You could have your engine professionally "steam-cleaned" . The oil will tend to deteriorate rubber parts, hoses, vacuum lines, etc. Makes it much nicer to work on also.

That;s all, no other problems except to clean any mess caused by the oil spiting out.

How do i open the hood on a 2002 honda accord coupe? cable is broken.

I go up from under the car, it helps if it is on a lift. If not, get high up on ramps, or jack stands. Remove the splash shield and reach up with a long, hooked tool. You can see the latch, and trip the release with the tool. Hope this helps. Remember to have the car safely lifted up with at least 2 types of support, in case 1 fails.

Check Engine Light - 2005 Honda Accord Coupe

The first thing to ask is this, how does the car run? Does it still run the same as it always did, or is something different? The next thing to do is to get the car scanned to determine what code is stored in the computer that is turning on the check engine light. I certainly understand being broke, so most larger auto parts stores will scan the light for you for free. They wont fix it or give much in the way of advise, but they will at least tell you what code or codes are stored. Once you know what the code (s) are, then you can determine what the next step should be.

Lift your Hyundai Santa Fe using a jack and then place the car on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands, drive the car onto a set of wheel ramps.
Pop the hood and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. The dipstick is near the front engine compartment with the oil filler nearby.
Gather an oil drip pan, a 17-mm wrench, oil filter wrench, cleaning cloths and a new oil filter. Slide under your Santa Fe.

Change the Oil
  • Locate the oil filter and oil drain plug underneath the car. The drain plug is on the bottom of the oil pan, and the filter is to the side of the oil pan.
  • Remove the oil drain plug using the 17mm wrench. Pull the plug out quickly and let the oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes. Check the gaskets and threads for damage. Replace these components, if necessary.
  • Take off the oil filter using an oil filter wrench. Dump the old oil into the oil drip pan and put on the new oil filter. Tighten the oil filter by hand, and then replace the oil drain plug using the wrench. Clean off the excess oil.
  • Go under the hood and add oil. Turn on the engine and check the oil pressure gauge to make sure it rises. Let your Santa Fe run for a minute.
  • Lower your Hyundai Santa Fe and turn off the engine. Take an oil reading on the dipstick. If the oil level isn't at full, add a bit more oil.
