when you start the engien does it sounds normaly?
if yes have you try to give it a little trottle when starting?
if that not work you can get the spark plugs out and examen them for oil residu.
when no oil residu you can check if the spark plugs spark when starting the engien .
when the do mount them back .
go sit in the car whit radio of .
turn on ignition then you must hear a feul pomp for a sjort wile .
when you hear it go start the engiene ,when it wil not run go direcktly to the exheast to smel for unburned gasoline smel.

please replay your findings

Pull the plugs out and check for oil fouling on plugs. then be sure you are getting proper fuel and spark to plug.

How many liters of 80/90 weight gear oil does my 1990 chevy c1500 take in the transmission?

Fill at side fill hole until fluid begins to run back out. Let it run until it stops, install plug and wipe up excess. If fully drained, usually holds less than 3 liters.

I have a 2003 Passat wagon. It is very difficult to turn the wheel and I recently had an oil change. Took it by today and power steering fluid was full. Is it safe to drive my car tomorrow and what do you...

i suggest checking your power steering pump , remove the outlet line and ave a friend start the car only for a second or two , and see if the fluid shoots out at high pressure..use a 2 or 3 liter soda bottle to catch the fluid ! #2 Check your belt but most def it only has one belt , #3 remove wheel and check to see if anything is jammed or stuck , But most likely it will be that you need a new steering rack...Rich

I was driving ad hit a bump doing that i dented my oil filter and all the oil leaked out i was driving to put more in but the car cut off on me abut came back on then it cut off and haven't came on yet. is...

thats the ECM protecting your engine thats why it wont start, you cant even idle your engine on no oil, yet alone drive it. change the oil filter, fill your engine with the recomended oil its probably 5w-30 to the operating range. and hope your car still starts. Hopefully it dint seize up on you, because that means your engine is now junk. sorry hope it starts for you. god bless.

Trying to find out how much oil the Triton V-10 takes when I do my oil change? I cant seem to find it or anyone who knows

It should be listed in the owners manual, but because of different oil cooler setups you may have to do the change yourself and add oil until the correct level is established..... for the first oil change.
Most likely 7 liters,but start with 5,run the engine to fill the oil filter,let it sit for 5 mins and recheck and fill to full.
Note the amount needed for next time.
