I want to do any oil and filter change on my 2006 Astra 4 door hatch it is Holden GM model AH CDx it has an ecotec 1.8l unleaded petrol engine


So what is the problem? The new filter for a Z18XE screws directly on to the front of the engine block behind the radiator, and the oil drains out of the drain plug at the base of the sump. The Z18XER only differs in that the filter sits in a round black housing visible from the top right of the engine and is requires a 32mm spanner to remove the cover. The filter is different from that on the Z18XE

2000 toyota sienna enging knock when start up. engine knocks briefly than goes away after sitting a couple hours


it may be from a complete drain back of sump oil
check that you have a good quality oil filter in place with an anti-drain back valve in place ( cheap filters omit this valve)
check the viscosity of the oil you are using as it may be to light for the conditions

Nissan oil capacity QD32


Cut the side out of a 10 litre oil container to catch the used oil.
Use a plastic shopping bag around the filter to catch most of the oil when you maneouvre the filter out of the engine compartment. About 6 liters new oil, diesel 15w40 dino oil is what I use to refill both sump and oil filter, about 5.3 in sump, the rest in the filter. Run engine and then recheck on dipstick after engine has been stopped for 5 minutes to allow drain back to sump.great thing is that you don't have to jack up the vehicle to get under it just to do the oil, but it makes it easier to do the filter if you remove the left front wheel and go through the rubber side curtains between the wheel well and the engine bay to get to the filter, especially if the engine is hot.

How to change the oil


You will need a sump plug removal tool.
On older vehicles, this was just with a wrench.
But it could be a special key, check the plug on the base of the sump.
Take keys from ignition (as you do not want to accidentally start an engine with no oil.
Open the oil filler cap, place a container under the vehicle (could be quite a few litres of oil to come out) and remove the sump plug.
Leave the vehicle to do this for a short while, until it all stops dripping out.
Now you would want to change the oil filter.
These are in different location, but you can get a filter wrench to wrap around to remove.
PRE FILL the new oil filter with clean oil before installing (This stops any air locks when you start the engine after the change)
Hand tighten the new oil filter, they do not need a great deal of torque to screw in place. so generally a good hand tighten is enough.
You may need a new washer for the sump plug (some oil filter kits come with this in the box)
Now that the new filter is on, and the sump plug is back on. Fill the engine with the correct amount and type of oil.
I do not know the exact amount you will need.
But it is better to fill a little at a time, check the dip stick for the correct level.
When you are at the correct level.
Run the engine for a few minutes at IDLE.
Stop the engine and check the oil level again.

You should be all good after this.

Also check again after a few miles, that the sump is not leaking, and that the oil filter is also not leaking.

What are the steps in changing the oil in a 1986 Lincoln Town Car


1) Purchase appropriate oil filter, sump drain bung washer and chosen engine oil.
2) Prepare an oil pan, sump bung wrench and oil filter removal tool (check access to oil filter to be sure that your tool is suitable.)
3) Run the engine until its warm to hot.
4) With the car jacked up and secured, remove engine oil filler cap and remove engine oil sump drain bung and allow oil to flow out into your drain pan. Keep an eye on your oil and make sure it doesn't overflow from your drain pan.

5) Refit sump bung with new washer and tighten. Do not over-tighten, and be especially careful when tightening into an alluminium sump.


6) Remove oil filter. Oil will flow out from this filter when removing, so your drain pan will need to be under the filter housing when removing.


7) Run a smear of clean engine oil around the filter rubber seal and refit new filter. Tighten hand tight only. Do NOT crank this filter super tight as you may damage the rubber seal and even the filter casing which can impede oil flow.


8) Refill engine with proper quantity of oil. If you cannot find how much oil your engine is supposed to take, then refill with the same quantity of oil which you drained out.


9) Restart the engine while checking the oil pressure warning light on the dash. The warning light may stay on for three or four seconds and then go out. If this light stays on for longer, then stop your engine and check for oil leaks at the filter body and sump drain bung.


10) Once the engine oil pressure warning light is off after starting, stop the engine and check the engine oil level (with vehicle on the flat and off any axle stands.)


11) Road test the vehicle, driving it for a mile or two before re-checking for oil leaks under the engine bay and engine oil quantity.

How change engine oil and engine filter


Remove bung on the bottom of the sump with a 14mm socket. The filter ison the exhaust side of the engine above the front driveshaft faceing slightly backward's can only be removed and replaced from underneath. Its not easily got out after unscrewing you will need to slide it back to get it down past the driveshaft. Replace the filter and fill with semi synthetic oil 6.5 ltr's. Start it up leave at idle and wait for the oil light to go out. When the oil light goes out stop and leave stopped for about 1 hour and check oil level top up if necesery. Cheers

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.

The yellow oil light comes on for about 5-10 secs when you start the car from cold, and then goes off.


Hi

The usual problems that would give you a delay in the oil warning light going out are...

1. Oil contaminated by fuel, and thin due to fuel injection system problems, and fuel draining into sump.

( How long ago did you last change the oil and filter ? Usually about....1 Yr or 12.OOO Mls)
Wipe oil from engine dip stick on tissue, and smell it for fuel !

Have you noticed you use a lot of fuel lately, and the car blows black smoke from exhaust on hard acceleration ?

2. Oil Warning light transmitter faulty. ( The Most Common !)
3. Oil pump pick up strainer clogged.
4. Oil pump faulty.
5 Oil draining back into the sump from the oil filter.( Faulty check valve )

If I were you, I would change the Oil and Filter, and renew the Oil Warning Light Transmitter, and go from there.
If you have a Master Oil Pressure Guage, fit it to the block when the O/W/ Transmitter is off, and run engine to confirm pressure is there from start up, and what it reads when hot, this will put your mind at ease.

Good Luck !

John.

check oil pressure with test gauge from near large engine oil filter and cooler assembly, to rule out sender unit issue, if same readings check oil pick up sucking air O ring leaking?
releif valves in oil filter cooler assembly, stuck/jamming open?
if vehicle has been sitting for a couple of days and this happens light should only stay on 1-2 seconds go out and then gauge starts reading
have seen this on older higher km vehicles bad ones have balance shaft centre journal in sump worn out (new sump)
