The hose opens into the lower side of the oil pan where the oil is contained and collects. When you put the dipstick in the hose the end of the stick extends beyond the opening and into the oil pan. This is where the level of the oil is marked on the dipstick. Using the gauge imprinted on the dipstick you can now look at the mark left by the oil to get an accurate reading of the amount of oil.

Toyota yaris problem


Do Not do that!! Anything foreign in the sump is a really bad idea.It way make its way to the oil pickup screen and partially block the flow of oil.This has the potential to damage your engine. At the bottom of the dipstick tube is usually a small bolt that attaches the tube to the side of the engine.I would remove this and see if I can fish it out then.Failing this you will have to drop the oil pan and get it that way.I know this may seem like a trivial thing but the potential is there to do a lot of damage.
If bits of plastic get past the screen and get into your engine any cost to get the stick out will seem very minor. good luck

Dont know where to put power steering fluid


Go to the website for autozone or advance car parts stores.
look for a power steering pump for your car
there will be a picture of it.
open the hood on your car, find the part that looks just like the one
in the picture, unscrew the cap and pour in some fluid.
note the one in your car will have hoses attached to it and a belt spinnng it
there will be a small dipstick, no not overflow
it is probably leaking so if the fluid keeps getting low you may
want to consider a new pump and hoses.

2006 chevy aveo. the dipstick reads oil is full. but there is oil in the spark plug holes.did the mechanic overfill last oil change. that was 4000kms ago. dipstick still reads full oil


You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.

Where do i put oil in my 1978 Chevy C10 pickup


If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question.

Stick a hose in your exhaust. Run the hose into the car. Shut yourself inside with doors and windows shut. Meditate on the problem and it will resolve itself.

Transmission oil


Yes the transmission fluid goes in the location of the dipstick. As for the yellow "oil", if you just recently got the car maybe the previous owner put engine oil in the tranny fluid receptor instead of the engine...it's been known to happen. As far as I know, tranny fluid should be red, even if water gets into it, it's still a pinkish color. Maybe better to drain it and replace it. Good luck.

Oil leak


This is a maddening problem if you don't know what's going on. If it's like my 92 isuzu pickup with 2.3 litre engine, it's a vent line coming out of the fuel pump which will spit oil out. I had a very hard time figuring out why but finally read that there is a galley in the block where oil runs back to the oil pan. If it gets clogged, oil will come out the vent line of the fuel pump. I even took my head off and tried blowing compressed air and sticking various wires through the block holes near where the fuel pump mounts. Nothing did any good and I was sick of the leaking oil and having to add oil so I bought several feet of oil resistant hose at autozone and routed it from the vent line, back over the engine, and into the dipstick tube. This worked like a champ. No more leaking oil. No more adding oil. Make sure you trim the outside of the hose where it goes into the dipstick with a razor knife or similar, so it will fit tightly. Make real sure you use oil resistant hose or it will break down and get into your oil. Not good. Then use a tie wrap to secure the hose to something else like the brake vacuum hose to keep it in place. I keep my dipstick behind the seat and make sure it's cleaned before and after checking my oil. This truck doesn't use any oil to speak of now and I wish I'd thought of this sooner. Short of removing the engine and having the block flushed and cleaned I don't know what else would have fixed this problem.

Someone else said to replace the fuel pump to fix this problem. I tried that. It did not work. It still spat oil out the vent tube to the tune of about one quart every 150 miles.

I also replaced all the engine seals and gaskets. Front and rear main seals too which were also leaking. So now my oil leaks are a thing of the past. Good luck!
