How Does One Check The Engine Oil Percentage Level In A Car?

how does one check the engine oil percentage level in a car?

Why Is An Engine Oil Change So Important?

A key component of your vehicle is engine oil. Whether it’s keeping the lubricating sections of the engine or keeping it cooled, the engine oil is the lifeline of your vehicle. The oil helps the engine in a number of ways. It helps defend the engine by keeping it clean from debris, which defends the engine’s operation. Oil reduces friction and wear, which can also enhance the fuel performance of your car. Lastly, it reduces the heat within the engine and redistributes it to other components of the engine. If you are worried about the status of your engine oil, contact our service department for a vehicle inspection.

How to Read Engine Oil Level Using a Dipstick?

Consistently checking the engine oil level can help the driver maintain proper oil levels and help safekeep oil health. To start testing, it is best to check the oil when the engine has cooled down to not touch hot engine parts. When checking the oil, most dipsticks have lines to display if the oil level is too low and needs to be topped off. Also when using the dipstick, you can look at the oil texture. If the oil is smooth and a lighter color, it shouldn’t be changed. However, if the oil is darker and looks sludgier, then it should be replaced.

How to Know if You Have an Engine Oil Leak?

Engine Oil Leak Detection

If your dipstick consistently displays low oil levels then it’s possible that you may have a leak. There are a number of ways to test for oil leakage, which is important because a leak could cause damage to the vehicle’s engine. If there are dark puddles under your car, this could be a result of its oil pan slowly leaking oil. A smell of burning oil or smoke from the engine could be an essential sign of an oil leak. Also, the engine overheating could possibly be a result of an oil leak.

How Many Months Until Oil Change?

How Many Miles Can You Go Over Oil Change?

Learning when to replace your vehicle’s oil is also crucial to negate harm to the engine in your vehicle. While some may recommend a short oil change interval from 3,000-5,000 miles, it’s recommended to have your oil changed every 5,000 to 7,000 mi. or six months, whichever comes first. However, if you’re unsure about when you should have an oil change you should reach out to our service department for more accurate info about your vehicle.

The gentleman in F&I didn't try to sell me on anything I didn't want. The entire process was very low pressure. I will buy from A Bob Howard Dealership family in the future.
