Here are a few tips to know if your oil is still working for your vehicle:
At least every other time you fill up at the gas pump be sure to check your dipstick (wear the necessary protection).
- If your oil is gritty between your thumb and fore finger this can indicate that you have a saturated oil filter and therefore debris is circulating through your engine. This can also be a symptom of a larger problem and should be inspected by a professional sooner rather than later.
- Does your vehicle’s dipstick carry the faint smell of gasoline? This can indicate several larger problems and should be inspected as soon as possible.
- Discoloration in your oil can also be a sign that there is another substance combining with your oil which can harm your engine.
