Checking the engine oil is a very important part of having a vehicle. You should check your oil regularly, and always before and after a long drive. Here’s how to check the engine oil: 1. Drive your car to a flat surface. 2. Turn off the engine and wait 15 minutes. 3. Open the hood. 4. Remove the dipstick, and wipe it clean on a rag or paper towel. 5. Reinsert the dipstick. 6. Remove the dipstick again, and observe where the oil lies between the minimum and maximum lines. 7. If the oil is below the minimum line, add more by opening the oil cover and adding oil. Frequently check the oil levels as you add oil, so that you don’t add too much.
