How Can I Check My Oil?
An oil change is probably the best-known automotive service out there, and the one most drivers are able to effectively stay on top of. That being said, there are still many drivers who aren’t sure when they actually need to come into for a change. The process of checking is actually quite simple, and can help you save money by avoiding any unnecessary visits to a service bay.
How Can I Check My Oil?
Position your vehicle on a level surface and turn it off, waiting for it to cool down a bit before popping the hood and locating your oil dipstick. This should be in plain sight, with a circular handle of some sort at the top that you can easily remove from a narrow tube. Pull the dipstick out and wipe it off with a clean rag before placing it back in the tube once more. Remove it a second time and take a look at it. Many of them have indicators that help you assess how much oil is left based upon how high it reaches. This quick process can almost immediately let you know if its time for a change. If this sounds like a bit too much work, you can use the more general estimate that an oil change is necessary around every six months, or 5,000 miles. Of course, be sure to check your Driver’s Manual to see the specific instructions for your model.
