I will answer a question with a question, "where is the oil going ? "
No recalls on dip sticks. I would be more concered about where the oil is going, and how often do you have to put it in ?
It is possible that the oil pressure is dropping. When did you last have unit serviced ?

2003 caravan: malfunction indicator light came on while driving about 2 miles from home . engine oil down 1/2 qtTrans. Fluid OK. Gas filled up 40 miles ago. I notice a slight soft put put noise


You said you engine oil was low 1/2 quart? was it just changed? or does it use a little between changes? Sounds like a mis fire which would have to do with sparkplugs, spark plug wires and the coil pack. I have owned a 97 grand caravan.I know yours is the next gen but drivetrain were just about the same. I had a few fuel injector wires that would cause a mis every now and then. The check engine light will be the key, There will be a code stored in there that will guide you to your answer. If you have 100,000mi on it. Its time for a tune up.As for the 1/2 quart on the oil, sometimes "lube service" Fills to the full line on oil stick. The oil filter will hold just about a 1/2 quart. So if "Lube service" did not account for this, after you start your van and check the oil it will show just shy of 1/2 quart. I would suggest getting the engine code first (mfi lamp)

My problem is when driving, the engine rattles bad especially when accelerating, I had noticed my oil level looked empty


Most engines take at least 5 quarts of oil. Have you check the dip stick to see how much is in there?

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).

1992 Toyota Camry V6 how many litres oil


Can't give you an exact number but I can tell you how to find out. I will asume that you are changing you oil and filter? After putting the oil plug and filter on put three quarts of oil in and start engine; after oil light goes off, turn engine off and let set for about 5 minutes, then check oil; if it is not on the low mark of dip stick add another quart, start engine, stop engine, let set for a couple of minutes and check again. By now you should either be at or above the low line and just add enough oil to top it off at the full line. I would guess that about 4 1/2 to 5 quarts is what you will need. Hope this helps,

I was low on oil. The warning lights came on and I immediatley pulled over and put a quart in. The light stayed on so I put in another quart. After looking at the dip stick I saw that I must have been...


first I would put in the proper amount of oil, once you are sure the level is full and if the light still comes on, pull the wire from the oil pressure sending unit, the light should go off with key on, if the light goes off then the sensor is bad. replace sensor

On a 2003 gmc not 4x4 6cyl. how many quarts of oil does it need and do i have to use the specific 5 30w


you should always use the recommended oil. the viscosity of the oil is critical to bearing lubrication. as for quantity, after draining oil and replacing the filter, fill the crankcase with 4 quarts. this will be enough to provide protection. run the engine for a minute or two. shut the engine off and allow 2-3 minutes for the oil to drain back into the crankcase. check the oil level. if the oil is visable on the dipstick to the bottom of the hash marks, add 1 more quart and that should bring you up to the full mark. the area of the hash marks represent 1 quart. if the oil is at the half way point between the hash marks, add 1/2 quart. the dipstick might also have sight holes where you read the level. in any case, the marked area measures 1 quart. if the oil falls within those marks, add the proper amount accordingly.

How much oil do i put in my truck right after i do an oil change auto zone said 3 buckets of oil . but isnt that too much for an ford f250 94-95


The most these trucks take is six and a half U.S. quarts of oil.The safest way to know for sure is to drain all the oil out, remove and install a new oil filter, then install five quarts of your preferred oil.Start the vehicle up and let it run for thirty seconds, then turn it off.Pull the dipstick out and check the level with the engine not running, then top off the oil as necessary.Run it for five minutes to verify that there are no oil leaks, Then Happy Motoring!!! Hope I could help!!!

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???


I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

Oil


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
