Iv put half a litre if sewing oil in my industrial overlocker and still nothing showing in oil level window. Dnt want to overfill but shld i put more . where has the oil that I put in gone???


I suspect that you will not see an oil level in the sight glass because it is overfull. Find the drain plug and empty out the oil and restart the filling process

I do not have a manuel could someone tell me how much oil is required when changing a 2.2 engine.


Generally in the 5 to 6 litre (quarts) range. Put in 4 litres and check on dip stick. Add remainder half a litre at a time checking the dip each time. The volume of oil required to be added to go from "MIN" mark on the dip stick to "MAX" is just half a litre.

Oil leak from the bottom of the engine compartment


oil pan seal could be bad, or oil drain plug is loose or that seal could be bad as well, both are an easy fix and very cheap

Transmission problems


Go straight to your local transmission repair centre, they will be able to diagnose the fault and repair it for you. Also check your transmission oil, Engine running at normal working temp, in park (P) remove dipstick, on your left at the back towards the bulkhead. check level if low top up only half a litre at a time. if low put in half a litre of the correct fluid(available at your jeep dealer) put foot on the brake and put into reverse (R) then put into drive (D) put back into P and recheck if still low add another half litre and repeat process. When level is correct test drive, if all is ok, take to transmission shop to find the leak. repair and all will be well. Hope this helps.

Ive put petrol in the oil tank


Just drain the oil, refill, and I think I'd run it to warm it up fully AFTER draining and refiling, and drain and refill again. You shouldn't drive it w/ gasoline in the oil, as it will thin out the oil and it won't lubricate as it should, and the extra half litre would be overfilled a bit, which would cause the oil to foam, which also would affect lubrication. countrycurt0

Oil and oil filter


Um, need a 17 mm wrench or socket to remove the drain plug under the motor and the oil filter is behind the motor almost center, but get to it from the front or maybe driver side of the car. When u remove the oil filter, make sure the old o ring was remaoved as well, can easily tell if it is by looking at the old filter, it should still be on it.

Put some old oil on the new filter o ring to make sure it doesn't kink when u install it. To tighten the filter, screw it by hand until it' s snug, then give about half a turn more.

Engine should need about 3.7 litres or less to be full. So put 3 litres in it, start car for about 10 seconds and turn it off. Verify oil level and top up as necessary.

Good luck
