What are the steps in changing the oil in a 1986 Lincoln Town Car

1) Purchase appropriate oil filter, sump drain bung washer and chosen engine oil.
2) Prepare an oil pan, sump bung wrench and oil filter removal tool (check access to oil filter to be sure that your tool is suitable.)
3) Run the engine until its warm to hot.
4) With the car jacked up and secured, remove engine oil filler cap and remove engine oil sump drain bung and allow oil to flow out into your drain pan. Keep an eye on your oil and make sure it doesn't overflow from your drain pan.

5) Refit sump bung with new washer and tighten. Do not over-tighten, and be especially careful when tightening into an alluminium sump.

6) Remove oil filter. Oil will flow out from this filter when removing, so your drain pan will need to be under the filter housing when removing.

7) Run a smear of clean engine oil around the filter rubber seal and refit new filter. Tighten hand tight only. Do NOT crank this filter super tight as you may damage the rubber seal and even the filter casing which can impede oil flow.

8) Refill engine with proper quantity of oil. If you cannot find how much oil your engine is supposed to take, then refill with the same quantity of oil which you drained out.

9) Restart the engine while checking the oil pressure warning light on the dash. The warning light may stay on for three or four seconds and then go out. If this light stays on for longer, then stop your engine and check for oil leaks at the filter body and sump drain bung.

10) Once the engine oil pressure warning light is off after starting, stop the engine and check the engine oil level (with vehicle on the flat and off any axle stands.)

11) Road test the vehicle, driving it for a mile or two before re-checking for oil leaks under the engine bay and engine oil quantity.

How do i change my oil in the jetta 2004 2.0?

Add an engine cleaning treatment to the oil fill plug,run the car for 10 mins to slightly heat the oil, raise the front of the car, put it on axle stands, get under the car & locate the oil sump drain plug, place a suitable container under the sump to catch the oil, remove the drain plug, let ALL of the oil run out of the sump until just drips are coming out very slowly, like 1 per 2 or 3 seconds, replace the sump drain plug & new copper washer if required, next remove the oil filter, if it is too hard to turn with a suitable wrench then jus stab it with a screwdriver & use this as leverage, replace with a new oil filter, add about a quarter of the filters volume to the new filter before fitting it & also rub some oil around the O ring seal, tighten the new oil filter by hand, until its just tight enough to complete a seal around its housing, jack up the vehicle, remove the axle stands, lower the vehicle, & fill up with your chosen oil, job done, have a beer & congratulate yourself on a job well done that has saved you a pretty penny .

How do I change the oil on a Porsche 911 Turbo? Anything I sould know?

  • Jack up your Porsche using a floor jack and place the car securely on jack stands at all four corners using the factory jacking points.
  • 2 Place an oil container under the oil drain plug of the motor.
  • 3 Using an 8-mm allen socket, remove the drain plug at the bottom of the oil pan.
  • 4 Let the oil drain thoroughly--this will take about 20 to 25 minutes.
  • 5 Once all the oil is drained from the engine, install a new drain plug along with a new aluminum sealing washer. Tighten the drain plug to 37 lbs .

  • The oil filter cartridge is located in front of the oil pan on the right side. With an oil filter removal wrench, unscrew and remove the cartridge. Be careful of spilling oil.
  • Install a new oil filter cartridge and O-ring. Before installation, run a bead of oil around the O-ring to lubricate it. Torque the oil filter cartridge to 19 lbs.
  • Pour new oil into the oil filler neck located in the engine bay. 1998 to 2001 911s (996) take 8.5 quarts, and 2004 and up take 8.25 quarts. Newer 911s (997) take 9 quarts. When filling the engine with oil, pour in 8 quarts and then use the dipstick to get the amount of oil exact.
  • Lower the car off the jackstands.

    I took off the oil filter to my 95 jeep cherokee straight and it wont drain out.

    the oil will NOT drain out of the filter mounting but will drain out of the plug on the oilpan(sump).located under the engine,at the bottom of the oil pan.use a new washer when replacing it,and only use a ring spanner(wrench)to remove may have to remove the splash guard to get to the underside of the engine.(if fitted to your car)

    Where is the oil filter and oil pan?

    the oil filter lookes like a bean can (slightly thicker)on the side of the engine block.and the oil pan is also called the sump,its on the bottom of the engine (you get to it from under the car)and the plug is normally on the bottom most part of the sump to allow it to drain all the oil from it.....some cars you have to take off the splash guard under the engine to get to the underside of the engine.

    How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2

    Try this.

    On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

    Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

    Under the engine block you will find the sump.

    On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

    Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

    Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

    When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

    Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

    Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

    Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

    If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

    Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

    Now lower the car to to the ground.

    At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

    Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

    If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

    Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

    With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

    Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

    Check the oil level and top up as required.

    I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

    This should solve the problem.
