Qhen you quiz a good auto parts store salesman all of these are in his computer system including how much. Break fluild is marked on the filler cap as the moyor oil is on the filler cap trans oil type is on the dipstick near the level line and all brands are acceptanle provided they have 97 or nrwer ratings on the bottle. In general the more the correct whieght of oil costs the better it is but the cheapest oils changed grgularly and often is better than hi dollar.

Oil leak on back driver side motor in a 1994 dodge caravan


Place a piece of white paper/cardboard on the ground below where the leak is coming from soon after the engine is turned off. This should help you locate where exactly the oil is dripping from, and should help identify what is leaking. If the oil is black/brown/gold, it's probably engine oil. If it's reddish/brown, it's probably transmission fluid. If it's clear, it may be brake fluid or power steering fluid (from the rack/pinion). Check the fluid levels for whatever you determine it may be. If it's engine oil, you may have leaking valve cover gaskets or a leaking rear seal on the engine. If it's transmission fluid, you may have bad transmission cooler lines or leaking from axle seals. Check the master cylinder and brake lines if it's brake fluid, and check the rack/pinion if it's power steering fluid.

Im a single mom and dont have a owners manual for my voyager, that was given to me. i want to make sure im putting the right fluids in. can you help? it doesnt tell me on the dipsticks like some...


Engine oil for cold climates 5w-30. Warmer climates 10w-30. Any Auto-zone parts store person at the counter would be more than helpful choosing the correct fluids for your vehicle.

Leaking oil


Your car has several different types of oils or fluids (motor oil, transmission oil, power steering fluid/oil, brake fluid, and differential oil - if applicable). . Before you can determine how to fix your problem, you need to determine exactly what you problem is, meaning you need to figure out what fluid is leaking.

Good Luck!

Oil specifications


The motor oil from the factory is motocraft synthetic blend 5w-30 for normal conditions and motocraft synthetic blend 5w-20 for cold environments. But any synthetic blend or full synthetic of equal weight will do just fine and you will require 5 quarts of oil. DO NOT USE A THICKER WEIGHT OIL, OIL ADDITIVES OR NON SYNTHETIC. Thicker oil like 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-50 will not be thin enough to lubericate the tighter clearences of the motor and coventional oil breaks down faster than a synthetic blend or synthetic. And be sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles
