Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited

2 Answers

Oil level above normal

My oil level is way above normal, like about 3-4 liters high. I haven't added any oil except when I do an oil change. The oil on the dipstick is clean, no water, tranny fluid, anti freeze or gas.

Drain it out into a very clean container, that way you can inspect it and still be able to put it back in. Years ago when this happened we would point to the fuel pump because there was only a diaphragm that separated the gas from the engine. The crankcase would fill up with gas. We have no such trouble these days with electric fuel pumps. Aside from that there are only two choices; overfilling and water from the cooling system. Please post your results.

How many quart oil is needed for LS'1998 LS 400 ?


I don't know the correct amount, but if it is empty, put 3 quarts or liters in, then use the dipstick level as a guide. Put in 1/2 of another quart and check the level on the stick. Keep adding and checking the level until it is full. Probably somewhere between 3 1/2 liters and 4 or 4 1/2 liters. When shows full on the stick, that's how many. If you overfill it, just drain some out through the drain plug.

Can a faulty speed sensor in a 96 dodge ram automatic make it only read 1st and 2rd gear


not likely, the speed sensor sends the info to the pcm and will affect gear change, though its highly unlikely that the speed sensor can make the pcm "read" first or second gear, speed sensor sends info to the pcm to help it decide when to shift gears/apply abs/ etc

Is it a problem to have had the oil level showing above the full mark on the dipstick after an oil change?


It depends if you changed only the oil or if you changed the filter as well. If the filter was changed, it is quite common for a high reading especially if you have not yet run the engine. It may show a quart high until you start and run for a few minutes. This allows the new oil filter to fill up with oil.

If you changed only the oil, you may have left some dirty oil behind and that's why it reads high. Or, for example, the actual refill amount is 4 qts. and you added 5.
