Under your car in the front should be the oil pan. It has a bolt on one of it's sides. Loosen this bolt and take it out. Don't forget to put something under your car to catch the old oil. Also, change the oil filter. You should see the oil filter while you are under your car. Before putting in new oil and filter, make sure you put the bolt back in the oil pan. Put a little new oil into the new filter and wipe some oil with your finger around the oil filter rubber gasket. Make sure you don't overfill with oil !

Oil pan

Hi Gerti ,
It is very easy , First lift the vehicle through jack or hydraulic lift and drain the engine oil in a pan and arrange a new engine oil filter and oil as it is better to replace( u can use the same if it is not very old). U can drain the oil by removing the drain plug ( keep it for around 1 hour so that oil from the gallerias also drain out).
After 1 hour remove the oil pan by removing all the bolts from engine and replace with the new one.
Top up the engine oil by removing the dip stick and your car must be fine.

Leaking oil from reart diff

Where is it leaking from? Around the edges of the cover?
You may need to make a new gasket for it.
Drain oil by remove lower bolts and slightly prying on cover so fluid starts draining.
Slowly make your way up to the top bolts until it's completely empty.
Remove cover, clean old gasket off housing and cover.
Attain gasket maker from any auto store, and spread a even amount around edge of housing, where the cover and housing touch..
Replace cover, fill with oil, and see if this stops the leaking. If not, you may have just rusted out the cover, after years of wear and rust (depending on the year of the vehicle) and may need to simply replace the cover.

Only major problem is it would be leaking from the side or where the drive shaft enters the housing, which would require new seals, and a bit more work!

I hope this helps!

Where do you add oil?


  1. Jack up the car in the front and place on jackstands or place the vehicle on a service lift and raise the vehicle.
  2. Remove the plastic undertray covering the bottom of the motor. There are usually five or six screws that should drop away with just a quarter turn from a screwdriver.
  3. Once you have removed the undertray locate the oil drain plug. This is basically a large bolt head that simply sits in the oil pan with nothing else attached. it sits in the pan sideways at the bottom of the pan on the passenger side. Beware of the transmission oil drain! It is not a bolt head, the drive of the transmission plug is in the shape of a star. Do not open this plug. Make sure it's a regular hexagonal bolt. You may want to use a torque wrench to take this off and to reinstall it.
  4. Place a tub or some sort of oil drain receptacle beneath the oil plug then remove the oil plug. Allow several minutes for the oil to drain completely.
  5. Remove the oil filter. You will need a filter wrench to break the old one free. Take care to keep the filter upright when you remove it as it is full of old oil. Drain the filter of oil in the same pan you used to drain the engine.
  6. Install the new oil filter. Use your finger and wet the rubber gasket on the new filter with the old oil that you drained. You only need a little bit. Then install the new filter where the old one is. Install with your hands and make sure the filter threads in straight. You should install the new filter at "hand tight" and if you like you can give it a slight tug with the filter wrench afterwards. DO NOT OVERTORQUE THE FILTER.
  7. Once the oil has drained, replace the oil plug (Audi recommends replacing this drain plug every oil change... its up to you). Be sure to torque the plug to specifications. DO NOT OVERTORQUE THE DRAIN PLUG.
  8. Replace the undertray and remove the drain tub and tools from underneath the car. Remove the jackstands and lower the car back on the ground. Pour new oil into the oilcap and start the car. Let it run for a minute then check your oil level again. Once you have your oil level adjusted you're all set. Some people like to fill the oil filter halfway with new oil before installing it. That is up to you.

Keep in mind, do not overfill the oil... if you do the excess oil can cause damage to your catalytic converter.

Hope this helped you solve the problem.

Take care and good luck

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2

Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.
