To ensure your vehicle is always filled with the best motor oil not only should you have it routinely changed, but you should also check it yourself. By doing an inspection once every month, you can monitor its condition and catch any problems that may pop up. During your next inspection, make sure you pay attention to these qualities of your motor oil!
When looking at the motor oil, you want to pay attention to its appearance and texture. It should have a clear, amber color to it and feel slimy & smooth. If you notice that it has taken on a dark appearance and gritty texture, that signifies that the oil must be changed. If you see this, don’t worry, as this is how motor oil should look like after numerous cycles through your engine. You should only be concerned if you see and feel big metal flakes in the oil, which indicates a major problem within the engine.
Unlike transmission fluid, motor oil is commonly consumed or burnt up by your engine so you will need to refill it to ensure it’s at a proper level. When looking at your dipstick, the oil stain should be at or right underneath “FULL” (this indicator will vary based on your vehicle). If it is, then your motor oil is at a good level. If it’s at or below “LOW,” then you will need to add more fluid. Make sure to add in a little at a time, as you can easily pour in too much motor oil, which is just as bad for your engine!
