Yes the car must be raised up and no it has nothing to do with the oil in the engine. It is in the engine exhaust pipe.

SOURCE: I want to put the front of my 2000 Daewoo Lanos on

owners manuals generally provide jack and support locations. replace the valve cover gasket first and if it was the cause the oil will clean itself up eventually. OEM is at the dealer, and you pay for it. any parts store or ebaymotors can sell you an aftermarket sensor. the trick is to spend the extra 20 bucks and get one which plugs right into your wiring harness, as opposed to a universal one which you have to divine which wire on the sensor goes to which wire on the car. do a search for O2 sensor at autozone and advance websites and you will have some idea of the cost and the options. denso probably made the sensor on your car so do a search of the denso website.

It is located Left Rear Top of engine (Passenger side). Its brass and it screws in. I went online at my library and found diagram at this location. http://content.chiltonsonline.com/Repair/PrintView.aspx.

Next: remove oil plug let oil drain.
Next: remove oil filter
Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug.

I need to change my oil


Actually, your oil filter is a little harder to do than this. The oil filter is not a traditional American type. You will find a metal skid plate or shroud underneath the car that will have to come off first. The filter is one of the paper cartridge types where you remove this metal cylinder, discard the old paper cartridge, and put the new paper cartridge in the metal cylinder and reattach the metal cylinder. I have an ES 350 and its not as easy as the other responder suggested.

Im having a hard time getting the oil pan off of a 2003 Dodge Durango, 5.9 4wheel drive.


The frame is in the way and you have to lift the engine to remove the pan.
  1. Turn on the Durango and run it for at least 10 minutes, a few times around the block is best. This will get the engine oil up to temperature allowing it to drain better for you.Park the vehicle on a flat, stable surface that gives you enough room to move around under. Jack up the Durango following the directions provided with your jack and jack stands.Open the hood of the Durango and located the engine oil cap, found on the right side of the engine, towards the middle. Remove the cap by twisting it off and set aside, allowing ventilation and pressure release.Climb under the vehicle and located the oil pan. The oil pan is on the underside of the engine, between the car's tires. It is a rectangular shaped pan with a plug located on the end towards the back of the car.Place an oil drip pan under the oil pan and pull the plug by twisting it and pulling it. This will release all oil from the vehicle, draining it into the pan below. Allow the oil to drain until there is nothing left coming out.Use a wrench to loosen the bolts of the oil pan. There are a total of 17 of them located around the edge of the oil pan, connecting it to the frame of the engine. Store safely.Remove the oil pump pickup tube and oil pan gasket, which are connected to the oil pan. You will find these as soon as you drop the oil pan.
    to Replace the Oil Pan Gasket in a Dodge Durango
    1. Jack up the front of the Dodge Durango, and install a jack stand. Block the rear wheels. Remove the oil plug and let the oil drain into a pan, being sure to remove as much of the old oil as possible.Loosen the bolts holding the oil pan with a socket wrench, and remove the bolts with your fingers. Remove the oil filter, starter motor, cooler lines, oil level sensor, heated oxygen sensor connector and exhaust y-pipe, and then take off the oil pan.Scrape off the old gasket with a thin putty knife, being very careful not to scrape the surface. Be sure all of the old gasket is removed, then wipe the surface with solvent. Spread a bit of oil on the surface to promote adhesion, and apply the new gasket.Replace the oil pan, exhaust y-pipe, heated oxygen sensor connector, oil level sensor, cooler lines and starter motor, and install a new oil filter.Raise the vehicle slightly with the jack and slide out the jack stand before lowering the vehicle and removing the jacks.Fill the engine with the appropriate amount of oil. Check the level with the dipstick to be sure you have the right amount.
      this will help.thanks.

Where does scion tc manual transmission fluid go?


Heavy tools needed:
-Floor Jack
-Jack stands
-wheel chuck

Hand tools needed:
-3/8" drive ratchet
-12 mm deep socket (a 6" extension isn't shown but also recommended)
-1/2" drive breaker bar
-1/2" drive 10" extension
-1 1/16" deep socket
-1/2" drive 24 mm short socket
-oil catch can
-funnel

Steps:
1)Put the wheel chuck behind your back tire and Pull up your e-brake

2)Find floor jack position

3)Lift car until you can fit jackstands under the car
4)Lower the car a bit so that it sits flat on the jack stands and the floor jack still has a bit of pressure pushing up on the mount

5)Locate the reverse sensor in your engine and unplug the grey connector on it.

6)Right behind it is a 12 mm bolt you have to remove. Use the deep socket 12 mm, extension and ratchet to remove it and just move the metal braket aside a bit.

7)Now use the 1 1/16" deep socket to remove the reverse sensor.

8 )Now get under the car and locate the drain plug.

9)Use the 24 mm socket and the 1/2" drive breaker bar (if your socket is 1/2" drive) and loosen/remove this bolt. This WILL be messy so make sure you have your oil catch can under neath it.
Try to hold the bolt in place as the fluid comes out until a good bit has drained. This will prevent it from going everywhere.
Just let it drain for about 5 minutes.

10)When it's done draining, replace the drain plug and tighten a good bit. It has an aluminum washer so it'll feel like it can keep tightening but just go until you feel it's very snug.

11)Lift your car off the jack stands and lower the car back down. Remove the oil catch can prior to doing this.

12)With car on the ground, grab your funnel and place it in the hole where the reverse sensor would go.

13)Add 2.5 quarts of your desired gear oil. You can use Redline MT90, Amsoil 75W/90 gear oil,...Just make sure it's GL4 compliant

14)Replace reverse sensor and tighten. Again, this also has an aluminum washer so just tighten it until it feels nice and snug. RECONNECT THE GREY PLUG!

15)Replace the 12 mm bolt and just hand tighten until snug.

16)Prior to starting the car, push the clutch in and move through the gears slowly. You should notice a nice, smooth gear transition.

17)Last, clean up, remove wheel chuck from rear tires, and go take it for a spin.

Enjoy!
