Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

My 2001 sebring, with 2.7 litre, blew out engin oil.

I had started it up, it was approx -17 degrees cent., then when I moved it,
i saw a huge oil puddle on my driveway. I opened the hood and it looked like the oil was leaking on the top of the engine, although I could not tell from where.There was no oil on the underside of my hood but oil had pooled in some areas on top of the engine. I restarted it but I could see no leaks anywhere. I refilled the crankcase and it has not leaked since but I am worried it could do it again and this time, I could damage my engine. Have you come across this situation before? My car has about 140,000 kms. Tks, Martin

    I have since discivered that the oil come shooting out of the dipstick tube. Any idea?

    I have since fixed my problem and no, it was not my oil that was overfull, but it was my pcv valve which was plugged. I replaced it with a new one, 5.99 $ and there you go, good as new.

L have a 2000 vw 4motion need to change automatic gearbox oil how do l put in new oil and how many liters does it take


How to check & change oil in automatic transmission on 2000 VW Passat 4Motion:

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.

tdisline_278.jpg


Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm.


The automatic gearbox oil capacity (drain & refill) is 2,6 ... 3,0 litres.
The front differential oil capacity is 0,75 litres. Oil type: SAE 75 W / 90 Synthetic.
The rear differential oil capacity is 1,5 litres. Oil type: SAE 90.

How do I improve gas milage on my 2006 3.3 Dodge


Not much to be done, however there is always this:

Proper tune-up
proper tires, alignment
Proper tire inflation (this is huge)
clean air filter, perhaps an air filter that is less restrictive
proper motor oil
Be certain the engine is at proper temp, not running too cool.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

My 1997 Hyundai excel has 144000km. I just put in 2 litres of oil 2 weeks ago as the oil light flashed on. Yesterday the oil light flashed on again so i have again put another 2 litres in. i do approx...


if there no leaks , now those older excels had problems with the rear main seals leaking with high milage, but you will see it under the car. also bad valve seals will cause a large oil consumption issue,but often you will see blue/ white smoke out the tailpipe esp on start up.

Hi! What I've done in the past is purchase two 5 litre containers of the correct grade oil then carefully topped up until just showng below Max level on dipstick I run the car briefly to check for leaks and to fill up new oil filter I let it settle on level ground with engine switched off then top up slowly to correct level, Oh I think you'll find 6 litres is the Norm!

Engine knocking and oil lampe illuminated during idle


Change oil and filter. Use a synthetic blend oil, add 1/2 pint of marvel mystery oil, and drive for a short time, 30 minutes or so. If knock continues, the damage is already happened. Use only synthetic blend or synthetic oil in the 2.7 litre engine.
