Check the oil level of your vehicle

It is very important to take care of our vehicle, simply because our life is on risk if our car has not been checked properly.

You should check your engine oil leven every time you fill your car with gas. Cars low on oil can become seriously damaged. Here is how you check the oil leven in your car:

  • Open the hood.

  • Find the oil dipstick located underneath the hood, usually toward the front.

  • Pull out the dipstick and clean it off with a rag.

  • Replace it all the way into the chamber and pull it put again.

  • Look at the dipstick. The oil level should fall in between the upper and lower limits.

Now, if you do need oil because the level is low, you will need to add more. Check with your car's manufacturer or in the owner's manual for the correct grade of oil. This is very important, every vehicle is different.

Here is how to add oil to your car or truck:

  • Locate the oil filler cap. It should be near the dipstick and clearly marked 'oil'.

  • Unscrew the cap and set aside.

  • Carefully pour in a small amount of new oil. You may want to use a funnel.

  • Recheck the oil level using the steps listed earlier.

  • You will want the oil level to fall halfway between the maximum and minimum marks on the dipsticl. If the level is not between the guidelines, repeat steps three and four until it is.

  • You can also check to see if your oil is dirty by spreading some of it (from the dipstick) on a piece of white paper and comparing it to some fresh oil. If your oil looks dirty, it is time to change it.

If that's your case, you may need to find an oil change station, the prize is usually pretty affordable and the process is fast.
