Checking the oil is easy, and should be done with regularity, so that you’re never driving with unsafe levels of motor oil. Here’s how to check your oil.

  1. Wait about five minutes after driving your vehicle. You want the oil to still be warm, but not hot.

  2. Pop the hood and prop it up.

  3. Locate the oil dipstick.

  4. Remove the dipstick, wipe it off with a rag or paper towel, and place it back in its canister.

  5. Remove the dipstick a second time, and note whether the oil level is below the minimum level.
