How do I add oil to my car?

If your vehicle is low on oil, you can add more. To do so, simply remove the cap to the oil filler, and add a small amount of oil. Check the dipstick to see where the level is, and repeat as necessary.

Tip

After adding oil to your vehicle, it is imperative that you properly secure the oil filler cap.
