Question about 1997 Honda Accord
I want to change the fluid and filter.where is the filter? what type of fluid? how many quarts does it take? Thank You
When you say fluid ... I assume you talking about the oil and oil filter.
If you changing oil here are the steps :
1> Jack up the car, make sure you do not put the jack on the oil pan as it is most likely it will damage the oil pan.. rather put it on the frame which is little bit to the left of the oil pan. Trace the bolt to the rear of the oil pan.. I believe it is a 17mm bolt. Place the oil pan under the bolt and take the bolt off. Almost all your oil will drain out here. Make sure the oil cap on top of the valve cover is taken off.
2> About 10 inches to the top of the oil pan bolt .. you will find the oil filter. Usually you should be able to remove it with your hand, rotating it in an anticlockwise direction. The rest of the oil will drain out here.. so adjust the oil catcher pan accordingly.
3> Take the new oil filter and apply some of the old oil on the rubber gasket of the oil filter and tighten it back up in clock wise direction.
4>Tighten the bolt to the oil pan and lower the car from the jack or jack stand for easier access.
5> Put in 4 quarts of 5W30 or 10 W 40 through the oil cap on the valve cover.
6> Wait a few minutes and pull the car back a few feet. Check for leaks and you should be good to go.
