If it's on the engine that's the nut,probably a 22mm nut.

Nissan oil capacity QD32


Cut the side out of a 10 litre oil container to catch the used oil.
Use a plastic shopping bag around the filter to catch most of the oil when you maneouvre the filter out of the engine compartment. About 6 liters new oil, diesel 15w40 dino oil is what I use to refill both sump and oil filter, about 5.3 in sump, the rest in the filter. Run engine and then recheck on dipstick after engine has been stopped for 5 minutes to allow drain back to sump.great thing is that you don't have to jack up the vehicle to get under it just to do the oil, but it makes it easier to do the filter if you remove the left front wheel and go through the rubber side curtains between the wheel well and the engine bay to get to the filter, especially if the engine is hot.

How does one remove the sump from the Rocam engine of a 2005 Ford Bantam pickup?


    1.Loosen the wheel nuts on both front wheels
    2.Raise the front of the vehicle, both sides
    3.Removes the front wheels
    4.Remove the both side ball joint bolts and lift the suspension of the ball joint using a steel bar or similar,
    5.Remove both inner cv joints from the vehicle
    6.Remove the battery and the plastic battery housing;
    7.Remove the air intake pipe
    8.Drain the oil from the sump
    9.Remove the resonator from the gearbox, hydraulic hose from the gearbox, reverse gear switch, speedo cable.
    10.Remove the two bell housing bolts on the top (next to the cylinder head). Take one bolt to a local tools and hardware and source the exact thread bolt but buy bolts that are approx 5/6cm longer - buy 5 bolts to be safe. Replace the two bolts removed with the longer ones.
    11.Remove the starter motor and power cables;
    12.Remove the bolt above the starter motor and insert a long bolt here
    13.Next remove all bolts mounting the sump,
    14.At the back of the engine (side where the manifold is) remove all bolts and insert one long bolt. Note none of the long bolts should be mounted into the oil pan (sump).
    15.Use a support bar to support the engine and gearbox assembly (I made one using a steel pipe and bolted this onto the engine strut bolts;
    16.Using a 17 socket and long extension remove the gearbox mounting (3 nuts), Lower the gearbox side of the engine so that the mounting bolts clear the engine mounting;
    17.Insert a large screw driver or similar between the engine and gearbox assembly and separate them (note most gearbox will separate itself);
    18.You will notice a +/- 4 to 5 cm space between but the gearbox and engine is still joined together by the longer bolts.
    19.Using a long 8mm "t" socket as shown below, insert this between the fly wheel and onto the sump bolt (x2) and remove them. Using a normal 8mm spanner / socket remove all other sump bolts. The sump can now be removed from the vehicle.
    20.[Information for using a 8mm special tool: note that the Gedore 8mm or similar will not work between the fly wheel and sump]. I had bought a cheap small 8mm socket {it comes 8mm, 10mm and 12mm in a three way small socket - cost about R12} I cut off the 8mm from this and joined a long steel rod to it and also a handle which made is a "special" T socket spanner, similar to the image below.
    21.Install in reverse order as described above.

Dropped a 8mm nut into intake manifold took manifold back off cant see the nut drained oil still dont see it next thinking of takeing off oil pan what do you suggest


if you dropped this nut into the inlet manifold then i would suggest you look in the head ports ,if its not their then it could have gone down into the sump and if it has then dont worry about it ,so long as its not stuck in the manifold on some oily substance then its ok ok behind a valve stem your safe it will lay in the sump and not cause any damage ,some vehicles have a magnetic sump plug so it will stick to this eventually .

Where is the oil filter and oil pan?


the oil filter lookes like a bean can (slightly thicker)on the side of the engine block.and the oil pan is also called the sump,its on the bottom of the engine (you get to it from under the car)and the plug is normally on the bottom most part of the sump to allow it to drain all the oil from it.....some cars you have to take off the splash guard under the engine to get to the underside of the engine.

Need step by step guide on how to service a toyota yaris


Firstly look at the part numbers of the items you want to replace, oil filter, spark plugs, if you want to put new ones in, air filter and if the car has quite a high mileage, the fuel filter. The fuel filter is under the car and looks like an alumimium cylinder. If you go to a quality spares shop they can sell you reputable parts, often for a lot less than Toyota original parts. Ask them to set the gaps on the plugs and buy a gallon of the type of oil that is specified in your handbook for your type of climate. You will also need a sump plug washer.

The first thing to do would be to remove the air filter from the cleaner. This is usually held together with clips and/or screws. Clean out the inside of the housing and place the new filter in the same position as the old one. Clip and screw everything back together and that job is done.

Blow around the spark plug holes, number each spark plug lead from 1 (front of engine) to 4 (back of engine). Remove the plug leads and the unscrew the plugs. Replace with the new plugs being careful not to overtighten them and replace the plug leads onto the correct plugs.
Check your engine coolant level and top up if necessary.
Start the car and get it to normal temperature. Switch off engine. Chock the wheels, put the car in park or gear and handbrake on. Jack up the drivers side giving you enough space to slide a bucket under the engine. DO NOT GET UNDER THE CAR. Wipe around the sump plug and SLOWLY undo it. The plug is at the bottom of the sump at the lowest part of the engine. THE OIL ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PLUG IS HOT SO TAKE CARE. Let the oil drain. Whilst this is happening, wipe around the filter base and unscrew the filter. This will also be hot and oil will spill so make sure that the bucket can also catch the spillage. Wipe away any excess oil and make sure that the rubber seal has not been left on the engine. It is important to remove it. Place a smear of new engine oil on the new filter rubber seal and screw the filter in place. A good hand tightening is enough. By now all the oil will be out of the engine and you can replace the sump plug washer and screw the sump plug back into the sump making sure it is tight. Wipe away any loose oil. Remove the oil filler cap and pour about half the oil into the engine. let it settle for a minute and remove the dip stick, clean it off, and dip it again. You should see the oil level near the bottom of the dip stick. Add another pint and check again. Keep going until you reach the full mark. Replace the oil cap and dip stick and start the engine. Run it for a few minutes and check the filter and sump plug to make sure they are not leaking. Switch off, let the oil settle and check the level again. It will go down because the filter is now full. Top up and you are done. Look around the engine bay to make sure nothing is amiss. If the car has done about 20 000 remove the wheels and check the brakes have enough lining. Check the tyres for tread, cuts and so on. Make sure all your lights are working. Now you are pretty much good to go.

I need to change the oil but i dont know where the sump is and i dont have a manual for the car


The sump is inside the oil pan and irrelevant to your need. The oil pan has a drain plug and is at the lowest part, usually on the side, so if you can get under the engine and look up at the usually flat bottom, there will be what may look like a bolt head on the side of the pan at the lower edge. Unscrew that and the oil will come out, so have a pan under it.
