Oil rises when it is hot..So with engine cold and not running set parking brake,get safety glasses.get a shop towel..Remove oil dipstick and wipe it clean..Inspect stick and it will show you where oil level should be....Stick it back in slowly until it bottoms out..Remove slowly and check level...
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.
add oil to max level just to be safe. let all oil settle down before checking level. did you diy was the car jacked up when you check the oil level some of the oil would go to the still empty oil filter after the initial engine run.
look on dip stick you should see cross hatched area with add oil or oil full mark.if you wipe oil dip stick with a clean paper towel and dip stick look dry no sign of oil add little oil at a time see if oil level reach add oil mark or the full mark.if oil is low. low oil light will turn on if bulb is blowed but if dip stick look dry oil level could be low,add little bit at a time dont over fill.
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.
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.
sounds like throttle body sticking.take air cleaner hose off ,get throttle body or carb cleaner sprayand spray the hell out of it ,in and out.if you dont know what athrottle body is,have someone go into the car and step on gas,observe under the hood you will see a cable moving a lever which is connected to the throttle body.good luck rob .
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
