SOURCE: oil filter location?

the oil filter is on top of the engine bay, it is under a plastic screw on cover towards the drivers side front of the engine next to the intake manifold, if there is a cover on the engine you might need to take it off to see it, the filter clips on to the back plastic screw on cover. it requires a large socket size to remove.

You may have to go to the dealership and get the Service Bulletin on this one. Sometimes the owner's manual is NOT correct. You may see what the Dealership charges to reprogram BUT... I'd bet it is at least $75. This is USUALLY a simple task. Maybe try it again a couple of times before you head to the Dealership. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again". I've had to do this 4-5 times before it would reprogram on similar cars.... DOUBLE CHECK the battery in the remote for voltage. You might want to replace it anyway. That way you won't have to go thru this when the battery in the remote dies... In a 6 year old car, it's about at the end of its life cycle.

SOURCE: how much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt

If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

SOURCE: reset change oil light

hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:

  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

What is the oil capacity of Mazda 3 2008


I have same car and i ussually put 4 liters on it when im doing change oil.

Oil capacity


for the 2008 mazda 3 (2004-2008 generation 2.0 to 2.3L)

http://mazda3revolution.com/how-to-guides/how-to-change-oil-mazda-3-23-20/

that link uses 4.25 quarts, to allow some fluid to fill the oil filter
usually, with a canister filter, i pour some inside as well as lubricate the oil ring before spinning it on ~ that way the paper element has been "pre-charged" pre-soaked with oil before you start it up for the first time
if you have the other style filter where the oil filter is just the paper element, i'd make sure to properly torque that cap to specs & not over-tighten it ~ it's made of plastic!

http://www.mazdausa.com/MusaWeb/pdf/manuals/2008_Mazda3_OM.pdf

your owners manual only states the amount of oil needed between the minimum line to the maximum line on the dipstick when just checking the fluid level

page 8-20 says ~ .8 quart when it's low to fill it up to the max ~ line

another site states ~4.5 quarts

as long as it's in between the 2 stated capacities, and you re-check the fluid level, you're good to go ~ just dont put the full 5 quarts in it!

99 grand prix liquid capacities? coolant and oil


Get the premixed antifreeze inwhich no measuring is involved, just pour it in. if using the old concetrated stuff add 1.6 gallons of coolant then the rest bottled water. Tap water has minerals in it which rot the radiator's core out quicker. The engine oil is 4.5 quarts with filter

How much fluid do i need for my 2001 potiac grand am se 4 cylinder


It has a capacity of 5 quarts of SAE 5W30 oil with filter change. The cooling system capacity is 2 3/4 gallon of a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. The 40T40E transmission/torque converter holds a total capacity of 12.9 quarts or 6.9 quarts to just drain the pan and replace the fluid.

Oil capacity of 2002 grand prix


Right around 4 3/4 quarts. Use an AC Delco filter. There is a difference and this will prevent low oil pressure.

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix uses oil between oil changes and has a black carbon type ring around the exhaust pipe opening. Pontiac dealer told me it's normal for a 3800 V-6 to use a quart of oil in a thousand...


it is not normal for that engine to use that much oil. i know of another grand prix like yours that lost the engine and the dealer had to replace it. something is wrong with that engine. maybe talk to another gm dealer. good luck
