How do i change oil and filter in toyota estima


There are two ways of changing the oil, and both involve running the engine until hot first.

Firstly, don't forget to have the spares (this includes enough oil to fill the sump -- find this quantity in the vehicle's instruction-book --and filter) and the necessary tools (oil-filter remover belt or long, thick screwdriver, sump-plug key and bowl) to hand.

The first way is to put a bowl which will contain enough to hold the lubricant under the sump and carefully releasing the sump plug. Do wear plastic (not rubber, as these dissolve in oil) whilst you're doing this as used oil can be carcinogenic. Now (remember the engine is hot), carefully loosen the sump plug. Put the bowl underneath the sump and remove the sump plug. It is more important to avoid the boiling oil than to catch the sump plug, which can be fished out later, when cool. Once cool, remove the bowl and replace the sump plug.

The second way is to go to a garage which offers free oil changes (you only buy the oil) and they will put a tube down your dipstick aperture and vacuum the oil out. This is not as good as allowing the oil to drip through the sump drain hole.

Now remove the oil filter using the strap or by piercing the old filter with a screwdriver and using that as a lever and turning the filter anticlockwise.

Put a little oil on the seal of the new filter and screw this onto the seating by hand. DO NOT TIGHTEN BEYOND HAND-TIGHT.

Refill the sump with the manufacturer's recommended type and quantity of clean oil, though there may be a little residual oil in the engine, so do check before overfilling. Do not overfill.

Put a piece of sticky paper in the driver's door jamb with the date and mileage at which you changed the oil and filter.

SUMP PLUG REMOVAL


Hi there
Well there is a few ways to remove a rounded sump plug and the best way will be to either drill a center hole [small] then let it drain out the oil, then drill out with a bigger one and use a easy out to un do it [ but when its out put some of the old oil back in to wash out any swarf ] replace new plug with new gasket washer but dont over tighten when replacing .
THE other way is to tap it with a screwdriver and hammer but only lightly and on the plug only. and do it after a run so the oil and sump plug are hot.

Change transmission fluid vehicle


Hi Dee Dee, you have a very messy job ahead of you, in Australia GM did away with drain plugs in the transmissions, Start with a service kit, this is a sump gasket and oil filter, you have to loosen the sump bolts starting from 1 corner, allow 1 corner or the sump to come down this will control where the oil comes out of the sump making it easier to catch the old oil, less mess, when oil is finished draining remove the remaining bolts and remove pan, At this point it is advisable to change the filter (hence the kit) because you must replace the sump gasket

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

How do i change my oil in the jetta 2004 2.0?


Add an engine cleaning treatment to the oil fill plug,run the car for 10 mins to slightly heat the oil, raise the front of the car, put it on axle stands, get under the car & locate the oil sump drain plug, place a suitable container under the sump to catch the oil, remove the drain plug, let ALL of the oil run out of the sump until just drips are coming out very slowly, like 1 per 2 or 3 seconds, replace the sump drain plug & new copper washer if required, next remove the oil filter, if it is too hard to turn with a suitable wrench then jus stab it with a screwdriver & use this as leverage, replace with a new oil filter, add about a quarter of the filters volume to the new filter before fitting it & also rub some oil around the O ring seal, tighten the new oil filter by hand, until its just tight enough to complete a seal around its housing, jack up the vehicle, remove the axle stands, lower the vehicle, & fill up with your chosen oil, job done, have a beer & congratulate yourself on a job well done that has saved you a pretty penny .

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

Hi there I had the SAME problem in my 318i. I cracked mine driving over a parking barrier in the road (long story!) Anyway. Take your car to a garage and they will drain all your oil out of the engine and sump area. They can then inject a resin into the hairline crack and once it's all set, they'll put the oil back into your car and you won't have any leak from that area again! try that first before getting a new sump. As the area needs to be bone dry from oil, they draining of oil out of your car and the waiting for the resin to set make it pretty much an all day job. Good luck with it all if you've not repaired it yet.
