When removing the drain plug you can apply a slight amount of inwards pressure when you get the end. You should be able to feel the bolt be completely free of the pan but the pressure will keep the oil from draining. Quickly move the plug away and you won't get oil on yourself or splash it on the underside of your car or drive way.
Hey ChrisFix or anybody who can answer this! I have a question. The car that I'm going to an oil change on a 1999 Toyata Corolla and the mileage is over 200,000. should I still use a recommended oil that the car Manuel tells me or get a different kind of oil?
Ok so just some constructive criticism, But filling up the oil filter will not hurt the vehicle unless it has a massive oil filter (look up a 7.3 Powerstroke oil filter thats one you wanna fill up a bit.) On a small car like the Nissan the oil moves so fast it will not affect anything. Also fill it up 1/4 to 1/2 it makes it a bit easier if its on the bottom to screw in and not spill.
Also you dont wanna let the motor sit since you wanna know if its enough oil while the oil is still in the block. If you check the oil while the engine is warn and has not been sitting. DO NOT fill it up to the full line since oil is inside the motor already and you will be over filling. just small tips and constructive criticism.
Lay down some cardboard or a plastic sheet on the ground to prevent oil getting on the driveway.
When undoing the drain plug, hold on to it tightly. Or else it might fall into the pan from the oil spraying it.
Thanks Chris, you alone have helped me out more as a young budding man than my father ever did. No shade on him, though, we maintain a healthy relationship after it's all been said and done. But I really want you to know how much you've helped me to be independent and car-savy. Will be changing my oil later on today after work. Thanks.
Hey Chris, I'm changing my oil for the first time so,i want to ask you about the tightening torque for the drain plug. The manual says 35Nm and i don't have a torque wrench. How much should i tighten it? (in simple words) :D
Old video but here's a tip, if you can't get the oil filter off because you forgot to buy the tool or the tool keeps slipping, you get a big long screwdriver, put the tip against the side of the oil filter and hit it with a hammer, just keep hitting it, eventually the screwdriver pierces through the oil filter and out the other side, now you can use the screwdriver as leverage to turn the oil filter.
Warning though, it's a lot messier than the video.
So my car calls for 5.5 quarts of full synthetic but I’m adding a full quart of Lucas oil stabilizer which advises to put 1 quart for 4 quarts of oil so would I add only 4.50 of synthetic and then the 1 quart of Lucas oil stablizer ?
Hey Chris, thanks for the video. I have two questions, firstly what would happen if you ran the engine with no oil whatsoever. And secondly, do you need to replace the oil filter every time and why? Thank you.
When using a breaker bar, to ensure you don't snap the bolt by putting too much force through the bar when loosening or tightening, put some tape half way along the handle and use that as your hand position. This will half the amount of force applied to the bolt. If this isn't enough, then move you hand position toward the breaker bar hand grip and try again... it's not a fool proof method to protect your bolts... but you'll have far less breakages due to using too much force on a stuck fast bolt.
50 bucks for oil change at shops. its gonna take me more time/money to DIY it. 2 hrs to drive to and from, 1 hr to prepare and setup 30 minutes to complete it. 30 minutes to clean up. etc
plus the tools.
Hi from South Africa. I have a toyota hilux with 230 000 km on the clock. I recently have not been using it much and only doing 4000km a year. I now run castrol full synthetic oil. Can I do an oil change every two years? Its a diesel engine.
Doing my first oil change after watching this video! However i accidentally bought oil that says its be desinged for turbocharged engines. Its the right oil viscosity, but does that notation mean i shouldn t use it if I dont have a turbocharged engine?
Quick tip, I own a mechanic shop in New Orleans and have found that a lot of inexperienced people tend to strip their drain plugs when using socket wrenches. I always recommend closed end wrenches to people doing their own oil changes because they are less likely to round off the plug. I strictly use them in my shop unless it is not feasible. Just something to think about.
And what to do with the oil filter? Will they (garage, auto parts store) accept it too? Thank you.
I personally prefer to go to the dealership - it's not expensive to change the oil there, you don't need to handle the waste oil, plus they do a free multi-point inspection of your car and you get a free car wash. :) If I'll do it myself the cost of the tools needed will be way more then the cost of the oil change at the dealer (your race ramps alone cost 300+$).
