From what you say-- you put in 4.5 litres of oil and it is just over 1/2 but you took out 7 litres , that would be just about right as the other 2.5 litres should make it full on the dip stick
there would be a problem if you took out 10 litres of oil but 6 litres filled it to the full line on the dipstick

3. Put in a little oil in oil filler hole of engine.
4. then pull out the oil dip stick from engine
5. and clean the dip stick on a rag.
6. Put dip stick back in engine
7. pull out again and check the level showing on the dip Stick
8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

Ticking sound in top end of 04 intrepid 2.7. I have replaced the water pump as it was overheating...that problem is gone. Replaced the timing chain and tensioner and all new gaskets... its ticking once...


check that you have put the right amount of oil in the sump as the oil light is probably coming as the oil surges away from the pump. disregard the dip stick for a minute . There is normally around 4 litres of oil in a sump ( 1 us gallon)

I need to know how much oil to put in buss Toyota coaster model 2007 can help I would be grateful many thanks


Most small diesel engines run 6 litres in the sump so start with 5 litres and check the dip stick Continue to add until the full level is reached.. Check after short run (1-2 minutes) and top up if necessary

2003 holden rodeo auto gearbox. I have taken the oil from the bottom of the sump nut out and have been replacing the oil from the dip stick. Is this correct and how much oil do I replace, or is it just...


Taking the oil from bottom sump is correct n yes putting it back via the dip stick is correct too. But b4 u guage, start up the car, engage gear with leg on the brakes if stationary, try reverse too 4 a while, legs on brakes again if stationary bring to neutral, still on hand brake up. Then guage to d required dip stick mark. Note: b4 starting up n engaging gears be sure u ve put in some oil first n pls do not let it over guage, go past the mark on dip stick, if it does drain a bit at a time till u get it right.

WE DRAINED 2 1/2 LTRS OF OIL OUT DURING AN OIL CHANGE AND PUT 2 LTRS BACK IN, ITS NOW SAYING ON THE DIP STICK THAT ITS OVER FULL, WE EVEN TOOK THE SUMP PLUG OUT AT THE BOTTOM AFTER THE ENG WAS WARM BUT NO...


Could be that it needs to run, if you changed the oil filter also, you removed a full filter and put on an empty one. Could be that the often-present-on VW's plastic ring on the dip stick tube is broken, causing the dipstick to more fully insert. Check the specifications. Was the car parked differently? Uphile or downhill will cause a different reading, perhaps the before reading was inaccurate.

I do not have a manuel could someone tell me how much oil is required when changing a 2.2 engine.


Generally in the 5 to 6 litre (quarts) range. Put in 4 litres and check on dip stick. Add remainder half a litre at a time checking the dip each time. The volume of oil required to be added to go from "MIN" mark on the dip stick to "MAX" is just half a litre.

Your dip stick tube is your fill tube for your transmission . Make sure your transmission oil is at opperating temp before servicing some instructions are written on the dip stick , Use a small funnel , Add a little at a time (cup). Use the proper fluid , check regularly
