My husband changed the transmission fluid in my 2006 mercury Monterey he put in 7 guarts of fluid after wards and its not even showing on the stick does this sound right?


He either added the trans fluid to the engine oil or he is checking the wrong dipstick. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL to see that the trans fluid is not in the engine. If the engine oil is full of trans fluid, do NOT START the car and now you need to change the engine oil and also add the trans fluid to the trans. If engine opil is ok, be sure to find correct dip stick for trans fluid. They should be marked accordingly.

Oil light comes on when l start van then goes off..oil pressure is at 4


It may just need an oil flush and filter change, yes.
It could also be the oil pressure relief valve that is sticking.It may even be the oil pressure transmitter switch that is faulty (not a big job to replace..).
However, try a filter and oil change first. Before the old oil is drained from the engine, try adding an oil sludge clearance additive. Link below will show you what it looks like.
oil flush Google Search

If the oil pressure relieve valve is sticking, the additive-flush may unstick it, before you fill with fresh oil. Use a quality oil - not a cheap brand

To put things into context, as oil breaks down with miles and age it becomes less 'pumpable' around the engine. If there was something wrong with your engine in the crankcase area you would probably begin to hear knocks and rumbles as the bearings break down. You haven't mentioned any noises.. I don't think you have much to worry about.

The first thing you do is flush the oil system using an additive and then refill with fresh oil and a filter. You can also add an 'oil booster' additive if you wish:

Too much oil in car


You may siphon the excess oil by the engine dip stick tube after you have removed the oil dip stick,using a small plastic hose long enough to reach the oil pan and attached to an empty plastic bottle to which you have drilled a hole on the cap and sealed the hose with any material like chewing gum to prevent leakage, compress the bottle to empty the air and allow the suction to remove the excess oil . Check the oil level with the oil dip stick and continue the operation until you have reached the desired oil level. This will prevent you from removing the excess engine oil by the oil pan drain plug.

Good luck with this project.......I done this before and it works.

Dip stick does not show oil even when full


If you have new oil and know for sure that there is sufficient oil in the sump this is not a new problem as new oil has little refelective quality and is almost impossible to see on the metal dip stick as compared to oil that has done some work. Assuming that you are looking at the right dip stick and not the tranny one. I find that by drying off the metal and painting it with white paint ( oil Resistant ) past the full mark will help. Other than that run you finger down the stick until you feel the oil

A ticking sound on a 06 ford f150 super crew 5.4L


Ticking sound could be coming from a Coil-on-Plug, or a pcv valve, or (hope it's not) a valve lifter which could be sticking. Sticking lifter noise often disappears when rpm's change, or the noise comes & goes. try changing the motor oil & filter right after adding an Engine-Flush Treatment to the motor oil, running the engine for 10 minutes at idle with treatment added to the oil, then draining the oil & changing filter while oil is still very hot. That last part is very important, so be careful not to burn your hands - be careful. -- The sticking lifter is a likely cause if motor oil has not been changed at frequent intervals in the past (every 3-4K miles) -- dirty oil causes sticking lifters.

Was adding coolant to engine grabbed wrong can added motor oil by mistake what to do???? less than a quart of engine oil went into surge tank engine was not running


As long as it did not go into the actual cooling system, siphon out the contents of the reservoir and add a good dis-washing detergent (dawn is best). Use hot water. siphon out the contents again and repeat till it's reasonably clean.A tiny bit of oil in the cooling system won't hurt (a visible haze) but too much can cause the hoses to deteriorate from the inside.

I changed the oil but my dip stick is showing way too much oil, what is going on? At first I had a hell of a time getting the drain plug out, but finally did. Drained the oil, replaced the filter,...


Make sure you are not checking the oil with the car running first of all, second don't check the oil immediately after turning off the car let the engine stand for about ten minute allowing the oil to drain off the dip stick,

Crown vic oil change


Some of them have an oil plug at the front of the pan, as well as the regular one. You have to drain them both. The front one only holds a quart or less.

Gas smell in oil


The white strip of fluid on the oil is a slight amount of coolant getting into the oil . The water could be from condensation on the dip stick. I would drain the oil and just put regular recommended oil in it with a new filter. I would pull the spark plugs and check for any coolant or oil residue on them.Then drive the vehicle a little and check the performance. If there is unusual noise from the engine then or blue smoke from the tailpipe the engine has internal damage.

Assuming the engine performance stays the same. There could be a fuel injector sticking intermitantly.
