SOURCE: How much auto trans fluid does a 4.6 litre 1999 range rover really hold?

Best is to fill about 5 litres and start the vehicle.While idling fill oil in 500 ml incriments while checking the level in between.Each vehicle seems to have a mind of its own.I have had no experience with Comma oils.Most effective would be to replace the transmission filter at the same time and there will always be a little oil left in the tourque converter hence the high volume in your manual.

SOURCE: oil capacity nissan td 27 engine

Hi! What I've done in the past is purchase two 5 litre containers of the correct grade oil then carefully topped up until just showng below Max level on dipstick I run the car briefly to check for leaks and to fill up new oil filter I let it settle on level ground with engine switched off then top up slowly to correct level, Oh I think you'll find 6 litres is the Norm!

SOURCE: engine coolant

you need maybe 1+1/2 gallon of distilled water;NOT TAP WATER and 1 gallon of Mazda Coolant; NOT 50/50 mix..


1.from the radiator, remove the drain plug, let it drain. for faster drain, also remove the resevoir cap.

2.when empty, put drain plug back on refill the resevior with the distilled water until full.

3.with the resevior cap off start engine with heat settings on Hi, until the coolant temp guage begin to rise or when thermostat opens. turn off engine.

4. repeat steps 1-3 until only clear water drains.

5.make sure drain plug is in, refill resevior with Mazda coolant til about half way (in case there's any expansion), do not put cap on yet, let the air bleed. start engine, let it run for 5 min.

6. accelerate in park/neutral to 2500RPM's (DO NOT drive yet) to help bleed the air keep an eye on coolant level because you will have to top it off.

7.check level as temp reaches normal; half point as usual. put resevior cap on drive around the block and check level again. make sure coolant is on the proper level; "F" or "MAX"...of course when the engine cools it will be below, but while the temp is normal it should be on the proper level.

What is the sump capacity for a .4cyl diesel pregio van series 1.i drained it and put in 4 and a half litres of oil and the dip stick reads just over half/????

from what you say-- you put in 4.5 litres of oil and it is just over 1/2 but you took out 7 litres , that would be just about right as the other 2.5 litres should make it full on the dip stick
there would be a problem if you took out 10 litres of oil but 6 litres filled it to the full line on the dipstick

If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

How muchtrans fluid do you put in it to a2003 trailblazers transmission line came out all the uid ran out truck want go forward or backward

I would recommend you buy at least four litres of gm capatable transmission fluid, usually dexron four, but be sure to check your owners manual on proper fluid specification, or call a gm dealer.
You will need a transmission funnel, locate the transmission dip stick( usually red in colour ) and start off by putting two litres of oil in, now start the vehical and let the engine warm up and come down to a normal idle , clean off the dip stick and re install it until it is fully seated, now pull it back out and check to see where the level of fluid is at, there should be a few lines inscribed into the dipstick, full,low and add one litre. It must be, between the low and full marks, not any higher, keep adding fluid gradually and rechecking until desired level is reached, be patient as this takes a little while,

Could be that it needs to run, if you changed the oil filter also, you removed a full filter and put on an empty one. Could be that the often-present-on VW's plastic ring on the dip stick tube is broken, causing the dipstick to more fully insert. Check the specifications. Was the car parked differently? Uphile or downhill will cause a different reading, perhaps the before reading was inaccurate.

I do not have a manuel could someone tell me how much oil is required when changing a 2.2 engine.

Generally in the 5 to 6 litre (quarts) range. Put in 4 litres and check on dip stick. Add remainder half a litre at a time checking the dip each time. The volume of oil required to be added to go from "MIN" mark on the dip stick to "MAX" is just half a litre.
