The fix is to unscrew the drain plug from the oil reservoir. As the oil drains into it, the air inside is displaced and needs to go somewhere. The left over oil from previous drainings has caused the reservoir to become an airtight seal making the oil compete for the trapped air for the space resulting in the much of the oil giving up and draining over the top instead of pushing the air out. Removing the plug allows the air to escape as the oil rushes in. Only problem with this solution...I've now lost my drain plug because I took it out to drain and misplaced it. T-Fal doesn't sell replacement parts and instead I would have to shell out $15 plus shipping for a new reservoir from a 3rd party repair center. For now a paper towel stuck in place of the plug is getting me buy.

How to Change Oil Using the EZ Oil Drain Valve?


Push in on the EZ drain and twist it to lock it open. After all the oil is drained out, twist it again until it pops back closed. Then replace your oil filter and refill your oil.

Can you drain torque converter when changing transmission fluid on a 2004 pontiac vibe


Basicly just remove the bolts in the transmission oil pan, make sure you have a drain pan under it and leave a couple bolts in, loosen the remining bolts and let the oil drain then loosen and remove them slowly as oil will be draining out while you are doing it.

Change the filter and after cleaning the pan install a new gasket and put it back on. Do not tighten the bolts too tight because it will distort the gasket and it will leak.

Pour about 5 quarts of transmission fluid in the trannsmission and start it up, look for leaks, and finish filling it to the cold line on the dip stick. If there are no leaks run until its warmed up and make sure the fluid level is at the full hot line on the stick.

There is really no way to drain the converter.

Change oil filter honda civic 2003


buy new oil filter, oil, and a new drain plug and gasket. the used plug is prone to leakage. remove drain plug and drain in a big enough pan for all the oil. oil filter is located on rear of engine. easier to remove from the bottom of the car. put oil on the seal of the new filter and hand tighten. replace oil plug with new gasket and plug and tighten to 33 foot pound. add oil that is required and start car. when oil light goes out shut car off and check oil add oil as needed.

Chang oil and care of filter of oil


Hi,

How to change Oil>>
Step 1.
Put the bike and your tools in a convenient place. Raise the bike onto its kickstand in a clear area that can get a little dirty. Gather your new oil, tools, rags and drain pan in one place so you don't have to run to get a tool in the middle of the oil change. 
Step 2.
Find the drain plug and filler cap. Before you begin to work, make sure the engine is not hot, though it should be slightly warm. Remove the filler cap so that the oil settles to the bottom of the can and can be properly drained. 
Step 3.
Place your drain pan underneath the bike's drain plug. You can use a flat piece of metal, or even a piece of cardboard, to channel the oil into the drain pan. 
Step 4.
Use a socket wrench to open the drain plug. Open the plug slowly so any built-up pressure can diffuse. Keep an eye on the oil's flow so you can catch as much of it as possible with the drain pan. 
Step 5.
Change the oil filter. While this is not strictly necessary, it's a good idea to take the time to change the bike's oil filter. Locate the oil filter using the motorcycle's manual and replace it with a new one.
Step 6.
Replace the drain plug and refill the oil. Make sure the drain plug is securely fastened and then pour fresh oil into the tank, using the amount of oil that is specified by the bike's manual.

>>After 5000 kms you need to change the filter. Oil brand is a matter of preference as oil and filter is really a cheap price to pay so that your engine will last and last.

please rate this solution.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Leaks near filter


It may be the drain pump that is leaking, you can open the back panel of the unit and figure out if it is so by checking the drain pump for leakage just when the pump starts to work.
