Paso 14
Start the truck and look for leaks under the truck. If there are leaks, shut the truck off and determine if the drain plug or filter need to be tightened, or if a part has been damaged. After running the engine for a few minutes, let it cool down for at least an hour and re-check the oil level. If the oil level is more than a 1/2" above the top  of the "safe" section of the dipstick, you will need to drain oil. If the oil level is below the "safe" section of the dipstick you will need to add oil.

  • Place your old oil filter face down in your oil drain pan and allow 12-24 hours for all the oil to drain out.

  • Take your old oil and filter to a recycling facility. Most auto parts stores and repair shops accept these at no charge. In addition, some cities and/or counties have a service where they will collect used oil and filters from your home. For more information, see the American Petroleum Institute's web page on used motor oil collection and recycling.
