OIL CHANGING MADE EASY
By Steven Scoleri
Changing the oil in your car every three thousand miles is about the single most important maintenance item you can do for your automobile. It\'s really very easy, takes about forty minutes, saves money and hassle over taking the car to someone else, and you have the satisfaction of knowing it was done correctly.
WHAT YOU\'LL NEED
* Oil drain pan
* Ratchet drive (3/8" is a good size)
* 3" ratchet extension
* A 3/8" driven socket (proper size obtained from owners manual of the particular car)
* A rubber mallet
* Filter wrench designed to fit the end of the oil filter
* A Bright flashlight, or a fluorescent shop light
* A floor jack or the jack that was provided with car
* Two jack stands
* Rags, paper towels, old newspapers, or clean disposable diapers
* A plastic funnel
* A grease pencil
* Oil (type and amount depending on car, see owners manual)
* A new aluminum drain bolt gasket
* An empty gallon plastic milk jug, possibly two
* Some automotive hand cleaner
* Some type of coveralls or drop cloth for staying clean while crawling under the car
NOTE: Please read the owners manual of the particular car before proceeding, basic knowledge of the vehicle is required.
Warm the oil by running the engine for several minutes. If the car has just been on the road, wait about an hour before starting this procedure to avoid contacting hot engine parts and hot oil. Warm oil is desirable, hot oil is not. Set the parking brake and/or chock the rear wheels to prevent car from rolling. Raise the hood and remove the oil filler cap on the valve cover (see owners manual). Place the jack under the correct jacking point (see owners manual) usually just aft of the front wheel under the car\'s frame. Using the jack, raise one side of the car enough to place a jack stand under the frame. Lower the jack gently until the car rests on the jack stand. Repeat the procedure for the other side of the car and remove the jack. You car is now safely supported by fixed jack stands.
WARNING: NEVER GET UNDER THE CAR IF IT IS ONLY SUPPORTED BY A JACK!
There should now be plenty of clearance to slide some old newspapers and an oil drain pan underneath the car. Locate oil pan drain bolt, (see owners manual) usually obvious. Use the ratchet, and socket to remove the oil pan drain bolt to allow used oil to drain into the pan. Remember turn bolt counter clockwise to loosen and clockwise to tighten. You may find it necessary to gently tap the ratchet handle with the rubber mallet to break loose the drain bolt. Have some paper towels with you under the car to wipe your hands or clean up drips. After the oil is completely drained, then replace/tighten the drain bolt. Be sure to use a new aluminum, deformable gasket when replacing the oil pan drain bolt. Do not use "gorilla" torque on the bolt. Use moderate torque (22-30 ft-lb.) on the ratchet with one hand, then finish with couple light taps on the ratchet handle with the rubber mallet. Wipe up any oil drips/smears with paper towels, remove the newspapers and drain pan full of used oil.
Locate oil filter, (see owners manual) usually in an obscure location, difficult to reach. Sometimes you can access the filter from under the hood rather than under the car. You can remove/replace the oil filter while the oil is draining out below, thus saving some time. Be sure to use plenty of old rags/newspaper/paper towels/diapers below the filter. Using your filter wrench attached to the 3" extension and ratchet, break the filter loose. Then set the tools aside and spin off the filter by hand. Keep the open end of the filter pointed upwards as you lift it out of the engine compartment to minimize oil spillage. Temporarily place the old filter in the box from the new filter and set it aside.
Apply a thin film of new oil or grease to the gasket of the new filter. Using a clean rag, carefully wipe off the oil filter mating surface on the engine (do not leave any lint or foreign matter on this surface).
NOTE: Sometimes gasket from the old filter sticks to the engine,

ACID RAINACID RAIN When fossil fuels such as coal, gasoline, and fuel oils are burned, they emit oxides of sulfur, carbon, and nitrogen into the air. These oxides combine with moisture in the air to form sulfuric acid, carbonic acid, and nitric acid. When it rains or snows, these acids are brought to Earth in what is called acid rain. During the course of the 20th century, the acidity of the air and acid rain have come to be recognized as a leading threat to the stability and quality of the Earth's envir
Problems Caused By Air PollutionProblems Caused By Air Pollution Some people think that air pollution is not harming the earth or the people, but it is doing worse, by killing the earth and getting people sick. Air pollutants, according to Gay, are known to cause respiratory diseases, cancer, and other serious illnesses (12). Air pollution not only threatens the health and life of humans but also causes damage to the environment (Gay 13). First, air pollution causes a great deal of health problems.

