How do I remove the plastic cover over the engine on a 3.4 liter 2005 equinox

where the engine oil filter cap, where engine oil is added, if you remove the cap with a quarter turn ccw the plastic pipe that the cap screws into is removed exactly the same way as the fill cap. meaning this pipe is just a 4 inch extension, as if the plastic cover is removed you could throw the plastic tube away and install the oil fill cap directly into the valve cover. once the tube is twisted counter clockwise 90 degrees and lifted up, the plastic cover is able to be removed. when replacing the cover, there is a pin on backside that the cover goes into to keep it from rattling. and dont lose the rubber off the pin on plastic cover as it will rattle and drive you up the wall

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

How full and with what oil to fill pump vent.

Any pressure washer pump should be no more than half full. The reason is if you fill it completely up when the piston strokes it will blow the seals out of the pump. Usually there is a sight gage on the side of the pump. I will look your model up and see what I can find as far as quantity for the pump. I won't be too long just read the 2nd response and please do not rate this one. I will get back to you ASAP.

Car is making a rattling noise when gaining speed. No problems changing gears, however I noticed some leackage under the car and I have been advised that the gearbox might require some oil. Can you advise...

The trans. will have a drain plug on the bottom of case and a fill plug about halfway up on one side of the case. Usually a large socket needed for this, like about 21 mm.
You need to check the owner's manual or with Nissan to see what kind and amount of fluid to use, whether gear oil or what. If it's gear oil, you snip the top of the cap off and use a small hose (like a vacuum hose) over the cap. squeeze the bottle to dispense through the hose into the gearbox. If that is inconvenient or difficult, you might need a cheap hand held plunger type pump.
You fill the box just until fluid starts to ooze out the fil hole. Then put the plug in and done.

On top of the engine you will find a rectangular aluminum cover (it may be bare aluminum or painted flat black). This cover is about 2 feet long and about 5 inches wide. On the top of this cover you will find a round black plastic cap. The cap may have the word OIL on it, or it may has text describing what type of oil to use. Remove this cap by turning it counter clockwise. Pour the oil into the hole the cap covers.
