Checking oil level in 2004 isuzu rodeo

Unless it is a smoker or leaker, it should not be low after a recent oil change. It is possible that it was not properly filled at the service facility, so that'd be my guess-your oil level should always be between the hash marks on the stick, which is designated with an upper and lower line on the stick.

I want to learn how to change the oil in my 2004 Chevy Cavalier so I can save some money doing it myself.

you need at least 5 quarts of 5w30, a oil filter purlator pure 1 pl14536 or similar, a 1 1/4" short socket for filter and a 5/8 socket for the plug... (i use 32 mm and 15mm respectively) note the socket for the filter needs to be very short with an extension, or do what i did and buy a wrench and cut it off to fit. start by loosening the drain plug, then the filter cap to help the oil drain faster. then open the filler cap. once the oil is barely dripping put the new filter in the plastic filter cap and lube up the new o rings on the plastic and filter with some of the 5w30. then install it and reinstall the drain plug. once that is done place minimum 5 quarts of oil in the engine and run the car for 5 min or so. then check the level and add oil as necessary. *mine takes about 5.5 quarts to max line.

I've owned a a 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager for a year now. I change my own oil in it. Twice now, when I'm done and checking the dip stick for the oil level, the stick is bone dry! The first time this...

The van must be on level ground while checking. after adding the correct amount of oil making sure to prime the oil filter before installing run the van for approx 30 seconds turn off and recheck after 1 min.

My 2004 doesn't have a dip stick. Alot of cars now have no dip stick. Unless you have a leak the book says not to worry about it. I don't like it but that is how it is. The cap to add is located at the lower part of the engine on the right side standing in front of the car
