SOURCE: 2006 Saturn Relay Check Engine Light

PO455 is a large evaporative fuel leak. A bad fuel cap is ONE of the things that COULD be the problem. Fuel system cleaning only lightened your wallet. Reading your post is confusing. Did all this start AFTER the Valvoline Wallet Flushing? If so , they left something loose or disconnected. I would find a qualified repair shop to fix the problem, and if it has anything to do with what Valvoline did, make them pay the bill.

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

How to check trans oil level and condition


  • There is a 8mm or 10mm plug on the back of the transmission (underneath the car) When you pull that plug if fluid comes out then it it full. If not you add fluid until it just barely comes out that hole and then the transmission is full.
  • Now you add fluid from the top of the transmission. You have to look way down in the engine bay on top of the transmission for a red or black cap. It may say "do not open" or "open by a technician only." Take and pull that cap off and this is the fill spout for the transmission. It's a fill only, not a check. Add from this spout until it comes out that little plug on the back of the transmission.
  • You will hear people call this a "sealed" transmission of "non-serviceable." Now you can tell them rubbish lol.
  • To check the condition you can look to see if it is getting black or smells burnt. After 50,000 miles the fluid needs flushed and after 100,000 miles you need to change the filter and gasket for the transmission.

Can't find oil filter, need location


2.2 ecotec motor?

The oil filter is located under the oil filter cap located on the drivers side front of the motor. Remove the plastic cover that goes over the top of the engine. As your standing in front of the vehicle look down and just to the right of the intake manifold. You will see a black plastic cap about 3" in diameter. It will have what looks like a large bolt head molded into the top of it. Remove that cap and the oil filter will be under it.

Oil cap and dipstick covered in creamy sludge, is this breather prob as not losing any water


Yes, it could be that a plugged up Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) valve or engine crankcase breather (with filter) is the cause allowing moisture to condense in the crankcase. However, if the valve and breather are okay, a cylinder compression test should be done to verify that the cylinder head gasket is not leaking. Regardless, the engine oil should be drained and the engine flushed with clean oil and an appropriate crankcase flush additive. Entrained water in the oil (the creamy sludge) will damage engine bearings quickly.

There is a white creamy substance around the oil cap what would cause this


The white creamy solution is oil mixed with water. Take out your dipstick and check for the same substance, if so, you have a blown head gasket. If not, it's just condensed water in your valve cover that mixes with the oil, witch isn't really a problem. Have a nice day!

The coolant jug has a creamy tan color fluid in it


that means trans fluid or engine oil is getting into cooant system. Not good. Either a leaky trans cooler in the radiator or a blown head gasket. Hope it's the trans cooler

Cant find oil filter on a 2002 alero 2.2 liter


The oil filter on a 2.2 liter...if it is an ecotec engine is right there toward the front of the engine on the right hand side. It is a cartridge filter. Just unscrew the cap, pull out old filter with the cap. Make sure the gaskets that come with the filter are replaced and snap new filter inside the cap and replace.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located


ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.

White smoke from motor


Checking oil when it's HOT with mask the coolant oil mix formation.
Check the oil when the engine is COLD. If it has creamy/milkshake like oil in the engine crack case then it's a real bad sign.
Check the oil cap when it's COLD. Like for the creamy/milkshake non-oil like cream.
Are you loosing coolant?
Keep a log book on the coolant lost.
Does it over heat or does it the engine ran hotter compare to few months ago?

To pin point a blowing headgasket you will need
1)coolant system compression tester
or
2)chemical reaction test for combustion test gas
If it's the org. engine from 1986,with over 86,000 then blown headgasket is a good possiblity.
Tow it to the shop and let the pro to do the coolant pressure test and combustion gas test.
A full head gasket job with head re-surface (if it can be re-use) is worth it.
Shop around on well estiblished independent shops.
Fix the blown head gasket at the first stage of failure can safe you thousand on a head replacement.

Blowing oil and smoke out of valve cover. radiato is boiling over


There are several things that can be causing the problems. Blowing smoke and oil out of the valve cover is usually a sign that the engine rings are worn out and/or the PVC valve is not working correctly to remove the gases from the engine case. The radiator boiling over can be from several causes. A bad radiator cap can cause the engine to boil over. Lack of antifreeze can also do the same thing since the later model smog engines run at a higher temperature and use higher pressure radiator caps. A cracked head can also cause the radiator and engine to overheat. This can be checked at a local parts store with a radiator checker that will show if there is exaust gases in the radiator when the engine is running. Worse case senerio is you blew a head gasket out and your oil will look like bubbly milky creamy in color from the water that has gotten into and mixed with the oil from the engine. You are going to have to do some trouble shooting on this one to find the answers. Good Luck, RAC
