You add oil any time the oil level drops to the add line on the dipstick.
Only use good quality oil as cheaper oil forms sludge that will kill your engine. Change conventional oil and filter every 3,000miles, or six months whichever comes first. You can extend that interval to 4000miles with good synthetics. Always change filter with every oil change, Before any long trip, bring all fluid levels to full.

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.

An image of oil on dash and next to it is min....what does it mean?????


The warning means you're low on oil and you need to top off the oil. Add about 1/4 quart of oil to the engine and check the dipstick. Add oil in 1/4 quart increments until the dipstick indicates the level correct. The dipstick on this car is hard to read, if you're uncertain about the level, just add oil in 1/4 quart increments until the warning goes off. If it goes off, then comes back after only a short time, then add 1/2 quart, and so on. These cars go through about a quart of oil every 5000 - 10000 miles normally (depending on various factors).

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!

How to check oil and when to add oil


Check oil when oil is warm use a towel the stuffs hot.
Theres a yellow dipstick under the hood located on either side of the engine or on the back side of engine.Pull the dipstick out wipe it clean then check the oil after the oil is warm and the car sits for about 4 minutes not running.Gets all the oil to the pan.Check then if its not to the line on the warm side of the stick add oil. Check oil monthly and change oil every 3,000 miles you can add oil to the oil if low before 3,000 but do not mix two different oils use oil that the truck requires usually it tells you on the cap or inside the hood .

My oil warning light is on and my oil pressure guage has dropped. what is wrong is it ok to drive to a garage to fix it and is it expensive to fix my vehicle is a 1994 nissan skyline 2ltr 6cylinder vehicle


I would see if the oil sensor on the block or filter area is plugged in. If it is then I would just go ahead and change it. If the light is still on then you might want to have an oil pressure test done. If you don't have a pressure gauge that screws into the sensor hole, then you might want to have it done to make sure the pump is still good. Let us know how it goes.

Engine rattle noise with oil change light on


Your oil level is low. Wait until the motor is cold and check your oil level. You could also check your level after a drive just shut the motor down and wait 20 minutes for the oil to seep back down out of the block. Pull the dipstick, whipe it clean and did it in again and see what your reading is. If it is between Min and Max towards the middle of both it is fine. If It is all the way up by Max you may have too much, but I bet your oil level is low, I bet when you check it, it will be down near the min mark. If thats the case, find out what type of oil your car uses and buy one quart of oil and add some of it to your motor. I recommend you add about a quarter of the bottle, then stop check the dip stick if still low add a little more. If the level is good then stop. It is critical not to add too much oil. When cars get older they tend to run hot and burn oil. My van does the same thing, I can change the oil and add 5 quarts and about 3 weeks to a month later I have to add a little more and I usually can hear when i need to add some oil because I get a rattle/ping and the idle just doesnt sound right, but once I add the little bit of oil everything is all good.
