It anybody's guess what kind of oil you use. But if your question is what kind of oil SHOULD you use, that a completely different question. What do you intend to use the oil IN? A vehicle? A chainsaw? An 1890's vintage steam locomotive engine? A two-cycle engine moped? A gas-powered model airplane? What is it?

Is there a drain bolt for the ATF on a 2004 toyoya solara


most toyotas do have a drain bolt on transmission pan for draining the fluid, i would make sure you are draining at the correct time, this depends on what type of oil it uses. i think it is the TIV. call dealer and make sure ,the drain and refill holds 3.7 qts.

I can tell you this, i do not like the drain and refill , you are only draining 3.7 qts, then you add new oil to mix with the rest of the dirty oil in transmission,
The best way is to flush system using a BG flush machine or compatible machine, this way 100% of the oil is removed and replaced with new.

Can i drain the transmission fluid on a 05 suzuki forenza my self?


yes. HOWEVER, whe you refill it. make sure that you put in the correct type of oil. refer to your owner manual prior to putting in any old automatice trranny fluid as some tranny's require a sopecial type of oil, put in the wrong one and you fry your transmission. If its a standard, put in the correct weight of gear oil. Not trying to scare you, but i want to make sure that your REFER TO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL for the correct type of oil to put in after you drain it.

good luck.

Ive put petrol in the oil tank


Just drain the oil, refill, and I think I'd run it to warm it up fully AFTER draining and refiling, and drain and refill again. You shouldn't drive it w/ gasoline in the oil, as it will thin out the oil and it won't lubricate as it should, and the extra half litre would be overfilled a bit, which would cause the oil to foam, which also would affect lubrication. countrycurt0
