    Which oil are you looking for,engine or transmission?Engine can use either 10w30 or 5w30 depending on the temperature outside,5w30 in the sub zero temps. and 10w30 in the warmer seasons.Transmission oil will depend on whether it is an auto or a manual.

Fig. Fig. 1: Clutch release bearing - 1990 Colt hatchback and sedan w/ 1.6L engine, 1990 Colt Wagon w/1.8L engine, and 1990-93 Vista

0900c1528004723f.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 2: Clutch driven and drive discs - 1990-93 all models

0900c15280047240.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif

Fig. Fig. 3: Clutch release bearing - 1990 Colt Wagon w/1.5L engine, 1991-92 Colt hatchback and sedan w/4-speed and 1993 Colt hatchback and sedan w/1.8L engine

  1. Remove the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  2. Insert a pilot shaft or an old input shaft into the center of the clutch disc, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing in the crankshaft.
  3. With the pilot tool supporting the clutch disc, loosen the pressure plate bolts gradually and in a crisscross pattern.
  4. Remove the pressure plate and clutch disc.
  5. Clean the transmission and clutch housing. Clean the flywheel surface with a non-oil based solvent. Wash your hands before installing or handling the clutch assembly parts. Hold the clutch disc by the center hub only.

Before assembly, slide the clutch disc up and down on the transmission input shaft to check for any binding. Remove any rough spots with crocus cloth and then lightly coat the shaft with Lubriplate.
  1. To remove the throwout bearing assembly: Remove the return clip and take out the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing.
  2. To replace the throwout arm use a / 16 in. punch, knock out the throwout shaft spring pin and remove the shaft, springs, and the center lever.
  3. Do not immerse the throwout bearing in solvent; it is permanently lubricated. Blow and wipe it clean. Check the bearing for wear, deterioration, or burning. Replace the bearing if there is any question about its condition.
  4. Check the shafts, lever, and springs for wear and defects. Replace them if necessary.
  5. If you hadn't planned on replacing the clutch disc, examine it for the following before reusing it. Loose rivets. Burned facing. Oil or grease on the facing. Less than 0.3mm left between the rivet head and the top of the facing.
  6. Check the pressure plate and replace it if any of the following conditions exist: Scored or excessively worn. Bent or distorted diaphragm spring. Loose rivets.
  7. Insert the control lever into the clutch housing. Install the two return springs and the throwout shaft.
  8. Lock the shift lever to the shaft with the spring pin.
  9. Fill the shaft oil seal with multipurpose grease.
  10. Install the throwout bearing carrier and the bearing. Install the return clip.
  11. Grease the carrier groove and inner surface.
  12. Lightly grease the clutch disc splines.

The clutch is installed with the larger boss facing the transmission.
  1. Support the clutch disc and pressure plate with the pilot tool.
  2. Turn the pressure plate so that its balance mark aligns with the notch in the flywheel.
  3. Install the pressure plate-to-flywheel bolts head-tight. Using a torque wrench and, working in a crisscross pattern, tighten the bolts to 11-15 ft. lbs.
  4. Install the transmission or transaxle as outlined.
  5. Adjust the clutch as described in the following information.

I have a 1992 Dodge Colt 200 Hatchback 1.5L engine and it finally died. We changed the computer sensor and it ran sluggish after that. Could it be the map sensor, oxygen sensor or something else?

To know excalty what sensor is failed, need to scaned the PCM (computer); sometimes, Autozone or Autoshop with OBD scanner reader make this job for free. Just note this fault code number and send us for additional details.

Change timming belt. where marks have to be set? 92 dodge colt

I lost you, stupid computer. Anyhow there are 8 different engines for the dodge colt in the early 1990's I can only assume its the 1.4L, 1.5L or 2.4L. The 1.4L & 1.5L the timing marks are exactly the same. The Cam points to 3:00 marks ther. The crank points almost straight up, slightly to the right, mark on engine cover. The 2.4L has 3 marks, The crank has an alignment mark at approximately 10:00, the cam sprocket points straight up at 12:00 and the idler pulley (to the right of crank shaft pulley) points approximately 11:00. They should all have a notch or mark when aligned. The short secondary belt, the crankshaft should be in the same location 10:00 and the balance shaft (to the left) should be at 9:00. This goes on after of course. Rotate engine 2 full revolutions and recheck marks before starting engine.

92 colt 1.5l, Air pressure from oil cap

Hello, It sounds as if it may indeed be a broken ring. It is getting compression inside the motor called blow-by. My suggestion would be as long as it doesn't use oil or give any other problems, I would drive it.

in most cases the reason it's of two things. either your catalytic converter is plugged or you are losing fuel either from a plugged filter or a bad fuel pump. wouldn't be a bad idea to check the air filter also.
