They don't usually torque the drain plug, it is not subject to vibrations like a Harley. Just tight with the wrench will do it. Oil filters are a toss up, everybody says something else, How do they know,? If you change your oil and filter regularly, you shouldn't have to worry about it. Oil capacity, is potentially 5 qts, although some of these small engines take only 4. I would put in 4, run the engine to fill the filter and check it. If it is 1 qt low, you know it takes 5. And your engine should do fine with 10w 40. Hope this helps.

  • Lubricate the rubber seal with clean oil and install the new filter. Tighten to 13 foot-pound torque.
  • Remove drain plug in the oil pan and drain the oil. Catch the oil in the drain pan. After draining the oil install and tighten the drain plug to 18 foot-pound torque.
  • Fill engine with 5W-30 weight oil. The 4.4 V8 takes 8 quarts; the 4.0 V6 takes 6 quarts. Start engine and check for leaks.

Is it possible for me to change the engine oil as im a new timer on these situations thank you.


"anything is possible"



depending on your vehicle's year make model and engine size, the drain plug and oil filter may or may not be hard to get to



today's era of youtube videos and car owners forums makes it easier than before



look it up to see if it's easy to get your oil filter and drain plug for your car/ truck



SAFETY first! use JACK STANDS & don't rely on the jacks by themselves to hold your vehicle up ~ i've known a neighbor and a co-worker who almost got crushed to death



have backup tools to remove your oil filter in case the previous person didn't lube the o-ring and/or over tighten the filter. i have a strap wrench or correct end-cap oil wrench for my vehicles



depending on how the oil filter is mounted, i usually add some oil right into the filter to get it pre-charged while i also lube that rubber seal/o-ring on the filter....



some say to use NEW oil drain plug gaskets before you torque it down (to specs) each plug has a torque spec; but i got away with re-using it a few times before i replace the gasket.



I spin the drain plug on by hand first to avoid cross-threading ~ then use torque wrench. you don't want this plug to loosen while you're driving on the highway or you don't want to overtighten it and have the threads on the oil pan to strip on you...



do not overfill your vehicle's oil capacity ~ the crankshaft will whip it up to foam, causing your engine bearings to starve for oil



so look up the torque spec for your drain plug, and oil capacity

How much trans fluid needed after filter change on 1997 dodge caravan


My 1997 Caravan manual states that the trans fluid capacity is 8.5 quarts. However, in the transmission oil change section, it says to drop the pan, drain the oil, replace the filter and add 4 quarts of new fluid. This tells me that the torque converter is not draining so you are in fact, only changing "half" of the transmission fluid.

I have a 1997 porche 911 cab, I have never changed the oil and filter myself. Is it hard and how do you do it Thanks


Gravity does all the hard work. If you can figure out how to work a wrench, you can change your own oil. I'd pickup a repair manual, it will have the basics that tell you how to do a tune up/oil change etc.

You should also google Porsche groups, I'm sure there are a lot of greasemonkeys hanging out there who love to train noobies.

Its not difficult, but you need to make sure you have the right filter, and know where the drain plug is, before you get started.

Basically you drive the car a bit to get the oil warm, then you park it and set the brake. Put a drain pan under the oil pan near the drain plug. Unscrew the drain plug, wear rubber gloves, the oil will be hot, let the oil drain into the pan, now fish around in the pan for the drain plug that you dropped into the hot oil cause the oil was burning your fingers, when you find the drain plug, clean it off with a paper towel and open a beer. Now you need to remove the old oil filter, they usually either unscrew or are in a cannister, that service manual I told you to buy will tell you where it is and how to remove it. now open another beer, and put the clean filter in wherever the old filter came out of. Best to order a pizza now or you'll be drunk by the time you get this job done.

Okay clean filter is on, time to put the drain plug back in the oil pan, if its an aluminum pan, you probably should use a torque wrench to make sure you don't overtighten it and strip the threads, otherwise just put a new lock washer/crush washer on the plug (it should come with the filter)
Now add some quarts of your favorite oil after opening one more beer. That manual you bought will tell you exactly how many quarts of oil your engine will hold.

After its all together, check the dispstick to make sure you have enough oil in your car, then start the engine and move the car, look underneath for oil leaks, thats a sign that the drain plug isn't tight enough.

Take it for a test drive as soon as you sober up from all the beer. Easy peasy.
