Hello
Yes they do.Oil lubricates metal and steel engine parts and also cools these parts.Since we use internal combustion,or controlled explosions we create alot of heat plus friction.Without oil the engine would stop or get so hot the engine would explode.

OIl is also used in the transmission and the drive axels of cars and trucks.How much oil your car or truck needs and when to change it can be found in your owners manual.

How do i change my oil


Drain old oil, replace filter, fill with new oil.
First find out how much oil your car holds, and what viscosity (you'll see on any new bottle of oil, 10w-30, 5w-30, 0w-20, etc.) Then find out what filter you need. Honestly walmart is your best bet. They will tell you which model your car needs. Get your car on a sloped surface, (you can buy plastic ramps cheap specially for this) and remove the plug from the oil pan Located toward the front of the car directly under the dashboard. You can google pics of an oil pan. Drain the used oil, find your old filter, remove it, replace, put the plug back in and fill it with however much yoyr engine needs. Most cars take 3 to 5 quarts. Good luck

I own a 2003 mazda tribute. The oil light stays on but the car does not need oil


Usually the oil warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, or the sending unit has failed.

Blinking oil light


That means you need more oil, your sensor is saying that the car is over a pint of oil low. I would do an oil change to see if the problem it a loose oil pan bolt, or heat outside causing car to burn more oil, or oil filter is bad and needs to be replaced to provide better oil flow.

How to change your oil


umm if you have to ask you probably shouldn't try it yourself. But If you have everything needed to change your oil and are willing and able then here's what you do....
First: you will need and oil pan, funnel, wrench that fits your oil plug, new oil filter and possibly something to help remove your old oil filter, car jack stands/jack to lift your car.
Second: lift your car up enough to get under it using the jack, place oil pan under car's oil plug.
Next: remove oil plug let oil drain.
Next: remove oil filter
Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug.
Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.

Why is oil light blinking?


Oil light blinking usually indicated low oil pressure / viscosity. Probably either low on oil, incorrect oil weight, poor quality oil, or needs oil changed..........Mike

I need to replace the oil pan in a 2001 dodge neon. Is this a DYI job??


Do you need to replace the oil pan it self or just the oil pan seal? This can been a DYI job, depending on your experience working with cars. You will need a your basic tools. (Jack Stands, Jack, Oil Container, wrenches and sockets, new oil and filter.) The first thing you will need to do is drain the oil. This is a good time to change your oil since you will be taking the oil pan completely off.
Steps to removing oil pan
1) Set car on jack stands or ramps in order to work under the car. (Be Safe, Be Smart!)
2) You will need a wrench or socket to remove oil drain plug and drain the oil out of the car
-This is a good time to change your oil, so replace oil filter as well.
3) Once the oil is drained you can take of the oil pan off. Most oil pans are just bolted. Not to hard to take of.
4) Once off this is a good time to clean the oil pan if your just replacing the gasket. Do not use lubricant cleaners like wd-40. Brake cleaner has worked for me, you can also ask your local auto shop or autozone for a good cleaner.
5)Replace the oil pan with new gasket making sure there are no tears in gasket and it sits well between the oil pan and engine block. (Make sure there is nothing in the oil pan as well that could cause harm)
6) once you replaced the oil pan its just as simple as putting oil back into your car like you are changing your oil.

How to change the oil


If the thought of performing your own oil sends chills up and down your spine, just relax. You can tackle your own oil change, saving both time and money. There’s no need to wait in line at your local service station and no cause to pay someone for labor. Just put your game face on, gather a few tools, and tackle it on your own.
Start your oil change by gathering several items. You’ll need motor oil - secure about four to five quarts. You’ll also need a new oil filter, old rags, a funnel, an oil-drain pan, a box wrench, and an oil-filter wrench. You may or may not need a car jack to perform your oil change. This depends on how close the bottom of your car is to the ground.
Let your engine cool off and locate the oil drain plug. If you have trouble finding your oil drain plug, refer to your vehicle manuals. Use a box wrench to remove the plug and let the oil drain into a pan. Once the oil is drained completely, replace the drain plug.
For the next step of your oil change, you’ll need to remove the old oil filter. Put the catch pan under it. Remove the filter with an adjustable oil-filter wrench and a counter-clockwise motion. Expect to get some oil on your hands; an oil change is a dirty job. Take one of your old rags and wipe the filter-mount area, checking to make sure the old filter’s seal isn’t stuck on the engine.
Take some of your new motor oil and use it to coat the rubber seal of your new oil filter. Don’t put too much on; you only need a very light coating. Install the new oil filter by hand. Typically, an oil-filter wrench is not necessary for this step. Keep it handy, however, just in case tightening by hand fails to do the job.
Now it’s time to install new oil. For this part of the oil change, you’ll need to find and remove the oil-filler cap. Look for it on top of the engine; refer to your car manual if you have difficulty finding it. Put the funnel in the exposed opening and pour the new oil into the funnel. Be sure to refer to your car manual to determine how much oil you’ll need to add.
After adding the right amount of oil, replace the oil-filler cap, turn you car on, and run your engine for a minute. Check to make certain the oil-warning light doesn’t stay on and look under the car to make sure oil isn’t leaking. Finally, use the oil dipstick to check the oil level. Use rags to wipe away excess oil; newspapers are good for this as well. Congratulate yourself, as you’ve just successfully completed your oil change
For any questions please go here and submit. For free diagrams or help just enter relevant information and we will respond with-in 24 hours.
