Oil Light. When your car’s oil light comes on, pull off the road as soon as possible. Park on a level surface and turn the engine off. Then check the oil dipstick to see if you are running low. The dipstick usually has an orange handle marked “Oil.” Pull the dipstick out and clean it with a cloth. Then put the dipstick completely back in and pull it back out again. Don’t turn the dipstick upside down, or oil will run down the stick and you’ll get an inaccurate reading. To check the oil level, look for two marks at the bottom of the dipstick. If you see oil residue between those two marks, then your car has enough oil. If the oil residue is below the bottom mark, then your car needs more oil (no more than one quart of oil should be added at one time). If your dipstick is completely dry, then your car probably has dangerously low levels of oil. If your engine runs out of oil, not only can it suddenly stop while you’re driving (causing a safety hazard for you and drivers near you), but it will probably sustain expensive damage. So, to help avoid unnecessary danger and cost, take your car in for a regular oil change service in Frisco, TX.
