How to change oil


How to change your oil: * Make sure that the car is parked on level ground and the engine is shut off * Pop open the hood, you will see the metal loop sticking out of the engine block. This dipstick is usually in red for easy recognition. * Have a thick paper towel in your hand and pull out the dipstick with the other, wipe the end of the dipstick until there is no oil left on the dipstick * Insert the dipstick back in and wait for a few seconds. Remove the dipstick once again and look at the end of the dipstick. CHECK and MAKE SURE that the oil level is between the "Low" and the "High" mark. If the oil is at the low mark, it generally take 1 quart of oil to get it up to "High". * Also check the quality of the engine oil. If it is grainy or has little nuggets or looks dirty, it's time to change your oil. * Open the drain plug that is located beneath the engine and make sure your pan is big enough to collect all the oil that drains out. * Also install a new oil filter (From $4). * After draining the oil, tighten the drain plug in securely. IMPORTANT! Do not over tighten the drain plug as it will strip the oil pan and this could cost about $500-$800 in repair at the BMW dealership. Be Careful! * Fill up with the recommended quarts of oil. * Check the dipstick and make sure that the oil level is between the low and high point. * Check your oil level and quality of the oil every week, or bi-weekly when in low usage. Also do not forget to check for oil leaks, a simple glance on the garage floor will do the trick. * For conservatives, remember to change your oil every 3000 miles or 6000 miles if you use synthetic oil. It is a cheap but good prevention against engine damage. Remember the mileage between oil change also depends on your driving condition. * Reset your Oil change reminder on your car. That's it, you made it!

Changing rear end oil


Most rear differentials, it's a drain and refill operation.

SOME differentials have a drain plug, but others have ONLY a fill plug.

If yours doesn't have a drain plug, then you need to suck the old fluid out, with suction/transfer pump:

http://www.harborfreight.com/gear-oil-and-fluid-pump-61746.html

You can also use this to refill with the new fluid.

Most rear ends are filled to the bottom of the fill plug hole.
If you overfill, just let it overflow/drain until it stops dripping.

Now, different differentials require different fluids, so check what you need.
It might be in the owner's manual.

I need to find the oil drain plug on a 92 ford explorer eddie bauer.


Hello, it on the side or bottom of the oil pan. The oil pan is the bottom end of the engine. This is were the oil is stored and were the oil pick up the oil for lubrication of the engine. It is a 5/8" plug with a copper or fiber washer. If you are changing the oil make sure that drain plug has it copper or fiber was on it. If not, the plug will leak little droplets. GB...stewbison

How many fluid drain plugs on hyundai elentra 1998? 1 for oil 1 for trany and 1 more


You should have a drain plug on the Oil Pan for oil, the tranny requires you to pull the pan to drain the fluid, on on the radiator in order to flush the radiator and one on the rear end in order to check the rear end gear oil level. That is all.

How to change engine oil?


You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.

You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.

Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill
