#1 of 2 Isuzu Rodeo checking oil level
Feb 25, 2008 (3:13 pm)
So my mother gave me her 2000 Isuzu Rodeo a few months ago. I had never checked the oil when she had it, but when I finally did check it I couldnít get an accurate reading. The dipstick has oil at least 2 inches over the max level. I had the oil changed at a local place and the tech at the garage couldnít get an accurate reading either.
About 400 miles later I was driving 3 hours home to my parents so I added a quart of oil. My step father checked the oil for me and said I had way to much oil, but thatís the same reading Iíve always had. Now 800 miles after the oil change I hear a knocking noise until the car is warm.
Iíve heard stories of blowing your engine from too much oilÖ..but the shop put in 5 quarts and the one I added makes 6Ö..would that be too much oil and hurt the engine? And what would be causing the inaccurate oil level on the dipstick?

What do you mean by inaccurate? Is oil visible on the dipstick at all or does it fluctuate?
