Oil filter change


the amount of oil to refill the sump will be the regular amount plus 1/2 pint for the new filter. You will need to know the sump capacity ( from a owners hand book for your engine)

Cannot find manual for 98 rodeo 3.2 4x4 and need to know engine oil capacity. auto zone said 4.5 qt. did that and now oil level is really high on dipstick, just need to know capacity


Hi there. 4 qt's for motor.5 for filter.There are 4 ways to fix this. # 1.If your oil filter is in vertical position,remove it with a band tool and drain it or replace it with new filter.Use new oil for gasket and make sure old gasket isn't stuck on motor.Please use 3 ton jack stands to support car on the frame. # 2.Use a box end wrench to loosen oil drain nut and loosen a little at a time until the oil stops dripping and turns in to a stream,close it once in a while and check level.If you don't know how many threads are on the plug best to let it drip. # 3.11935_f.jpgbuy a dip stick oil changer and change oil with a tube down the dipstick tube.This one comes from a marine supply and is a bit pricey at $70.00 + tax but is safer than under the car work.Called a big boy. Auto parts store will have these tools as well,some will drain your transmission and then you can change the filter with out all the mess.(filter is inside the transmission pan,no drain plug)..........Thank You for choosing FixYa.

Hey I have a 2002 Volkswagon turbo and I have it booked for a service I'n 2 weeks but my Bf checked the oil n there's next to nothing left it's nearly burnt ... Is it ok if I go to the servo and buy normal...


use any oil it will not hurt its better than no oil at all either sythetic or natural they will mix and buy the cheapest you can from the supermarket ,so called long lifew oils are a waste of money use the cheapest oil you can buy and change it every 6000miles with a oil filter every third oil change

What kind of oil can i use in my 1999 gs 300 is synthetic oil better or jus use regular oil which do u perfer?


Synthetic oil is better than carbon based oil because it is cleaner,lasts longer,more efficient & wont leave carbon build up like conventional oil. But if you ran regular oil for quite awhile, your engine will have carbon build up. Synthetic oil breaks up the buildup. That is good. Bad thing is sometimes that buildup is keeping you from leaking or burning oil. If you switch to synthetic oil keep an eye on oil consumption. If you start using or leaking it out of gaskets or seals, you will need to get it out & put in regular oil. If not, you can go longer between oil changes & your engine will run more efficiently for a longer period of time.

My car has 140,000 kms hw often do i need an oil changeits a 1997 honda civic


To keep it simple: Your car should have used synthetic oil originally:

If you are using Regular Motor Oil - I found through many years of doing oil changes & auto repairs that 3000 miles is the MAX you should drive before changing. After that it tends to lose it's protective qualities & you can actually feel the difference (once you've removed a few thousand dipsticks) in the viscosity.

Synthetic Lubricant- Higher Quality Products will make your car last longer & I can suggest no better improvement to anyones vehicle than to use Synthetic Oil. Change at 6000-7500 miles depending on type driving. City, Idling a lot, hard driving = 6000 & Cruising/highway regular speeds=7500.

Always make sure your air filter is clean & a new Oil filter is installed each time as this will keep the new oil clean longer which provides better lubrication & performance. Some car Mfgs say to skip oil filter change & do every other but I like the results I have rec'd with changing it each time. It also helps to keep the new oil cleaner by not mixing in the dirty oil that is in the filter & associated piping.

If your car is running well, stick with the 5W30 that was recommended as Honda engines are extremely close tolerance. If it has used regular motor oil & is a little noisy, during the warmer weather you could step up to a 10w40 or even better a 15W50 in the summer, preferably Synthetic. Better fuel economy, acceleration & less wear & tear.

Finally: 140K should earn you a badge. That's just a well broken in Honda if it's been well maintained and you should expect much more service from it. I hope that this helps. Good luck!

Hi - I wanted to buy oil for my 94 landcruiser and was wondering what kind I should get. The manual recommends 10W30, but I can not find whether it should be synthetic or not?


Of course synthetic is better, but it seems to me that regular oil is fine, and you need to change is often enough to get rid of water and acids, so that you don't really need synthetic.
Personally I also prefer 10W40, because it holds up better on heavy wear, like on the camshaft. But 10W30 gets slightly better mileage.
