Checking the oil level in your car is not something that many drivers think about that much. Particularly, if you have a modern car where you have an electronic display and it tells you that you have a certain number of miles before you need to check your car in for an ‘oil service’.
However, prior to the advent of electronic displays, we all knew that good car care included frequent oil changes if we were to keep our cars on the road, problem-free, for longer.
That’s still true today. Even nowadays, frequent oil changes will flush abrasive dirt and metal particles out of the engine prolonging its life. This is especially true if you drive regularly in stop-and-go traffic, like you might do on a daily commute or school run.
So, to keep on top of your oil situation, how about getting into the habit of checking your engine oil levels every other time that you go to fill-up your car with fuel?
