I am going to change the oil in my car but I don't know what the oil pan looks like. What does it look like? Will I need any special tools? Will the filter just unscrew? Does the oil filter say %26quot;oil filter%26quot; on it? The local autozone will take the oil but what do I take it there in? I don't want to buy any kind of container. How do I get my car up on the ramp things? Any suggestions or tip on changing your own oil is welcome. Thanks!1985 Ford LTD Oil Change?
put the old oil in a milk jug or back in the oil bottles,where the new oil came in.the oil pan is right under the engine and all you need is a big enough pan to catch the oil,and a wrench to fit the drain plug.the oil filter screws up on the engine,under the car.its round and before you put a new one on,take some oil and go around the filter gasket.you also need a filter wrench to take the old filter off,but dont use the wrench to put the new filter on,its only hand tighten.make sure you tighten the drain plug,but not tight enough,you strip the threads or round the head of the plug.you can drive your car upon the ramps,before you start your work.make sure you have plenty of rags.hope this helps you.it sounds difficult,but not really.1985 Ford LTD Oil Change?
With all those questions I would suggest getting a supervisor to help you on your first try. Maybe dad, a older brother or sister, or a friend that has a little experience. An error on this project could cost you an engine.1985 Ford LTD Oil Change?
Have it done at a tire store or jiffy lube. If you have to ask the questions you asked , Don't Touch It1985 Ford LTD Oil Change?
With questions like you just asked, if you wish to change your own oil and filter, get someone to show you how to do it the first time. That way you won't try to change the headlight oil by mistake.1985 Ford LTD Oil Change?
