Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

I have a 99 jeep it started acting crazy and checked the oil the dip stick said it was bone dry so I put 3 quarts in it and checked the oil again and this time it was about 3 quarts to much


my guess is you used the wrong dip stick,
i cant watch you mess up. so....no jeep stated a 99 what?
wrangler, Cherokee or grand Cherokee?
so i bet you have an automatic trans, right?
then pulled the dip stick on trans thinking its the engine
or the reverse. bad news if true.
rigth?
find someone that knows the difference or read the lost operators guide.

and error 2, the stick empty is not bone dry, not ever.
yes real low. so and 1/2 quart at a time , not 3 qt ever.
until the engine stick is at normal..

if this is a transmission, and you put engine oil in there
all hope is lost. and the method is hot running, to add ATF fluids.
unlike the engine method.
my best guess totally BLIND>

Dip stick for oil level not showing no oil present when oil is already present


consult the fluids and capacities section of the owners manual and verify that you have put in the listed amount of oil. If you are just trying to add oil, add a half qt at a time until it reads on the full line on the dipstick

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.


Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

Use your dip stick. My Snapon a/c repair kit came with two dip sticks. There might even be more now. any auto parts store will have the oil in stock. When i ask the napa store to bring me some, it came in a qt bottle. With oz marks on the side. I sure hope i was of some help to you. Sawdust

I have a 1999 323I BMW and i think i need antifreeze but i'm not sure. A light came on and it is a picture of a tank with liquid in it with a spout...i'm not sure what that icon means on my dashboard. ...


either is antifreeze or is the oil light.
cooling tank is in the front of the car. look for a fan, the cooling tank is infront of the fan. open the cap (make sure the car is cold). and see if there is water or antofreez in it. add as you needed. also follow a tube from the side of the filler neck. you should see a container, that should be a over flow container. fill that to the line on the container. close the cap. and make a 90 degree turn. it should be tight.
the oil is on the button of the engine. you should see a dip stick with a color handle near the engine. pull it out and use a paper towel clean it, put it back and pull it out again. take a look at the tip of the stick. there should a marking indicating where the oil should be. half qt of oil if dip stick shows half way between the mark, and full qt if the dip stick indicated below the marker. fill the engine (filler is on top of the engine.) with oil.
