How to change a cars oil.

Changing the oil yourself.

Changing the oil in a personal vehicle is fairly straight forward and easy. The first thing you need to do is to make the underneath of your vehicle accessible. You can do this a few different ways. You can use drive up ramps, a floor jack and jack stands or if you’re lucky enough to have access you can put your vehicle on a lift. No matter what your decision is you must take proper safety measures to keep your vehicle from moving while you are underneath. Always use jack stands and your emergency brake with tire wedges if you are not using a full lift.

Next you need to locate your oil drain plug, which is on the bottom of the oil pan. Remove it and drain the oil into some type of drain pan or bucket. After replacing the oil pan plug locate your oil filter and remove it. Replace the filter and lower your vehicle. Now, remove the oil cap that is at the top of the motor and fill the motor to the recommended level. Start the car after making sure there are not any leaks. After letting the vehicle run for a few moments, shut it off and check the oil level. If everything is OK, then you are done and have just saved your self a few bucks.
An oil change can make a dramatic impact on how your can runs and feels. The difference of a motor with fresh oil and one with old oil is huge. You could compare oil changes to dialysis; oil is your motors blood. When your oil is old and dirty your motor will feel sluggish, like a dialysis patient before their session and it will have to work harder for the results that would have been easy with clean oil. Motor oil affects almost every moving part in a motor. With clean oil everything will run smooth in unison affecting gas mileage and the life of the motor. Most manufactures recommend changing your oil every three thousand miles or if you don’t dive that much every three months, there are manufactures that recommend every five thousand miles but a higher grade and more expensive oil needs to be used.

When I make a turn going 30-35 mph and the weight of the vehicle is at maximum force, I hear a clunk from underneath the vehicle. What could be producing this sound?

Try changing the gear oil in the rear axle. Be sure to add a Slip Differential Additive paste to it (Autozone sells the paste and the gear oil).
The noise is coming from the differential in the rear axle and you will hear it when the vehicle changes from one direction to the other. Drive a hard zigzag line in a vacated parking lot and you should hear it at each shift in direction.

Change the front axle gear oil also if it had never been down. Usual interval for both is 30,000 miles.

Were are the nuts or nut to change the oil on the sump on a hyundai 97 sports wagon

Locate the oil pan on the bottom of the engine. You will need to raise the vehicle in order to crawl underneath it. Be sure to use jack stands to hold the vehicle up. The drain plug will be on the bottom of the oil pan near the rear of the pan. Do not confuse the oil pan with the transmission. I don't think the transmission pan has a drain plug, but I could be mistaken. Some vehicles do have drain plugs on the transmission sump.

Oil change

First, you will need to get underneath the truck and locate the oil pan. Turn and remove the bolt on the oil pan to release the oil (use a container to catch the old oil) Now, climb underneath the driver's side of the vehicle, beneath the engine, and locate the oil filter. The filter is a cylinder approximately six inches in length which extends from the side of the engine. Remove the oil filter and then replace it with a brand new one. After all of the oil has drained out, tighten the bolt and the locate the oil cap and remove it. Now add five quarts of oil into the engine

Yes....Check oil level. Listen for tapping noises from engine....Change oil, have someone put a pressure gauge on engine (a real mechanical one) If pressure is OK, change oil pressure sending unit. If pressure is low, you have a real problem (internal wear) If so, consider a rebuild or replace vehicle.
