1984 4X4 V8. It has a pre-80's dipstick tube on driver's side and in the eng block. I tried a 19 & 21 dipstick and neither one shows a reading. Is it dry?

The only way to know for sure is to remove the oil pan drain plug and drain the oil. Then refill the engine with the correct amount of oil. Then see what the dipstick reads. You might want to invest in the right dipstick tube and stick as one to short will cause you to overfill the engine and one to long will cause you to short the engine on oil and burn it up.

How do i check oil on rieju marathon 450

Should be a dipstick up in front of the fuel
tank. These have oil in the frame and use
a dry sump oiling system. Run it for
a few minutes then check. Only holds about
1 litre of oil total so don't overfill.
It will only show oil on the dipstick after
running a bit as the oil needs to be pumped around
the system to be accurate on dipstick reading.

Volkswagen beetle problems

Two possibilities I can think of.. Dipstick not fully inserted... or is it possible that you have overfilled the crankcase with oil??? On my VW, I learned the hard way to take special care when checking the oil level with the dipstick... I had to fully remove the dipstick... clean it off... and THEN reinsert it... and pull it back out.. and then look to get an accurate oil level reading... It must have something to do with how the dipstick tube runs down into the crankcase....

I did an oil change on my subaru legacy 2000 and now it's starts but once it's in reverse or drive it wont

I would bet you drained the transmission oil and not the engine oil. It is a pretty common mistake.

How much oil did you add when you where done. is the oil level on the oil dipstick now reading overfilled? Is there any fluid on the transmission dipstick?

2006 chevy aveo. the dipstick reads oil is full. but there is oil in the spark plug holes.did the mechanic overfill last oil change. that was 4000kms ago. dipstick still reads full oil

You have oil in the plug holes because the seals that are supposed to keep oil out are leaking-you need to remove the valve cover to replace them.

How much oil does XR 400 2004 model take

If you are just changing the oil 1.8 quarts.
If you are changing the oil and filter 1.9 quarts.
If you disassembled the motor 2.3 quarts.
Use only JASO MA certified motorcycle oil. Remember to run the motor for 5 minutes before checking the oil level at the dipstick. The frame neck is where the dipstick is located. If you check the level with out running the motor you will read no oil on the dipstick and will probably end up overfilling the engine with oil.

Oil dipstick gives bad reading. get different readings when checking fluid level.

Check oil on a level surface, and when cold, before start up. That will give the highest level posible, because you dont want to overfill. Overfilling will cause a number of problems.
Have in mind that checking oil on a hot engine, one that has been just turned off, will have a lot of oil on the top part of engine, that has had no time to drip down, and will give a low reading.

How do you read the oil level correctly on dipstick to 1995 Saab 900S?

All dipsticks have an upper and lower mark ..the top mark is the full mark and the lower mark is the add oil mark. Check it with the engine off on level ground.  Also after the motor running at take a few minutes for the oil to return to the oil pan to get an accurate reading.  
Do not overfill.
