SOURCE: do u have too check oil level between oil

Hi:
Once you get to "know" your car, you have an idea of the vehicle's oil consumption. Another consideration is if you have done average , or hard driving too. If the car has been thru several oil changes, and not used any oil, then it isn't that important to regularly check the dipstick .

If you just bought a car, and are not sure, then check the oil every time your fill the gas tank.

If it is a cummins engine use Shell Rotella oil 15/40. This is what cummins recommends. Use the same if a mercedes engine. Black oil in a diesel is normal so don't worry.

When I check the oil it smells of gas motor run strong but why would there be gas in the oil?


your oil may be breaking down,try a really good oil change with a fram oil filter,recommend that you use castrol 30 weight oil in winter and 40 weight in summer,also add lucas oil treatment in with the oil change,it gives great top of motor lubrication,not like regular oil.fram filters are great too,they won't fold under pressure like a cheap one would.when you refine oil,it turns into gas.if you've been using a quick oil change place,stop. find a mechanic that can change your oil. you go to parts store,purchase an oil change kit with 30 weight castrol oil,tell them you want to add lucas oil treatment in on the oil change and have them look up your engine to see how many quarts of oil it takes,make sure they know that you want to add the lucas in on the oil change so you don't overfill the oil.after you've purchased the oil change kit,then go to your mechanic with your supplies and have them change your oil.after you've done this once,you'll do it all the time.quick oil change places buy their oil in bulk and as cheap as possible,then charge you for quality products.they break down quicklyand add very little lubrication to your engine.thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2002 ford focus. two weeks ago after a oil change at a quick-lube joint. i noticed a oil leak on driveway. took it to my mechanic and he replaced valve cover gaskets and oil switch. i noticed...


if the place where you had the oil changed used a oil flush pressure system they could of damaged the seal as they not supposed to have that amount of pressure on them, this would damage all or most of the oil seals. a good oil change is were they dont use one of these systems they cause more problems over time. if you do an oil change its best to do it your self or at a garage you trust. and ask them to add flush cleaner this is a substance you add to the oil and run for 15 min in the engine and then do the oil change, you dont always need to use a flush only if there is a build up of oil carbon in the engine. some build up is normal but if you change the oil regular you don't need to flush as its only old oil that needs changing and flushing. hope this helps

When I start the engine first thing in the morning it makes a clattering sound,until it runs for a minute


the clattering is most likely valves rattling until the oil gets up to top of engine,recommend change the oil and filter,use a good filter like fram oil filter,i've always used castrol 30 weight oil in winter,then summer 40 weight, also recommend you add lucas oil treatment,1 bottle,add with your oil change for top end lubrication,the oil stays and clings onto valves and adds a whole lot more of top end lubrication to your engine than just regular oil.it's just a treatment,i have a 1994 ford explorer with 450.000 miles on it.just trying to see how far i can go with original motor.but i always use castrol oil,fram oil filter and always add lucas oil treatment every time i change my oil.thank you for choosing fixya.com good luck!

When do I add Oil?


Really you should not have to add oil. But to find out have jeep on level surface and use the dip stick to check. Check with car off, pull dip stick out and wipe off and reinsert, Pull back out and read the stick only add if it is low. Do not over fill.

CHECK OIL LEVEL FOR CAMRY


Hi, Here are a few steps to help you with this issue.

Step1 c0d5c2621e60088a1_thumb.jpg Make sure your car is level. Any angle can give a false reading. Warm the engine. TURN THE ENGINE OFF. Now wait for a while, to let the oil to come down to the pan.(5 minutes is enough) Now, find and pull out the oil dipstick. If you can't find oil dipstick, check the owner's manual. You will find it on the top of the engine with a brightly colored handle that says "Engine Oil. Step2 07cb03604f4a35b81_thumb.jpg Now pull the dipstick out of the engine and wipe off the oil on the stick. Be careful this oil will drip. Once the stick is clean reinsert it in the engine. Step3 a378a48854d5e3a81_thumb.jpg Now, pull the dipstick again and check the oil level. It should be at "FULL" or slightly below the "FULL" mark. If it's not below or at the "ADD OIL" mark its OK. It is good to top it. However, this is hard to do without overfilling. If you overfill, the engine will just kick out the excess oil and may leak it on your driveway. If you wait to the add oil mark, your engine will normally take one quart. Step4 Check the oil condition: If it's really black, it's time to change it. Normally you keep track of the mileage since last oil change. CHANGE YOUR OIL BASED ON, TIME IN ENGINE AND/OR MILAGE AS PER THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS. If it's slightly-brown, it's probably O.K.
If it's white (coffee or milk color) it means the engine has a problem. Coolant has mixed with the oil due to an internal engine problem, like a blown head gasket or worse. Call a mechanic. Step5 To top off the engine oil you need to know the oil brand and viscosity. Usually, indicated on the last oil change receipt. If you don't know this, it's best to change the oil and put in one brand.
Find the add oil cap. Again refer to the owners manually. It is usually labeled "ADD OIL" or "OIL"

Add a little amount of the oil. Wait for a minute to let the oil get to the pan. Again check the oil level. (steps 2 & 3) If it's still low, add some more. Don't overfill! Remember to reinstall the dipstick and oil filler cap when you're finished.

Please rate and god bless.
