How To Check Your Oil Level

The fluids in your car are essential for the running of your engine - but one of the most important types of fluid to monitor is your oil level. Checking your oil level is something anyone can do - and by doing so, you can improve your car’s performance greatly, while protecting you against unexpected breakdowns.

Checking Your Oil Level

Your oil level being either too high or too low can spell trouble for your car. To check your oil levels, do the following:

  1. Park your car on a level surface and wait for the engine to cool down.
  2. Locate your dipstick, which should be on top of your oil tank. Typically, your dipstick is a bright yellow ring.
  3. Pull your dipstick all the way out, and wipe it off with a rag or cloth.
  4. Insert the dipstick all the way in, and pull it out.

Wiping the dipstick is important because during the operation of the car, oil can splash onto the car, making your reading inaccurate. Your dipstick reading should range from L to F. L being low, and F being full. It’s best to fill your engine close or at to the F mark, but be careful not to overfill.