Our Radiant Planet- Depletion of the Ozone LayerOur Radiant Planet- Depletion of the Ozone Layer Ozone is a relatively unstable form of molecular oxygen containing three oxygen atoms produced when upper-atmosphere oxygen molecules are split by ultra violet light. Stratospheric ozone is found in a broad band, extending generally from 15 to 35km above the earth. Although the ozone layer is surprisingly thin, it acts as a protective shield to the earth, as it filters out most of the harmful solar ultraviolet radiation (in particular UV-B) that w

It is essential at every level of business and industry, being used in advertising, documentation, photojournalism, and many other ways. Scientific research, ranging from
The Ecology of a Rain Forest The Ecology of a Rain Forest In 1980, the estimated amount of rain forests in the world was 40,000 square miles. This number decreases each year by roughly 1,000 square miles due to construction and the resources being used for profit. It is too bad, because the rain forest is one of the most beautiful places on earth. It is the most diverse, containing the most species of living things, much more than anywhere else, and most have yet to be identified. All rain forests are located on earth's g

As long as the human race has been cultivating the soil we have had to As long as the human race has been cultivating the soil, we have had to deal with other vegetation that ends up competing with the crops. People have tried many methods to get rid of these pesky weeds but they always seem to come back. This eventually led to development of pesticides and herbicides. Herbicides allowed people to kill off the unwanted weeds. Over time these herbicides became more and more specialized allowing them to only harm certain weeds as needed such as broad leaf killers. O

Similarly, it is my belief that we are more knowledgeable about our earth's environment than did previous generations. I do not believe it would be an understatement to say that the planet earth is in serious jeopardy--from the shrinking rain forests, to the polluting of the oceans and land, to the ozone layer problem. Nevertheless, for purposes of this discussion, it is my intent to focus on pesticides as one particularly ramp

This kind of pollution may also be suspended in fog or deposited in a dry form. Acid rain is most common in North America and Europe. Acid rain has also been detected in other areas of the world such as tropical rain forests of Africa. Canada has placed limitations on the sulfur emissions. The United States has not, so the emissions may stil

One area where tobacco smoking is costly is health care. Smokers often seek medical care because of the negative effects cigarettes have on the human body.

Since the formation of the United States to the present date the crime Since the formation of the United States to the present date, the crime rate and the rights of the accused have greatly increased, while the rights of the law-abiding citizen have decreased. To more fully protect society, and to attempt to reduce the crime rate, we must therefor increase the power the law enforcement agencies have. The most logical place to start would be the search and seizure laws, for they inhibit the power to stop trouble at its source. The Fourth Amendment is quoted thus:
INTRODUCTIONINTRODUCTION: Photosynthesis is the process by which chlorophyll-containing organisms-green plants, algae, and some bacteria capture energy in the form of light and convert into chemical energy (Microsoft Encarta, 1995). The chlorophyll found in plants is essential to the process of photosynthesis, as it absorbs light energy. Once it captures light energy in the violet and red portions of the spectrum, it transforms it into chemical energy through a series of reactions (Microsoft Encarta, 1995).

Smoking in the Dorms Smoking in the Dorms Iowa State has the job of accommodating all the students while hopefully fulfilling their expectations of comfort. A controversial issue for students living in the dorms is smoking and the people it affects. At ISU the department of residence does offer halls where smoking is permitted, but the problems come from the students that don’t smoke and have to put up with it on a regular basis. It also may be possible that a person who does smoke is prohibited from doing so. Some

Smoking can cause many diseases and contain many chemicals that can cause cancer known as carcinogens. So should cigarette companies be able to advertise something that directly causes death?

Abstract Abstract The purpose of this experiment was to familiarize students with the concepts of vibrations, wave spectra, and frequency filters. LabVIEW was used in this experiment to visualize electromagnetic waveforms. By the end of the experiment, students were able to determine the frequencies and harmonics of the audible sound spectrum and learn how to store and retrieve waveforms digitally. Introduction Vibrations and waves are important physical phenomena that we encounter in all aspects of our
Visible only in the presence of light color has become so much a part Visible only in the presence of light, color, has become so much a part of our lives, our culture, and even our language that we tend to take it for granted. Until, that is, we start running into problems with its communication and reproduction. It's probably safe to say that anyone making a living in a field that involves communicating color information - be they a designer, an artist, a printer, a photographer, or a color scientist - run into plenty of such problems in their course of work.
Many truths can be thought of in relation with the segment of the Twil Many truths can be thought of in relation with the segment of the “Twilight Zone” that we watched (The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street). Basically, people were paranoid with many stories that were told to them at this time. McCarthyism was abroad with the scare of the Communists. People were not sure what to think. This movie can best describe human nature. Another characteristic that humans have is to find a “scapegoat” of some kind. That can be readily seen in the movie. The paranoia of the
