You have oil on top of your pistons... Oil doesn't compress so the engine won't even turn over. Take out the spark plugs (or glow plugs in a diesel), crank her over until only fuel mist sprays out the plug holes and then put it back together. Should be fine then.

How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system

Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

How to change oil

If you have to ask, I wouldn't suggest doing it yourself. It is easy, common sense, but you have to have common knowledge first about car maintenance and proper oil and filter, making sure you are careful when draining oil into proper container, putting drain plug back on without stripping threads, making sure it is tight, replace filter taking the same care, then filling with proper oil and proper amount, checking for leaks before driving, then rechecking oil dip stick level.

Good luck

I think I may have overfilled the engine oil in my 2005 Ford Ranger. I left for a trip and the stick was hard to see in the dark. Now I have oil leaking in the Drivers side floorboard. I don't know if...

You should remove the excess immediately. This can be done in two ways 1. Remove the drain plug on the pan under the motor. If you do not want to drain all of the oil, attach a vacuum hose from a vacuum cleaner at the oil fill on the valve cover. This creates a vacuum on th engine and prevents all the oil from draining at once. Otherwise 2. Drain all the oil and the refill to recommended level. Over fill of the oil creates air bubbles that prevent proper lubrication of the engine.

usually no immediate symtoms,but it can cause oil to get past the piston rings,causing it to smoke,and/or blow oil seals in the much over is it?the space on the dipstick between ADD & FULL is about 1 quart.if its overfull by a quart or more,drain some out,or take it in for an oil change.they'll drain it all and fill it properly.
