It may take between 4 and 5 quarts. There is a oil cap usually located at the valve cover. You really should not attempt anything on this engine, if you are not familiar. A little mistake can cause thousands of dollars ,damage.

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?

How to mixing oil and diesel in a Mercedes actors engine

No need to mix oil and diesel since the diesel fuel itself provides lubrication to the internal fuel system parts. If you put oil in the gas tank, expect a huge amount of white smoke from the exhaust pipe until the fuel tank goes empty.

My 1991 subaru 2.5 legacy boxer sounds like the power steering is out of oil when you start car in th mornings, but ok once car has been run ,

Your Pump is getting worn, as it expands the noise goes away. You can try and Empty the Power Steering Pump of its fluid and put new in and there is a chance it will go away but if it does not, you are looking at replacing the Pump.

Preventive Maintenance goes a long way, the same thing with the brakes, Engine, Transmission, ect.. They all require changing the fluid to prolong the life of the components.

Loud ticking noise in 2004 Buick century

The ticking is probably a damaged lifter, hard to say exactly without hearing it. If you hired a qualified automotive shop to do your oil change and they didn't put enough oil in your vehicle they would have some liability. Your paper work should state the amount of oil put in the engine. Cross reference that with your manual

My oil light came on yesterday and I checked the oil. It was empty, it never has had to have oil added to it between changing and now it's empty. Someone told me it might be the oil sendor, so I want to...

Sounds like the oil light and sender are doing their job. They are telling you, you are losing oil pressure. That will happen if you are low on oil or have pressure problems. Add oil and see if the light goes out and pressure returns. You may have leaks or a worn out engine.

I want to drain the old oil out so i can replace with new oil,, how do i empty it?

Under your car in the front should be the oil pan. It has a bolt on one of it's sides. Loosen this bolt and take it out. Don't forget to put something under your car to catch the old oil. Also, change the oil filter. You should see the oil filter while you are under your car. Before putting in new oil and filter, make sure you put the bolt back in the oil pan. Put a little new oil into the new filter and wipe some oil with your finger around the oil filter rubber gasket. Make sure you don't overfill with oil !

Motor started tapping loudly as if there was no oil, oil level was fine, changed oil sound quieted after 20 minutes, sound came back a couple of days later, went away the last couple of days on short...

hi this could be due to your hydraulic tappets, these will start to rattle if the oil has been low at some stage and the oil was to thin this normally sounds worse in the mornings on first start and gets quieter as the day goes on or disappears altogether, what you could do, is use an engine flush, put it in the engine and run it for a period of time, then empty the oil and refill with a thicker grade oil and see how that goes..hope this helps

How much oil to put in a 2007 eclipse gs coupe 4 cylinder

You didn't say turbo or not but put in four and check it with the stick. You did'nt say if your changing the filter. you didn't say if this is a freash build ture empty or just coming in for regular service? Oil and filter 4 1/2 no filter and not ( dumped ) 4 but put in 4 and chack it and follow the stick. the turbo can take 5 and the startup procedure is different. Di ale the spark or fuel system and cranks the motor till the oil light goes out. You spin that turbo dry it'll blow and here we go $1000. It'll do it once if you change the oil with the car hot and get it all done in a few minutes and start it right away. Don't wait, not on a turbo. the other engines are more likly tosurvive but the longer any engine runs pumping air instead of oil is'nt good. Change it quick with it ha\ot and start it back and check for leaks than check level with the stick and add till it shows full .. Never changed your own oil? Get a friend that has to be there with you mistakes can be very expensive. That car $4000. Sure change your own oil and take it to the recycleing center, and know that you did it right. The best oil cost the most and the most expensive ones from all makers are very good and maybe better than you need
