Question about 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Oil dipstick I am someone who was told that my full mark on my dipstick is different that what i think it is. I check my engine oil often. I like to keep it at the operating level line. However there is another dot way above the operating level with no lines or words. Where is the true "full" oil level mark?

SOURCE: What is the length of 2005 Chevy Colorado Z71 oil dipstick

If the manuel says 6 qt thats what it takes. Sometimes 5 min is not enough time for all the oil to run down from the top of the engine check the oil after 1 hour if you removed the same amount that you put in I think you are safe

SOURCE: Oil pressure drops, metal shavings, and somehow my oil level incr

My truck does the same thing, pressure never drops to 0 but drops low, replaced the oil pressure sensor and same thing happened. My oil is always black and has a lot of metal in it, next time you change your oil, pour a quart of transmission fluid into the oil and let it run for 10 minutes or so, this should thin out the oil and possibly unclog some of the ports that may be gummed up. What could have happened with the dipstick is that the old oil was too nasty to drain all the way, with the fresh oil it could have thinned out and raised the level, try the transmission fluid trick and see what happens, next possibility is to have the engine scoped to see whats going on inside

How much oil does a 94 corsica 3.1 v-6 with filter hold


My info for engine oil and filter change, 4.5 quarts. You could put in about 4 quarts, start the engine let oil circulate, kill the engine, let the oil settle for a bit, check oil level on dipstick. Add oil to the full mark on dipstick, hopefully the dipstick is correct.
I looked at info on chevy Corsica.

Length of oil dipstick for a 2002 dodge ram 1500 4.7 v6 cause when I try to check oil with the one that is there the oil is way up past full mark


The 4.7L is a V8. Did you just get the vehicle? Has the oil been at the normal level until now? Check the color of the oil - if it looks milky, you may be getting coolant in your crankcase making it overfull. If the oil looks normal (clear and clean), find someone else with the 4.7L engine and compare dipsticks.

How do i check for oil ?


Look for the dipstick marked Oil. It is usually yellow or red. With the engine off, pull out the dipstick. Wipe the dipstick clean and place it back where you got it. Pull it out again and there is a set of marks on the end of the dipstick marked full and low. If the oil covers the low mark but not the full mark you're okay. If the dipstick is still clean then oil will need to be added until the oil appears on the dipstick between the marks.

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995



OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

How much New oil should i put in to my 1992 Suzuki Sierra 4x4 Cheers Neil B


First make sure your drain plug and filter are installed and tight, then add 2 liters of oil and check to see if there is any showing on the dipstick. Add one liter at a time and recheck the dipstick. Bring the level up to the full mark on the dipstick. Now start the engine and observe the oil light(turn off) or pressure gauge(pressure goes up) then turn off engine. If neither happens after about 10 seconds, shut off engine and check for leaks or other malfunctions. If all is O.K. then recheck oil level on dipstick. It should be somewhere between the upper and lower level, usually indicated by crosshatch marking. Add oil to bring oil level to full mark. Small amount at a time. Most small vehicles only take about 3.5 to 4 liters.

  4. Remove the dipstick again, hold the dipstick horizontally and observe the level of the oil.

How to read the engine oil dipstick on a 2008 Honda Civic


As long as it's within the XXXX's on the dipstick, your car is fine! If it drops below the XXXX's, then add some oil. The XXXX's on the dipstick represent 1 quart of oil. You want to keep it in the XXXX's range on the dipstick. Also, check your oil when the car is parked on an even surface and the engine has not been running for at least 10 minutes. This is to make sure the oil has dripped from the engine back down into the oil pan, where it is being measured, and that the oil is even in the oil pan.

How do you read the oil level correctly on dipstick to 1995 Saab 900S?


All dipsticks have an upper and lower mark ..the top mark is the full mark and the lower mark is the add oil mark. Check it with the engine off on level ground.  Also after the motor running at take a few minutes for the oil to return to the oil pan to get an accurate reading.  
Do not overfill.

I have a 2004 Toyata Highlander that occasionally gets an oil overfill from the dealership. On the dipstick (after the car has been running) marks halfway between the full mark and the double cutouts...


Check the oil with the engine warm & off. An accidental overfill of 1/2 quart will not hurt the engine. BUT, 2-3 quarts overfull will result in issues, and I would recommend draining that overfill out. But, 1/2 quart is really nothing to worry about.
