When changing from organic motor oil to synthetic
the first thing to do is
to flush the engine. Before commencing, make sure to
know how many liters
you will require of the new oil. Having the right amount
is VERY important. Too much is just as bad as not enough.
At any local automotive parts shop,
purchase engine flush. With the engine
off, empty the contents of the engine flush solution
into the engine (via
the oil cap).
Let the car sit for a couple of minutes,
then turn engine for 2-3minutes.
Again turn off engine and proceed with the oil change.
Remove the oil plug located underneath the engine
block using a 17mm ratchet and drain the oil.
Once the oil is completly drained, remove the old oil
filter and replace it
with a new one. Something to consider when using synthetic
is the use of a
performance oil filter, conceived for synthetic, such
as K&N oil filters.
Put plug back in the engine block
and fill engine with oil. As well, the
use of a funnel can make a messy job clean.
Check oil level using the dip stick and adjust amount
accordingly. And once
all is done, celebrate with a little dance.
