Transmission oil change


I take it you are talking auto transmission. Un do the drain plug in the box sump or if you do not have one remove the sump. replace filter in the sump . replace the sump with a new gasket and refill the sump. IF there is nothing wrong with the transmission and you only want to change the oil the best practice is to take it to a auto transmission shop where they can change the oil with the engine running and this changes the oil in the torque converter as well giving you a complete oil change. IT is more expensive as more oil is used but it changes all the oil and not just a part of the system. If your are talking manual, then remove the drain plug in the bottom of the gear box and when all the oil is out replace the plug tightly and remove the filler plug in the side of the box. Add oil until it runs out of the filler hole and when it stops replace the filler plug tightly. Use the correct grade of oils in both cases.

Mazda 6 problems 2006 when i start the car it makes a ticking noise but after warming up it go's


what you may need is only a high mileage oil change only.you should be using a castrol [in cold weather only] 30weight oil. i suggest a fram oil filter. i also suggest you use lucas oil treatment in with the oil change. your vehicle holds a 5quart oil change right? use 4 quarts of castrol oil and 1 quart of lucas oil treatment in with it that leaves one quart out.add the fram oil filter. if you are a do it your selfer you know what i mean. if not, do this,do not go to wal-mart,or a quick oil change place. use a local garage that you can trust. buy your supplies in advance, at autozone or advance auto,nappa auto, or wherever you trust for the best buy.all you need to pay for is labor only for oil change but demand they use your supplies and watch them to insure they do! the oil change is regular,but the lucas will cost $10.00 more on top of the oil change.you can get a DEAL on fast track oil change,yeah right! do this once, and you will never use fast track again!you will get top engine lubrication which will remove that clatter. you will also gat 10.000 more miles between oil changes! you get what you pay for right? i have a 1994 ford explorer with over 400.000 miles on it now. just trying to see it i can go a million miles with it.i do my oil change every 45.000 miles. with no oil added in between oil changes.change your oil,use 30weight castrol oil in winter,use 40weight castrol in summer usea fram oil filter, the chatter will go away when you first start it. your engine will be lubricated well and you will be happy not hearing the chatter during the first start. thank you for choosing fixya.com we are always here!

How often should oil be changed ?


That depends on the brand and type of synthetic you use, as well as the type of oil filter. Mobil 1 makes an extended service full synthetic, which they claim is good for 15,000 miles between changes. Amsoil full synthetic advertises 25,000 miles between changes; but only if you also install and use one of their super fine bypass oil filters, in addition to your car's regular oil filter.

Since the actual mileage you can go between oil changes is very dependent of the type of driving you do, the brand of oil you use, and the condition of your engine; there really is no hard and fast rule. That's why commercial vehicle fleets regularly take samples of their oil, and send it to laboratories for analysis to determine whether it needs changing. Sometimes it is necessary to change oil more often than expected; other times you can go longer between changes. My experience has been that, when oil is nearing the mileage where it needs changing; the rate of consumption will significantly increase. So when my car needs a quart added, it usually means it ought to be changed.

Regardless of the oil you use; if the change intervals are longer than the car manufacturers recommendations, it will void your factory engine warranty. That said; I have typically felt comfortable with 7,500 mile change intervals when using full synthetic oil of an appropriate viscosity.

I would also add that it is much safer to stay with only one brand and type of oil for the life of your vehicle; this is true for both conventional and synthetic oils. I have seen too many engines ruined by switching to a different brand or type of oil. Mobil 1 is chemically different from all the other synthetic oils, and is closer to petroleum oil in its characteristics. I prefer it for that reason. They also make a european formula 0W-40 full synthetic, which is available in the U.S, and is my preferred viscosity for all around use. It is not one of their extended service oils; but the protection is far superior to other oil grades. Not all stores carry it; but it can often be ordered from stores which carry other Mobil 1 products; and can always be bought from the local Mobil oil distributor.

Tapping sound from engine


Maybe from lack of oil changes or over rev of engine.
Go to the auto parts store and buy good oil and filter and get a can of Marvel Mystery Oil (red can) and make sure the engine is 1 quart low on oil. Pour the Marvel in with your oil and let the engine idle for up to 2 hours.Then do an oil and filter change. The Marvel is a heavy detergent that will clean up your engine and wash most of the dirt into your old oil filter.Be nice to your engine!

How to change the oil


The oil filter should be under the mid section of the engine. It is located in a cylindrical canister approximately four (4) inches in diameter and seven (7) inches long. Remove the bolt holding it onto the engine and the filter is inside. Purchase the filter first from your local auto parts store, about $7 and it will help you identify the shape of the casing it is located in. Not to bad a change but I found that with the cost of oil, disposal fee, and filter that it was actually less expensive to let Goodyear do it. Before taking it in for the change, call ahead and ask if they're running the special on oil changes. Even if they're not, they'll more likely then not quote the sale price to get your business. Works every time for me. $19.50.

My oil filter is leaking and it is tight


If anyone else has this problem, I'm betting its your oil filter adapter gasket. Of course check to see if the problem is just a bad oil filter seal but mine was not. The oil filter adapter is like 10 - $15 at Auto Zone or Napa. If you feel you can't do the job yourself then take it to the auto repair shop. It's only four bolts and change out the gasket but you must drain the coolant cause the water run through the same housing and it's kind of a pain to get to on the vehicle. Napa gasket p/n is 70801
