Oil Change in 1984 Mitsubishi Sigma
\015 I am trying to change the oil in my 1984 Mitsubishi Sigma, can someone tell me how to release the current oil in the engine.\015
On the bottom of the engine, there is a metal cover. This is the sump and contains the oil. Somewhere at the bottom of this cover is a plug, it has the head of a bolt and a copper washer. Turn the bolt counter clockwise to remove it. When you remove this bolt, the oil will flow out so have a tray ready to catch it. Let the oil drain until it stops running out ( which can take several minutes) Clean the surface where the bolt tightens against the sump, replace the copper washer and screw the bolt back in by turning it clockwise. It should go in quite easily. If it only goes in by a few turns and then gets tight, remove it as you have crossed threaded it and try again..\015\012You really should remove the oil filter and replace it too. This is a cartridge which is screwed onto the side of the engine, a bit like a baked bean can. It will say that it is n oil filter on it. Now, these can get very tight so if you do not have the correct tool to remove it, hammer an old screw driver into it and use the screwdriver as a lever to turn the filter counter clockwise. Screw it all the way off and discard. Next, clean the machined surface where the filter screws on to make sure that it is clean and that there is non of the old sealing ring left behind. Take the new filter and wipe some new oil onto the rubber sealing ring to lubricate it and help with fitting. Screw the new filter onto the thread clockwise until it begins to touch the engine. Then turn the filter another 3/4 of a turn. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN or you will damage the filter and make it very difficult to remove it the next time.\015\012Refil with engine to the mark on the dipstick. Start the engine and run it until the oil warning lamp goes out, then stop the engine, wait five minutes and then recheck the level using the dipstick. Wipe the oil off the dipstick, put it back in then remove it and read off the level, top up as required..DO NOT ADD MORE OIL To RAISE THE LEVEL ABOVE THE MARK ON THE DIPSTICK. !!! this can cause serious damage to the engine, and your your bank balance..
