Yes it is a problem, you can have a waterpump that leaks as the engine runs, when the vehicle warms up coolant expands and goes to the resovoir,as you turn the engine off and the engine cools off the fluid in the resovoir reutns to the engine but here the problem the radiator cap cant do its job when the water pump leaks

By not having enough oil in the car, would that create a popping sound? Have a 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo that was working fine and the next morning it started popping. Put it had one quart in and put 2...


If I understand your situation, you are saying the engine was run with one quart and you added 2 more quarts of oil. Now you have 3 quarts which is less than what it takes to make it full. On some engines it takes 5 quarts of oil. You will have to check the dipstick to see where you are now compared to the full mark.

If it is still less than full, it may cause some noise, but depending on how long you ran it with the oil low, how hot it got and other unknowns, you may have a serious problem. Try adding oil to the fill mark and pray that after you run it awhile the noise will go away. The noise may be the lifters trying to work with little or no pressure. It is possible that after the oil top off and a bit of driving they may pressure up and start working again.

Checking oil and transmission levels


you will check the oil with then engine off. Pull the oil dipstick (yellow one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The oil level should be in the hash marks. If the level is below the hash marks than start by adding one quart and recheck. One quart will change the oil level from the bottom of the hash marks to the top of the hash marks.

The transmission fluid needs to be checked with the engine running. Preferably warmed up to operating temperature. With your foot on the brake engage the transmission through all the gears and then back into park. With the engine still running remove the transmission dipstick (red one) and wipe clean. Reinsert the dipstick and pull out. The fluid level should be in btween the hot marks. If it is low start by adding 1/2 quart at a time through the transmission dipstick tube. You will need a funnel small enough to fit in the tube to do this. It will take a while for the fluid to drain out of the tube. Recheck check the fluid level and continue adding in 1/2 quart increments until the level is in between the hot marks.

Could you tell me how to get the correct oil level hieght in my auto transmission on my 2005 4.7ltr


After warming the trans up by driving the vehicle, park on level ground and with the car in park with the engine running pull the transmission dipstick out and wipe with a rag. Put the stick all the way back in and check the level by reading the amount of fluid on the stick and comparing the position of the fluid to the markings on the stick. If you need to add fluid use a funnel to add fluid through the dipstick tube. Add a quarter quart at a time allowing time for the fluid to drain all the way down the tube before checking the fluid level again and adding another quarter quart (it sometimes takes five minutes or so for the fluid to drain completely down the tube). If you are losing fluid on a regular basis you have a leak and need to have the trans checked. It should not normally use fluid.

What engine?

General rule, have 6 quarts available. Put in 4 quarts, check level. If still low, add quart. Start engine, run for a minute. Stop, re-check oil level and fill to point on dipstick.
