How do I drain the oil out of my 2002 beetle


Pull oil dipstick. Remove the drain plug from the oil pan. Once that is empty replace plug. Then remove oil filter. Replace filter by filling new one half full with oil and smearing clean oil around the rubber seal on the filter. Reinstall and fill with engine with appropriate amount of oil. Confirm oil level on dipstick. Start engine and monitor oil pre and check for leaks. Recycle used oil and dispose of filter properly.

What is the engine oil capacity for a 1996 Freightliner FL70?


Should be 6 quarts with a new filter. Best way to do it though is 2 drain the old oil, remove & replace the oil filter, put in 4 or 5 quarts, turn over the engine 2 get new oil in the new filter & then check the level on the oil dipstick and add more oil until it shows full.

The generator shuts off after 30 minutes with an oil level alert but oil level if full


Your oil level sensor is bad. It needs to be replaced. If you unplug the wire leads to the sensor you may get the generator to run, but you'll have no low oil level/pressure protection. The oil level sensor is on the engine crankcase usually near the oil level dipstick. You'll likely see a small sensor with a couple of wires attached to it. To replace it, you'll need to drain your engine crankcase before removing the sensor.

Instructions
Clean Cooler and Check Oil Levels
1 Run the mower for a period of five minutes to warm up the transmission oil. Once warmed, stop the engine and set the parking brake.
2 Lift up and secure the driver's seat in the open position. In most cases, the transmission oil cooler for the transmission is located under the seat.
3 Locate the oil cooler behind the transmission oil tank. The cooler looks like a small radiator and consists of hundreds of thin fins. Wipe the fins down with a clean rag to remove debris.
4 Locate the fill cap on the transmission oil tank and clean the area around it with a clean rag. This prevents dirt from getting into the transmission oil tank.
5 Remove the lid and check the level of oil on the dipstick connected to the underside of the lid. If the dipstick indicates the oil level is low, place a funnel into the hole and fill the transmission oil tank to the appropriate oil level. In most cases, use a 20W50 oil. However, this could differ depending on the brand of mower. Check the owner's manual for the exact viscosity.
Change Transmission Oil
6 Lift up and secure the driver's seat in the open position.
7 Locate the silver or gray oil filter next to the transmission oil tank. Turn the filter counterclockwise with your hand to remove it from the coupler. If necessary, use an oil filter wrench to remove the filter.
8 Locate the inlet hose secured to the back of the filter coupler and pull it off. Drain the transmission oil into a large container. Plug the hose back in once oil stops draining.
9 Place an oil filter seal onto the oil filter, and place a small amount of oil onto the seal. Thread the seal onto the coupler and tighten it with your hand.
10 Wipe the area around the filler cap on the oil tank clean with a rag and then remove the cap.
11 Place a funnel into the transmission oil tank and fill it with 20W50 oil until the level of fluid reaches the "full" line on the oil dipstick.

How to Change transmission fluid on 2001 celica


Hi there, hope these few steps help:
  • Raise the car with a jack and support the vehicle with jack stands sufficiently rated to safely support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Place a large drip pan under the transmission.
  • Remove the transmission fluid drain bolt with a wrench. The drain bolt is located at the bottom of the transmission facing the pan. The pan is the large flat plate that covers the very bottom of the transmission.
  • Drain the transmission fluid into the drip pan.
  • Reinstall the transmission fluid drain bolt with the same wrench used to remove the bolt.
  • Lower the vehicle to the ground after removing the jack stands.
  • Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick from the filler tube by pulling the dipstick. The end of the dipstick will be curved into a circle to allow a finger to slide into the circle to withdraw the dipstick.
  • Place a funnel into the dipstick tube and fill the transmission with new fluid by pouring the fluid into the dipstick tube.
  • Remove the funnel and check the fluid level with the dipstick until the fluid reaches the "Full" mark on the tip of the dipstick.
  • Start and allow the engine to run for a few minutes.
  • Move the transmission gear selector through all of the gears while depressing the brake pedal.
  • Turn the engine off and check the fluid level on the dipstick. Add transmission fluid if necessary.
Best of luck.

