    I ALSO JUST PURCHASED A 1994 MAZDA 323 LE IN GREAT CONDITION. I ALSO KNOW THE OIL , BRAKES NEED TO BE CHANGED.BUT I HAVE,NT ANY MANUAL TO SEE WHERE ANYTHING IS OR WHAT THE FLUID LEVELS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE.

    MY BRAKE PEDAL INSIDE THE CAR, I FEEL IS MUCH TOO CLOSE TO THE FLOOR. DO I NEED NEW BRAKES OR POSSIBLY ONLY NEED AN ADJUSTMENT? THANK YOU.

Dont worry about pulling the wrong plug but just look for the oil pan and there is your little plug that needs to come out!

Where is oil plug on Mazda 323 bg 1991


The oil plug for the engine oil drain,is on the engine sump,which is under the engine and after you lift it up on stands,you will locate it about 20-25 cm far from the Crankshaft pulley which rotates when the engine is running with a belt for alternator,and this plug is facing the location of the front seat passenger if is left hand driven.By using a 19 mm ring spanner loose and remove -by having a drainer under -leaving the oil to come out.

Want to change oil and filter in sienna (toyota) 09


get underneath and look for it. the plug will be on the bottom of the oil pan in the sump portion. the filter will be readily accessible from the underside of the vehicle as well, possibly concealed underneath a cover or hatch.

Oil Change


Nice and easy, drop the oil from the bottom of the sump, pull the oil check stick, remove filter in the black cylindrical housing at the front of the engine it has a massive hexagon shape on the top which simply unscrews with the right tool, to reveal the filter, replace the sump bolt using a new copper washer, replace filter and put oil in whilst checking dipstick as you go.Good luck.Davelee

Distributor timing is off


there are 2 ways you can set the timing... the right way and the lazy way... if you do not have access to a timing light grab a friend you can trust... have them put the parking brake on and power brake of lug the motor (holding the brake and giving it gas) at the base of your dist. there should be a bolt of nut. loosen the bolt or nut and turn dist until it just starts to knock and back it off a little bit... and retighten nut or bolt... that should get you close enough... a timing light is still the most accurate and best way to set it but this also works its just more dangerous ie: getting ran over

the lifters are naking noise because they are worn out or the engine oil is not reaching them due to the oil pump,but due to your cars year they might be just worn out there is only one way to fix a problem like this is to get then replaced there is no quick fix,and also they will just get louder and louder like tick tick tick and it will sound quicker.
