1992 Plymouth Voyager valve adjustment


Your car has hydraulic valves, which means they are not adjustable.
If they are clattering, you may need to change the oil (If it is dirty) and run some cleaner through the motor.
What I mean is, add the cleaner to the fresh oil and filter you put in the motor.
50 years ago, we used to add a quart of automatic transmission fluid to the oil to clean the motor.
Automatic transmission fluid is basically colored detergent.
We would then drain the oil and transmission fluid when it got dirty, like maybe 500 or 1000 miles.
You do not want to put too much oil in the motor, so you would substitute the tranny fluid for the last quart of oil.
Be blessed.

It is normal to use over a quart of oil before oil change


My 1993 voyager is like that. It may burn some , it definitely leaks some , and it could be just sending some through the PCV valve. Oil leaks and burning oil causes pollution . If you can fix it with a new seal or a valve cover gasket it is easier than constantly checking your oil. Temperature, trailering, speed, outdoor temperature, and engine RPM all can be factors if you are losing oil. If your engine is a quart down, the engine oil consumption rate doubles or triples. In other words the lower the oil level the faster it disappears. High mile cars will drive for years as long as you add oil when it is needed (keep the oil level between the marks). Fix any obvious leaks. Then determine your oil change interval (3000 miles, 4000 miles, 5000 miles). I change between 4000 and 5000 miles. If i am a quart low at 3500 I add a quart. If I am a quart low at 4500 miles I just change the oil in the car. A good practice is to carry a quart of oil in your vehicle just in case you need it. It is far cheaper to add a quart when needed than to go to the dealer once to maybe fix a problem that they may not be able to find or fix. Older engines (even some newer ones) just use oil , especially in hotter climates. Fix the obvious and carry a quart.

How much motor oil do i need for my ford f350 how many gal


if it is a gas engine it should use 5 quarts, unless it has a heavy duty oil cooling system, then it may need up to seven quarts. Fill the motor with the first five quarts, the check the oil level with the oil dipstick. If its still low add one half of a quart at a time while checking level each time you add a half quar untill it show full on the oil dipstick..

How many quarts of oil does a Corolla Dx hold at oil change?


4 quarts, 5 with filter change according to the book. Rule of thumb, buy 5 and once you drain and replace the filter, start by putting 3 and a half quarts in and check the level. If it's between the marks start the motor and run for 5 minutes then let it sit for 5 minutes and recheck the level. Top off half a quart at a time till you get the oil level between the full and add marks.

How many quarts of oil do it take when changing oil


pretty sure that takes 7. Start with 5 then start the motor for like 15 seconds and shut it off. Recheck oil level and add more if needed.

How do you drain the oil if you put the wrong oil in?


First off, When you say the wrong oil in, do you mean a quart of the wrong weight of oil such as 5w30 and the vehicle calls for 10W30? or do you mean you used synthetic oil mixed in conventional oil. If you added one can or less of the wrong weight oil, then I probably wouldn't worry about it until your next oil change. If you added synthetic oil into conventional oil then do the following.

You need to get under the car and look for the oil pan which should be directly below your motor. Put a large container that would hold at least 8 quarts of oil under the oil pan and use a wrench and remove the drain plug allowing all of the oil to drain into the pan. Once all drained, you might as well change the oil filter and add fresh oil to your vehicle. If you have never done it before, it is fairly simple in the regal but buy the oil filter so you know what your looking for. I believe the filter is on the front of your motor. Make sure you put a ring of oil on the seal of the new filter before installing and then spin it clockwise to put it on. Lastly re-insert the drain plug and fill the motor with 4 quarts of oil(expecting to add total of 5 quarts). Start the car for about 30 seconds and shut it off and check the oil level. if low add the 5th quart. Check under the car for any oil leaks. Not a hard fix. Good luck.

Engine rattle noise with oil change light on


Your oil level is low. Wait until the motor is cold and check your oil level. You could also check your level after a drive just shut the motor down and wait 20 minutes for the oil to seep back down out of the block. Pull the dipstick, whipe it clean and did it in again and see what your reading is. If it is between Min and Max towards the middle of both it is fine. If It is all the way up by Max you may have too much, but I bet your oil level is low, I bet when you check it, it will be down near the min mark. If thats the case, find out what type of oil your car uses and buy one quart of oil and add some of it to your motor. I recommend you add about a quarter of the bottle, then stop check the dip stick if still low add a little more. If the level is good then stop. It is critical not to add too much oil. When cars get older they tend to run hot and burn oil. My van does the same thing, I can change the oil and add 5 quarts and about 3 weeks to a month later I have to add a little more and I usually can hear when i need to add some oil because I get a rattle/ping and the idle just doesnt sound right, but once I add the little bit of oil everything is all good.

3.5 or 5 quarts of oil? How do I know for sure?


Add 3 quarts, then start checking the dip stick. Add extra until you're within range.
