Before you start, park the car on level ground. Make sure the engine has been switched off for at least five minutes.
Open your bonnet and locate the dipstick. It is usually brightly coloured to make it easy to find. Pull the dipstick out of its tube.
Wipe the oil off the dipstick using a clean cloth. Look for the oil level marks on the end of the dipstick.
Check your existing motor oil level by pushing the dipstick slowly all the way into its tube, then pulling it out again. The oil level should be between the upper and lower marks. If the level is near the lower mark, you need to top up with the appropriate engine oil for your engine.
If you need to top-up your motor oil, place your dipstick back into its tube and remove the oil filler cap, which is usually on top of the engine. Check your car’s handbook or your Haynes Manual if you’re not sure. Pour in some oil, using a funnel if necessary. Wait a few seconds for the oil to drain down to the bottom of the engine, and then re-check the level. Don’t overfill - this can cause leaks.
