How to Check Your Engine Oil

Last updated 5 years ago

It only take a few minutes to check your oil, but that short amount of time can save you a lot of aggravation and hundreds or even thousands of dollars in repairs. If you are not sure how to check your engine oil, watch this helpful video.

After you park the car and turn off the engine, open the hood and remove the dipstick. Wipe off the dipstick, slide it back in, and pull it out again. This will give you a better reading of the amount of oil inside the engine. If the oil is below the “Add” or “Fill” line, you will need to add oil to protect your engine.

This video will help you take care of your car, and Top Driver can help you stay safe while behind the wheel.
