See Tina's answer above. Also.....
Once a year or more frequent in steady use, the 'C' clip in the drive head should be removed along with the gear guts and a small amount of very thin air tool grease (not oil), should be wiped onto all the parts and re-assembled. This procedure is better done by professional tool repair centre's.

Squeeze 4-5 drops of pneumatic tool oil into the air fitting daily. If you use the tool all day, repeat the process half-way through the day. If you don't use the tool very often, just oil it when the tool is used.

Where to find oil filter

It probably is located under a plastic cap with a hex nut on it. This cap is located on the engine near the radiator. The filter has no metal casing. Your engine is the metal casing. You need to purchase a special socket at a auto parts store to remove the cap. Make note of how the filter position is so that you place the new filter back in properly and not upside down. Place a new o ring on the plastic cap with a small amount of oil. Screw the cap back on by hand as far as you can to prevent the plastic threads from stripping. Then use the socket with ratchet to tighten. Do not over tighten the cap.

How to replace oil pressure switch 1999 pontiac bonneville

it is a long sensor with a special fitting, you can get the oil sending unit socket at your local parts store that attaches to a ratchet, it is a little tricky to reach, you have to try different size extensions to get the best reach.
it just turns counter clockwise to remove and clockwise to tighten.

The oil cap on my car will not open. is there a special way to twist the cap? all i get is a wratchet sound while turning it but it won't open.


most modern cars have a ratchet on the filler caps to prevent overtightening (oil and fuel)
it should only click when you turn it clockwise.
when you turn it anticlockwise, it should not click, but if it has not been removed in some time it could be very tight.

if it clicks both ways, then the ratchet is probably broken and the cap may have to be carefully broken off making sure not to drop any parts into the engine, and replaced

I need to grease or oil my rear axel on my 1983 silverado and don't know where to put the oil or grease... It's a automatic

It depends on which rear end is in your truck. There may be a plug about half way up the back cover on the differential, or it may be on the front passenger side of the rear end. The plug will come out using a 3/8 drive ratchet. Make sure you use a screwdriver or something to clean the hole out before you try to turn it. If you don't get it clean then the ratchet will slip and round the corners of the plug and then it isn't coming out.
Add your oil until it starts to leak out the plug hole. Then it is full and put the plug back in. You need to know if you have a limited slip differential or not. Limited slip takes special oil. Regular rear ends take 80-90 gear oil. Hope this helps.
