well if u have never changed oil i would reccoment bringing it to someone to do it but anyways you will need a oil filter wrench an oil drain pan and some wrenches. 1st your going to have to jack up the front of the car fron the proper lift points and thn bring the oil drain pan with you and also take ur wreches. Look for the oil pan its mostlikely black and its going to be on the bottom of ur engin, thers a bolt in the bottom of it find the wrench for it losten the bolt and bring the drain pan under where the bolt it now take the bolt compleatly out and clean it off while the oil drains. onece it is drained put the bolt back in and make it a 1/2 turn past tight. now look on ur motor for some thing that looks like a small coffee can thats ur oil filter it twist off and be carefull because it is filled eith oil you also will have to dain this in the pan then clean off the area where the filter was connected then put on new filter and put oil into your car until the dip stick reads full..... good luck

How to fix a front leaky oil seal in a 1995 Toyota Camry LE

Three seals to check. easiest is the valve cover seal. Number and remove the 4 wires going into your spark plugs. remove 4 nuts holding the cover and replace seal.
Next easiest is the distributor O-ring. Remove air filter assembly remove the distributor cap, then the distributor. With the valve cover still off, loosen the 2 bolts that clamp the distributor down. Remove the 2 terminal leads going into the distributor (4 wire terminal/2 wire terminal) Mark the case of the distributor and the case of the head with one line so you can line it back up on reinstallation. remove the 3 bolts holding the distributor down. Replace O-ring. replace distributor, align, tighten the 2 bolts, then tighten the 3 bolts. replace terminal wiring and cap. replace air filter assembly. Replace valve cover with new gasket. Place spark plug wires back into their proper places. The last one is the oil pan gasket. Drain all oil and remove all blots holding the pan. drop the pan and replace the gasket. Put it all back into place. Do not over tighten the pan bolts as this will cause the gasket to deform, making it leak again.

How do I change the oil?

Way underneath the bike, sort of near the kickstand, is the drain plug. You really have to get underneath to see it. Unscrew that and let the oil drain into a container, then replace the plug and tighten. Under the triangular silver cover on the right side of the bike is the oil filter. Unscrew the three bolts and take the cover off, and be careful not to lose the spring under the oil filter. Replace the oil filter with a new one and make sure the spring is situated correctly. You may want to replace the rubber o-ring for the cover too.

Replace the oil with SAE 10w-4o and check the sight-glass for proper level.

How to change oil 1978 goldwing gl1000

Get 4 quarts of JASO MA certified motor oil. I recommend synthetic , it will shift better when hot. Amsoil is a good choice. Place an oil pan under the front of the motor. Use a 6 point socket to loosen the bolt on the round finned oil filter cover on the front right corner of the motor and spin it off.Take the oil filter out of the cover and make sure you save the washer that will stick to the rubber seal. Pull bolt out of cover and replace o-ring. put bolt back thru cover, first slide on spring,then washer,and then filter and spin back onto motor pressing filter against engine case. Snug bolt but do not over tighten. Now remove bolt in the middle of the front/bottom of motor(large one in middle , NOT small one under water pump). Check aluminum washer,if bad replace.After oil has drained put bolt back in , do not over tighten.Take off fill plug on right rear corner of motor(by final drive shaft) Using a funnel pour in 4 quarts oil (3.9 is correct amount, 1/10th quart does not seem to bother anything). Put plug back in , start up, and check for leaks.

How to remove and replace the oil filter

Hi there,

Well you can follow the below steps -
Tools needed - 
6, 8 and 10mm Allen (hex) key 3/8" sockets or "T" wrenches
Socket wrench (3/8") and a 2" & 10" extension
12, 14 & 17mm. sockets
8 and 17mm short box wrenches
Shallow oil drain pan.
Short section of a 2"x4" piece of wood. About 4" long will do.

Supplies needed - 
Oil - 4 Quarts of MC specific oil (your choice) 
Oil filter - Yamaha 4X7-13440-90
Wipe rags & Paper towels
A 10" square of aluminum foil paper towels

1. ) With your bike in gear, place the short piece of 2\"x4\" under your side stand. The small block of wood positions the bike in more of an upright attitude. This will give you a bit of working room under the bike, but it will not raise it to the point of going over in the other direction.

