oil change


boo

Recommended Posts

hi ...quick question from a newbie.

is the sump bung underneath the engine block on a 280zx?

i`ve serviced loads of front wheel drive cars but nothing like this......

if this is the sump (for draining) i undid the plug just above it and no oil came out.

does this mean i have no oil in the sump or this isn`t the sump....

sorry if it`s a dumb question :stupid:

Your question is a little confusing. If this is a Z car with a straight six in it, then you can't hardly miss the oil pan plug. I dont know if the oil pan on a ZX is the same as on a Z but I would bet they're very similiar. It takes a big wrench on my car. The oil pan plug on a 240Z is roughly down from the number 3 & 4 pistons. If you removed the ONLY plug on the oil pan and got no oil, you got trouble.

They're identical. The engine, and oil pan are the same from the 240z on up through the 280zx.

Here's a shot of the oil pan, thanks to kenz240z, taken from under the car, looking forward:
