That is a tough one there, best bet is to drop the oil pan to get it out. Because once it has dropped into the pan there isn't much you can do to get it out. I would reccomend you do it soon without starting the car because it could get into your crank and cause alot of trouble . So drop the oil pan is the easiest and only way to get it out

Where is the oil dip stick located on 2002 cavalier 4 cyl


If you can't see separate oil dipstick (usually has an yellow plastic handle), then your oil level dipstick is connected to oil filler cap. When you unscrew the oil cap you'll be able to see the dipstick and level meter.

What could be causing my 02 Nissan Sentra to restrict revs then stall at highway speed?


Your first order of business is to check the oil level in the crankcase, and bring it up to full level. You can probably find a replacement dip stick, or go to a junkyard and get one. Without sufficient oil in the engine, The will seize. or prematurely die.
Is your check oil light coming on? Have the car scanned for trouble codes. Auto Zone and Advance Auto will a scan. Then you will be able to get info on the codes and what they identify. Just look the codes up on an internet search.

OIL LIGHT STAY ON


Hi,
DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR w/the oil light on. Verify the oil level. If it doesn't show on the dipstick (ensure it's the OIL dipstick-usually yellow-and not the transmission - usually red). Add 1/2 quart, wait 5 minutes for it to drain, and check until oil is visible on the dipstick.

If it has oil, then your oil pump or oil sensor may be bad. You'll need a mechanic verify which.

I changed my oil last night with my boy friend who does frequent oil changes. Afterwords, my transmission started shifting extremely hard and late. Please help. I do not believe he drained the tranny...


e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

Drained transmissoin fluid instead of motor oil on my Ford Explorer XLT, how do i refill transmission fluid?


Insert drain plug, tighten back up. Open hood, look for the transmission dipstick (BE SURE NOT TO USE THE OIL DIPSTICK) refer to your manual or dealer as to it's location. Obtain the proper transmission fluid for your vehicle, get a small funnel that will fit in the dipstick tub (remove the dipstick) and pour in an amount less than specified by your owners manual. Turn on engine, let run for a minute or two then take reading. If your level is low then add small amounts until the desired level is reached. DO NOT OVERFILL. If you're uncomfortable with this procedure, it's best to get assistance.

Transmission stick where is it


Very back of the motor. Almost under where the windshield wipers are. Should have a red handle shaped similar to an oil dipstick. Either left side or right side of motor. Should be able to reach it easily. Just a bit of a stretch

I need to put motor oil in my car and dont know how to so it cause my eletric to stop and i also need my breaks fix


First problem: adding motor oil. Open the hood of the car, there is usually a lever or handle with a picture of the hood on it, pull that to open hood. Find OIL FILLER CAP and remove. Find the Oil Dipstick and check oil level FIRST! Do not overfill engine oil. Open container of oil and pour in to oil fill hole. The dipstick will have marks on it to let you know where the FULL LEVEL is, do not overfill. Electric should return once engine has sufficient oil in it. For brake problems, please bring your car to the nearest brake shop.
Hope this helps.

Whiteish gunk on oil dipstick


Wankel Rotary engine guys no headers or gaskets

This milky substance does not affect engine performance or any other functions of the vehicle. During cold weather, moisture contained in blow-by gases (exhaust , oil, fuel, water vapor) is cooled by the intermediate housing wall and condenses due to difference in temperature. A chemical reaction between the moisture reacts and the engine oil in the intermediate housing will yield the milky fluid. This fluid then eventually dissipates
as the engine warms up to full operating temperature.

The milky fluid does not affect the quality of the engine oil and therefore the engine performance is not affected either. Mazda has verified that the amount of moisture in the oil is within the acceptable standard for motor oils commonly found in the market.

However, you should verify that the coolant reservoir is full and that there is no sign of engine coolant leakage.

You can also go to you Mazda dealer and ask for a new oil level gauge tube plastic insert which has been developed as a countermeasure to keep the milky substance off of the dipstick (however, the substance will still be in there- it's a cosmetic fix only).

Hope this helps

High oil Consumption, BMW M5


Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!
