Oil light on


The light usually indicates that your engine oil is LOW. You should add engine oil (immediately) so that your engine doesn't seize up and your vehicle stops working (until you replace the engine). If you live/drive in cold climate, you can add 5W30 oil ... in the winter. Or use 10W30 .

My engine oil say zero percent


then you most likely need to add oil. Park on flat ground, locate your oil dipstick, remove, wipe it off, reinsert it completely, remove and check the level. if its still clean then you need to add oil

Trying to find the exact location on my car to add my transmission fluid i have automatic 2007 suzuki frenza my chek engine light is on


Open up your bonnet and look at the very back of the engine and you should see a long tube with a colored handle sticking out, also the check engine light can also be the engine oil so on either side of the engine you should see the same thing as the transmission handle. Its best to check both the transmission & engine oil/fluid by pull out each one by one when the engine is off and cold then get a rag and wipe off the oil/fluid on the longs metal sticks and putting them back in & out to see how much oil/fluid they have.
On both sticks they have a add more & max level lines so if the oil/fluid is on the add more line, add more oil/fluid to them to get it on the max line.
Remeber that the transmission oil/fluid goes to the back stick behind the motor and the motor oil/fluid goes to the side one. Good luck.

When I start the engine first thing in the morning it makes a clattering sound,until it runs for a minute


the clattering is most likely valves rattling until the oil gets up to top of engine,recommend change the oil and filter,use a good filter like fram oil filter,i've always used castrol 30 weight oil in winter,then summer 40 weight, also recommend you add lucas oil treatment,1 bottle,add with your oil change for top end lubrication,the oil stays and clings onto valves and adds a whole lot more of top end lubrication to your engine than just regular oil.it's just a treatment,i have a 1994 ford explorer with 450.000 miles on it.just trying to see how far i can go with original motor.but i always use castrol oil,fram oil filter and always add lucas oil treatment every time i change my oil.thank you for choosing fixya.com good luck!

My oil stick is at the add line. How much oil should I put in? And what kind of oil? Dont know the oil compacity on the engine.


You do not list the engine size. This truck comes with 3 engines. 5.4 V8, 7.3 Diesel, and a V10. Your owner's manual will list the capacity. The add mark normally means add 1 quart on a V8. Add 1/2 quart wait 5 minutes and check the level again. The 5.4 L V8 capacity is 6 quarts of 5w20 with filter change. If it is a diesel then it requires a special oil for diesels which is 15w40 weight and it holds 14.5 quarts.

My engine make a sound like there is no oil in the car but after a few minutes it stops. Do i need a heavier oil


No, check the oil level and you can add Lucas engine oil additive. The Lucas oil will add fluid retention to your oil and will keep the piston slap to a minimal. It's common on newer cars with high tolerance engines like yours, and if the engine was not warmed up prior to driving it hard will cause the engine to have piston slap much worst throughout it's life. You can do a search on GM piston slap problems to give you some more information to the noise your describing. There are a few things that can help, add Restor engine oil additives and Lucas engine oil to your regular engine oil service maintenance time. This will help with the waring up the engine before you go for your drive, good rule is the engine is warm enough when you start getting some heat from the heater. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know this helps your Saturn. It has for many on here with the same problem.

How to check oil and when to add oil


Check oil when oil is warm use a towel the stuffs hot.
Theres a yellow dipstick under the hood located on either side of the engine or on the back side of engine.Pull the dipstick out wipe it clean then check the oil after the oil is warm and the car sits for about 4 minutes not running.Gets all the oil to the pan.Check then if its not to the line on the warm side of the stick add oil. Check oil monthly and change oil every 3,000 miles you can add oil to the oil if low before 3,000 but do not mix two different oils use oil that the truck requires usually it tells you on the cap or inside the hood .

CHECK OIL LEVEL FOR CAMRY


Hi, Here are a few steps to help you with this issue.

Step1 c0d5c2621e60088a1_thumb.jpg Make sure your car is level. Any angle can give a false reading. Warm the engine. TURN THE ENGINE OFF. Now wait for a while, to let the oil to come down to the pan.(5 minutes is enough) Now, find and pull out the oil dipstick. If you can't find oil dipstick, check the owner's manual. You will find it on the top of the engine with a brightly colored handle that says "Engine Oil. Step2 07cb03604f4a35b81_thumb.jpg Now pull the dipstick out of the engine and wipe off the oil on the stick. Be careful this oil will drip. Once the stick is clean reinsert it in the engine. Step3 a378a48854d5e3a81_thumb.jpg Now, pull the dipstick again and check the oil level. It should be at "FULL" or slightly below the "FULL" mark. If it's not below or at the "ADD OIL" mark its OK. It is good to top it. However, this is hard to do without overfilling. If you overfill, the engine will just kick out the excess oil and may leak it on your driveway. If you wait to the add oil mark, your engine will normally take one quart. Step4 Check the oil condition: If it's really black, it's time to change it. Normally you keep track of the mileage since last oil change. CHANGE YOUR OIL BASED ON, TIME IN ENGINE AND/OR MILAGE AS PER THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS. If it's slightly-brown, it's probably O.K.
If it's white (coffee or milk color) it means the engine has a problem. Coolant has mixed with the oil due to an internal engine problem, like a blown head gasket or worse. Call a mechanic. Step5 To top off the engine oil you need to know the oil brand and viscosity. Usually, indicated on the last oil change receipt. If you don't know this, it's best to change the oil and put in one brand.
Find the add oil cap. Again refer to the owners manually. It is usually labeled "ADD OIL" or "OIL"

Add a little amount of the oil. Wait for a minute to let the oil get to the pan. Again check the oil level. (steps 2 & 3) If it's still low, add some more. Don't overfill! Remember to reinstall the dipstick and oil filler cap when you're finished.

Please rate and god bless.
