Whats the oil capacity on a 2003 chevrolet cavalier


Hello firemancop91: My name is Roger and I will answer your question. The proper amount of oil when changing the oil filter at the same time is 5 qts. I would put 4 1/2 qts. oil in and start the engine. Recheck after you start the engine. Fill as needed. The reason is you can not buy a 1/2 qt. of oil. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer you received as this way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

I have a 1999 chevy cavalier. what do i need to know/do to change the oil myself


you will need 5qts of 5w-30 oil and an oil filter. Go to an auto parts store and tell them the make model and year of your car and they will give you the right oil filter. Make sure to drain all the oil out then remove the oil filter. When putting the new oil filter in make sure to take some oil and put it on the sear of the oil filter. Screw the oil filter on hand tight and put the drain plug back in. Add oil to your motor, start with a little less then the owners manual says and start the car for a minute then turn off and check the oil level. Add and repeat till the oil level is correct.

How much more oil do I add when changing the filter as well?


Basically depending if the car is completly drained of oil then you would need the almost extra 1ltr of oil, the engine would retain a certain amount of oil in the internal parts, i'e hydrolic tappets etc, thus they say up to 1 ltr,
basically fill 3.8ltrs run the engine for a min, then check dipstick and top up as ness.

03m grand am p0300 multiple misfires, cats seem fine, changed fuel filter, dont know what to do next


this could be caused by a couple of things. Defective plug wires, coil packs cause this as does the Ignition control module. Also being overful on oil will also cause a multiple misfire on your particular vehicle and others. Hope I narrowed it down some for you.

Instructional guide oil change


Check your owners manual for the following info: Engine oil requirements, which would be what engine oil weight is right for your car. It will be #'s such as 5W 30. Use the weight recommended by chevy. The manual will also tell u how much u need. Go to an auto parts store, where u will need to purchase the following: 1. engine oil (they should be able to look up the weight requirement for your car, 2. oil filter, get a quality filter. An easy way to determine that is the weight of the filter. A good filter has a valve in it to prevent oil from draining out when the engine is off. This way when u start the car, u have oil pressure right away. You can also ask for advice on what they feel is a good filter.3. Filter wrench, to remove the oil filter. You can determine the correct size by seeing if it fits on the new filter. Ok, take it all home and: the car should be at operating temperature, either jack up the car or buy a set of ramps to drive it up on so u can get under the car. Make sure the car is supported on safety stands, never go under a car w/ just a jack holding it up. Block the rear wheels front and back so the car can't roll, put the emergency brake on, leave it in gear if it's a standard trans, in park for auto trans. Go under the car to remove the oil pan drain bolt. Be careful as surfaces and oil will be hot. Have a good size plastic pan, or something similar (u can also buy a oil drain container especially made for this) under the car. Remove the drain plug, letting the oil drain for 15 minutes or so, to let it drain completely. The reason u drain it w/ engine hot is to drain the oil quickly and completely, cold oil would take a long time to drain. Remove the oil filter w/ your wrench. I assume your filter is accessed from under the car. A few (not many) allow u to remove the filter from above in the engine compartment. With a clean rag, wipe off the area where the oil filter screws on. Make sure the old gasket isn't stuck on (rare, but it does happen). Also clean the area around the drain bolt. Replace the drain bolt, do not use brute force to tighten it, you want it on good and snug, not loose or so tight you ruin the threads. Now coat the gasket on the new oil filter w/ new clean engine oil, screw on hand tight. Go by the oil filter instructions on the box, usually u tighten til it just makes contact w/ the engine, then tighten one half to one full turn more.
Add the required amount of oil, start up and let it run for a few minutes, check for any leaks. Check your level several times a month so u know how often to add oil. U shouldn't wait 'til its down a quart to add oil, if its down half a quart, top it off. Your engine will reward u with a long life w/ this care (change every 3k miles). Don't overfill ever, as too much oil is bad for the engine, it causes the oil to foam, and u loose your lubrication. Many garages, town and city recycling centers, oil change shops will accept used oil to recycle. Whoa! seems a lot more complicated than it really is! Let me know if u have any questions. countrycurt0
