    I crawled under the car, from the front bumber, down the centerline, to the tranny. I didn't see it going or coming.

    I'll look again tomorrow.

Location of oil filter


It's close enough to the drain plug .It's to the right and a little forward of the drain plug when looking under neath the vehicle. It's mounted in a recessed part of the bottom cover so you have to look up for it.

How many quarts of oil does a 81 ford ranger xlt take.


More than likely it takes 4.5 quarts or possibly 5 with oil/filter change. But to make sure there is an easy way to find out. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain all the oil out and change the filter. Now pour in 4 quarts of the correct weight oil, and start the engine. Let it run for 30 seconds and then shut down for 30 minutes. Check the level of the oil and add as necessary to fill it up. Probably wil take 1/2 or 1 quart. Warning: Do not overfill!

Due to high cost for my Ford Ranger 50k milleage service, I would like to do self-service on my car such as change engine oil, oil filter and also the Auto Transmission Fluid (ATF). Would you please...


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.

Can't locate reserve oil drain plug on 1994 Ford E350


It only has 1 oil pan which is call a dual resreve. One oil plug is a the bottom of the pan the other is at the front of the oil pan. Look at the front of the oil pan for the other drain plug. Make sure on how many quarts of oil it takes. ( I know 5.0 take 5 quarts including oil filter. But then again its a van double check)
