    Very noddy oil level question

    Question is; oil level is just on the L on the dipstick. How much oil do I need to put in to fill it up to the H mark? Don't want to overfill it is all!

    pour a bit in, wait a min let it drain to sump, pour a bit more, until you have the level you want, if the cars been running the wait a few min for the oil to drain back to sump before topping up........ then find out why you are loosing oil

    The top part of the dip stick reads about 1 ltr of oil, it's so people are aware that the oil level has dropped an amount without being at a dangerous level. It wont make any difference if you put 200 to 300 mls of extra oil in. Mine usually has 4 ltrs in it. The motor only takes 3.7ltrs which is a pretty small amount compaired to other 4 cylinder engines

    Good bitch. She did exactly as she was told.

    She just didn't do it right.
