The seal in not good, tighten or loosen it and check the sealing surfaces. Clean it and put it back on.

My mechanic bored a hole in my rx300 SUV year 2000 engine block trying to fix my a/c compressor, what can i do?


I successfully sealed a leak on a block once with a special epoxy; but that was luck. you will need to replace the block, probably. your mechanic knows this and doesn't want to buy you one.

Pt cruiser is using a quart of oil every 100 miles


Should be a leaking oil pressure switch.
First, check to oil filter, area to see if the oil is obviously coming out around the filter. Filter and area around it should be dry,.
There has been rare instance of the "o-ring" on the top of the oil filter sticking to the engine when the filter was changed, and the new oil filter then won't seal because there are now 2 gaskets between the filter and the engine block.
Check the engine drain plug. Is it loose or stripped? That area should also be clean and dry.
The valve cover gasket should be clean and dry all the way around.
Most common cause for that much oil use is the oil pressure switch, should be leaking with the motor running.

How to do a oil change


Pull the drain plug, change the oil filter, replace the drain plug. Add oil until the dipstick reads full. Start the engine and make sure the oil light goes out. Check for leaks around the oil filter with the car running. Recheck the oil level, add as necessary. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

How often do you change the motor oil? The motor oil filter? The automatic transmission oil and filter? What type of motor oil should be used?


Oil change recommended is every 3,000miles / 5000km for local short running around. If you clock up the miles quickly then extend the oil changes to 6,000miles /10,000km
Oil filter is every second oil change.
Use reputable multi grade oil 15W/40 or similar, Do not use standard SAE 30 single grade oil. You do not need to use synthetic / semi-synthetic oils either.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL PAN ON F150


Hi. Here's the procedure on how to change the oil pan.

Things You'll Need:
Drain pan
Crescent wrench
New oil filter
Oil filter wrench
Socket wrench
Socket set
Razor knife
Putty knife
New oil pan
Oil pan gasket
6 qt. of oil
Clean towel

    Draining the Oil
  1. 1 Locate the oil pan directly underneath the engine. The oil pan will be held on to the bottom of the motor by 16 to 18 bolts. The drain plug is at the bottom of the pan.
  2. 2 Loosen the drain plug with a crescent wrench. Allow all the oil to drain in to the pan. Tighten the drain plug when the oil is through draining.
  3. 3 Unscrew the oil filter with an oil filter wrench. Place the oil filter with the waste oil.
  4. 4 Rub new motor oil around the gasket of the new oil filter. Pour 1 qt. of oil in to the filter.
  5. 5 Screw the filter to the filter housing with your hands. Do not wrench-tighten as this will strip the threads and make removal of the filter difficult.
  6. Replacing the Oil Pan
  7. 1 Locate all the bolts holding the oil pan in place. There will be 16 to 18 bolts.
  8. 2 Unscrew all the bolts with a socket wrench. Lower the pan to the ground. If the pan is stubborn, tap it with a rubber mallet to loosen the seal from the gasket.
  9. 3 Scrape clean all the gasket material around the bottom surface of the motor. This will ensure a tight seal with the new oil pan.
  10. 4 Place the new gasket around the new oil pan. Raise the oil pan to the motor and screw in all the bolts. Do not tighten the bolts until all are threaded to the bottom of the motor.
  11. 5 Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench. Ensure that all the bolts are tight.
  12. Adding the New Motor Oil
  13. 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil filler cap on top of the crankcase. Pull the engine oil dipstick from the tube. Wipe the dipstick clean with a fresh towel.
  14. 2 Pour in 5 qt. of oil in to the engine crank case. Insert the dipstick back in to the tube and pull it back out. Check the oil level against the markings on the dipstick. Fill at 1/2 qt. intervals until the dipstick indicates "Full."
  15. 3 Start the truck and allow it to run for five minutes. Allow the truck to sit for an additional five minutes to allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan.
  16. 4 Check the oil level again. Fill if necessary, but do not overfill.

Change the oil filter of a daihatsu copen


unless there is something unusual about it... the filter unscrews and you install a new one. you should put a drop of oil on your finger and rub it around the filter gasket before you screw it back on the motor. often you will need an oil filter wrench, abit of a misnomer as it is basically a band that goes around the oil filter with a handle. the newer style is a large socket piece that fits over the end of the oil filter and you turn with a rachet.

Oil Lick


when the car is running do you have blue smoke from the exhaust? :If so then the piston rings are fried. If not then do you have oil on the motor around the valve covers? If so then the valve cover gaskets needs replacement.
