If this has the small filter witch they usally do it will take 4 1/2 qts. Just put the oil in and check and add accordingly.

I noticed that my car had been leaking alot of oil so i went to the store in it and it ran fine up there. so i pull up to pump some gas and buy a qrt of oil too, well when i get back to my car i noticed it...

Hi Jessie,
There could be several possibilities.
The first is the engine became overheated and wouldn't start while it was very hot.
The good news is the motor would crank over. If it overheated too much, the car would not crank over.
Check the oil in the motor again and make sure that it comes to the full mark on the dip stick.
Also check the colour of the oil. It should be clear, and just like the oil you put into the motor.
Check the water in the radiator. Is the water up to the full level. Is the water clear?
I suspect that you could have overheated the engine, and that you may have blown the head gasket, or even cracked the engine head - which I hope you haven't.
You can see this often by the oil becoming cloudy or milky, and/or the coolant in the radiator becoming cloudy.
This can cause the engine to lose compression, or even have water getting into the cylinders and also preventing it from starting.
Check that you have spark at each of the spark plugs - in case you have an electrical problem.
Hope this helps to get you out of trouble. If you are stuck at the gas station, they may have a product like Chemi-Weld, that will temporarily seal the head gasket and even a cracked head.
Best of luck, Michael.

I have a 1993 ford explorer 2wd. It has about 275,000 miles on it. For some reason my transmission fluid is leaking into the engine oil. When I noticed that my transmission was slipping, I put a qrt. of...

If you have a vacuum modulator on the trans,it could have a bad diaphram and **** trans fluid into the engine.
Now I do not know what model or unit trans you have. No vacuum mod,then the dealer is correct.
You can look just above the trans oil pan, near the rear, for that part and easily change yourself. Get at auto parts store. It will be the thing with a 3/16 vacuum hose on it,going to a port or vacuum switch on intake manifold

How do i get to the oil filter on a 2009 malibu 4 cylinder? Is an OTC filter ok for this car?

the oil filter is located at the front of the engine and is under the plastic engine cover. Pull off the oil cap and give the cover a slight tug, it should come off. the filter is a canister filter and you will need a big socket I think a 36 mm and a long extension. Leave the oil plug out when you pull the filter as it holds about a half qrt of oil. The filter element is just snapped into the cap. replace the filter and o-ring and tighten it back down untill snug. Do not crank that baby on there or it will never come back off! Put the drain drain plug back in, make sure you get the o-ring in the correct groove or it will leak. And yes OTC filters work just fine. Gm has used this design for almost 8 years

How do you reset the oil life monitor on a 2008 ford focus ses?

You will have a bit of old oil left in the system if you just drain it and change the oil filter. My guess it is a 5qrt system so 10% would account for 1/2 qrt. May not seem like a lot but your crankshaft, valve train and pan can hold residual oil that may account for your 10%, also sludge and other deposits too. Now the way you actually change oil, at a dealership or higher end service stations, they use a cycling system to send in fresh oil through the car and pump out the old. Once the color changes or my guess the computer on the device says the oil is completely clean then all the residue is gone and everything is good and the light will go off. This is wonderful since it removes sludge and all sorts of gunk out of the engine.

Just need to know if the engine is a 4 qrt or 5 qrt system. The car is a 2005 grand am 6 cylinder engine 3400 sfi is marked on top of engine.

Don't have chart on that one,But, easy way to tell is to put in 4qts, start & run it, then turn it off, wait five min for oil to drain back into pan & check dipstick. If 1 qt low, add another. This won't hurt engine at all and sometimes is easier than trying to find specs!!!

Hi michelle2551,providing the oil dipstick is the right one for your car then if it reads 1/2 qrt low it should be topped up typically when an oil change is performed and the car is started it will fill the oil filter therefore appearing a little low, it may read full initially but once it is run and shutoff it reads low follow the manufacturers oil level indicator and top it up hope this helps good luck
