I need to change the oil on my 2000 Hyundai Accent L. It is a new car to me, so I have never changed the oil on this car before, but have changed oil on numerous other cars I've owned in the past. The car came without a manual, so I dont know where the oil filter is, although I can probably find it, but most importantly I dont know how much oil the 1.5 L engine takes. If anyone can help with this information I would really appreciate it. Thanks for your time. Regards, Trevor McNichols

Oil change frequency.I just bought this Jeep. I looked in the manual and it says every 3000-4000 miles. The gauge on the info center says next oil change due at 7300 miles. Leading me to believe that it means oil change at every 7500 miles. The man I bought it from has only used synthetic oil and I did my first oil change on it and used synthetic as well. Do I need to stick to the 3000-4000 mile area or can I go longer? Thanks, Craig

Clicking noise no i dont use the airconditioning. and the battery it fine. i think it might be the oil and im taking it for a change soon, but the oil looks good.

I have a mazda 626 , went to get my oil changed and noticed my synthetic 10w30 had been changed to synthetic 5w30 oil. I've never had to specify wich only that I wanted synthetic. My owners manual only recommeds 10w30 and I need to know if this is a problem. Do I need to take my car back to have the 5w30 replaced with 10w30 ? Is my engine going to have damage caused from this happening?


Nope, it's not a problem. The numbers relate to the viscosity or slippery'ness (if thats a word) of the oil. The first number (5 or 10) is the viscosity of the oil when you first start the car. 5 is more slippery than 10. The second number (30) is th ... 1998 Mazda 626
