You wouldn't dream of running a summertime 5K in Bentonville without being properly hydrated. Even at your best, you wouldn't perform very well. At worst, you'd do permanent damage to your body. Driving your car without enough motor oil has the same effect. Oil keeps the parts of your Acura's engine lubricated so they can operate without damage. When you know how to check the oil level in your car, you'll always know when you're ready to go.
Learn How to Check the Oil Level in Your Car
There are occasions when Springdale drivers might need to make sure they have enough oil. If the engine or oil lights come on and you're not due for an oil change, you will definitely want to check your oil levels. Here's how:

  • Make sure the vehicle is parked on level ground, and that the engine is turned off and cold.
  • Open the vehicle's hood and find the dipstick. If needed, refer to your owner's manual.
  • Pull the dipstick out of the engine and wipe any oil from the end of it.
  • Re-insert the dipstick all the way back into its tube, then pull it out and look at both sides to see where the level is.
If the top of your oil streak is between two marks or within a cross-hatched area, the oil level is good. If not, then more oil is needed. Top off with Acura Ultimate Full Synthetic Motor Oil. It's formulated especially for your car. Remove the oil filler cap and add oil a little at a time until the dipstick indicates you've reached the proper level. If you notice oil splotches on your driveway in Rogers, accompanied by surprise low oil levels, contact our service department to check for oil leaks.
