SOURCE: 2001 dodge caravan sport 3.3 need to know what weight oil it take

The correct oil weight is 5W20, but 5W30 can be used also. Be consistant when using oil, try to use the same brand and always use the same viscosity. This vehicle requires 4.5 liters of engine oil.

SOURCE: I would like to know if there is a way to reset

Under the hood, there is a data connector near the strut mount. Open the cover and you'll see a bunch of connectors. In the center, it should look sort of like pac-man. The "mouth" should look like it's going to eat two pins, with your key in the on position, grab a peace of wire or paper clip (use insulated pliers) and ground out the pin furthest away from the pac-man's "mouth". You can ground it to the nut on the strut tower for about 5 seconds, then remove wire and inspect lights, they should be all green

SOURCE: i don't know what weight of oil my car takes. i

You can get a professional consult free from mobile 1 at 1800 033-0863. It appears that 10w-30 and 10w-40 are commonly used in this make but the climate you live in could make a difference as well as your driving style. If the engine runs hot you'll want a heavier weight possibly but if you are in a cold climate that might not be the best thing. I'd call the number.

Where is the drain plug on a 1985 bmw 528e

Coolant drain is typically at the bottom of the radiator, on the engine side. Very few cars don't have one, in those cases, disconnect the bottom hose.

Correct me if I'm wrong but does your car have 2 fuel pumps, one in the tank and one in the line? I might be confusing that with a Volvo. Here's a link to an in line fuel pump for a 528e. Scroll down or search for 528e when you go to the website. THis page also has your charcoal cannister. Hope this helps. Good luck!

My 1985 BMW got locked and it wont stay on

if this is a 1985 model car,then its pretty old...

i think you are saying that you crank it,it starts,then it goes dead over and over again?

or are you saying that you think the security system has disabled your engine?i have a '85 535i and a '84 528e i've had a different problem with the 535i and have just been driving the point being that i cant remember everything about the 535i but i can look and tell you where everything is if you dont know or cant find out.

have you tried holding your foot down on the accelerator while you were trying to crank it?this shouldnt have to be done if your engine is repaired and adjusted properly,but you are just trying to see if it will run.

i dont think the security system would disable the engine like that as you say "locked" which could either mean the security system locked out the engine or that someone told you your motor is "locked up" and that cant be if it runs at all...

if it stays running with your foot on the gas a little then you will need some adjustment or some parts.probably a visit to a bmw shop.i was able to get both the 528 and 535 engine running smoothly with a flat head screwdriver and an allen wrench as well as doing some basic maintenence like changing the plugs,wires,rotor,cap,and oil,air and fuel filters(there are two filters on the 5 series bmw)without taking an 85 model car to the shop and paying a bunch of money to get it fixed,but thats not for everyone.good luck.

1986 528E when engine is hot and is under 2000 revs the oil light comes on

Hi leslieb,
First thing, we need more imfo? Does the engine make any sounds that it wasn't making before. What condition is the engine oil and when did you last change it? What engine oil are you using in you engine and what engine type is it?

I suggest you check the oil pressure sender unit switch, which you'll find in close proximity to the oil filter housing. There is a good chance that it's defective....a replacement may fix the problem....If not then you;re most probably in for an engine re-build.

Let us know how you get on?
