my guess is you used the wrong dip stick,
i cant watch you mess up. so....no jeep stated a 99 what?
wrangler, Cherokee or grand Cherokee?
so i bet you have an automatic trans, right?
then pulled the dip stick on trans thinking its the engine
or the reverse. bad news if true.
find someone that knows the difference or read the lost operators guide.
and error 2, the stick empty is not bone dry, not ever.
yes real low. so and 1/2 quart at a time , not 3 qt ever.
until the engine stick is at normal..
if this is a transmission, and you put engine oil in there
all hope is lost. and the method is hot running, to add ATF fluids.
unlike the engine method.
my best guess totally BLIND>
So you know, I am not insulting you. I don't know what you know or what you don't know. From your symptoms, I'm confused. If you pulled the trani pan down and the trani dip-stick still read "Full", you pulled the wrong dip-stick. Your transmission takes Mercon and you will need a narrow funnel that will fit inside the trani dip-stick tube. Follow the dip-stick tube all the way to the bottom and verify that it goes to the transmission. When you pulled the trani pan down you should have four or more quarts empty into your drain-pan. Until you can confirm that the the trani is properly filled, don't continue to use the car. Running the engine while the trani is empty can damage internal componants. If you have any questions, please write back, good luck.
pop the hood and on top close to middle of the engine, theres a black plastic cap with either an oil dripper icon on it or oil written on it. pour the oil into there. easier with funnel. keep checking the oil dip stick to make sure you don't over fill it. take out the dipstick, wipe oil off with towel, fully reinsert dip stick, then immediatley take back out to see the level. the oil mark should be between fill and full marks. If you have enough oil in the motor, and the oil light is flickering on and off you might need an oil pressure sensor (take to local shop)
what kind of dip stick??? Transmission. No dip stick as tranny is a sealed system. U cannot add any fluid or check levels. U need a special machine to pump it in. Well....actually I jimmy rigged a hand pump to refill mine after I acidentally drained it thinking I had found the oil pan! Believe it or not I am not the only one who has pulled off that ******** move.
Hi: To Refill your Auto Transmission with Tranny Fluid, There is NO CAP, Look For a Dip Stick Similar to your Oil Dip Stick.You Refill your Transmission where the Transmission Dip Stick comes out of a Tube. You'll Need a Funnel that Fits inside the Transmission Dip Stick Tube. This Should Resolve your Question. Please Vote and That actually sends me How Well I have Helped You. OH Look Towards the middle to the Back of Your Engine to Locate Your Tranmission Dip Stick: From the WYOCWBOY
if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of. if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.
