SOURCE: 2006 chevy aveo. the dipstick reads oil is full.

You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.

Volkswagen beetle problems


Two possibilities I can think of.. Dipstick not fully inserted... or is it possible that you have overfilled the crankcase with oil??? On my VW, I learned the hard way to take special care when checking the oil level with the dipstick... I had to fully remove the dipstick... clean it off... and THEN reinsert it... and pull it back out.. and then look to get an accurate oil level reading... It must have something to do with how the dipstick tube runs down into the crankcase....

Puting iol in a 1992 oldsmobile


Most vehicles can take between 4-5 quarts of oil. Never rely just on a number. Put 3.5-4 quarts in the car, let it sit for a couple of minutes, pull out the dipstick, clean it, and re-insert it to check the level. Add oil til the dipstick reads as full.

Once it's full, run the motor for about 5 minutes, kill the motor, and let it sit for about 5 minutes, then clean the dipstick and re-check the oil. It may need a little more oil, as the filter may have taken some of the oil.

How and where do i check trans. fluid


ok pop open your hood look at the motor usualy the tranny has a dipstick just like checking oil. so find your oil dipstick should be on the driverside, then look to the oppsite sid of motor and toward the firewall usually on the passenger side of car[ the firewall is basicaly the backside of the dashboard under the hood] you should see another dipstick simmilar to what the oil dipstick looks like. it may even sat transmission on it. just pull it out like the oil dipstick. and read it. some have holes in it to indicate fluid level. also you need to check this with the engen running and warm..i hope this helps

Drained transmissoin fluid instead of motor oil on my Ford Explorer XLT, how do i refill transmission fluid?


Insert drain plug, tighten back up. Open hood, look for the transmission dipstick (BE SURE NOT TO USE THE OIL DIPSTICK) refer to your manual or dealer as to it's location. Obtain the proper transmission fluid for your vehicle, get a small funnel that will fit in the dipstick tub (remove the dipstick) and pour in an amount less than specified by your owners manual. Turn on engine, let run for a minute or two then take reading. If your level is low then add small amounts until the desired level is reached. DO NOT OVERFILL. If you're uncomfortable with this procedure, it's best to get assistance.

Checking the transmission fluid level...how to


If it's an automatic transmission, then it's best to check when the transmission is fully warmed up to operating temp. then while the engine is idling in PARK, pull the dipstick out and wipe off. Re-insert and pull out again. read the level as where ever the fluid stops making the dipstick wet. The transmission dipstick should be on the same side as the engine oil dipstick but further back. Some makes have "engine oil" and "trans" stamped on the dipstick handle.

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!!!!!

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.

Dipstick no where to be found


That is a tough one there, best bet is to drop the oil pan to get it out. Because once it has dropped into the pan there isn't much you can do to get it out. I would reccomend you do it soon without starting the car because it could get into your crank and cause alot of trouble . So drop the oil pan is the easiest and only way to get it out
