Why does my car make a heavy clunking noise when I restart the engine after setting a short time?


Hi,

Have a listen near the oil pump. Could be a problem with bringing the oil to the engine. A clogged oil screen which is in the engine combined with a failing oil pump may be causing this.

This is a level 4 out of 5 DIY so be prepared for the work.

I hope that helps.

Turn the key and it will not start


cold weather kills batteries this time of year...heres why..most batteries are a chemical factory..the acid and water separate as the battery discharges..also the chemical process is lessened when the air temps go below freezing by around 50% or more depending on the age of the battery..in extreme cold areas, external heat sources are required to keep engines warm enough to run..in alaska for example,the batteries are taken out entirely and put inside to keep warm..sometimes a fire pit is used to warm the engine from below (red hot coals no flame)..also in very cold weather, the engine oil will get very thick..in some cases the oil will actually glue the engine semi solid..locking it up..if its a cheaper oil that whathappens..I like 20 miles north of st louis in illinois and when it gets below 30 degrees outside i place a under cabinet 350 watt heater(used for keeping food warm to serve) upside down under my engine overnite..this keeps the block warm and the oil thinned out..and works very well for me..my car will start whe no one elses will in my neighborhood..hope tyhis helps you..

Suitable engine oil for camry 96


  • Hi, Lijo.

  • The manufacturer recommends 5W30 conventional. I like Castrol myself. for a 1996 Camry. Newer Camry's require a 5W20 synthetic but not yours. Looks like 4 quarts is the amount.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I lost the owner's manual. I saw an tv program that said changing the oil every 3,000 miles may not be necessary and to check the owner's manual. What is the frequency reccomended for the 2009 Jeep...


I think you are right. Contact a dealer and they will give you the precise exact answers you need and maybe even print the sheet with reservice requirements on it for you. They always try to earn new customers in service

Oil knock in hot weather


Does it knock hard or just rattle loud,? A lot of cars are noisy till the oil gets pumped up top. I hate to see people floor when they first start up, very bad idea, no oil up top, anyway, your oil weight goes by the outside temperature. If you live in Florida, it gets hot, I use 10w-40 year round, up north is a different story, 5w-30 in the winter would be fine, but summer time you could go heavier no problem. My brother uses straight 30 weight with a bottle of Marvel mystery oil as the 5th qt. The stuff works great. It cleans the inside of your engine like you wouldn't believe. He is one of these guys that takes the oil filters apart to check them out. Hope this helps.

Wats the best motor oil for a 94 toyota camry with 100,000 miles... 15W-40,20W-40, 20W-50


Climate has as much to do with your choice of motor oil as the amount of miles on the engine. If you live in a cold climate and your winter temps are often below freezing, you'll want to go with a lighter oil that will circulate better in the cold temperatures. Conversely, in a hot climate, a heavier oil that won't break down in viscosity would be a good choice. As far as the mileage goes, most oils are about the same and as long as you change your oil often, whatever oil you choose based on climate should suit you and the car well. I hope this clarifies your question. Best of luck!

Best oil to use in 2006 nissan maxima


Depending on the weather condtions where you live will determine the type of oil you should use. If you are in cold weather most manufactures for newer cars 2003 and up recommend 5-30 weight detergent oil. if it is hot you may want to go to 10-40 detergent. If you have the engine broken in say 30,000 miles I recommend my customers use 5-30 synthetic oil, it has better lubricating and heat removal qualities that regular motor oils don't have. also oil filters are important too. Iprefer fram oil filters, the heavy guard filters. they are more expensive but filter much finer particles. and last longer. So the better the oil and the better the filter the longer your engine will last. Don't use parfin based oil as it will damage your engine.
