How to Service Your Engine Part 2
Rub some barrier cream onto your hands and, if you have them, you may wish to use latex rubber gloves too. Using barrier cream is important as this can help make the job of cleaning your hands later easier but also helps protect your skin from harmful carcinogenic chemicals. Used engine oil is not good for your skin!Thoroughly warm the engine. Torque wrench pump is usually best done by driving a few miles.
Once the engine is hot, apply the handbrake.
Put chocks in front and behind the rear wheels (or the front if you happen to have a mid or rear-engine car).
Remove the keys from the ignition and do not leave them inside the car.
Disconnect the battery.
Now you can jack the car up on a solid level surface, making sure your jack is positioned under a load bearing point or a jacking point.
Once you have jacked the car up high enough for you to get underneath and move freely, insert the axle stands underneath a strong part of the chassis. Lower the car onto the stands slowly and carefully. Making sure they are stable, secure and level (Your life depends upon this! Most people find it rather hard to breathe when they have a ton or two of motorcar land on their chest).With your oil bowl and a rag at the ready loosen the oil filter.
This is usually located on the side of the engine and you may need to use a filter wrench or a strap wrench to loosen it. Remember, “lefty loosey, righty tighty”, if you don’t know which way to turn it. Depending upon the model of car, you may have to do this from below or above. Oil will dribble down, so have your bowl ready to catch the oil. Unscrew the filter the rest of the way by hand and try not to spill oil all over your face if you are under the car.
