Stand your car on a flat surface first ( not on a bank or hill ) lift your bonnet and look around the engine. you will see a dip stick ( a long thin rod coming out of your engine which usualy has a ring on the top so you can pull it out ) pull the rod out and clean the end of it. once its clean push it right in to the hole it came from all the way down. now pull it back out again and you will see oil on the bottom of it. there is a small mark on the bottom of the rod which tells you full and empty . it needs to be close to the full mark . hope this helps

Is 3 litres of castrol gtx too much for a 2005 tazz/carri 1.3? It's about 5 mm about the max mark on the dipstick.


Normally your engine oil capacity is four liters. at the dip stick ,there is a marking "min" and "max" which indicates the level of oil inside your engine. This marking represents one liter capacity. So when you measure it and the oil level is in between the min and max markings that means you need to add half a liter of oil. As in your case its already too much oil and this could lead to a hotter engine.

My greetings to all Iam from Saudi Arabia and bought 2005 ford free star sport with 4.2 L and i do not know how to get the manual and how many for oil for changing oil with filtter . thank you


you should change the oil every 4000 to 5000 km in that hot climat your van should take a little more then 4 liters of oil so buy 6 liters oil filter part # should be on the filter you could take it off the old one if your doing this yourself drain oil put new filter in and add 4 liters of oil wait 5 minutes check oil level on dip stick add half liter at a time and check oil level again wait few minutes in between for oil to drop down in oil pan for proper readings on dip stick.repeat ontil oil level shows in the hatch marks on dip stick DONT OVER FILL. also fill oil filter with oil before instaling the new one to insure that oil will flow trought engine at startup without having to fill oil filter first leaving engine to run without oil until this happends internaly on its own you may have a liter left after your done ,you can use this for top ups inbetween oil changes .you should also check and replace your air filter at this time .

4 cylinder oil capacity


Most 4 cylinder engines have a capacity of between 4 and 5 liters.
I would put 4 liters in , run the engine for a minute or two , wait a couple more minutes for the oil to drain back down into the oil pan , and then check the dipstick. Vehicle should be on reasonably level ground to get and accurate dipstick reading.

I don't know how much oil i need for an oil change


With oil filter you'll need 5 quarts. After changing oil and filter run briefly and check for leaks. Shut down the engine and check oil level is correct.
I hope this may have helped,

How many quarts of oil does a 81 ford ranger xlt take.


More than likely it takes 4.5 quarts or possibly 5 with oil/filter change. But to make sure there is an easy way to find out. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain all the oil out and change the filter. Now pour in 4 quarts of the correct weight oil, and start the engine. Let it run for 30 seconds and then shut down for 30 minutes. Check the level of the oil and add as necessary to fill it up. Probably wil take 1/2 or 1 quart. Warning: Do not overfill!
