When inspecting your oil levels, you need to make sure that the volume is not fixed farther down than the point set apart at the base on your dipstick. And remember to not over fill as well.

The shade of the oil should not be overlooked. In the instance that it is deep in colour does not really mean that it ought to be changed. You need to figure out for is how light, and how dusky (filthy with particles to the touch) the oil is. Month to month inspection of oil is generally excellent to screen if there is oil leak anyway.
