2010 Peugeot 207 gearbox drain/filler/level bungs

The drain plug is situated on the final drive casing at the rear of the transmission (plug may need a square or hex drive wrench).

There is no level plug - the correct qty of oil must be measured and then poured in.
If Petrol 1.9 ltrs, diesel 2.0.

The oil is 75/80w.

What are the steps in changing the oil in a 1986 Lincoln Town Car

1) Purchase appropriate oil filter, sump drain bung washer and chosen engine oil.
2) Prepare an oil pan, sump bung wrench and oil filter removal tool (check access to oil filter to be sure that your tool is suitable.)
3) Run the engine until its warm to hot.
4) With the car jacked up and secured, remove engine oil filler cap and remove engine oil sump drain bung and allow oil to flow out into your drain pan. Keep an eye on your oil and make sure it doesn't overflow from your drain pan.

5) Refit sump bung with new washer and tighten. Do not over-tighten, and be especially careful when tightening into an alluminium sump.

6) Remove oil filter. Oil will flow out from this filter when removing, so your drain pan will need to be under the filter housing when removing.

7) Run a smear of clean engine oil around the filter rubber seal and refit new filter. Tighten hand tight only. Do NOT crank this filter super tight as you may damage the rubber seal and even the filter casing which can impede oil flow.

8) Refill engine with proper quantity of oil. If you cannot find how much oil your engine is supposed to take, then refill with the same quantity of oil which you drained out.

9) Restart the engine while checking the oil pressure warning light on the dash. The warning light may stay on for three or four seconds and then go out. If this light stays on for longer, then stop your engine and check for oil leaks at the filter body and sump drain bung.

10) Once the engine oil pressure warning light is off after starting, stop the engine and check the engine oil level (with vehicle on the flat and off any axle stands.)

11) Road test the vehicle, driving it for a mile or two before re-checking for oil leaks under the engine bay and engine oil quantity.

I have a 1997 chrysler sebring jx. gas nozzle keeps shutting off. how can I fix the problem myself?

Replace the gas filler next the vent tube is kinked, this blocks the air from venting as you fill it up, this causes pressure that shuts off the gas filter nozzle

Gas filling is difficult, pump keep clicking off

It is going to be a vent hose,that is crimped,or stopped up,most likely crimped,that runs to the tank,and up next to the filler hose,or it runs inside of the filler hose,please rate,if this was at all helpful,thank you.

Just checking.... it is a manual gearbox?

You may need a special tool for the drain plug and a 17mm allen key for the filler (some use the special drain tool for the filler as well)

The drain plug is located under the diff housing.

The filler plug is located on the left (nearside) off the gearbox (look to the left of the hole and you can see the 17mm hex filler bung).

Check you can undo the filler bung, then drain the gearbox oil.

Refit drain bung and fill gearbox through filler/level ********* until gearbox oil is up to the level of the filler bung.

Refit, test drive, check for leaks and retest level again when cold.

Problem filling gas tank

Sounds like you need a new filler neck. There is a vent, and it is part of the filler neck. Or there could be a bad valve at the bottom of the neck.

Help blazer won't take gas...

Hi: Canister you thinking about is located behind L rear bumper end cover. Won't have anything to do with Blazer not taking gas though. If you look behind the filler on the rubber filler pipe you should see a small rubber line with a black breather on top of it, that is what lets air out of your gas tank when filling vehicle, check it to see if plugged or damaged. Hope this helps. Please rate suggestion... ty
