You can fill the oil down the dipstick, it goes to the same spot and some vehicles just use this to fill the oil, I'm not quite sure on this car but if you can't find it then I would give a 90% chance that it is expected to be filled from the dipstick tube. You will need a funnel,

Please let me know if you need any further help with this.

thanks

I need to know what kind of oil my 1997 ford taurus sho needs and how much it needs.


5W-30 should be okay. It will state what motor oil to use on your oil cap in the engine bay.

From what I've been able to find is the 3.0 and 3.2L engines used somewhere between 4.5 and 5.5 qts of oil. That's a pretty big discrepancy to have between the owner's manual and the shop.

After you replaced the oil filter just fill it one quart at a time and make sure that you check your dipstick 5 mins or so after every quart until you're in the operating range marks.

Also make sure your car is on a flat, level surface.

If you're not comfortable with doing it all then just have a shop do it.

Cant find transmission dip stick , 5 speed manual.


The 5 speed manual transmission in your Focus doesn't have a Dipstick, the fluid level is checked by going under the car and removing a fill plug on the side of the transmission case, you then stick your pinkie in the hole and if you can just touch the transmission lube the level is correct. No Ford except automatic transmission models has dipsticks, and even those have been eliminated on the latest models.

How much motor oil do i need for my ford f350 how many gal


if it is a gas engine it should use 5 quarts, unless it has a heavy duty oil cooling system, then it may need up to seven quarts. Fill the motor with the first five quarts, the check the oil level with the oil dipstick. If its still low add one half of a quart at a time while checking level each time you add a half quar untill it show full on the oil dipstick..

How many quarts of oil do i put in a 2000 ford focus


Depending on what engine this is, you should drain oil, change filter, add 3.75 qts of oil, then start engine to check for leaks. Turn engine off, then check the oil fill on the dipstick. Add to proper amount generally at 4 or 4.25 qts.

Let me know if this helps,

Need to know how to check oil in transmition in a 95 ford aspire


Check the engine oil level every time you fill the gas tank. The car should be on level ground when checking the oil.
  1. Turn the car off and wait several minutes.
  2. Locate the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube.
  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean rag and reinsert it in the dipstick tube.
  4. Remove the dipstick again, hold the dipstick horizontally and observe the level of the oil.

Fig. 2: Observe the oil level on the dipstick and add oil if it is low

  1. The oil level should be at the FULL mark on the dipstick.
  2. If the level is at or near the LOW mark, replace the dipstick and add fresh oil to bring the level up to the FULL mark. Do not overfill.
  3. Recheck the oil level and close the hood.

Good luck, and remember rated this help!!!

Change transmision oil


You don't say if it's auto or stick shift. So-

Auto. Start the engine until warm. Drive vehicle onto ramps, SECURE IT! front up, turn engine off. With engine warm, at the back of the gearbox is a drain plug (we'll deal with that first) Remove the plug and drain all oil out of the gearbox. On the bottom of an auto box there is a plate, if it is easily accessable remove the plate, taking care not to split the seal, Wipe off as much of the reidue as possible, then using a releasing oil, somthing like WD40, spray the inside of the plate and it disolves the final bit of gunk. Replace the plate, the plug, Wipe some clean oil on ALL surfaces that are touching, seals etc, and tighten. Under the hood is a dipstick, by the bulkhead, for the gearbox. Remove the dipstick, and with a funnel through the dipstick pipe, top up the gearbox with the CORRECT OIL until it touches the bottom of the stick, Start the engine and slowly, let the car run off the ramps. With the engine running, wait until up to temp, check your level again, it will have dropped, don't panic, then top up the same way until the oil is between the two marks on the dipstick.

NOW

Stick shift. the same as above up until I mention the plate. There isn't one! Remove all the oil, refit the plug. On the top of the gearbox, just off centre, is the re-fil nut. With the car on the ramp, refill with oil. The oil should have come with a flexi tube on top of the bottle, if not, use a funnel on a tube that fits into the nut hole on top of the gearbox, making sure you can access it though the engine bay to fill. Get someone to lie under the car so they can see when the oil comes out of the fill hole, that means it's full. Refit the filler plug, and reverse off ramps. There is no dipstick to check on a stick shift, you don't need it.

It sounds like a long job, but it'll take an hour tops!

Let me know how you get on, any further problembs let my know. Dave
