Too much oil is bad becuase you can acutally cause the pistons to not be lubricated properly, also the pump pressure may become too high. Best thing to do is open the drain plug and let some oil out until you've got the right amount. You can also remove the oil filter and drain from there, whichever is easiest to get to.

Hi please can you help ive recently overhauled the the engine on my 2l opel rekord 1986 model but for some reason it keeps blowing the oil seal on the oil filter on start once then during idling once.


full rebuild with bearings, rings, head ,referb ,new oil pump
or partial rebuild re ring ?

filter issue wont be because of rebuild or higher oil pressure

try filling the filter with some oil before fitting
are you smearing the new oil filter seal with new oil before fitting
and is the surface of the face where the oil filter spins smooth no scratches or gouges or roughness

wierd
if the seal is intact you can use silicon sealant
to get it to seat and not leak

are to putting the filter on too tight or not tight enough?

spin till contact is made to block
and hand tighten only no filter tool
run motor and if leaking tighten one third turn more

if you use the tool and screw it on heavy
will flatten the seal and
you may need to cut the oil filter off next surface

Hi i have an avensis verso d4d 2litre diesel 2003 its lacking bad on power


Mr Allan first thing you must do is to renew the fuel filter,check if there is any other filters and then if you still have any old fuel in tank drain it,fill it up with a clean diesel and my personal advice as an automotive engineer try what I do personally,ask from a petrol station if they sell- " TWO STROKE OIL " yes is the oil use in mixing with petrol for mopped motorcycles. Use 250ml in tank full of diesel ,-full tank to empty -before light comes on and re-use again 250ml for another full tank and continued for four times. It is also good to do this even for two times filling every two months,. Two Stroke Oil has the power to clean and lubricate the feeding system of a diesel engine also treats the fuel injectors even when you might hear them working rough. It is like a cough medicine. Try it and let me know.
