You are referring to the drain bolt on the oil pan? You can use a crescent wrench. I have a 92 and I can never remember what size the drain bolt is, so I always go under with my trusty adjustable crescent wrench. Let me know if u need more info.

How to change my oil


Hi Katie,
Run the engine for a few minutes to warm up the oil. Switch off engine Remove the oil filler cap which is on the top of the rocker box. Then. Unscrew and remove the oil drain plug which will be located on the underside of the sump. The plug is usually made of brass and measures about one inch across. NOTE a) the oil could be hot!, b) make sure that you have a bowl underneath the sump to catch the oil in.
Once the oil has drained out you should remove the old oil filter andreplace it with a fresh one.
Finally, replace the oil drain plug BEFORE refilling with fresh oil.

How do i change oil and filter in toyota estima


There are two ways of changing the oil, and both involve running the engine until hot first.

Firstly, don't forget to have the spares (this includes enough oil to fill the sump -- find this quantity in the vehicle's instruction-book --and filter) and the necessary tools (oil-filter remover belt or long, thick screwdriver, sump-plug key and bowl) to hand.

The first way is to put a bowl which will contain enough to hold the lubricant under the sump and carefully releasing the sump plug. Do wear plastic (not rubber, as these dissolve in oil) whilst you're doing this as used oil can be carcinogenic. Now (remember the engine is hot), carefully loosen the sump plug. Put the bowl underneath the sump and remove the sump plug. It is more important to avoid the boiling oil than to catch the sump plug, which can be fished out later, when cool. Once cool, remove the bowl and replace the sump plug.

The second way is to go to a garage which offers free oil changes (you only buy the oil) and they will put a tube down your dipstick aperture and vacuum the oil out. This is not as good as allowing the oil to drip through the sump drain hole.

Now remove the oil filter using the strap or by piercing the old filter with a screwdriver and using that as a lever and turning the filter anticlockwise.

Put a little oil on the seal of the new filter and screw this onto the seating by hand. DO NOT TIGHTEN BEYOND HAND-TIGHT.

Refill the sump with the manufacturer's recommended type and quantity of clean oil, though there may be a little residual oil in the engine, so do check before overfilling. Do not overfill.

Put a piece of sticky paper in the driver's door jamb with the date and mileage at which you changed the oil and filter.

How to change the oil


You will need a sump plug removal tool.
On older vehicles, this was just with a wrench.
But it could be a special key, check the plug on the base of the sump.
Take keys from ignition (as you do not want to accidentally start an engine with no oil.
Open the oil filler cap, place a container under the vehicle (could be quite a few litres of oil to come out) and remove the sump plug.
Leave the vehicle to do this for a short while, until it all stops dripping out.
Now you would want to change the oil filter.
These are in different location, but you can get a filter wrench to wrap around to remove.
PRE FILL the new oil filter with clean oil before installing (This stops any air locks when you start the engine after the change)
Hand tighten the new oil filter, they do not need a great deal of torque to screw in place. so generally a good hand tighten is enough.
You may need a new washer for the sump plug (some oil filter kits come with this in the box)
Now that the new filter is on, and the sump plug is back on. Fill the engine with the correct amount and type of oil.
I do not know the exact amount you will need.
But it is better to fill a little at a time, check the dip stick for the correct level.
When you are at the correct level.
Run the engine for a few minutes at IDLE.
Stop the engine and check the oil level again.

You should be all good after this.

Also check again after a few miles, that the sump is not leaking, and that the oil filter is also not leaking.

Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

Need to change the oil pressure sqitch on a vw passat


Hi before you do an oil change try seafoam in the engine oil. this can sometimes fix the problems you are having, I used seafoam in engine oil and fuel and breather line and ran engine for 100 miles, but don't run hard, and its cleaned all the sump and oil veins in the engine, as checked with a scope looking though the oil sump plug. it did a really good job, my engine is a bit older than yours 1994. oil sensor is at the bottom of the engine on the sump. pressure sensor is above the oil filter it has a single wire conection
