Hello, oil to use in the engine depends on engine if it is a Kohler you will want to use 10w30 approx 2qts. The Briggs & Stratton engines use HD30 or SAE30 approx 1.5qts. Use the dip stick to ensure you have the right amount and don't over fill.

To change the oil:

  • run engine about 10 minutes to warm up oil so it flows better
  • at the bottom of the dip stick there is either a valve or plug
  • open the valve or plug and let the oil drain (I use an old gallon oil container with a funnel) leave the dip stick out
  • while the oil drains; change the spin on oil filter
  • once all the old oil has drained replace the plug or close the valve
  • wipe down the funnel and use it to refill the new oil
  • use the dip stick to ensure proper fill level
I also recommend that you replace the air filter at the same time, if the engine can't get air is can't run efficiently.

If this is helpful please vote yes, Thank You!!

How do i oil my 3********** machine


Follow the instructions in your owner's manual. If it is a computerized machine, it should be oiled only as instructed.

Be sure to use fresh good quality sewing machine oil recommended in the manual.

If it is a mechanical machine, the instructions in the manual are the minimum oiling. Older mechanical machines will sometimes need a couple drops of oil every place that metal rubs against metal. Do NOT oil belts, synthetic parts, cams. AND do NOT over oil unless you want to be wiping up excess oil! A drop of oil on the hook/shuttle every 8 hours of use. Thorough oiling as described above, every 40 hours of use. If in storage or not in frequent use, every six months.

Does a 2011 caddyTDi250 1.6 ltr need the gearbox oil changed when the vehicle has its regular service?its 5 speed manual gearbox,and is there a filter to be changed?


No but check with the dealer or your service/owner manual for the manufacturer recommended gearbox oil change periods.
There is no filter on the manual gearbox .
Whatever the manufacturer recommended period is for a gearbox oil change, change the gearbox oil twice as frequently as recommended to maintain it in good condition. If, for example, a change every 50000 miles is stipulated then do it every 25000 or so.

How to change oil pump


Changing the oil pump is not easy, the oil pump is situated in the engine oil sump. So you have to go under the car and remove the oil sump pan to get at it. First you have to drain the oil. I recommend you buy a repair manual such as Haynes from a auto parts shop for about $15 before you start the job and follow the instructions in the manual. Good luck

Should I have the oil in transmission changed?


I would not go by the oil change company recommendation.
It's much better to go by the car manufacturer's recommendation. Look in your owner's manual for the recommended time/mileage to change the transmission oil and filter.
