How do i change the oil?


I'm assuming this is for a vehicle.
Read the owners manual and purchase the correct oil and oil filter for the vehicle before starting.
The workers at any automotive store can help with that also if you don't have the information needed.
I like to do the air filter at the same time,you don't have to but it's good to.
If possible it's always to change the oil warm NOT HOT!
Park the vehicle,put on the parking brake then open the hood/engine compartment.
Look for the oil fill cap and loosen but do not remove.
Directly under the engine there is an oil pan. On the pan there should be a bolt, make sure your not messing with the transmission.
Put a drain pan under the bolt then remove bolt letting the oil drain into the pan.
Once it is just barely dribbling out reinstall the drain bolt.
Some have what is called a crush washer,either way DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN!!! If you do you could strip the threads then you will have BIG problems.
Now find the oil filter, put drain pan under that also and remove the oil filter. Sometimes people over-tighten them so it might be a little tough.
Once that is removed pour a little of the new oil into the filter and rub some on the rubber ring on the new filter. Now install new filter. It only has to be hand tight,you do not need to tighten it with a wrench of any kind.
MAKE SURE THE DRAIN BOLT HAS BEEN REINSTALLED then remove oil fill cap on the top of the engine and fill oil to manufacturer specs.
Check oil level with dip stick,if good reinstall oil fill cap and dispose of oil correctly at a recycle center.

The oil cap is on so tight, I can not remove it to add oil. I tried pushing down on it, as I tried to turn, but it won't budge. Any suggestions?


Use a large pair of channel lock pliers to remove the cap. Once removed apply a bit of grease to the rubber oil ring on the cap before reinstalling

It seems as if the oil fill cap is crossthreaded and the complete tube wants to turn as well


Depending on what engine you have in your Silverado some of them the oil cap and tube come out together and sometimes the tube doubles as a hold down for a dust cover on the en

Need a diagram of oil change on a 2005 Chevy Cavalier


You probably have the 2.2L ecotec engine. The oil filter is what they call a canister filter. It is located just below the fill cap under a cap/housing with a 36mm head. The o-ring on the housing/cap should be replaced with the filter. The drain plug is on the bottom of the engine on the oil pan and can be loosened with a wrench (either 13mm or 15mm depending on which drain plug was installed at the factory)

Where does the motor oil go for a durango 2001?


pop the hood and on top close to middle of the engine, theres a black plastic cap with either an oil dripper icon on it or oil written on it. pour the oil into there. easier with funnel. keep checking the oil dip stick to make sure you don't over fill it. take out the dipstick, wipe oil off with towel, fully reinsert dip stick, then immediatley take back out to see the level. the oil mark should be between fill and full marks. If you have enough oil in the motor, and the oil light is flickering on and off you might need an oil pressure sensor (take to local shop)

How much brake fluid should I put in my 2005 Taurus


There should be a fill line but if you don't see it you can fill it to where you think the bottom of the cap would be when it is replace. It really doesn't matter how full it is you just don't want it spilling out when you replace the cap. As your brakes wear down it takes more and more oil to push the brake pad out to the rotor. That's the reason your brake fluid is low.

Oil filter is busted and too tight cant remove how can I remove


jam a screwdriver in the side and turn it loose. Otherwise use a rubber oil filter wrench/jar cap opener.
Never tighten more than hand tight when replacing with new one.

My 2004 dodge durango runs hot when sitting in traffic but when I start moving again it goes back to normal and it also seems to lack coolant even after filling it up


First thing I would check is the cooling fan. While running in your driveway allow the car to warm sufficently. The fan should kick on. If it isnt running check the fuse located on the driver side kick panel first. There is also a relay under the hood inside a black box on the right hand hand if facing the engine.

As far as the coolant goes. make sure the thermostat is open when you fill with coolant. If it isnt you only fill the reservoir and then when the thermostat opens it draws down water through the engine making it low again. Same deal, just allow the car to warm up with the radiator cap off. You should see the water swirling if the thermostat is open. SHoudl open around 180 to 190 dpending on which yo9u have installed. Be very careful not to open the cap under pressure. Safe thing to do is squueze the top radiator hot to see if its rigid or soft. If it rigid (tight) dont dare open the radiator cap. If you can aqueeze it easily go and and half turn the cap to allow the pressure to vent just to be safe then remove it al the way. Be caeful because sometimes water will sure out. Be sure to replace the cap prior to shutting the engine off or else if will surge water out whn the engine stops. Good luck and be safe.
