How much Oil and what type and how to drain

Hi, I just bought a 1990 daihatsu Applause Xi. The car is a bit rough but runs smooth. The service light has just came on so i need to change the oil, however there is no manual with the car, so i need to know exactly how much oil it takes, and exactly what type, and also where the oil drain plug is. cheers

Hello, oil capacity 3.5 ltrs. oil type for cold climate:5W/30;moderate climate: 10W/30 and hot climate: 20W/50.engine oil classification: API/ACEA: SG/A2-96. there is a drain plug/bolt underneath the engine. you might see it if you raise the vehicle  to an appropriate hight for you. caution, make sure you brace the vehicle. put necessary wheel brace in front and rear of the wheels to keep the car from sliding and to prevent you from being squished from underneath the car.

I have a 1990 Daihatsu Charade. What type of oil is best for the engine?


ask the car dealer. I think any car service dealer can tell you which oil to use. They usually have a book with most cars and trucks listed (Autozone) and which type of oil you use depends on your type of driving and where you live. Such as mostly cold, hot, dusty etc.

How much engine Oil?


The engine oil capacity of a Daihatsu Sirion, 1000 cc Auto, 1999 is roughly 2.5L assuming the sump was drained and new oil filter installed.
This amount will bring the oil level on the dipstick to the upper line.
As a caution, put in 2L initially, then run the engine for a few moments then switch off. After a few minutes recheck cleaned dipstick level and top up as necessary.
