You don't have a model listed so it's tough to answer. A filter case is a bolt-on part, not part of the bottom end. If what's broken is the bottom casting of the engine you may be able to epoxy it depending on the extent of the damage. Just a crack can be done pretty easily, it there's a chunk missing it'll much harder to impossible.

Is it possible for me to change the engine oil as im a new timer on these situations thank you.


"anything is possible"



depending on your vehicle's year make model and engine size, the drain plug and oil filter may or may not be hard to get to



today's era of youtube videos and car owners forums makes it easier than before



look it up to see if it's easy to get your oil filter and drain plug for your car/ truck



SAFETY first! use JACK STANDS & don't rely on the jacks by themselves to hold your vehicle up ~ i've known a neighbor and a co-worker who almost got crushed to death



have backup tools to remove your oil filter in case the previous person didn't lube the o-ring and/or over tighten the filter. i have a strap wrench or correct end-cap oil wrench for my vehicles



depending on how the oil filter is mounted, i usually add some oil right into the filter to get it pre-charged while i also lube that rubber seal/o-ring on the filter....



some say to use NEW oil drain plug gaskets before you torque it down (to specs) each plug has a torque spec; but i got away with re-using it a few times before i replace the gasket.



I spin the drain plug on by hand first to avoid cross-threading ~ then use torque wrench. you don't want this plug to loosen while you're driving on the highway or you don't want to overtighten it and have the threads on the oil pan to strip on you...



do not overfill your vehicle's oil capacity ~ the crankshaft will whip it up to foam, causing your engine bearings to starve for oil



so look up the torque spec for your drain plug, and oil capacity

Hi iv got a 1992 Ford Maverick (petrol&gas) just wanting to know with a new oil filter how much oil they take and should it be 20w-40 or which is best?


it should take 5 quarts of oil,and 5-30 is usually the grade to run.but try to run what it has always ran on,if u just got it check with previous owner or look for old receipts in glove box trunk under seat.look in the engine compartment because some people write down what they use.i recommend Castrol oil, if you can not find out what was used before. hope this helps

Oil pressure low. Sludge in engine


Doesn't sound good, but there's something you can try.

Assuming you changed the filter and then discovered low oil pressure, it's entirely possible the oil pressure relief valve is gummed up and not fully seated, or the spring may be broken or weak.

I don't have a manual/diagram to show you the location, but it's usually on the oil pump under a removable plug. Inside is a spring pressing against a plunger that holds the oil pressure back. Any excess pressure, such as when the engine is cold, will force it open.

Any problem here can reduce oil pressure to zero.
You may be able to repair it, though I guess the engine has already been damaged somewhat.

Oil light want go off car want stay started


There is a way to reset it. Call the dealership or look in your owners manual for the help. But, I know the owners manual has the fix. You have a digital screen where it says oil change due? Or at 80%?
