I always use a fram filter from advance auto parts. As for oil, The older bike should not run synthetic oil. The clutches were not designed for it and can cause slipping. I use Valvoline 5w30. Should hold around 3 quarts. There should be a dipstick or site glass on the right side of the engine, almost behind the exhaust.

How do you 2013 change th oil on a 2013 impala


All cars are fairly simple to change the oil. You need to purchase oil that will meet Chevy's recommendations. Buy the replacement oil first and a filter that fits. You can spend a lot on a filter but I have found buying them from Amazon is best and the least expensive. K&N is my filter of choice because they have a nut on the top that you can use to remove it months down the road for your next oil change.

Check to see what the specifications on oil capacity are. Most modern cars take between 4 to 6 quarts. Synthetic oil is best for engine protection and also allows for longer drain intervals.

Once you have the oil and filter, open the hood of car and expose the engine. Remove the oil fill cap to release pressure in the oil crank case. Get under the car (might have to jack it up on one side in the front) and locate the oil pan. Remove the oil drain plug from the oil pan and drain the oil. (Helps to have a plastic oil drain pan for oil disposal later). Another tip, drive the car for about 10 minutes before changing the oil to allow the oil viscosity to thin the oil and drain faster and more completely.


Once the oil has drained of (when it gets down to a slow drip) replace the oil plug and then remove the oil filter. You will probably need an oil filter wrench. Turn the filter until oil starts to drain. I usually wait until the oil above the filter to drain and then I turn the filter to remove it. Be careful when the filter drops because there is oil in filter and it will spill if you aren't prepared for the drop.

Get the next filter and put oil on the rubber gasket to form a good seal when you reinstall the new filter.

Stand up now and remove all of the oil and tools from underneath. If the car is jacked up, you can lower it.

Next, pour the new oil in the oil filler cap hole. Remember to only pour the amount that your car's specifications list. Stop a little before then and check you oil dip stick. The car had oil still in the engine so usually you never have to put the full amount of oil as there is a small amount of oil in the engine. Check the oil stick and add more if necessary.

Replace your oil filler cap, lower your hood, and go for a test drive. The oil light should come on when you start the car but go off very quickly. After you finish your test drive, check under the car for any leaks.

And that is it!

I have a kawasaki ninja 250 when i chang the oil is it ok if i dont change the filter


Hello,

No... you should always change the oil filter. The oil filter is designed to keep your oil clean of particulates that can damage your engine. Not changing it every oil change can reduce your engine life.

How to change engine oil and oil filter


Drain the oil out the bottom of the oil pan there is a plug its just a bolt be careful not to drain the tranmission fluid. after all oil is drained put plug back in. remove oil filter (probably goin to need oil filter wrench). put new oil filter in place of the old one put small amount of oil on the gasket on new oil filter this will help make it easier to remove next time. if you can fill new filter up with oil before installing this will prevent dry starting. fill motor with recomended oil type and amount. you can go to any auto parts store they will set you up with everything you need an tell you the correct amounts. They even sell dvds now that will give you step by step instructions if you need further help.

I need to change my oil how many quarts do I need? what kind of oil do i need?


Your manual should say, I would measure the amount you drain including the filter or screen and top off as needed. Never over fill as this can lead to seal failure!
