There should be a cap on the top of your engine with the proper weight of oil labeled on it. If you provided a make and model then I could tell you exactly.

Oil leak from a kind of solanoid coming out of the engine

That part that is leaking sounds like the oil pressure sending unit. It is a very common part that we replace on all Nissan vehicles.

1994 mercedes E320, radiator light has come on, unsure of problem as everything seems fine, any help appreciated

This usually just means the coolant level is low. If you are unsure how to check it yourself, ask a friend, or take it to a mechanic. The oil-change services (Jiffy-Lube, Q-Lube, etc.) will usually check and add coolant as part of their normal oil-change service as well, if you happen to be needing an oil change too.

What kind of oil do i need for a 2002 hyundai accent L?

A 10w-30 is sufficient. Dont go crazy buying the most expensive oil on the market, also dont use synhetic.
look for an oil with an sh,sg or a sh/cd rating. these ratings are from the american petrolium institute so there all the same.

Unsure about where oil came from

You nedd to put the oil back but not the same oil you removed as it is probibaly contaminated now. The new compressor should have come with a small tube 3 ounces of oil to be installed with it. If still unsure ask the mechanic that is going to charge the system for you. As he will have to pull the air out of the system to chq for leaks.

What kind of oil do i use for a 95 jetta 2.0

Hello, Depending on conditions i.e. climate I would recommend 10w 40 semi synthetic or fully synthetic if you are not on a budget.
If you are really unsure the shop/store or Garage who will supply you the oil will have guide books from the oil companies to give you the totally correct grade and amount.
