How do i check for oil ?


Look for the dipstick marked Oil. It is usually yellow or red. With the engine off, pull out the dipstick. Wipe the dipstick clean and place it back where you got it. Pull it out again and there is a set of marks on the end of the dipstick marked full and low. If the oil covers the low mark but not the full mark you're okay. If the dipstick is still clean then oil will need to be added until the oil appears on the dipstick between the marks.

Checking oil level on my V3 Vortech dipstick is located on side of unit . Pics available


The dipstick tube should be as high as the top of the engine, and you should be able to remove the dipstick from it by simply pulling it straight out (no unscrewing).
No oil should come out because engine oil only goes up about a third 1/5th the way inside the engine. So unless it is overfilled, you shouldn't worry about pulling the stick up and out.
Check the oil level with the car on level ground, and with it turned off for at least 10 minutes so all the extra oil drips down to the bottom of the engine first. Then pull the stick straight up and out, wipe all the oil off of it using a paper towel or clean tissue, then put the dipstick back in (you may need to turn it left or right just a little bit to help it past some of the bends in the tube). Push it ALL the way in, then pull it straight back out again. Look for the oil sticking to it at the bottom. You should see a clear line somewhere between the full and fill lines.
If it is low, but there is at least SOME oil, take it to a Jiffy Lube and have them check and top it off. IF there is NO oil on the stick, you should not start it until some oil is added.
I cannot go in to how to add oil here as it is different on different cars - but you do NOT put oil into the dipstick hole.

My dipstick tube broke off of my 2007 GMC Sierra. I pulled it all the way out since it was leaking large amounts of oil. Now, I want to reinstall the dipstick tube , but since I made no note of where it...


wondering what became of this problem, i just experienced this same thing todaywent to check oil and noticed the dipstick was sitting in a different spot, went to move it over and it was quite loose, so pulled up and the stick and housing came with it

Oil press. stop motor is written on the dash. I'm due for a oil change...is it dangerous to drive my car with this notice?


yes, you are in danger of ruining your motor.. check your oil by pulling out the dipstick, wiping the oil of the end of the dipstick and replace it fully down again into the dipstick tube. Pull it out again and check the level of the oil. If it is low, add oil before driving. If it does not show on the dipstick, add 1 quart at time and check the level each time before adding more, until it is to the correct level marked in the dipstick

I pulled out the dipstick and the whole thing come out the tube and the stick still in the tube


The oil dipstick tube is simply pressed into the block, some have an "O" ring around them. If the "O" ring is bad or missing replace it or you can gently flange the tube until it takes a little pressure to dive it back in with a rubber mallet. It should then stay in place. Please rate this answer, thanks.

Checking the transmission fluid level...how to


If it's an automatic transmission, then it's best to check when the transmission is fully warmed up to operating temp. then while the engine is idling in PARK, pull the dipstick out and wipe off. Re-insert and pull out again. read the level as where ever the fluid stops making the dipstick wet. The transmission dipstick should be on the same side as the engine oil dipstick but further back. Some makes have "engine oil" and "trans" stamped on the dipstick handle.

White smoke from exhaust


white smoke is from burning oil it may not be enough to notice on the dipstick but the valve seals and guides and rings may be worn. they make smoke stoping additives you can put in the oil to help i use them in my old plow truck.

Dipstick tube came out and i cant find the hole to put it back in


Some times the tubes rot off. Make sure you look where the tube pulled off the block there's a small hole on the side of the block the tube goes into. If it rotted off you will have to replace it just make sure you get the other piece out of the hole.
