Where is the oil dip stick located on 2002 cavalier 4 cyl


If you can't see separate oil dipstick (usually has an yellow plastic handle), then your oil level dipstick is connected to oil filler cap. When you unscrew the oil cap you'll be able to see the dipstick and level meter.

How do you check the transmission fluid level


you don`t say kind or model of car so this will be generic. with the car on a level surface running and warm, find the transmission dipstick tube, remove the dipstick wipe it off re-insert and pull out check the level at the end of the stick with it facing down so oil won`t run up the dipstick giving the wrong level. there should be markings on the end of the dipstick that will indicate from low oil to proper oil level. also smell the oil if it smells burnt have the transmission service done(change oil and filter). it should be a reddish colour not brown or dark in colour.

HOW DO I check the oil on 2002 FLHTCUI


Ride until engine is at normal operating temperature, locate oil filler plug/dipstick on right side of vehicle at top of transmission case, to remove the oil filler plug, pull steadily while moving plug back and forth.
With the vehicle at operating temperature and resting on the jiffy stand on level ground, allow the engine to idle for 1-2 minutes, the turn the engine off, pull out the dipstick, wipe off the dipstick and insert it back into the oil pan with the plug pushed completely into the fill spout, then remove the dipstick and note the level of the oil.
Add only enough oil to bring the level to the FULL
mark on the dipstick. See Figure 1-2. Do not overfill.

Check oil level dipstick qt


Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

Fxdb oil level check


Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on later models unscrews, on earlier models it just pulls out with moderate force, on Softail and Sportster models the dipstick is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck and have nice day.

Oil capacity for 2000 HD FLH


I'm pretty sure it's three quarts. However, the bike is equipped with an oil dipstick. Change the oil and add three quarts of oil. Check the oil level with the dipstick while it's on the sidestand. There are two marks on the dipstick, the upper mark is "FULL HOT", and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between the two lines by checking the oil level when the oil is hot. Do not overfill.

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995



OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif
