If the car is a quart and a half low does Subaru have a shut-off feature to keep from hurting the engine.

No. The bigger issue is why is the oil level going down, assuming you do check the level, say, once a week. Oil leaks can be from
* the head gaskets on older 2.0 models.
* rust holes in the sump pan. Patch the holes with JBWeld or better, replace the sump pan.
* rear crank seal.

High oil consumption also occurs on older engines, say 180,000km or more, via worn valve seals. You'll usually see blue smoke blowing from the exhaust. The fix is recondition the heads, a major job.

While it hurt if there is no oil in the car overnight

It will not hurt the car engine if there is no oil in it as long as it is not started with no oil in it. In most cases the engine can run about 1-2 quarts low and still be ok but that is not recommended. The engine should never be run with the engine oil light on or oil pressure gage extemely low.

How many n what kind of oil i need to use for a nissan quest 1999

If it has the 4 cylinder in it 5W20 and if you have the 6 cylinder it could be either 5W20 or 10w30. I usually use 5W20 in cold months and 10W30 in hot months. As far as capacity goes, as a general rule if you change the oil but not the filter, not something I recommend, then you start with 4 quarts and adjust from there (Basically by 5 quarts). If you change the oil and filter then start with 4 and a half quarts and check the level and adjust as needed. You could use up to 5 quarts maybe a little more. Make sure you check the level before starting then start the vehicle for 5 minutes shut it down then check the level again after 5 minutes. Make sure the level is between the marks.

How to fix simply an engine lifter getting stuck, in other words a clicking noise

add some fairy liquid to the oil ,about 3 good squirts and half a litre of diesel ,run engine around for a couple of days and it will clear the clag out ,then change oil and filter and use diesel engine oil it will not hurt it ,use a turbo variety ,then make sure you change oil every 6000 miles with a filter every third oil change to keep the engine clean ,do not use expensive long life oil with some fancy claim,that it only needs changing every 20,000miles or whatever ,the cheaper the better

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..

I changed the oil, how many quarts should i put back in. i have a 92 sl1 i believe. 4 door, sohc

With a filter change along with the changing of oil. I would start with four quarts, than start the engine let it run for a second. After that turn it of check the oil, and top off as necessary. Roughly guessing I would say it holds about 4 1/4 quarts. Or could take up to five, its safe to start engine after four quarts. BE SURE to start engine after four quarts for 10-20 seconds, and then turn off to recheck. Too much oil can be catastrophic. (if no oil is showing on the dipstick than it is more than one quart low. The lowest point on dipstick represents one quart low, the middle is half a quart, and full is full) :)

How many quarts or oil do my 2000 dodge interpid take???

Most engines four cylinder and six cylinder are going to have a five quart oil pan. Put in four and a half quarts start the engine for a couple of minutes and shut it back off. Check the dipstick. Nine times out of ten you will need to put in the remaining one half of the fifth quart. Dodge recommends SAE 5W-30 oil in the 3.3-liter engine and SAE 10W-30 oil in the 3.5-liter engine. Selecting the proper oil for your engine will ensure that the components of your engine are protected.

Toyota tundera v6 ran for fifty miles 2 quarts low on engine oil! dave

Probably didn't hurt it, my 2002 was ran for 2000 miles 1 1/2 quarts low on oil due to dummies putting only 5 quarts of oil back in it after changing the oil. It takes 6 1/2 quarts. It didn't hurt it at all.