Where is the transmission oil serviced


Run the Low Rider's motor for a few minutes to warm the oil up. Shut off the bike.
  • 2 Find your Low Rider's drain plug (on the oil pan). Using the screwdriver, loosen then remove the drain plug, and drain the oil into the drain pan.
  • 3 Remove the Low Rider's dipstick.
  • 4 Let the oil drain completely.
  • 5 Clean the drain plug threads with a clean cloth or paper towel, apply sealant, and replace the oil plug and dipstick.
  • 6 Move the drain pan to beneath the oil filter. Using the oil filter wrench, remove the oil filter.
  • 7 Discard the filter in the pan with the old oil. It is full of oil.
  • 8 With a clean rag or paper towel, clean the area where the gasket meets the motor.
  • 9 With a clean finger, rub a bit of new oil on the gasket of the new oil filter before installing it.
  • 10 Install the new filter, turning until snug, then turn it by hand another 1/2 turn. Take care to not over-tighten, as this will damage the filter gasket or the filter, possibly causing the Low Rider to fail.
  • 11 Open the oil reservoir, using the funnel; fill the tank with the fresh oil and close the reservoir.
  • 12 Run the motor for a few moments to coat the engine with the new oil. Check for leaks. (If you find any, check the filter and drain plug for a tight fit.)
  • 13 If there are no leaks, after the motor has run for a few minutes, turn off the motor and check the oil level. Top it off if necessary.

  • hope this helps

    HOW TO CHANGE OIL PAN ON F150


    Hi. Here's the procedure on how to change the oil pan.

    Things You'll Need:
    Drain pan
    Crescent wrench
    New oil filter
    Oil filter wrench
    Socket wrench
    Socket set
    Razor knife
    Putty knife
    New oil pan
    Oil pan gasket
    6 qt. of oil
    Clean towel

      Draining the Oil
    1. 1 Locate the oil pan directly underneath the engine. The oil pan will be held on to the bottom of the motor by 16 to 18 bolts. The drain plug is at the bottom of the pan.
    2. 2 Loosen the drain plug with a crescent wrench. Allow all the oil to drain in to the pan. Tighten the drain plug when the oil is through draining.
    3. 3 Unscrew the oil filter with an oil filter wrench. Place the oil filter with the waste oil.
    4. 4 Rub new motor oil around the gasket of the new oil filter. Pour 1 qt. of oil in to the filter.
    5. 5 Screw the filter to the filter housing with your hands. Do not wrench-tighten as this will strip the threads and make removal of the filter difficult.
    6. Replacing the Oil Pan
    7. 1 Locate all the bolts holding the oil pan in place. There will be 16 to 18 bolts.
    8. 2 Unscrew all the bolts with a socket wrench. Lower the pan to the ground. If the pan is stubborn, tap it with a rubber mallet to loosen the seal from the gasket.
    9. 3 Scrape clean all the gasket material around the bottom surface of the motor. This will ensure a tight seal with the new oil pan.
    10. 4 Place the new gasket around the new oil pan. Raise the oil pan to the motor and screw in all the bolts. Do not tighten the bolts until all are threaded to the bottom of the motor.
    11. 5 Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench. Ensure that all the bolts are tight.
    12. Adding the New Motor Oil
    13. 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil filler cap on top of the crankcase. Pull the engine oil dipstick from the tube. Wipe the dipstick clean with a fresh towel.
    14. 2 Pour in 5 qt. of oil in to the engine crank case. Insert the dipstick back in to the tube and pull it back out. Check the oil level against the markings on the dipstick. Fill at 1/2 qt. intervals until the dipstick indicates "Full."
    15. 3 Start the truck and allow it to run for five minutes. Allow the truck to sit for an additional five minutes to allow the oil to drain back to the oil pan.
    16. 4 Check the oil level again. Fill if necessary, but do not overfill.

    There are no markings on the dipstick to know where the acceptable level for the oil is on the 1996 Millinea. How do I know if I have enough oil?


    Drain the crankcase oil into a clean container in which you are able to measure the amount. Replenish this amount up to the quantity stated in your hand book. Remove dipstick and fill the crancase with just this oil. Dip the oil level and using a scriber or a file, mark the dipstick at the level of the oil.
    Notes:
    1. The quanity of oil is the engine capaity less the oil filter.
    2. You may wish to use clean new oil and fit a new filter. If so, use the fill capacity including the oil filter, or add about another pint.

    How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine


    Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
    1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
    RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
    CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
    So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
    2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
    3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
    4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
    5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

    Best of luck :)
