It is well known that the most important maintenance step you can take to keep your car running smoothly and efficiently is to change the oil regularly. Some vehicles may have longer replacement intervals, while some older vehicles or cars with higher mileage may require more frequent replacement.
How do I know when to take your car for an oil change?
CHECK YOUR OIL REGULARLY
We can not emphasize enough the importance of checking the oil level regularly. Oil is necessary to keep the engine running smoothly. If the oil is not enough or dirty, the parts will not be lubricated. If not handled properly, you may suffer serious injury. Check your oil:
First, remove the dipstick.
WIPE with a paper towel or cloth and place in a reservoir.
Take it off again and check it on the dipstick.
