Question about 2000 Isuzu Rodeo

1 Answer

I added too much oil what to do?

Ok so I checked my oil level and it read low the vehicle was off and cool. I added oil until it read full. I cranked my car with no problems, I got not even a half a mile away from the drive and it started stalling and running very rough. I pulled over and read the dipstick and it was high i got underneath and immediately drained the excess oil now it is just under full with vehicle being hot running temp. But the vehicle has a stuttered start and once cranked on low idle is running rough enough to stall out which is odd for an automatic i think. I checked the dipstick and there is no froth as if it were areated by the crankshaft. What to do and where to start on getting my vehicle back to what it was two hours ago.. Plz help.

Why do I have only Intermittent heat with new thermostat?

Sounds like an air pocket in the coolant system. Those can be a pain, some cars have bleed valves to help. If there is an air pocket, it will seem to be full of coolant, but when the air pocket gets to the heater core it gets stuck there and guess what? No heat, because you won't get any heat unless hot coolant is in the heater core. Old fashioned way is to open the system and keep pouring coolant in at operating temp with heat on full until all the air is pushed out. If it has a bleed valve that can be helpful. Have seen this problem on many vehicles.

Low oil pressure reading

check that the oil level is not over the mark as this causes foaming of the oil and loss of pressure. At 80km/hr you will be doing around 3 grand and that will be enough to whip the excess oil into froth.. Too much oil is worse than too little oil.

I have a 200 ford expedition 5.4 liter and I can only check my oil level only if I have my truck and if its cut off my oil stick will not display any oil and the stick, only when its crank. I also have a...

02 sensors will not cause your vehicle to stall if they are bad enough to stall vehicle then your check engine light would be on. if the oil level only reads when vehicle running then ADD OIL ASAP. the level is very low. your dipstick checks level in pan once all oil drains back to pan with vehicle off. your oil is constantly flowing when vehicle running. that flow is splashing the oil up high enough that you are seeing it then. once truck is off all the oil drains down to pan and means level is so low not hitting the dipstick. If no reading when truck off you may need atleast 2 quarts of oil. Start by adding one quart to see if you get a reading. keep adding until you do. do not check immediately after shutting vehicle off. you have to give the oil time to drain back down to the pan. DO NOT KEEP DRIVING THE VEHICLE THAT LOW ON OIL YOU WILL BLOW YOUR ENGINE.

Engine oil pressure light came on. I checked oil levels and added 1/2 ltr. Light went out and didn't come back on. tune up to be done on Tuesday next week. I suspect it might be the oil filter. Should...

If your oil level is full, light is off and no abnormal engine noises, if should be ok to drive to the shop. If light does come on, stop the engine. I would also have the shop check your oil pressure with a manual gauge, to determine the exact oil pressure reading. This could save you from major engine failure due to low oil pressure. I hope this helps.

I have 99 grand prix, the motor is ticking and there's a symbol on the left hand side of the gauge that looks like fliter what does that means

if it is this

Than it either means you are out of oil, have no oil pressure, or the oil sending unit is bad.

Since you hear an unusual noise from the engine I would bet that it is either out of oil or there is not enough oil pressure to lubricate the engine. Either way it should not be driven until the oil level is checked. If low add oil until the dipstick reads full. If you have added four quarts than the oil pan was empty and the lack of oil was causing the light to come on. Start the vehicle. Is the light out and the noise gone?

Take a peak under the car to see if you can see oil dripping. If it is do not drive until until the source of the leak has been found and repaired.

Where is the transmission dipstick in my manual 1.3 liter 1993 suzuki swift located and where do i fill it up?

LEVEL CHECK With Oil Level Gauge Fig. 1: Manual transaxle oil level check - with level gauge 84241046.gif
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. With the engine stopped, remove the oil level gauge front the side case of the transaxle.
  3. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  4. Wipe off oil level gauge with clean cloth.
  5. Fit the oil level gauge to the transaxle side case so that the threads rest on top of the case.
  6. Remove the gauge and check oil level. The level should be between FULL and LOW level line.
  7. If the level is below LOW mark, add oil until the proper level is reached.
With Oil Level/Filler Plug
  1. Drive the vehicle to bring the transmission up to operating temperature.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the transaxle oil level/filler plug.
  4. Check the color and smell of the oil. If it is black in color or smells burnt, further transmission service is needed.
  5. Transaxle oil level should be even with the bottom of the plug hole. If oil level is low, adjust oil level accordingly.
  6. Install transaxle oil level/filler plug and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  7. Lower the vehicle.

Low oil level light

When going around the corner it could have possibly moved the oil far enough away from the level that it's reading was low going around the corner but then getting on to a level surface evened it out. You shouldn't have checked it immediately when you got home. Wait until the engine cools down then check it,

Good Luck...

My car has a oil leak and i added a quart the other day and now the oil light is flashing and remaining lite sometimes. i checked the oil and there is actually a liitle over full in it.

Over-full can be just as bad as under-full. The crank will make contact with the oil and cause a froth of oil and air. Air is a very poor lubricant and will cause serious engine damage. Park the vehicle on a perfectly level surface and shut the engine off. Wait at least 30 minutes and then check the oil level. If it is over-full drain out enough to get it down to the full mark. Never ever over-fill an engine. Your car holds 4.5 quarts with filter change.
