SOURCE: Small oil leak

Most likely it is your ATF container is leaking were the two hoses on the bottom connect to it. Also there is an o-ring on the cap that can be replaced. Replace the hose clamps at the bottom with quality claps with rounded over edges. Try this part number at Bavarian Autosport, CL 16-25. Here is the BMW part number for the o-ring: 32411128333. The o-ring on the oil filter cover comes with and is replaced with the filter.

SOURCE: 2003 Beetle 2.0 has oil

the plug is the lowest part, so any leak above it will end up at the plug, so make sure it has a good gasket at the plug. you may need to get some "brake cleaner" and clean any oil off, and then run the car and determine where the leak is originating from.

Steps to change the oil

Get an oil pan and place under drain plug on oil pan of the motor, remove drain plug and make sure while oil is running out that you have the pan in position to catch the draining oil. Locate oil filter and remove, sometimes you can do this by hand after wrapping with a rag, but you may need an oil filter wrench. It will have oil in it so be careful as you unscrew it to quickly turn the end with the threads up so as not to spill the remaining oil. Put the filter threads down on the drain pan to drain the filter. Make sure the new filter and the old filter are the same. I would put the threaded ends together to make sure the rubber seal is the same size. Put a couple drops of new oil on the new filters rubber seal and spread. Screw the new filter on being careful not to crossthread it, and tighten down by hand. Wrap a rag around the filter and give another quarter turn to tighten. Replace drain plug at oil pan and fill with oil. Start the motor and let run for 10-15 seconds and turn off and check oil level again, adding more if needed, but dont overfill.

Oil Change

Depending on the manufacture some come with oil filters and some without. There exists on all machines a drain plug located on or near the bottom of the crankcase housing. Use a suitable container to catch the drain oil ( 1 gallon drain pan ) . Drain the oil completely from the crankcase some drain plugs contain a magnet to catch particles clean it off prior to reinstalling it, reinstall the drain plug. Locate and remove the oil filter making sure the old oil filter base gasket comes off with the old filter, install a new oil filter as described by the manufacture. Then refill the crankcase with the proper mount of new engine oil through the filler plug/ dipstick hole.

How to do an oil change on a 1996 Chevrolet Corsia

The same way you would on almost any vehicle. Remove the oil drain plug and drain oil into a approved container. Then remove the oil filter and drain any remaining oil from there into the container. Then when it's all drained out. screw the drain plug back in and install a new oil filter. Make sure to put some oil around the gasket of the new oil filter. Now fill up your oil with the correct oil for your engine and the correct amount. Usually start with about 4 quarts and then check the dip stick and keep filling accordingly.
thank you and enjoy,

Where is the thermostat on my 2002 audi a 4 located


The thermostat of a 2002 audi a4 is located between the engine and the radiator. The thermostat is small and crucial. It is meant for the vehicles cooling system. It moderates the flow of coolant into the engine by releasing it when the engine need it the most. The thermostat is designed to open its valve once the temperature of the engine reaches about 200 degrees F. Its purpose is to keep the engine running at a consistent temperature, allowing your Audi A4 to operate at peak performance.

If You are planning on replacing the thermostat, here are the steps to follow to replace them, try to get these instruments (Car ramps, 4-by-4 inch wood block, Metric socket wrench set, Socket extension, Pliers, Drain pan, Empty plastic container, Black marker, Towel, Emery cloth, Gasket seal) then follow the steps below:
  1. Raise the front end of your Audi A4 by driving up on a set of car ramps and placing your vehicle in park.
  2. Place a 4-by-4 inch wood block behind one of the rear tires to keep the vehicle from rolling backward.
  3. Use a socket wrench to remove the pan that covers the bottom of the engine.
  4. Locate the red plastic cap that was behind the pan that you just removed. This red cap is your radiator drain plug. Remove the radiator cap from the top of the radiator and then place a drain pan under the red drain plug and turn it with a pair of pliers to allow the coolant to drain completely from the radiator. Once the coolant has completely drained, turn the drain plug to close it off. Be careful when using the pliers on the drain plug that you do not snap the plug off.
  5. Slide under the vehicle and locate the thermostat housing that is sitting just above the oil pan drain plug. Pour the drained coolant from the drain pan into an empty plastic container and label the container so that you do not reuse the expelled coolant. Place the empty drain pan under the thermostat housing before you attempt to remove the housing to allow the coolant from the engine to drain into it.
  6. Remove the 10 mm bolts that hold the thermostat housing on the engine block with a metric socket wrench. Do not lay directly underneath the thermostat housing as the coolant from the engine will begin to drain as soon as you loosen the bolts on the housing. Keep a towel or cloth with you to clean off any spilled coolant .
  7. Remove the thermostat housing from the engine and lift the old thermostat out of the housing. Use a piece of emery cloth to clean the face of the thermostat housing and the engine block where the housing is mounted from any remaining gasket material or debris.
  8. Spread a layer of gasket seal around the face of the thermostat housing and place the new thermostat on the housing, with the thermostat spring facing out from the housing. Position the housing back on the engine block and secure it to the block with the bolts.
  9. Replace the pan the sits across the bottom of the engine of your Audi A4 and then refill the radiator with coolant and put the radiator cap back on the radiator. Remove the wood block from the back tire of your vehicle. Turn the engine on and drive the Audi A4 off of the car ramps. Allow the engine to run at idle for a few minutes to verify that the thermostat is working properly and then shut the engine off.
Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

