Your rings are giving out. the gas is seeping through them letting it get into your oil.

If enough gas gets into your oil than it will not let the vehicle start. it will foul out the plugs.

Does anyone sell transfer case fill plugs for 1995 Geo Tracker?

The kicker here, is Chevrolet, for one reason or another, dropped the entire Geo line. They still produced the Storm, and Metro for a few years after, but under the Chevy name. Same with the Tracker. I would recommend doing a cross check of the transfer case, and see what, if any, other Chevy vehicles came equipped with the same part. That is one way to get a working part, even if it is discontinued. The other way, is to have a shop tap out a common plug diameter for a modern conventional plug.

Changed oil in my ford f350 year 1997 and now there is no oil pressure and knocking noise

Has there been zero oil pressure ever since you changed the oil?
Did you do it with motor warm? If so you lost the prime in your oil pump.Over fill the oil,couple quarts. start the engine,If you got oil pressure shut of engine and drain two quarts!

Where is the oil drain plug located?

how much is a little and how does anyone confuse a gas filler neck with an oil fill cap, they are in two completely different locations. if you haven't put in more than a cup of gas then it will burn off and not cause a problem therefore you won`t have to do anything but drive it. if its more then the drain plug is on the bottom of the OIL pan and you will or should change the oil and the filter as the gas will be in the filter as well.

I think I may have overfilled the engine oil in my 2005 Ford Ranger. I left for a trip and the stick was hard to see in the dark. Now I have oil leaking in the Drivers side floorboard. I don't know if...

You should remove the excess immediately. This can be done in two ways 1. Remove the drain plug on the pan under the motor. If you do not want to drain all of the oil, attach a vacuum hose from a vacuum cleaner at the oil fill on the valve cover. This creates a vacuum on th engine and prevents all the oil from draining at once. Otherwise 2. Drain all the oil and the refill to recommended level. Over fill of the oil creates air bubbles that prevent proper lubrication of the engine.

I am filling up 4 times out of the week instead of 2 times can you tell me what that is from

could be a leak. (look for gas puddles under your vehicle daily & have your oil pan drained to check for gas inthe oil pan)
could be your fuel mixture is to rich burning to much fuel0.
could be someone is stealing gas from your tank. (get a key lock on your gas cap if you dont have one yet.)
could be your driving more then you normally do. (monitor your miles driven versus how much gas you burn and figure out your miles per gallon to see if it is off something drastic)

How to change engine oil?

You can't see it from the top because the oil pan and drain plug are on the bottom of the engine. You will probably have to jack up the car in order to crawl underneathand reach the drain plug.

You should change the oil when the car is cold, otherwise you'll end up with hot oil spilling onto your hands. You'll also need a pan that holds 2 gal of liquid and place it under the car beneath the drain plug.

Remove the plug, drain the oil, replace the plug. Remove and replace trhe filter. then refill with oil. Do not over fill
