+how to change engine motor oil


let engine cool down. that way all the oil will drain to the pan. leave engine off until new oil is added. it is a good idea to also change the oil filter at this time. you can ask the guy's at the place where you bout the oil, how many quarts your car will take. autozone is a good source. they can also recoment the right oil as far as viscosity. now it's time to crawl under your vehicle and remove the drain plug. don't forget to put the drain pan directly under the drain plug and oil filter that's why i always use a container that i buy from the dollar store, it's big enough to get under the drain plug and the filter(carefull, the oil filter will still have oil in it). i think they mostly use them for doing dishes. let it set and drain for 10 minutes to get the most old oil out..................now it's time to add the new oil and filter. in this order.....add new oil filter(wet the seal of the filter with oil), add new oil except for last quart. (last quart add only half of it as there are lots of cars that require for example.........(5 1/2 quarts) now start engine and look for leaks around filter and oil plug. now remove drain pan or you'll probably run over it. lol take it for a short drive and while engine is still running, check for leaks again. if you have followed these instructions, your done. congratulations !!!.

How to change your oil in 3 easy steps


(1) Getting Ready When getting ready, it is important to have the right tools and materials on hand, such as jack stands, a socket set and an oil drain pan. Let your Car engine run for 10 minutes before you drain the oil since warm oil is easier to drain than cold. Make sure you park on a level surface or, if your car has a low clearance, jack it up or drive it onto a ramp. If youre jacking up the car, use two jack stands instead of one. check the type of filter you need against the make and model of your vehicle

(2) Draining the Oil and Changing the Oil Filter To drain the oil, crawl under the car and look for the oil drain plug under the engine near the front of the car. Position your pan beneath the plug then use a socket or spanner to loosen the plug, turning counterclockwise. Once loosened, you can use your hand to remove the plug and the hot oil starts pouring out. Make sure all the old oil is drained into the pan. Once its completely drained, wipe the drain plug and the plug opening. Now replace the drain plug gasket and use a wrench to reinstall the plug but dont make it too tight.

Next, look for the oil filter. They are usually at the side of the engine. Place the oil pan beneath the filter in case any oil remains. Unscrew the oil filter (use gloves if it is too hot) and wipe the filter area clean, especially where it mounts to the engine. Dab a bit of your new oil on the rubber seal of the new filter and then screw it in by hand. You dont have to use a filter wrench to tighten the oil filter.

(3) Installing New Oil Remove the oil filler cap thats located at the top of the engine. Position the funnel at the opening and slowly start pouring in the new oil You might want to check your manual for the proper oil capacity but, typically, you will need three or four litres of oil. Once youre done, put back the oil filler cap. Start the engine, let it run for a minute and then check the dipstick. If you need to, add more oil. Now check for any leaks near the oil drain plug and the filter. If you do find leaks, simply tighten the plug or oil filter.

Youre done.

How to change oil


There is a drain plug located on the lower side of engine somewhere....it varies from model to model. Simply take out drain plug....drain oil in approved container......replace oil filter( if your model has one) with a new one....lubing the oil filter seal before installing....replacing drain plug....and adding the correct amount and type oil for your model engine. Always return used oil to a recycling center...auto part store usually provide this service.

I am doing an oil change on my firtst 88 inch twin cam. the manual shows where the drain plug is. but when I started draining what i thought was the motor oil . it appears that transmission oil came out....


I think the engine oil drain is on the bottom of the oil pan and the transmission oil drain is on the side. I'm really not positive as I work on the older models that have both drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. On my 1994 WideGlide, the drain plug in the middle of the pan is the transmission drain and the one on the front left bottom is the engine oil. Go to this site as look your bike up. Look at the Transmission picture of the housing. http://www.bikebandit.com

Good Luck

How do I change all my fluids on a FLHTC 2005


There are three areas that you have to service, engine oil, primary oil, and transmission.

To change the engine oil, underneath the transmission, you'll find two drain plugs. The drain plug nearest the left side of the engine is the the engine oil drain. Warm the engine a bit and drain the oil. Change the oil filter. This is a messy job so put something down to catch the oil as it runs out of the filter. Replace drain plug and refill with oil.

The plug nearest the center of the transmission is the transmission drain. Remove the plug to drain the transmission. Once drained replace the plug and refill the transmission through the transmission fill hole in the chrome cover on the right side of the transmission.

To change the primary oil, underneath the primary outer cover very near the rear of this cover is a small drain plug. It takes a Torx wrench to get the plug out. Remove the plug to drain the oil from the primary. Remove the derby cover over the clutch. Refill with oil through the derby cover hole.

Your bike probably came with H-D Syn3 oil. You can replace the oil with this or any other oil as long as it carries a rating for use in a diesel engine. Here, it must have an API code of "C", example "SJ/CG4". Four quarts of engine oil, Add three quarts of oil and check. Fill to proper level with the fourth. Your dipstick is marked with a "Full Cold" and "Full Hot" mark. Fill to "Full Cold" mark and check again after warming up the engine.

Use Syn3 in the primary or 30 weight oil, 40-44 ounces. With the bike standing nearly straight up, the fluid level should be to the bottom of the clutch spring, large black disc in the center of the clutch. It's a diaphragm type spring.


Use Syn3 in the transmission, 20-24 fluid ounces. Check with the dip stick again with the bike standing straight up.

How to change oil in 2006 HD road king


The oil tank in a Road King is on the bottom of the transmission. If you look under the transmission, you will see two drain plugs. One for the engine oil and one for the transmission. I THINK the plug closest to the left side of the bike is the engine oil. I say "I think" because the latest model that I have personally changed the oil in is a 2000 model. Drain the oil, change the filter, add new oil. If you accidently drain the transmission (check the engine oil dipstick, if it still shows oil in the tank, you drained the wrong one), the transmission takes 20-24 ounces of Harley Syn3 oil. Best to refer to an owner's manual or go to your local dealer and ask the question.

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Need to tune and change oil on 1996 Kawasaki vulcan 1500


a complete tune up consists of new fuel filter, oil filter, oil, plugs, valve adjust, carb sync and plug wires(optional).. if there is no dipstick, there must be a sight glass on one side of the engine down low. on that model i believe the oil filter is underneath along with the drain plug. there should be (2) 17mm bolts, one for drain plug the other for filter.
