On what type of vehicle? Dipsticks can be to the left, right, or center of the engine. They usually have a yellow loop for a handle.

Why is oil level not showing on the dipstick?


Hi Kevin:
Possible switched dipstick but really unlikely.
My suggestion?
- Check manual or dealer for required amount of oil.
- Drain oil.
- Fill with specified amount of oil.
- Check dipstick level.
Under NO circumstances would I continue to run the engine until I knew I had the right amount of oil in it.
It might also be an idea to check with the seller, but still do the checks yourself.
Best of luck.
Cheers.

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.

1992 cadillac deville leaking oil at dipstick


I would look for other leaks. If you are sure it's leaking at the dipstick tube, there is normally an o-ring where the tube presses into the engine. In general, this is an odd place for a leak, as ther eshould be no oil pressure in the pan (where the tube terminates) and unless the engine is overfilled with oil, the tube end shouldn't be immersed in oil to leak. IF there is pressure in the oil pan, that generally indicates bad rings. I have seen engines where the oil dipstick actually pops out of the tube under pressure when the engine is running due to pressure in the oil pan from blow-by at the rings.

Oil dipstick


If the oil is drained, and refilled to the manufacturers recommended capacity, get any dipstick that will fit and register the oil, then make a mark on that stick at the oil level. D.I.Y. replacement. Not having a dipstick does not stop you from changing the oil, contaminated oil will do more damage, than a little to much oil.

There's a knock on start up, and when I checked the oil none registered on the dip stick, no visible leaks and no oil stains anywhere. I only just gave it an oil change. There was no oil light warning at...


no oil on dipstick is a very BAD THING make sure you have oil in the motor before you do anything else!!! or else it can cost you a motor if you did your own oil change,,, did you put oilpan plug back in? did you tighten the oil filter? did you put 5qts oil back into motor? there SHOULD BE A READING ON THE DIPSTICK. new oil looks almost transparent on the dipstick. try rubbing your finger on the dipstick to check for oil presence. look real close at the dipstick before you start your motor!!! if you added 5qts oil it went somewhere,are you sure it went into the motor? if no oil in motor there will be loud knocking from the motor. hope this helped you save your motor!!!!!

Need to know how to check oil in transmition in a 95 ford aspire


Check the engine oil level every time you fill the gas tank. The car should be on level ground when checking the oil.
  1. Turn the car off and wait several minutes.
  2. Locate the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube.
  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean rag and reinsert it in the dipstick tube.
  4. Remove the dipstick again, hold the dipstick horizontally and observe the level of the oil.

Fig. 2: Observe the oil level on the dipstick and add oil if it is low

  1. The oil level should be at the FULL mark on the dipstick.
  2. If the level is at or near the LOW mark, replace the dipstick and add fresh oil to bring the level up to the FULL mark. Do not overfill.
  3. Recheck the oil level and close the hood.

Good luck, and remember rated this help!!!

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.
