Question about 2003 Triumph Triumph Thunderbird

Oil weeping from Left side; appears to be underneath. Not at filter or sump-plug, as I recently did an oil/filter and plug change with new sump-plug & washer. Have checked these again and both A1. Any ideas? Thanks. Jock

As I live in Scotland, your offer is not a lot of good to me, Thanks.
P.S. Thanks Ollie, I had already tried the obvious route of thorough clean and re-torque; didn't work. Thanks anyway.

How do i change oil and filter in toyota estima


There are two ways of changing the oil, and both involve running the engine until hot first.

Firstly, don't forget to have the spares (this includes enough oil to fill the sump -- find this quantity in the vehicle's instruction-book --and filter) and the necessary tools (oil-filter remover belt or long, thick screwdriver, sump-plug key and bowl) to hand.

The first way is to put a bowl which will contain enough to hold the lubricant under the sump and carefully releasing the sump plug. Do wear plastic (not rubber, as these dissolve in oil) whilst you're doing this as used oil can be carcinogenic. Now (remember the engine is hot), carefully loosen the sump plug. Put the bowl underneath the sump and remove the sump plug. It is more important to avoid the boiling oil than to catch the sump plug, which can be fished out later, when cool. Once cool, remove the bowl and replace the sump plug.

The second way is to go to a garage which offers free oil changes (you only buy the oil) and they will put a tube down your dipstick aperture and vacuum the oil out. This is not as good as allowing the oil to drip through the sump drain hole.

Now remove the oil filter using the strap or by piercing the old filter with a screwdriver and using that as a lever and turning the filter anticlockwise.

Put a little oil on the seal of the new filter and screw this onto the seating by hand. DO NOT TIGHTEN BEYOND HAND-TIGHT.

Refill the sump with the manufacturer's recommended type and quantity of clean oil, though there may be a little residual oil in the engine, so do check before overfilling. Do not overfill.

Put a piece of sticky paper in the driver's door jamb with the date and mileage at which you changed the oil and filter.

Nissan oil capacity QD32


Cut the side out of a 10 litre oil container to catch the used oil.
Use a plastic shopping bag around the filter to catch most of the oil when you maneouvre the filter out of the engine compartment. About 6 liters new oil, diesel 15w40 dino oil is what I use to refill both sump and oil filter, about 5.3 in sump, the rest in the filter. Run engine and then recheck on dipstick after engine has been stopped for 5 minutes to allow drain back to sump.great thing is that you don't have to jack up the vehicle to get under it just to do the oil, but it makes it easier to do the filter if you remove the left front wheel and go through the rubber side curtains between the wheel well and the engine bay to get to the filter, especially if the engine is hot.

I am doing oil changes on 2007 Dyna Low Rider and do not have book. Need to know location of the engine and transmission drain plug and quantities of oil.


One litre in the primary of Formula+, one liter Formula+ in gearbox, approx. 2.4 litres engine oil HD360 in sump. Look underneath and find sump. Engine oil drain plug is on left side of sump near bottom and back and is in horizontal. Gearbox drain plug is to the right side of sump about half way and points up. Torque is 14 lbs-ft with DRY CLEAN threads. Use new O rings on bung plugs, part #:11105. Warning: very easy to strip these threads.

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.

JUST BOUGHT A 1981 YAMAHA XS650. WHERE IS THE OIL FILTER LOCATED?


Underneath the motor are 2 drain plugs. The front one is attached to the sump plate. Remove the sump plate and you will find a sump filter. On the specials you will need to remove the side stand to remove the sump plate

Oil change


To drain the oil - all you have to do is remove the small (about 4" x 5") plastic rectangular cover which is situated towards the rear of the "plastic tray". It is secured by one hex head screw (about 8mm I think). This reveals the sump plug (hex head 17mm) on the side of the sump. Make sure you have a good big drip tray underneath as, due to the sump plug facing sideways, when the oil first runs out it shoots way over towards the side of the car. I found this to my cost the first time as I had positioned a container underneath the sump drain hole and the oil shot horizontally over the top of it and poured all over my driveway. Re the second half of your question, sorry - I dont know anything about the oil level sensor.
