I would take the engine apart and investigate, urgently before the main bearings get mangled!

SOURCE: i need to put oil

Did you try pulling on the cap? Turning right or left? Your question is confusing ... I am not familiar with a "KA" PC Lap top ... I presume you are actually talking about a car and not a computer. Typically, cars have a "oil can", as you describe, on the oil filler cover.

Thanks for your question @

8. If level is too low on dip stick and is not at full level go back to step 1

These steps ensures you avoid over filling the engine with oil

Tip for beginners
The 4 litre oil bottle is way too much oil for an engine to handle.
If you have a full 4 litre oil plastic bottle square shape . hold the bottle on its side to pour the oil out slowly and smoothly.

Where do i find the dip stck for the gear box oil . and where do i refill with new oil?

The Sportster does not have a dip stick for the transmission/ primary oil. You just pour one quart of oil in through the upper inspection hole.

On a Big Twin, there is a chrome endcap on the right side of the transmission. In the end cap, there is a plug that usually takes a large hex key or Allen wrench to remove. It has the dip stick on it. Stand the bike straight up to check the oil level. It should be between the two lines on the stick. The transmission holds 20-24 ounces of transmission lube.

Good Luck

There is a dip stick located on the right side of the engine about 4 inches to the front of the oil fill cap.

Make sure you are on level ground. Unscrew the dip stick and wipe it off. Replace the dip stick and then remove again. Check the oil level and replace. If you need to add oil, remove the filler cap and add oil 1 to 2 ounces at a time. Check the oil dip stick to ensure that your oil level is correct.

NOTE: warm up your bike before performing the above checks.

NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CHANGE ALL OILS 2005 Electra glied classes harley

The oil tank is on the bottom of the transmission. The engine oil drain plug is on the left front corner of the oil tank. Drain the oil, change the oil filter, and refill with three quarts of any approved 20W50 weight engine oil. Check the oil level using the dip stick. The dip stick is located on the right side of the transmission. The oil cap is a large cap (2" or 50mm in diameter) with knurled edges on it. The dipstich has two marks on it. The top mark is 'FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Keep the oil level between these two marks. Check the oil level with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck

We just bought a 05 chevy equinox 2 days ago. Last night the "service engine"light came on. My husband went to check the oil and cant find the dip stick.

If you don't tighten the gas cap (make it click at least four times) when refueling it will turn the check engin light on. The dip stick is located in the front of the engine and is a yellow loop.
