Ok so I checked my oil level and it read low the vehicle was off and cool. I added oil until it read full. I cranked my car with no problems, I got not even a half a mile away from the drive and it started stalling and running very rough. I pulled over and read the dipstick and it was high i got underneath and immediately drained the excess oil now it is just under full with vehicle being hot running temp. But the vehicle has a stuttered start and once cranked on low idle is running rough enough to stall out which is odd for an automatic i think. I checked the dipstick and there is no froth as if it were areated by the crankshaft. What to do and where to start on getting my vehicle back to what it was two hours ago.. Plz help.

Sounds like an air pocket in the coolant system. Those can be a pain, some cars have bleed valves to help. If there is an air pocket, it will seem to be full of coolant, but when the air pocket gets to the heater core it gets stuck there and guess what? No heat, because you won't get any heat unless hot coolant is in the heater core. Old fashioned way is to open the system and keep pouring coolant in at operating temp with heat on full until all the air is pushed out. If it has a bleed valve that can be helpful. Have seen this problem on many vehicles.
start with 3 liters oil. Start engine at least for two minutes fill up oil filter. Turn off engine and check oil level. Keep adding with engine off until full reading on dip stick guage. keep record of oil added for future reference. Make sure oil API is at least SL
check that the oil level is not over the mark as this causes foaming of the oil and loss of pressure. At 80km/hr you will be doing around 3 grand and that will be enough to whip the excess oil into froth.. Too much oil is worse than too little oil.
02 sensors will not cause your vehicle to stall if they are bad enough to stall vehicle then your check engine light would be on. if the oil level only reads when vehicle running then ADD OIL ASAP. the level is very low. your dipstick checks level in pan once all oil drains back to pan with vehicle off. your oil is constantly flowing when vehicle running. that flow is splashing the oil up high enough that you are seeing it then. once truck is off all the oil drains down to pan and means level is so low not hitting the dipstick. If no reading when truck off you may need atleast 2 quarts of oil. Start by adding one quart to see if you get a reading. keep adding until you do. do not check immediately after shutting vehicle off. you have to give the oil time to drain back down to the pan. DO NOT KEEP DRIVING THE VEHICLE THAT LOW ON OIL YOU WILL BLOW YOUR ENGINE.
If your oil level is full, light is off and no abnormal engine noises, if should be ok to drive to the shop. If light does come on, stop the engine. I would also have the shop check your oil pressure with a manual gauge, to determine the exact oil pressure reading. This could save you from major engine failure due to low oil pressure. I hope this helps.
it is a combanation of both low oil level =low oil pressure check your oil level and make sure it is on the full mark and drive it to see how pressure is it could also be the oil pressure sending unit good luck
Than it either means you are out of oil, have no oil pressure, or the oil sending unit is bad.
Since you hear an unusual noise from the engine I would bet that it is either out of oil or there is not enough oil pressure to lubricate the engine. Either way it should not be driven until the oil level is checked. If low add oil until the dipstick reads full. If you have added four quarts than the oil pan was empty and the lack of oil was causing the light to come on. Start the vehicle. Is the light out and the noise gone?
Take a peak under the car to see if you can see oil dripping. If it is do not drive until until the source of the leak has been found and repaired.
When going around the corner it could have possibly moved the oil far enough away from the level that it's reading was low going around the corner but then getting on to a level surface evened it out. You shouldn't have checked it immediately when you got home. Wait until the engine cools down then check it,
Over-full can be just as bad as under-full. The crank will make contact with the oil and cause a froth of oil and air. Air is a very poor lubricant and will cause serious engine damage. Park the vehicle on a perfectly level surface and shut the engine off. Wait at least 30 minutes and then check the oil level. If it is over-full drain out enough to get it down to the full mark. Never ever over-fill an engine. Your car holds 4.5 quarts with filter change.
