    Assuming that you need to go to the parts store for the oil, I would ask them to show you the schematic that reveals the location of the oil fill port. Also, they can tell you what is the best oil to use for that engine and climate. Make sure you change the filter too.

10w30 will be fine on any broken in engine. The first 10000 miles 5w30 is recommended. On the very bottom side of the engine's oil pan will be the bolt to remove to drain the oil

High oil warning ml350


Check the oil on the dipstick. If it is high, it may be contaminated with gas or coolant. You can smell if it is gas. If it is coolant, it will look milky brown color. That would point to a head gasket problem.

If the oil looks good and not contaminated, but still high, drain enough out the drain plug until oil is at proper level, or just go ahead and drain all the oil so it can be looked at at for contamination. Because if jiffy lube put too much in, you are right, the light should have come on sooner. The whirring noise could very well be from a high oil level, so look into all possibilities. If oil is not too high, it could be just a sensor problem-but it doesn't sound like it. Good luck.

How do i change transmission fluild an filter


Hi J, Clean the whole area around the drain plug and oil pan. Drain the fluid from the drain plug at the lowest point of the gearbox oil pan. When drained into the required receptacle, remove all bolts around the oil pan and drop it. The oil filter is located inside and held in place by fixing bolts. Remove those and replace the filter. This job requires the utmost cleanliness, and no contamination should be allowed to get inside the gearbox. Refit oil pan using a new gasket and refill gearbox to required level. Always check the gearbox level with the engine running, the selector in neutral and the park brake fully engaged. Regards John

My car has a ticking sound, i went to have my oil changed and the guy said that there was too much oil, the oil light is on and will not go off, i am afraid to drive my care because i don't know what the...


The water in the oil means there is a blown head gasket or a cracked head (from overheating). Unfortunately this is a major repair. I would not drive it as you could cause further damage. Take the car to a mechanic that you trust or one that a friend recommends.

1999 durango 4x4 front differrential some how blows fluid out the vent line & all over the place.


The symptoms you describe appears to be Water contamination of the Diff. casing.
Take the vehicle for a run to the Auto store, and purchase 4x 1quart bottles of either 85/140 Heavy Duty gear Oil, or 75/90 Synthetic, whichever is currently in the system.
Come home and drain the diff. and the drive hubs when the oil is HOT/ WARM, until it stops dripping. Inspect the drain plug for metal debris, and feel inside the diff, with the little finger.[ don't get it stuck]. If everything is ok, refit the plug, remove the level plug and refill, until the oil just trickles out, then refit the plug.
On the hubs, rotate the wheel until the Drain/Level plug is facing down to empty. To refill to the correct level, face the D/L plug hole upwards, fill1/2 pint of similar oil as the diff, into the fill hole, and rotate the wheel 90 degrees, if no oil runs out, add oil sparingly, and repeat the process until it does. The Fr. and Rr diffs would normally be oil changed at the same time, including the 4wd, Transfer box.
Check your User Manual for the Total amount of oil that you will require to complete the project.
This should cure your problem.
Regards, David

How do I change my oil on my 98 ford escort zx2


Try this.

On level ground, jack up the front of the car and support it with axle stands.

Get an open container that will take more than 5 ltrs.

Under the engine block you will find the sump.

On the sump you should find a 13mm nut, this is the drain plug.

Undo the drain plug and have the empty container directly below the sump plug.

Retain the sump plug and clean it with a rag.

When the oil has drained out of the sump, put back the plug making sure the washer is in good condition and the plug is tight.

Now unscrew the oil filter having the old oil container below the filter housing to catch any oil.

Wipe around the the filter housing to remove any and all old oil.

Now offer up the new oil filter but do not tighten.

If the new filter fits the oil filter housing, then remove it and lightly oil the rubber seal on the filter with clean oil.

Now refit the filter and tighten it up. Not too tight, you can do this by hand but get it as tight as you can.

Now lower the car to to the ground.

At the top of the engine you will find an oil filler cap. Undo this cap.

Now put in the new oil to just below the full mark on the dip stick. Let the oil drain through the engine to the sump for a couple of minutes before checking the oil level.

If the level is between 1/2 and full, replace the filler cap and start the engine.

Now look at the oil filter and the sump plug for any leaks. Also check around the oil filler cap for oil leaks and spillage.

With the engine turned off. Clean any oil spillages and tighten up the oil filter, sump and oil filler cap as required.

Now leave the oil to drain back to the sump for a few minutes.

Check the oil level and top up as required.

I find that it is best to top the oil up to just below the Max mark.

This should solve the problem.
