HOW TO CHECK OIL IN YOUR CAR ENGINE:

To last longer, your engine must always have the proper level of oil. As you drive, some amount of oil is consumed and the oil level drops. As a result, the friction increases and the engine wears faster. By checking the oil level, you can catch if it’s getting low early and top it up. You also can see how dirty your oil is and if it’s time for an oil change. First, check your owner’s manual, as it contains the proper instructions and safety precautions. Your engine needs to be warmed up and the car should be parked on a level spot.

Shut the engine off and set the handbrake. Wait for a couple minutes to allow the engine to cool down. Open the hood and locate the engine oil dipstick; in most newer cars it has a yellow handle that says ‘Engine Oil’. Your owner’s manual has a map of the engine compartment within the ‘Do-It-Yourself Maintenance’ section. The oil dipstick and the oil filler cap are marked on this map.
Pull the dipstick out. Be careful, some parts of the engine could still be hot. Hold the rag or towel under the lower end of the dipstick so the oil won’t drip onto the engine.
Wipe the dipstick out with a clean lint-free rag or paper towel. 
  Insert the dipstick back into the tube until it’s fully seated.
  Pull the dipstick out again and check the oil level. The dipstick has two marks that stand for “Low” and “Full.” The oil level should be between those marks.  In some cars, a dipstick has a cross section instead of marks; in this case, the level should be within the cross section. Once again, if in doubt, check your owner’s manual. After you’re done, make sure to put the dipstick back in its place.
HOW TO READ THE OIL DIPSTICK:
  In this car, oil looks clean and the oil level is FULL.  Good job; keep driving.
  Here, the level is okay, but oil looks dirty. It’s a good idea to have the oil change done soon.
  This oil is very dirty and the level is below the LOW mark. It’s time to change your oil.
  This oil looks a bit dirty and the level is low. You may want to top it up. If it’s been a while since your last oil change, consider booking an appointment for your next oil change.
   

SUMMING UP:

For most,here’s all you need to know: Buy a brand – name oil that exactly matches your engine manufacturer’s specifications and certification requirements, and change your oil according to the maker’s recommendations. That will allow your engine to offer maximum performance and last as long as possible. Disastrous consequences await those who deviate from the manufacturer’s recommendation.
