how minny quarts of oil dose a 96 olds aurora hold


A typical automobile holds 4-5 quarts of oil.....Depends on the size of motor. If changing yourself, Drain out all oil, change filter, put oil plug back in. Put 3- 31/2 quarts back into car. put oil cap on and start car. Let run for 2-3 minutes then shut back off. Wait for a few. Pull out dipstick wipe, put back in then pull out a second time...Now you know how much you need to top off level.

I accidently poured antifreeze in the oil resevoir of my 1998 Pontiac Sunfire. What should I do?


You need to drain 1 quart of oil, pour in a bottle of engine cleaner, let car run for 3-5 min and drain oil. Install a new oil filter and re-fill with correct oil and amount. You can get by with just draining the oil and doing an oil change but I suggest running the engine cleaner along with changing the oil.

lifter stuck& knocking in top of motor


Pour in some engine cleaner and run for 4-5 min, this should free up the lifter. Drain the oil and install new filter and oil. You may have to do this 2-3 times over the next month just to clean all the gunk out.
