A: Checking the oil level is important anytime...

Checking the oil level is important anytime the low oil light comes on.

  1. Park the vehicle on a level area for a true reading of the oil level.

  2. Warm up the engine for a few minutes and shut it off. Wait for at least five minutes, so that

the oil in the engine can drain back down into the pan.

  1. Use a cloth to prevent oil from dripping on the engine components. Pull out the dipstick.

  2. Wipe off the dipstick with the cloth.

  3. Place the dipstick back into place completely.

  4. Pull out the dipstick and read the oil level.

  5. Replace the dipstick back into place.

Tip

Contact a mechanic if the oil level is low to make sure there is no leak.
