You are looking for a cylindrical canister. changing the oil - 19ef8a1.jpg

It may be up towards the front of the engine and easier to access from underneath. Once you find it you want to get a good grip on it and spin it until you can get at least a half turn out of it.

Now remove your filler cap found on the top of your engine.

At the lowest part of your Engine oil pan you will find a plug. It will most likely be a 15mm. Get your drain pan ready and remove that plug. Let it drip for a few minutes. Now remove your oil filter and let it drain into your drain pan.

Get out your new filter and lightly lubricate the rubber ring on it with a coat of clean oil. Screw it onto the engine and hand tighten it.

Replace your oil pan plug. Make it nice and snug, be sure not to wrench down on it too much, it is easy to strip out a drain plug. You really don't want to turn an oil change into an oil pan and gasket replacement. That would ****.

Check your operators manual for the correct type of oil (most likely 5w20) your filler cap should also have that information on it. Put about 4.5 Quarts of oil into it and check your oil. You will notice there is a Low and High line on your dip stick. Most likely there will be hash marks. This is a range. If your oil level is between the bottom and the top of your dipstick hash marks, then your oil level is good. Be sure not to over or under fill your engine with oil. It will result in serious damage.

I have a 07 Suzuki Swift auto that is over reving when it changes from 1st to 2nd ! the oil is still pink and clean ! Any thoughts pls.

we dont have swifts here, what engine is there? of the 5 engines/ (transmission are matched to engines)
pink =ATF,
sure, that is called FLARE, (or false neutrals)
the transaxle (A/T) is needing service.
at the least a new filter, service inside?
if the filter packs the line pressure test fails, so does trans.
that slip , also burns up the clutch packs. in most cases. (inside)

My oil light has started to intermitantly come on in my 05 Suzuki Swift 1.3. I'm assuming I need to add some engine oil but I don't know which one to buy. Please advise.

Yes, this would be a good indication of low oil. You should try to stick with the same brand and viscosity of oil every oil change. If your car has over 75,000 miles I recommend a High Mileage oil of your choice. Which ever oil you choose I would suggest a 5W30 viscosity. Hope this helps.
