Monitoring your oil is an easy task. Open your car's hood and look for the oil dipstick. Depending on the make of your car, this could be located in several places. If you aren't sure where it is, consult your car's owner manual. Once you've found it, take out the dipstick. Using a paper towel, wipe all the oil off. It is usually easy to do this at a gas station because they generally have paper towels available at the gas pump. Then, put the dipstick all the way in and then take it back out again. Look at the indicator etches at the bottom of the dipstick. It will tell you how much oil is currently in your engine. Could it be time for an oil change? It's possible to change your oil at home, and our video about how to change your oil will help.
