When it comes to protecting your engine, maintaining your car’s motor oil is critical. Motor oil is the lifeblood of your Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicle and helps to keep the engine’s internal parts and you moving through the streets of Altoona.

The first step is to start by checking your owner’s manual for the automaker’s recommendations; some newer vehicles don’t use traditional dipsticks and have electronic oil monitoring systems instead. For vehicles that do use dipsticks follow these simple steps:
There will be some way of indicating the proper oil level on the dipstick. Commonly there will be either two marks or a cross-hatched area, if the oil on your dipstick is within either of these areas the oil level is good. If it isn’t, you will need to add more oil a little at a time until you’ve reached the proper level on the dipstick. Also, be sure to follow the oil grade recommended in your owner’s manual.
Although checking oil is often overlooked, it is essential to your vehicle’s performance and maintenance. Generally speaking, you should be checking the oil on your car once a month and having the oil changed at least twice a year. Doing so will ensure that there are no leaks and that your car has enough oil for all your Johnstown travels. However, if your car’s hood is hot to the touch or you see steam coming out from under the hood, schedule a service appointment as soon as possible. This could be an indicator that the engine is overheating or that you have an oil leak.
Each vehicle has a specific process for resetting the oil change light, however, the general process is the same. It is very important that you only reset the oil change light if you have actually changed your oil. Resetting your oil change light without changing the oil can cause you to miss an oil change in the future and damage your vehicle in the long run.
