The filler spout tube may have pulled out of its seat push and twist to reinsert it down. if the oil is over filled you must drain some out to return it to its correct oil level, if it did pull out of its seat the small bolt holding the filler tube in place may have loosened up and fallen off it must be replaced if this happened.

Does a catera have a dip sick

A dip stick is the indicator so the opeator (driver) can check your oil. The dip stick got its name because the end "dips" into the oil reservoir, or as some call it "Oil Pan" The oil dip stick is located on the left side of the engine towards top and is colored yellow at the circular loop for a finger hole. Find your oil filler cap, where you add oil.. it will say 5/w20 or something along that number. Standing at the front passenger side of the car with the hood up look to the front left corner area about a foot into the engine compartment area. DO NOT RUN ENGINE IF YOU BELIEVE THE OIL LEVEL IS EXTREMELY LOW. You can do step 3-6 with a cold engine to guage if you are extremely low on oil before starting the car. Also note that your oil should be checked in the following fashion. 1. Make sure car is on a level flat surface. 2. Make sure the engine off but warm. Either after having driven it or running for 5 minutes. 3. Pull dip stick and wipe all oil from it with a clean cloth, paper towel, etc. I say "Clean" as you will be able to see the color of the oil and if its contaminated in any way. 4. Place the diptstick back in the tube all the way until the finger hook sets in place. 5. Remove quickly and observe reading at tip of dispstick. 6 Proper oil at this point should be 3/4 of the way to Maximum indicator. YOur dipstick may say MAX or may have two dots seperated by a hashed area. Either way you should be 3/4 of the way to the top dot or max indicator. If you arent then add the recommened oil for your vehicle (you can find the best oil for your car at www. and the proper weight and type) I would add it a half quart at a time depending you how far you are from MAX mark. If you are within 1/4 of the MIN or Lower dot.. closest to the end of the dipstick then you should add a quart fully and then add in 1/2 quart increments until you can do the test and see the oil at the proper level. DO NOT RUN CAR if you believe you are extremely low on oil.

How much gear lube do i put in the crank case of my 93 yz 250?

There is always a dip stick in the crank case to check the oil level. On the dip stick you will find two marks for Min and Max oil levels. The oil should never be more than the Max level and never below the Min level.

Reading the gauge on the oil dipstick 1998 saab 900

The dip stick end should have a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full. A level reading anywhere between the two bulbs is adequate but not optimal. Oil below the top end of the bottom bulb, means 1 quart low, and no oil at all on the bottom bulb means get some oil in there double quick.
