SOURCE: can't locate reserve oil drain plug on 1994 Ford E350

It only has 1 oil pan which is call a dual resreve. One oil plug is a the bottom of the pan the other is at the front of the oil pan. Look at the front of the oil pan for the other drain plug. Make sure on how many quarts of oil it takes. ( I know 5.0 take 5 quarts including oil filter. But then again its a van double check)

Changed oil in my ford f350 year 1997 and now there is no oil pressure and knocking noise


Has there been zero oil pressure ever since you changed the oil?
Did you do it with motor warm? If so you lost the prime in your oil pump.Over fill the oil,couple quarts. start the engine,If you got oil pressure shut of engine and drain two quarts!

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.

How much oil do i put in my truck right after i do an oil change auto zone said 3 buckets of oil . but isnt that too much for an ford f250 94-95


The most these trucks take is six and a half U.S. quarts of oil.The safest way to know for sure is to drain all the oil out, remove and install a new oil filter, then install five quarts of your preferred oil.Start the vehicle up and let it run for thirty seconds, then turn it off.Pull the dipstick out and check the level with the engine not running, then top off the oil as necessary.Run it for five minutes to verify that there are no oil leaks, Then Happy Motoring!!! Hope I could help!!!

Oil capacity


You can easily determine capacity by changing the oil, with filter. After adding three quarts, start and run the engine, then carefully fill it 'till it is full. Wait at least one minute between each time you add more oil so it has time to drain into the pan. When it reads full you will know the exact amount needed. Write it down and know it forever!! Offhand I believe it's closer to four than three.

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.
