    For changing engine oil, yes, it's helpful.
    But for the Auto-Transmission Fluid problem, I can't get any clear image on the procedure for my Ford Range Hurricane.


    Anyway, 10x a lot.

To change your oil you will need to get some running boards so your truck will be up on angle for the oil to drain. Get an oil catcher for the old oil to drain in and some oil catch clothes for incase of spill. find the drain plug under the oil pan and loosen slow till oil comes out and make sure the catch is there and dont bring the plug out fast do it slow, after all oil is drained then you must remove the oil filter, its located on the side bottom of the engine what you will need is a gripper ring that goes around the filter to loosen it then take it off and be careful they will be some oil still inside it. when putting on the new filter make sure the oil plug is screwed back in and you want to take some new oil and put around the black seal ring on the filter then only hand tighten it. fill your truck with the recamended oil. Now for the transmission fluid the procedure is the same for the oil except you probably dont need the truck up on the running boards any more. on the transmission they will be a drain plug and catch the old fluid please like the oil after its dry put plug back in and go under hood and get a small funnel and put in the check fluid hole and start filling with the recomended fluid and the suggested how much. or put two corts and stop and check with the check stick then just keep filling till it says full on the check stick level.

Hi All Please help, what is the capacity of oil in a ford ranger 2.2 2014 base line? Also after the oil filter and change the oil light comes on. I used 7L of oil. Feedback will be appreciated


My best research shows this engine holds only 3.8 liters. If the engine is overfilled, the crank and connecting rods will be submerged in oil and can aerate air into the oil as it turns, causing low oil pressure, causing the light. If it is high enough to touch the piston bottoms, engine damage can result.

Service 100 thousands miles


The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)


Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

2002 ranger 3.0 vulcan with 90k miles has been running sluggish, mostly on highway. Just no power. I am original owner and I know this is no rocket, but somethings wrong. No codes, new plugs and wires at...


Could be a handful of possibilities: When was last service - tune up and filters changed? Sluggish on highway suggests possible fuel filter. For the record filters, plugs etc should be changed every 30k. From what you're telling us, you've been running on borrowed time.

What is oil change schedule for 2007 DTS also transmission fluid change schedule


Your vehicle's engine requires oil meeting GM Standard GM6094M. You should look for and use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM6094M. SAE 5W-30 is best for your vehicle.
The best Brand is 5W-30, Mobile 1 synthetic oil, but you can use Castrol GTX 5W-30, too. It is very important to use only one barand of engine oil.
When the CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message in the Driver Information Center (DIC) comes on,
means that an oil change service is required for your vehicle.
If the engine oil life system is ever reset accidentally, you must service an oil change for your vehicle within 3,000 miles (5 000 km), or three months wichever comes first, since your last service.
The maintenace tune ups for this car are scheduled at 25K, 50K, 75K, 100K and so on.
Dealer recomend to change the transmission oil and filter at Maintenace II, at 50K, and the air filter too. Use only DEXRON®-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid.
The dealer sugest to flush the radiator every 75K and use 50/50 mixture with distilled water, and use only DEX-COOL. I recommend to flush every 50K.

How to cure high fuel consumption


There are a whole bunch of ways. First look in the trunk and get rid of any thing that doesn't belong( clothes, books, golf clubs) The less things that are in the car the less your car weighs. Check tire pressures, even if they are 5psi low they car create mor resistance when movong. Check the air filter, make sure it's clean.And don't just tap it out, that doesn't do any thing but spread out the dirt. dirty air filters cost on average about 11% of fuel costs. Make sure the oil is changed every 3000 miles, when the oil is dirty it get thicker and the engine has to work harder to circulate it. Same with transmission fluid, change it when its recomended. Make sure your using what the manufacturer recomend on fuel grade if its too low a grade it's not burning efficient same with too high a grade. And get a tune up when recomended. most manufactures recomend this be done between 50k and 75k miles

Recommended service at 60,000 miles??


Hello at 60,000 miles you should have all of the following done.
1) Have you transmission flushed completely
2) change your fuel filter
3) oil and filter change
4) inspect your brakes and rotate your tires
5) replace air filter if needed
6) clean your injectors by pressure
7) have your suspension check
8) have your belts inspected
9) if your differential is not leaking. leave it alone due to age.
10 have your coolant flushed out.

If you had any of the following done recently then subtract from the list.
this may be costly so you may want to do little by little unless you can have it done all at once.
