On recently topping up my daughters peugeot 107's engine oil (0.5L), the reading on the dipstick now appears to be slightly above maximum. Do I need to drain this off/is there danger of engine damage?

1/4" or less is not a problem but anymore could be, as there won't be enough free air in the sump to allow for breathing and it may burn more oil than normal. Otherwise, no problem.

How much oil do i put into a 2007 pug 207 1.4


The quoted capacity is just under 4 litres including a filter change.

I put 3.5 litres in, start the engine check the oil light goes out after a few seconds, check for leaks from the filter, then switch off engine.

Wait at least 3 minutes, check oil level on dipstick and top up to maximum.

How to check engine oil in scooty pep plus


Locate the oil dipstick which will be made of black plastic with a raised lip for turning. The dipstick will either be under the seat on the top of the engine or on the lower side of the engine. Once located, unscrew and wipe off excessive oil. Reinsert dipstick but do not screw it in, then remove the dipstick and hold it horizontal to read the level, which should be between the two marks on the end. If the oil level is near the bottom mark, add enough oil to increase it as close to the top mark without exceeding the top mark.

Where does the transmission fluid go


Automatic transmission fluid goes into the same tube the transmission dipstick occupies. It's slightly larger than the oil dipstick and is commonly located further back in the engine compartment than the oil dipstick. You should make sure not to overfill the transmission fluid. Add only until it appears between the indicators on the trans. fluid dipstick.

02 Volkswagon passat, My oil light cums on flashing yellow for a couple of seconds when i start my car why is this ??


Then the minimum engine oil level has been reached. You should check the engine oil level on the dipstick, and fill up with new oil until maximum level mark on the dipstick, but not above the max. oil mark!
Then everything will be all right, and oil yellow light will turn off.

How much oil do I put in the car when changing the oil?


if changing oil filter roughly 4 litres, if not 3.5.......when refilling put at least half of usual store bought container in and then add some more, bit by bit, constantly checking on dipstick that not going above maximum level. If changing filter, remember to re check after has been running for 2 mins as filter will fill up with oil and always to do top up to final level when engine is warm!!!

CHECK OIL LEVEL FOR CAMRY


Hi, Here are a few steps to help you with this issue.

Step1 c0d5c2621e60088a1_thumb.jpg Make sure your car is level. Any angle can give a false reading. Warm the engine. TURN THE ENGINE OFF. Now wait for a while, to let the oil to come down to the pan.(5 minutes is enough) Now, find and pull out the oil dipstick. If you can't find oil dipstick, check the owner's manual. You will find it on the top of the engine with a brightly colored handle that says "Engine Oil. Step2 07cb03604f4a35b81_thumb.jpg Now pull the dipstick out of the engine and wipe off the oil on the stick. Be careful this oil will drip. Once the stick is clean reinsert it in the engine. Step3 a378a48854d5e3a81_thumb.jpg Now, pull the dipstick again and check the oil level. It should be at "FULL" or slightly below the "FULL" mark. If it's not below or at the "ADD OIL" mark its OK. It is good to top it. However, this is hard to do without overfilling. If you overfill, the engine will just kick out the excess oil and may leak it on your driveway. If you wait to the add oil mark, your engine will normally take one quart. Step4 Check the oil condition: If it's really black, it's time to change it. Normally you keep track of the mileage since last oil change. CHANGE YOUR OIL BASED ON, TIME IN ENGINE AND/OR MILAGE AS PER THE MANUFACTURERS SPECIFICATIONS. If it's slightly-brown, it's probably O.K.
If it's white (coffee or milk color) it means the engine has a problem. Coolant has mixed with the oil due to an internal engine problem, like a blown head gasket or worse. Call a mechanic. Step5 To top off the engine oil you need to know the oil brand and viscosity. Usually, indicated on the last oil change receipt. If you don't know this, it's best to change the oil and put in one brand.
Find the add oil cap. Again refer to the owners manually. It is usually labeled "ADD OIL" or "OIL"

Add a little amount of the oil. Wait for a minute to let the oil get to the pan. Again check the oil level. (steps 2 & 3) If it's still low, add some more. Don't overfill! Remember to reinstall the dipstick and oil filler cap when you're finished.

Please rate and god bless.

Hyundai excel - leaking oil


wheretheoilis.jpg This section only applies to wet sump engines - the type found in most consumer vehicles. For more info on sump types, see Wet sumps vs. dry sumps below.
To a lot of people, this little section could be categorised by the rearranging the words "granny eggs teaching **** your to". But you'd be surprised by the number of people that don't know how to do even this basic task. When checking the level of oil in the engine, the car should be on a level plane, and should be relatively cold. I've run into several people lately who insist in keeping the crankcase topped off completely, and they invariably check the dipstick just after shutting down the engine. Reading the oil in this way results in an erroneous reading because a quantity of oil (usually about half a litre) is still confined in the oilways and passages (galleries) of the engine, and takes some time to drain back into the crankcase. (On the image, the blue areas are where oil is likely to still be running back down to the sump). On seeing what appears to be an abnormally low level on the dipstick, these people then add more oil to the oil filler at the top of the engine. The oilways and passages all empty, and suddenly the engine becomes over-filled with oil, going way above the 'MAX' mark on the dipstick.
