It sounds like you have a severe oil leak. If adding oil and it still is at the bottom of the stick, make sure the stick is inserted all the way into the tube when checking the level. If it is, begin looking under the car and under the hood around the engine to see if there are obvious signs of an oil leak. When the light comes on, it is an indication of a loss of oil pressure. No oil pressure will result in catostrophic damage to engine internals.
If you can change the oil yourself, try to verify how much oil comes out when you drain it. Then fill with the recommended amount of oil and monitor it daily. If it starts out reading full on the stick but begins dropping as you drive it, keep it topped off and get it to a mechanic.

I have a 1992 Bounder Fleetwood Motorhome with the Chevy 454 engine. I changed the oil and filter, but I am not sure how much oil to put back in. I'very added over 10 quarts of oil and it does not register...

Can you measure how much was drained by filling gallon or quart jugs? Most of these units have oversized oil pan to allow for extra oil. At ten quarts you should be seeing it on the dipstick. I don't believe that it will hold more than twelve quarts.

Oil light never came on, I decide to put 4 quarts due to it being 10 months since change, since doing so low oil light has come on

4 quarts means that youve got one serious leak and your slicking up the roads for every body... you should get out some tools and see what you can snug up to slow the leak, as for the light, your driving a cheap vehicle so what do you expect ?

How much oil is in the 2011 Vulcan Voyager 1700

Add the 5.3 quarts then start the engine. Let it run for about 2 or 3 minutes then shut it off. Let stand maybe 30 seconds to one minute then check it. I made the same mistake and was over filling. The 5.3 quarts should bring you to the normal level if you check it warm. Not to hot like after a ride. You will burn yourself on the dipstick. When the oil is cold and has been siting in the bike it will read very low on the stick.

How much transmission fluid does my car hold?

I assume you are talking about an automatic transmission?
If this is the case then the torque converter is what holds most of the fluid. I am sure it holds at least for quarts. After you have added that much you can then start the engine with the emergency brake on and the gears in the neutral postion. Check the dip stick to see if any fluid is showing on the stick yet. If not then add another quart and so on until you see the first signs of fluid on the dip stick. Once fluid is apparent on the stick then you will switch to pints. The dip stick reads in pints unlike the oil dip stick which reads in quarts. So just keep adding a pint until the dip stick shows you the full mark. Remeber this is done while the motor is running and the gears are in the neutral positon with the emergency brake on. I hope this helps you, Raz

Oil capacity

4 quarts if you want to make sure put 3 1/2 quarts first then check the oil level with the dipstick. If still a little low then add the rest. It's 4 quarts though for a 2.2 l size engine.
