Oil Filter
Replacement
CAUTION: Loosen the oil filter carefully while the
engine is hot, the hot oil may cause scalding.
1. Remove the oil filter with the special tool as shown.
2. Inspect the threads and rubber seal on the new filter.
Wipe off the seat on oil filter base, then apply a light
coat of oil to the rubber seal and install the filter.
3. After the rubber seal is seated against the base,
tighten the oil filter by turning it approximately one
turn.
Torque: One turn (22 N-m (2.2 kg-m, 16 lb-ft)).
OIL FILTER WRENCH

Oil Pressure
Testing
If the oil pressure warning light stays on with the engine
running, check the engine oil level. If the oil level is
correct:
1. Remove the engine oil pressure switch, and install
an oil pressure gauge.
2. Start the engine. Shut it off immediately if the
gauge registers no oil pressure. Repair the problem
before continuing.
3. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature
(fan comes on at least twice). The pressure should
be:
Engine Oil Pressure:
At Idle: 70 kPa (0.7 kg/cm2, 10 psi)
minimum
At 3,000 rpm: 350 kPa (3.5 kg/cm2, 50 psi)
minimum
• If oil pressure is within specifications, replace the
oil pressure sender and recheck.
• If oil pressure is NOT within specifications, inspect
the oil pump (see page 8-8).

gine is hot, the hot oil may cause scalding.
1. Warm up the engine.
2. Drain the engine oil.
WASHER

DRAIN PLUG
45 IM-m (4.5 kg-m, 33 Ib-ft)
3. Reinstall the drain plug with a new washer, and refill

CAUTION: Do not overtighten the drain plug.
Requirement API Service Grade: Use “Energy
Conserving II” SG or SH grade oil.
SAE 10W-30 preferred.
You can also an oil a cantainer that
bears API CERTIFICATION mark.
Capacity 5.0 (5.3 US qt, 4.4 Imp qt)
at change, including filter.
6.3 (6.7 US qt, 5.5 Imp qt)
after engine overhaul.
Change Every 7,500 miles (12,000 km) or
6 months whichever comes first.
API CERTIFICATION MARK
The numbers in the middle of the API Service label tell
you the oil’s SAE viscosity or weight. Select the oil for
your car according to this chart:
Ambient Temperature
An oil with a viscosity of 10W —30 is preferred for im-
proved fuel economy and year-round protection in the
car.
You may use a 5W —30 oil if the climate in your area is
limited to the temperature range shown on the chart.
4. Fill the engine with oil up to the specified level, run
the engine for more than 3 minutes, then check for
oil leakage and oil level.