How do i change the oil in my 1994 buick park ave

first you will check your owners manual for the required specification of what weight ( 10w30) oil to use and then the fill capacity.( 5.quarts ) also the auto parts store will tell you those as well. I always buy one extra quart. Once you have oil and filter, warm car up for 3-5 minutes, (this will help oil drain faster and easier) once car is warm shut of motor,block rear wheels jack the front of car up enough to slide under it. BLOCK car or support with jack stands.put a drain pan under car, remove the oil drain plug on the bottom or side of the oil pan.( make sure your catch pan will hold at least 6-7 quarts of fluid. once oil has stopped draining replace drain plug, now remove the oil filter, unscrew counterclockwise, lube new oil filter seal with oil, screw on to oil housing clockwise rotation, hand tighten. fill motor with oil to recommended fill capacity.start car , check for leaks around filter, if no leaks shut car off and lower car to ground, check oil on dipstick and wipe off,insert and check again,fill to fill line on dipstik and your done.

I need to know how to change the transimission filter on a 1996 ford thunderbird v8. Or at lest where to find a diagram on how to do it

Copied from


See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  3. Loosen the pan attaching bolts and drain the fluid from the transmission.

Always place used fluids and oils into a sealed storage container and take to an approved recycling collection facility. Never dump used fluids or oils on the ground or in a trash receptacle. Contamination to the environment can and will occur.
  1. When the fluid has drained to the level of the pan flange, remove the remaining pan bolts working from the rear and both sides of the pan to allow it to drop and drain slowly.

Some AOD transmissions will have a plastic plunger type plug floating loosely in the pan when draining the fluid. It is of no importance and was used in the assembly process of the transmission. Discard it before reinstallation of pan.
  1. When all of the fluid has drained, remove the pan and clean it thoroughly. discard the pan gasket. If equipped, remove the pan magnet.

0900c1528006bc40.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 1: Unfasten the remaining bolts, then remove the transmission fluid pan from the vehicle

0900c1528006bc41.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: On some vehicles, such as this 1995, you must remove and clean the pan magnet
To install:
  1. Place a new gasket on the pan, then install the pan on the transmission. If equipped, don't forget to install the pan magnet. Tighten the pan attaching bolts as follows:

    C3 and C5 Transmissions: 12-16 ft. lbs. (16-22 Nm) A4LD Transmissions: 8-10 ft. lbs. (11-13.5 Nm) AOD Transmissions: 71-119 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm) 4R70W Transmissions: 9-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm)
  2. Add the correct type and quantity of fluid to the transmission through the filler tube.
  3. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and move the gear selector through shift pattern. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
  4. Check the transmission fluid. Add fluid, if necessary, to maintain correct level.


See Figure 3
  1. Remove the transmission oil pan and drain the fluid. For details, please refer to the procedure located earlier in this section.
  2. Remove the screen and the filter from the valve body. Most screens are retained using a fastener; through some may use an interference fit between the screen tube and valve body.

0900c1528006bc42.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 3: After the pan is removed, you can remove the transmission fluid filter
To install:
  1. Install a new filter using a new gasket or O-ring.

If the transmission uses a filter equipped with a fully exposed screen, it may be cleaned and reused.
  1. Install the transmission oil pan and properly refill the transmission.

    How do you do a oil change on a 2005 dodge neon sxt

    After getting all oil,oil filter and oil catch pan if I havent bought one, I warm my vehicle for a few min to get teh oil flowable. then raise the front end and locate the drain plug on the oil pan. Place an oil catch pan (5-8.00 @ most stores) under the oil pan and carefully remove the drain plug. I then lower the vehicle and wait till all oil is removed. Raise the vehicle tehn replace oil drain plug and tighten, careful not to over tighten, then slid the oil catch pan under the oil filter and remove the oil filer, some oil will spill here so rubber gloves and papper towels come in handy for this part. Lay the old oil filter on the oil catch pan to allow the old oil to drain while relacing with new oil filter. I rub a thin film of oil on the rubber seal of the oil filter before threading back onto the engine. lower vehicle and add new oil as needed. start vehicel then check for any leaks then shut off engine and check oil level and add more if needed. I then poor the oil oil in the empty oil container so I can drop off at wal mart or other oil recycling center.

    Warm the engine to ensure maximum oil drainage. Steady the bike on a stand or secure jack, as close to level as possible. Ensure the availability of a pan that can contain at least three litres of oil, with enough extra room to lift and move the pan. Slide the catch pan under the center of the oil pan, and remove the large oil drain plug from the center of the oil pan. If the catch pan is large enough to reach the oil filter, loosen the filter at the same time to allow better flow. Once the oil has finished draining from the plug hole, replace the plug and torque to setting. Remove the oil filter. Apply a film of oil to the gasket of a new filter, and install the new filter as per the manufacturer recommend tightness as listed on the package. Remove the oil filler plug on the left side of the engine case and pour 3 litres of 10W40 or 20W50 (depending on climate). Replace the oil filler plug.
