels. I had one car that the owner tried that on; It was a nightmare.

When replacing a u-joint should the grease fitting face forward or back. I'm working on the drive shaft of a 1974 Ford Maverick.


The grease fitting should face the rear if replacing the trans. u-joint and forward if replacing the diff. u-joint.
