When it comes to vehicle upkeep, checking the oil level is among the most important tasks, as it’s vital to the smooth running of your car’s engine. It is also one of the simplest aspects of vehicle maintenance to address, and takes no time at all to complete, once you know how.
We recommend checking your BMW or MINI’s oil levels once a month, and before you set off on a longer journey. The dipstick can be found under the bonnet within the engine bay, and this is used to measure how much oil remains. By pulling this out, cleaning the oil from it and reinserting before removing again, you can see whether or not you need to add oil to the tank – there are high and low markers clearly indicated at the base of the dipstick. The oil tank’s cap is clearly marked, and all you need to do is twist it off and pour in the required amount of oil.
No matter how many miles it has covered, a regular oil change will help to ensure continued high performance from your BMW or MINI, and it also contributes to efficiency, lower emissions and extended engine life. For a detailed step-by-step guide to checking your car’s oil level, take a look at the video above.
