Oil say 36 percent use what does that mean

36% means only that much of it's life is left.

If you vehicle is low on oil it will say check oil. To do so you need to open the hood and use the dipstick to do so.

Also if your ol life is only 36% that usually means you have driven 6000 miles since your last oil change............ I suggest every 3000 miles.

Are Engine Additives Beneficial?

Are oil additives such as Slick 50, Duralube, Prolong, and all the others on the market of any benefit? The short answer is NO. I never have and never will add any oil additive to my engine. If you purchase and use a good name brand oil that is certified to meet API standards, then why add some product with dubious quality to that expensive engine? The major oil companies spend millions of dollars developing and testing their products. Their oil contains all the additives it needs. These oil additive companies spend a fraction of this on development and most of their money on trying to convince the consumer their product is the cure all for everything. They want you to add an unapproved additive to the approved oil already in the crankcase. See the flaw in this thinking. Stay away from oil additives. You may have noticed I recommend a product called Seafoam Motor Tune. Seafoam is not an oil additive but rather a cleaner, and fuel stabilizer. Click the product name to read all about it. Rather than discuss these worthless products in detail here, click the title and you will be able to read all about this subject at a respected website.

Hello there, my name is Mike. Our 04 Sedona has 98000 mi and the transmission started to slip. The manual sugests transmission oil change at 105000 mi. When I do the oil change should I add just the...

hi mike this is best just to add the normal transmission fluid, i am not putting slick 50 down i use it myself in engines, but although it has a additive for the transmission it will be like adding 2 different oils in the transmission , which it wont like, but after saying that ( ime sure some people will say what the heck lol ) slick 50 is a good preservative for moving parts, but really i personally do not use it in transmissions, just a hint as well if you did not know this already, when topping up the oil in the trans, make sure the vehicle is on idle when checking it....hope this sorta helps ya, but preference is down to you the customer

1997 blazer 4.3 has oil in the radiator now that i know my radiator has oil cooler .could the radiator be bad or a blown head gasket? note that my oil is gone dip stick reads empty

It's hard to tell from here...However. Since you say the oil is "gone" I would tend to believe that on this rare occasion that it could very well be the radiator. The reason I say this is because it's been my experience that a blown head gasket lets the two mix equally to a certain extent. The oil usually becomes milky if there is coolant in it. But since you say the oil is gone, that would lead me to believe there is nothing in there, including coolant/antifreeze. Check the oil cap on the engine for a white residue caused by coolant being in the engine block/crank case.

There are a number of options at this point. You can pull the radiator and have it pressure tested.

You can add an aftermarket oil cooler and cap off the old lines on the radiator

But whatever you do, put oil back in the engine first before you run it. It's always a good idea to add an additive such as Duralube (annoying late night infomercial) that actually works pretty well to protect the engine, Tuff Oil, Slick 50 (expensive) or other such product. Had it been added to the engine previously, it would have protected the engine better in an instance of low oil. Just a thought though.

Hope that helped, thanks again for using Fix Ya.

Need to know how to change the oil on a 2008 Hyundai sonata, how many quarts does it need.

ALMOST every car I've worked on has a drain plug on the "oil pan" ..big,.. usually stamped pan on bottom of motor to release used oil .. 1.drain oil 2.reinstall plug
3.remove and replace filter 4. refill with oil.. (my rule of thumb is 4 qts. for 4 cylinder 5 qts' for 6-8 cylinder) you failed to mention 4 or 6 cylinder (your car came with both)

Hello, my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee has 190,000 miles with 155K on the transmission (was replaced at 35k by dealer due to an issue). My question is: I'm having some slipping or gears when coming to a stop...

Slick 50 is good but I would change the fluid and filter to start with. While the oil pan is off, see if there is any metal in the pan, indicating an internal problem. If not put it back together and see where you are at. Additives are useful but can't fix broken parts. I hope this helps.
