If it is just a weep don't worry about it. No factory issues that I can find, try a Mazda only forum.

How do i change my oil in the jetta 2004 2.0?


Add an engine cleaning treatment to the oil fill plug,run the car for 10 mins to slightly heat the oil, raise the front of the car, put it on axle stands, get under the car & locate the oil sump drain plug, place a suitable container under the sump to catch the oil, remove the drain plug, let ALL of the oil run out of the sump until just drips are coming out very slowly, like 1 per 2 or 3 seconds, replace the sump drain plug & new copper washer if required, next remove the oil filter, if it is too hard to turn with a suitable wrench then jus stab it with a screwdriver & use this as leverage, replace with a new oil filter, add about a quarter of the filters volume to the new filter before fitting it & also rub some oil around the O ring seal, tighten the new oil filter by hand, until its just tight enough to complete a seal around its housing, jack up the vehicle, remove the axle stands, lower the vehicle, & fill up with your chosen oil, job done, have a beer & congratulate yourself on a job well done that has saved you a pretty penny .

I HAVE AN OIL LEAK FROM MY PUNTO, THE OIL SEEMS TO BE COMING FROM AROUND THE OIL FILTER, IT IS RUNNING OUT, IS IT LIKELY TO BE THE SUMP OR ARE THERE PROBLEMS WITH THE FILTER OR FILTER HOUSING


Hi,
To make sure that oil leaks are coming from the oil filter, clean the side of your engine, remove all the oil sludge and sump. Then run your engine for an hour, check the oil around the oil filter and the whole side of the engine.
If the oil was found around the filter, it means you have to replace the filter immediately. The oil seal on the oil filter is already done!
Hope that helps you!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Need step by step guide on how to service a toyota yaris


Firstly look at the part numbers of the items you want to replace, oil filter, spark plugs, if you want to put new ones in, air filter and if the car has quite a high mileage, the fuel filter. The fuel filter is under the car and looks like an alumimium cylinder. If you go to a quality spares shop they can sell you reputable parts, often for a lot less than Toyota original parts. Ask them to set the gaps on the plugs and buy a gallon of the type of oil that is specified in your handbook for your type of climate. You will also need a sump plug washer.

The first thing to do would be to remove the air filter from the cleaner. This is usually held together with clips and/or screws. Clean out the inside of the housing and place the new filter in the same position as the old one. Clip and screw everything back together and that job is done.

Blow around the spark plug holes, number each spark plug lead from 1 (front of engine) to 4 (back of engine). Remove the plug leads and the unscrew the plugs. Replace with the new plugs being careful not to overtighten them and replace the plug leads onto the correct plugs.
Check your engine coolant level and top up if necessary.
Start the car and get it to normal temperature. Switch off engine. Chock the wheels, put the car in park or gear and handbrake on. Jack up the drivers side giving you enough space to slide a bucket under the engine. DO NOT GET UNDER THE CAR. Wipe around the sump plug and SLOWLY undo it. The plug is at the bottom of the sump at the lowest part of the engine. THE OIL ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLUG IS HOT SO TAKE CARE. Let the oil drain. Whilst this is happening, wipe around the filter base and unscrew the filter. This will also be hot and oil will spill so make sure that the bucket can also catch the spillage. Wipe away any excess oil and make sure that the rubber seal has not been left on the engine. It is important to remove it. Place a smear of new engine oil on the new filter rubber seal and screw the filter in place. A good hand tightening is enough. By now all the oil will be out of the engine and you can replace the sump plug washer and screw the sump plug back into the sump making sure it is tight. Wipe away any loose oil. Remove the oil filler cap and pour about half the oil into the engine. let it settle for a minute and remove the dip stick, clean it off, and dip it again. You should see the oil level near the bottom of the dip stick. Add another pint and check again. Keep going until you reach the full mark. Replace the oil cap and dip stick and start the engine. Run it for a few minutes and check the filter and sump plug to make sure they are not leaking. Switch off, let the oil settle and check the level again. It will go down because the filter is now full. Top up and you are done. Look around the engine bay to make sure nothing is amiss. If the car has done about 20 000 remove the wheels and check the brakes have enough lining. Check the tyres for tread, cuts and so on. Make sure all your lights are working. Now you are pretty much good to go.

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

1994 camry oil leak


Hi Toyota Ed
The silver plate seems to be a blank as there are no oil pipes running into.
The leak seems to be weeping along a secondary sump if that makes sense.
If looking from the bottom you have a black sump that bolts onto a silver alloy cast that then seems to be bolted to the lower engine block this seems to have a flexi seal of sealant ( can feel it where it has seeped out) this is were i think the leak is comming from.
Especially when you stop the motor you can see it seeping out around here, but as you know oil sometimes can travel in weird ways and i will check again around the blank plate that you mentioned.
Would i be able to repair it if it is the main sump/ gasket and do you have to remove the motor?

Oil leak


hi common fault on these is the oil switch oil runs down the block around the oil filter and down the sump as you are driving along the air draft blows it all over the place so clean it up run the engine and from underneath the car see where it is coming from the only other things on the sump that would leak are the sump plug washer and the crankshaft main oil seal at the rear of the engine it will be the switch best of luck paul
