How to check the oil in a car depends on the vehicle make and model. Many newer vehicles have digital dashboard monitors, so drivers can quickly and conveniently stay updated on their vehicle’s motor oil. But, if you need or want to check your oil level manually, below are the steps for the general process:
Whether it’s a digital dashboard monitor alert or a dipstick reading of “low,” you may discover it’s time to add motor oil. Always use the grade of oil — usually 0W-20 or 5W-30 — recommended by the manufacturer. If you’re unsure, or you can’t find your owner’s manual, eel visit your local Jiffy Lube® service center and a trained technician can access this information for you.
Be sure to have a funnel handy to avoid spills.
