You should be able to find one at most auto parts stores (may not be exactly like original but will cost about $6. If you want an original style, you can get one from Dodge/chrysler dealer or online Dodge parts reseller for about 12 - $15.

Last option is a junk yard but not worth the effort and gas money (the are usually not as close as your local parts store).

Why would i be smelling burning oil from my car

Check to see if the oil cap is on correctly. Take the oil cap off and put it back on. If you just put some oil in your vehicle some of the oil may have spilled onto the engine and will burn off unless you clean the oil off the top of the engine. It could be a valve cover leak. Look under the car for an oil leak on the ground and if you see fresh oil then take to your mechanic.

How and where do i find and change oil filter

to locate the oil filter you will need to remove the top cover of the engine, with the cover off and you standing in front of the car look toward the right of the motor and down, to the right of the intake manifold,, you will see a cap, the filter is located inside the housing, use a socket over the hex on the top of the cap and unscrew it counterclockwise, remove the cap and the filter will be on the cap, slide filter off and then you will see an oring on the cap, remove it and install new one supplied with the filter, this filter is a cartrige type, slide new filter onto cap and installtighten cap a little not to tight,lets see if i can find a diagram to help you locate it.johnjohn2_106.gif

Oil filter is spinning in the housing. scared to try to take it out

i believe that that your car has a cartridge filter (paper filter) that goes into a housing and has a cap that you take off to get to it the filter presses into the cap then you screw the cap back on most of the cartridge filter fell off of the caps and sit in the housings by the time you change your oil next.

Engine light on faults p 456 p522

P0456 is Evap Emission control small leak detected.
P0522 Engine oil pressure sensor low voltage.
The first code could be related to a loose, defective, or missing gas cap.
The second code, could be a defective sensor but you will need to confirm. Check oil level and condition first then onto the sensor and related wiring.

2002 Jeep Liberty: Battery cable loose wire was

first, though you mentioned no oil leaking, is there oil in the engine?
Next, if engine runs well and is not ticking or tapping, have the codes checked...most larger parts stores do this free. Once you have the stored codes you can look up what system is malfunctioning.
If engine is making any noise at all or there is no oil in it, DO NOT START OR DRIVE IT...make sure whoever did the oil change knows about this now...If someone forgot to put oil in, they may be buying you a new engine!
At this point it may be something simple but can also be very serious.(hope not)
good luck

Lease check and make sure that you replace with the right seal, that alone should have taken care of this problem. However if the valve cover gasket is loose or bad it will cause oil to leak around distributor are but NOT into distributor. This seal can be easily replaced by loosing 4 10mm bolts on top of valve cover. Contact if you need more help Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Corolla 96 while residue under oil cap

The white residue is an indication of moisture. this can be simply that the engine was hot then cooled down and knocked some humidity out of the air onto the cap and it mixed with some oil. You have a problem if you start to see that same white residue on the dipstick when checking the oil then that means that coolant is leaking into the oil. Also if you drain the oil you'll see water come out of the drain plug first then oil, thats a bad head/headgasket.

I have an oil leak, oil shows up on top of the engine.

Spray cold engine down with carb cleaner or brake cleaner. Let air out. Keep watch on where you first see the oil. It is most likely from your valve cover gasket.

The oil filter is not located on the bottom of the car in the Eco-tec engines like you may be used to seeing. It is actually in the upper area of the engine.

Open the hood and it will be slightly to the driver side of the intake manifold. (Black plastic looking set of tubes that go into top of engine). It will be an aluminum cylinder with a black plastic cap that has a molded "nut" on the top for removal of the cap. Just unscrew the cap. The filter will be clipped into the cap. Just pull it off and push new filter onto the cap and screw back into housing.
