SOURCE: location of oil dipstick

The oil dipstick is located at the back of the engine.  If you look at the engine from a top view it is located at about 11 o'clock.  It's black.

SOURCE: OIl full - no oil showing on dipstick

Are you sure you put in the required amount? Sometimes 1 quart can make a difference. No offence intended cause in my early years , I won't admit anything. Only thing I can think of is all yhe oil hasn't drained down yet or the clean oil is hard to see. when you pull the dipstick out, Lay the tip on a paper towel or on your hand to transfer the oil and tell where it is. Good Luck and you are not going crazy, ot's there.

SOURCE: Engine Oil

Yes. When water gets into your oil, the oil will be a color kinda like dark mustard. It can indicate a leaking head gasket, or a cracked head.

How can I change the car oil


Basic procedure for almost all vehicles:
Warm engine to operating temperature. (Hot oil drains more quickly and more completely) Raise vehicle enough to crawl under it on your back (secure with wood blocks or jack stand so it doesn't slip off jack) set parking brake to avoid roll. Get a suitable container for used oil, (at least 5QT capacity) Locate oil pan, will have a plug with a bolt head on it on bottom corner of pan. (usually middle bottom of the engine in location) Loosen and remove oil plug being careful not to get hot oil on your hand. (gloves recommended) Locate oil filter on either underside or toward the side of engine. Remove oil filter with oil filter wrench. (they are usually on too tight to remove by hand) Allow to drain thoroughly for about 10 minutes. Coat new oil filter gasket with fresh motor oil. Screw oil filter on until contact with housing , then an additional 1/4 turn. Replace oil plug. Tighten to 45 ft lbs, or pretty tight, do not over tighten. Lower vehicle. (On level ground) Fill engine with correct weight oil (probably 10W-30W for yours) 4 QTS. Remove oil check dipstick and wipe. Start motor, allow to run for 30 seconds to fill up oil filter and circulate well. Shut off engine, wait 1 minute for oil to drain back into the oil pan, then check oil level with dipstick. Add more as needed to reach full mark on dipstick. (4.5 QTS for V6, 5 QTS for V8 usually) DO NOT OVERFILL! Start motor, check for leaks under vehicle. If ok, you are done. I use the 5QT containers of oil (cheaper too) and then put used oil back into empty container and take to a recycling station for disposal.

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?


Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/carmodels/Hyundai/Sonata.html

What is the purpose of oil cap on valve cover


That is where you put the oil when you are low on oil or when you an oil change. When you open the hood you should see a oil dipstick. Make sure the car has been off for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Have a clean paper towel and remove the dipstick. make sure its the dipstick if you have an automatic transmission. trans fluid is red in color oil will be golden to dark black depending on how often you change the oil. wipe the dipstick off and at the end you will see a full mark near the end. Replace the dipstick back into the tube you removed it from and pull it out again, check the end where it says full. If there is oil up to the full mark your good, if not add oil through the oil cap hole in valve cover top. re-wipe the dip stick and check to see if full. Add oil as needed. If you keep up with your oil changes as required depending on the oil requirements. 10w30 regular oil is every 3,000 miles. Castrol synthetic oil is every 21,000 miles. Use a good oil filter. Consult your auto parts dealer.

How quarts of oil does a 1992 passat hold, no manual and has the wrong dipstick in it. The car was given to me. The oil light and alarm is driving me nuts. The dipstick that is in it is reading full but...


That car takes 4.2 US quarts or 4 liters when you change the oil and filter. It takes 3.7 US quarts or 3.5 liters without the filter change.
Change the oil and mark the dipstick with a file so you know where the full mark is. Also that engine has 2 oil pressure switchs on top of the oil filter housing. If they aren't connected or faulty the oil light will come on. Hope this helps.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL ON A 2002 HYUNDAI SANTA FE. IM 19 YRS OLD AND WOULD LIKE TO HELP MY GIRLFRIEND AND CHANGE IT FOR HER. A DETAILED DRAWING POINTING OUT THE OIL CAP AND THE DRAINAGE AND FILTER FROM...


Lift your Hyundai Santa Fe using a jack and then place the car on jack stands. If you don't have jack stands, drive the car onto a set of wheel ramps.
Pop the hood and remove the dipstick and oil filler cap. The dipstick is near the front engine compartment with the oil filler nearby.
Gather an oil drip pan, a 17-mm wrench, oil filter wrench, cleaning cloths and a new oil filter. Slide under your Santa Fe.

Change the Oil
  • Locate the oil filter and oil drain plug underneath the car. The drain plug is on the bottom of the oil pan, and the filter is to the side of the oil pan.
  • Remove the oil drain plug using the 17mm wrench. Pull the plug out quickly and let the oil drain for 10 to 15 minutes. Check the gaskets and threads for damage. Replace these components, if necessary.
  • Take off the oil filter using an oil filter wrench. Dump the old oil into the oil drip pan and put on the new oil filter. Tighten the oil filter by hand, and then replace the oil drain plug using the wrench. Clean off the excess oil.
  • Go under the hood and add oil. Turn on the engine and check the oil pressure gauge to make sure it rises. Let your Santa Fe run for a minute.
  • Lower your Hyundai Santa Fe and turn off the engine. Take an oil reading on the dipstick. If the oil level isn't at full, add a bit more oil.
Thanks
