SOURCE: how many quarts of oil does a honda civic need?

Your Civic will most likely take 4-4 1/2 quarts of oil with a new filter. You may want to double check this with your owner's manual to be sure.

I hope this helps! :)

SOURCE: oil leaking from car. always have to put in 2

Well go find a clean driveway to park on for a while and let it idle. See if there is any oil on the ground and what part of the engine it's underneath if you see any. There are other places you get loose oil if you dno't see it leaking. The valve guide can be worn and let oil directly into the cylinders, If it's turbo-charged the turbo can leak oil into the intake manifiold and burn it in the engine but this problem usually creates a lot of smoke from the exhaust. The rings on the pistons can be worn out and are not scraping the cylinder walls like they should and letting the oil get on top of the piston where it burns while running. Check your tail pipe and see if the inside of it is oily. Doing those things should tell you if it's a leak or if the oil is being burned. Then you can ask further questions about the problem based on what you learned from this suggestion. LUCK

2001 ford taurus wagon when i start it it clicks new battery.however to much oil was in car.drained all put 2 new quarts still wont start

If you tried to run the engine with too much oil in it, the oil could have filled the cylinders. Pull the sparkplugs out and crank it over to check. Oil could also have filled the air cleaner and intake manifold. Open up to check there, too.

How minny quarts of oil dose a 96 olds aurora hold

A typical automobile holds 4-5 quarts of oil.....Depends on the size of motor. If changing yourself, Drain out all oil, change filter, put oil plug back in. Put 3- 31/2 quarts back into car. put oil cap on and start car. Let run for 2-3 minutes then shut back off. Wait for a few. Pull out dipstick wipe, put back in then pull out a second time...Now you know how much you need to top off level.

I don't know how much oil i need for an oil change

With oil filter you'll need 5 quarts. After changing oil and filter run briefly and check for leaks. Shut down the engine and check oil level is correct.
I hope this may have helped,

Hi michelle2551,providing the oil dipstick is the right one for your car then if it reads 1/2 qrt low it should be topped up typically when an oil change is performed and the car is started it will fill the oil filter therefore appearing a little low, it may read full initially but once it is run and shutoff it reads low follow the manufacturers oil level indicator and top it up hope this helps good luck
