    Sorry, I meant to say it's above the Full line, not the fill line.

If you add too much oil yes you can damage it.you can blow the seal out of the oil pan or cause more pressure than the car needs

There is not a problem overfilling the oil by this level. If you filled it to the top you might have a problem, but where you filled it, it is not a problem.

I think I added too much transmission fluid to my car. Will that damage anything? Is there anything I can do about it?


To much oil in the transmission ( auto)will cause frothing of the oil and overheating problems, along with slipping and changes problems
If you filled it through a dip stick tube then find a shop that has an oil syringe ( probably an auto transmission shop) and place a tube down the dip stick tube and suck out the excess oil
failing that you can remove a transmission cooler line from the side of the transmission and let it drain out

Is there any problem putting a second trans cooler "in-line"? Would adding enough fluid to fill the cooler affect the fluid recommended fluid level?


You can probably fill the new cooler with liquid and measure the amount it takes, then include that amount in total volume. For instance, when you measure motor oil to a crankcase, some include the 1/2 quart or so in the oil filter to the total volume needed.

I would not see any problem with adding a second cooler. There are some trans pans that have cooling fins or cooling tubes in them. It might accomplish what you want.

2008 legacy air conditioner was blowing cool air but not cold I added one can 134a on low pressure side with motor running ac on high cold now it only blows hot air


I highly recommend that you get it checked by a professional. You may have a restriction in your system, or the system is way overcharged. In either of these cases, the possibility of high pressure causing lines or hoses to burst and possible severe damage to your vehicle, like a destroyed compressor, is very likely.

Also, check the can that you added freon from. Many of the small cans of freon sold at the local parts retailers have several ounces of "oil charge" in them. Many times, when these cans are used to fill the system, the system ends up saturated with too much oil, which can also cause dangerously high head pressures, which can result in severe damage to your vehicle. In these cases, the system must be evacuated and flushed out to reduce the amount of oil in the system before it will cool properly.

I just bought a 1994 cadillac seville sls with the 4.6 litre motor. the seller said the engine was recently rebuilt. the check engine oil continuosly displays on the dash. i have added oil and it seems...


Have you tried putting more oil in, Should have it above the add line. If all else fails have a oil change on it.Have them filled it like they do after and oil change, and then keep and eye on dip stick, If looses oil after that, you have a leak somewhere. Let me know if this advice helps you, Thanks Mike from fixya

Fill the oil level on a 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee,


yes you should remove the access. This will cause the engine to drown in a sense and have to fight. It is always safe to put in not enough to too much. You onlt have a certain amount of oil that can be placed in the pan before it runs up into your cylinder heads and can break the seal on the gasket. Then you would have to pay to get the cylinder head gasket replaced.

How dificult is it to replace a wheel cylinder in a 2000 Jeep.


On a scale of 1-10, its about a 3. It's a bolt out, bolt in item. Remove the brake linings, detach the brake line, using a flair nut wrench to avoid damage. (if frozen, remove line completely & replace. line can be cut above nut and 6pt socket can be used to remove it.). Unbolt cylinder and push it through the backing plate. Reverse process to install. When finished, re-fill master cyl and open bleeder screw on new cyl. push brake pedal down gently with your hand (do not use your foot or push hard...you can damage the master cyl) and keep it down while someone closes the bleeder. Open the r/r bleeder and do same thing. till no air comes out. repeat again at l/r.Close it up, re-fill master and your'e finished. (note: if master was dry before you began repair, re-fill and begin bleeding process at master before bleeding either rear cyl.While bleeding, closely monitor master level so you do not run dry)
Note: It is advised that brqake linings be replaced after any leak. If you cannot afford, wash linings and drum in strong soapy water & dry off before using. not as good as new, but better than oil soaked!

4WD not working properly Stuck in 4lo will not shift out to 4 hi or 2 wheel drive


It's probably your transfer case. If not used very often, they tend to seize up. If used alot, may be in need of replacement or oil needs replacing. I believe they take about 1.5-2L of auto trans fluid. Check the fluid level first, by removing the fill plug (big plug at top) and sticking your baby finger in and bending it down. If it's full, the fluid level will be right at the bottom of the plug.
It it's not, try adding some until it starts to run out of the hole, then replace to the plug.
To change the fluid, remove the fill plug first, then the drain plug and let it drain. Replace the bottom plug, fill (like discribed above) then re-install the top plug.
Always remove filler plug (top) first, then drain plug (bottom) because they can be a real bugger to remove and if you remove the bottom one and can't remove the top plug, you're screwed.
Check and add fluid if necessary, then try to shift gears before going through all of the other stuff because low fluid level can cause your problem but check on the right type of fluid first. Adding the wrong fluid can cause expensive problems. A fluid change would be beneficial, especially if you off-road because you'll get water in the oil and it does damage after awhile.
