    is it cover for the valves or something loose

  • Samuel Charles Spriggs May 11, 2010

    Is there about a 2" opening where you are pouring the oil. Is it on a valve cover or somewhere else on the block?

There should be a cap indicated by an oil spout. If by being blocked you mean you can't hang an oil can into the hole and have it stay there, you may have to hold it just inside the lip. Sometimes the rocker arm lines up and blocks the hole unless it is on the opening stroke and compressed on that cylinder. It would not hurt to bump the starter and see if you get more clearance.

I have 2004 ford taurus that has a #4 misfire I have changed plugs and wires also changed injector checked compression. changed coil and fuel filter and tried a cam sensor... THE PLUG IS VERY WET whats...

What kind of wet? Is the wetness gas, oil, or water? There are different types of fouling possible with reading the color of the old plug being a good indicator. Is the compression within limits?

Check your intake manifold by taking it off and comparing the ports going into the head. If the intake port on #4 cylinder is wet there may be a problem in the Intake. You will also be able to look at the intake valve stems on most motors. The newer designs have the water going into the block directly so the Intake contains no water.

You could have a bad oil seal on the valve stem. You could have a head gasket leak. Even some oil rings can still sling oil and if the power rings are good, it still will compress and give good readings.

You need to run the motor again and try wiping the plug again to see what kind of deposit is on it.

Oli pump change how to fix

You have to drain the oil, remove the oil pan, remove the two 1/2inch bolts that hold the oil pump to the block and one nut that holds the pick up tube then reinstall the new one, put new oil pan gasket on and reinstall the pan. It can be done inside the van but will not be easy.

Where is the block heater cord located on the 2003 E-250 ( it's a converted camper van)?

IF it has one, its located at one of the freeze plugs on a side of the engine. So you will need to first verify IF it even has one, and then if it does, follow the wires, till you find the plug.

Oil leak in my 97 ford f 250 van?

truthfully , wear and tear. rubber gaskets can not last forever, they are exposed to extreme conditions (weather) and naturally occur over time.
the leak can be premature if there's been a history of abuse, or neglect.
over filling the oil and even faulty parts causing the oil pressure to get too high can cause this.

Driving a 2003 Ford windstar. Went to pass and

Very common on this make and model trans, pump drive splines inside torque converter strip out and pump is not turning, Most times there is no damage to pump shaft. Remove trans and remove torque converter, inspect the splines at the very bottom of the hub hole. If stripped out inspected pump shaft splines which are the smaller center splines coming out of trans, if ok replace torque converter and re-install trans, change out fluid, clean any metal from magnet and replace filter, fill with fluid and verify proper operation.
