The oil grade is 5w30 and you should always check oil when cool or after the vehical has set for a wile. this is because if you check it when it has just been run than some of the oil will be up in the top of the motor and you risk adding oil when you dont realy need to. an over filled crank case is almost as bad as beeing down on oil.

Your engine oil is probably 5w 30 it should say right on the oil cap or in you manual. To check it there should be a dipstick on the side of the engine that is right next to the engine on one side or the other.

I recommened you use 10W-30W if you live in a warm climate or 5W-30W in a cold climate, always check fluids like oil hot to allow for expansion. Don't use any heavier oil than listed above.

Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

I just had my oil changed 2 weeks ago, its been cold the last two day and my oil level light has come on. I check the level and it is good?


The oil light is telling you the engine oil pressure is below 10 psi which could damage the engine.
It can be low because of low oil in the crankcase, or various other reasons.
You would need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to verify the light should be coming on.

How do I check and possibly replace the engine oil pressure sensor in a 2006 GMC Envoy Denali?


Oil Pressure Test Check for proper oil pressure at the sending unit passage with an externally mounted mechanical oil pressure gauge. A tachometer may also be needed, as some specifications may require running the engine at a specific RPM.
  1. While the engine is cold, locate and remove the oil pressure sending unit.
  2. Following the manufacturer's instructions, connect a mechanical oil pressure gauge and, if necessary, a tachometer to the engine.
  3. Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  4. Note and record the oil pressure reading when the engine is cold. The engine may need to run at a specified RPM, if so check the vehicle's specification.
  5. Run the engine until normal operating temperature is reached.
  6. Check the oil pressure reading again with the engine hot and record the value. Turn off the engine.
Compare the hot oil pressure reading to the specification. If the reading is low, check the cold pressure reading against the specification. If the cold pressure is well above the specification, and the hot reading was lower than the specification, the engine may have the wrong viscosity oil. Change the oil, making sure to use the proper grade and quantity, and then repeat the test.
Low oil pressure readings could be attributed to internal component wear, pump related problems, a low oil level, or oil viscosity that is too low. High oil pressure readings could be caused by an overfilled crankcase, too high of an oil viscosity or a faulty pressure relief valve.

1992 plymouth voyager oil guage issue


All I can think is that there is fault with the type of oil or the oil pump mechanism or oil pressure switch or oil pressure relief valve. When cold the oil is viscous and the pump will have little difficulty in maintaining adequate oil pressure. As the oil gets hot its viscosity is very much reduced and flows with ease and the pump has to work so much more effectively to maintain pressure. The speed of the pump is governed by engine revs so as you 'press on the gas' that pump whirls around making pressure. As soon as the engine revs drop the hot oil slips past the pump vanes and the pressure drops. Remedy: Use a 5/40 or a 10/50 grade oil. These left number indicates viscosity when cold (5 is less viscous than 10 when cold) and the second number indicates viscosity when hot. If you live in one of the northern states and suffer very cold winters try 0/40 grade as this will cause less strain on the starter motor, battery and oil pump when starting in the cold. Try and choose a large figure (45 or 50) for the second number as this indicates a higher viscosity when hot, a good thing for older engines with greater wear and tolerances. I think it is no coincidence that the problem you have seen started immediately after you did an oil change and this should fix it. If this results in no joy check out the pressure relief valve in the engine block: a tired or broken spring will not allow enough pressure build up. The oil sender is probably OK but "if in doubt change it out". All the above are relatively inexpensive but if they fail to solve the problem its time to look at the oil pump assembly. This should be accessibly once the oil sump cover on the bottom of the engine is removed. You'll need a workshop manual, some good tools and an extensive vocabulary of expletives to call on. Enjoy!

How and where you change automatic oil on


Its not as hard as people make you think. The car needs to be level. Its under the car in the middle. The easiest way is to check out you tube for the VW transmission oil change. Use this, just copy and paste. http://youtu.be/zuCNZhwIne0

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse


first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.
