The video above shows you how to add oil to your 2005 Ford Five Hundred. Before adding oil to your Five Hundred, make sure that your engine was cold and that your car was parked on a level surface when you checked the oil level otherwise you won't be able to tell if your Five Hundred has a low oil level. For most Fords, if your oil level is at the minimum mark on your dipstick, you should add about a quart of oil. If you are unsure how much oil to add to your Five Hundred, add a little bit at a time and check your dipstick frequently. This video shows you where the oil fill cap is located on your Five Hundred and how to add oil. Adding too much oil to your Five Hundred can be harmful, so it is easiest to add a little at a time.
