Re: i think there is gas in my oil
The cause of gas in the oil may be several things. If the engine floods all the time or has flooded. If you have trouble starting it in the morning and fuel goes into the oil sump. If your truck has a carburator the needle is probably bad. In any case, have youe engine checked. gas in the oil is not good. Change the oil and filter. If it continues take the truck to a good mechanic that you can trust..

If you have new oil and know for sure that there is sufficient oil in the sump this is not a new problem as new oil has little refelective quality and is almost impossible to see on the metal dip stick as compared to oil that has done some work. Assuming that you are looking at the right dip stick and not the tranny one. I find that by drying off the metal and painting it with white paint ( oil Resistant ) past the full mark will help. Other than that run you finger down the stick until you feel the oil
look on dip stick you should see cross hatched area with add oil or oil full mark.if you wipe oil dip stick with a clean paper towel and dip stick look dry no sign of oil add little oil at a time see if oil level reach add oil mark or the full mark.if oil is low. low oil light will turn on if bulb is blowed but if dip stick look dry oil level could be low,add little bit at a time dont over fill.

To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.