2. ) Locate and lightly loosen the following bolts and nuts:
The oil drain plug - With the 17mm. socket wrench, Break loose the oil drain plug, but do not unscrew it (make sure that you have not loosened it to the point where the oil starts to seep out. (The silver colored bolt on the underside of the case, on the left side of the bike under the shifter)
The two nuts holding the forward exhaust pipe to the exhaust manifold with a 12mm socket wrench (Just break them free, do not remove them)

3. ) Take the bike out of gear. Remove the block of wood from under the side stand and warm the engine up by starting it and letting it idle for a few minutes. Then shut it down.

4. ) Put the bike back in gear and place the wood block back under the side stand. Slide the shallow oil drain pan under the engine and back out the oil drain bolt using either the 17mm short box wrench or the 17mm. socket wrench, so that you can unscrew it the rest of the way and remove it with your fingers. Clean the drain bolt with a rag and put it aside.

5. ) Using the 10mm hex socket, remove the two bolt holding the mufflers to the frame. Next, loosen the clamps holding the front pipes to the mufflers using the 6mm hex socket. Using the wipe rags (HOT!), pull the mufflers toward the back of the bike. They should slide right out.

6. ) (This step is only required if you have an 1100 Classic with floorboards) Using the 14mm socket and wrench, loosen the two bolts holding the right floorboard until they are almost completely out, and the floorboard will hang down slightly.

7. ) Next, using the 8 mm wrench, remove the bolt holding the rear brake reservoir. Let the unit hang loose.

8. ) Using the 12mm socket, remove the two nuts on the forward exhaust pipe flange. Grabbing the front of the pipe with wipe rags, gently remove the front exhaust pipe. Take extreme care in removing the pipe as you will scratch it (like the dealer's shop always does) if you are not careful. If the copper gasket falls off the engine, just let it go. I promise you that it will be very, very HOT! Just make sure that it goes back on when you re-assemble the pipes.

9. ) Using the 8mm hex socket with the 10 in. extension (or an 8mm. \"T\" wrench) loosen the five case screws holding the filter cover. There are 3 different lengths of screws, so leave them in the cover. You don't need to remove the 3 screws holding the round \"Yamaha beauty\" cover on the filter cover, there is nothing behind this cover (It comes off easily to enable you to buy a new one from the Star Catalog for $39.95 STR-5KS27-43-02 that does not say Yamaha). Remove the filter cover. If you wrap a small square of aluminum foil over the section of frame and wiring just below the filter cover, you will avoid slopping oil over the frame of your bike.

10. ) You will find an unpolished filter hatch plug underneath which you will need to wiggle back and forth as you pull straight out to remove it. Be careful not to damage the O-rings on the cover. Wipe any grit or dirt away with a clean paper towel.

11. ) Remove the filter (pay attention to the orientation of the filter when you remove it). Wipe any sediment from the filter chamber with a clean paper towel and insert the new filter.

12. ) Reinstall all parts in the reverse order of disassembly

13. ) Unscrew the black plastic oil filler cap and insert the funnel into the filler hole. Engine Oil with oil filter replacement (3.28 US qt) ( 0.28 quart = 8.96 oz ) Engine Oil- Without oil filter replacement 
(3.17 US qt) ( 0.17quart = 5.44oz )  

Start the bike and bring it up to full operating temperature. Check for any signs of leaking oil from the filter hatch and the drain plug.

When you shut the engine down, check your oil level in the sight glass on the left side lower engine case. The bike must be held level front to back and side to side. This is quite a balancing act as your head needs to be about 14" off the ground in order to see the oil level in the sight glass. Post comments for further help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Can you tell me where the oil filter is located on a volvo v50

the filter is a canister/element type meaning its not one you just screw on. with that in mind youre looking for a black round cover on the oil pan which be unscrewed and when you take it down you will see the filter inside. replace it and the o rings and refill the oil. the system will hold about 6 quarts.
