Notes

  • It is normal for new oil to turn black pretty quickly, but that doesn’t affect the quality. 
  • After you add oil, you should wait a couple of minutes for the oil to get to the oil pan before you make another measurement. 
  • Checking the oil level right after you turned off the engine can give you inaccurate measurements. That's why we recommend you should wait at least 10 minutes after you turn the engine off. 
  • Do not drive if the oil light stays on. If the oil light stays on, it means low oil pressure or no pressure which can lead to catastrophic engine damage.
