The sump has two levels its on the bottom, back, corner.do not forget to replace the washer with a new one.oil is 10/40 semi.and it helps(a lot)if you use a flushing oil first.

    Response most appreciated. I assume it was the sump plug I found, bottom, bak, on the side; i've been accustomed to plug on the bottom. (also with help of a youtube video), but the 13mm plug is frozen, no amount of pressure or banging would loosen it. Not sure of next step. Try to borrow a breaker bar and socket I guess!

Where is the oil drain plug ford escort flight 2001


Jack up the front end of the car and go right underneath it, about dead center. Find the oil pan. Plug is located on back side, facing the tail end of the car. I believe it's a 15mm fitting.

How to change the oil on a 1999 ford expedition


oil filter located inside of front drivers side fender. lay down and look up you will see the filter in the front of the fender. oil drain plug located on the back of the black oil pan I think its a 15mm bolt unbolt let drain. When done draining put it back in the oil pan. next pull oil filter off turn counter clockwise and put new filter back on then fill with 6quarts of oil. I think its 5w-30 but you can use 10w-30 won't hurt it.

How do i change the oil?


jack the car and support it on jackstands. put a can or oil catcher under the oil drain plug then loosen but do not remove the plug. slowly start to remove the plug letting oil drain out . when all the oil is drained remove the filter using a filter wrench available at most auto stores for under $10. hand tighten the new filter acoring to the instructions on the filter then replace the drain plug. Now add up to the specified litres of oil and check under the car/truck for leaks around the drainplug and filter. now you are done

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

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)
