When changing your oil if you add 5 quarts of oil will it hurt the car?
Not if 5 quarts is the correct amount. When you overfill the crankcase by a half quart or more, then you risk "foaming" the oil. If the oil level gets high enough, the spinning crankshaft can whip the oil up into a froth, like the stuff that sits on top of your cappuccino. And the problem with that is that the oil pump can't pump froth. Therefore it is just as bad as having no oil. Why not just put in the correct amount and not take the risk. An owner's manual will tell you the correct amount without any the guesswork. If you don't have a manual, add 4 quarts when changing the oil/filter. Start the engine and let it run for 20 seconds. Shut it off and wait 3 minutes, check the level and top it off. If it's overfull with 4 quarts (unlikely), drain it all and start over with 3. You will then know how much it takes.

How many quarts of transmission fluid do you need to put in a 2000 ford explorer xls after you change the transmission pan and filter?
Typically 8.5 quarts. The CLK 500 doesn't have a dipstick so you have to use the dash display. After draining the oil add 7.5 quarts then check the display with the car OFF and LEVEL. If the computer sensor says it is good -press on. If it is low add a .5 quart at a time. It is a slow process but easier than having to drain oil out.

Most all V8 & inline 6 cylinder engines required 5 quarts with filter change. Just park the car on a level surface, drain the oil and replace the filter. Add 4.5 quarts and start the engine and let run for 60 seconds. Shut off and wait 1 hour. Check the level and add as necessary. You now know the capacity.
It holds 4.5 quarts of oil so if it is 1 quart low it now only holds 3.5 quarts. So alway be sure and keep it at least above the add mark. Check the oil regularly and add when it gets to the add mark. Always check the oil level with the car parked on a level surface or you will get a false reading. Do not overfill!!!

I just changed the brake fluid on my 1987...I bought two quarts and have most of one of 'em left, and I bled each wheel twice. I have a power bleeder, though; if you're changing it with the two-person method - one sitting in the car pumping the brakes, one at the wheels with a wrench and bottle - you'll use two quarts.
Easy to find out. Park the car on a level surface. Drain the oil and change the filter. Add 4.5 quarts of the correct weight oil, start the engine and run for 2 minutes. Shut down, wait 30 minutes and check the oil level. Add as necessary to reach the full mark on the dipstick. You now know the capacity.
