Witzenburg, Gary. “These Are 6 of the Best Synthetic Oils for Protecting Your Engine.” Car and Driver, 11 Oct. 2019, www.caranddriver.com/shopping-advice/g24400723/best-synthetic-motor-oil/.


 

  1. Check engine or oil light is one of the most obvious ways to know that you need to change the oil, its a light that comes on in the car when it’s time for the oil to be changed, this feature usually comes in more newer vehicles.

  2. Weird sound from the engine that sounds like knocking, the engine provides lubricant but when it’s dirty or low on oil the engine will start making a knocking sound and if not taken care of immediately can be harmful to the car.

  3. Color of the oil is also an inductor you can use to know when you need to change it, if the oil is really dark it’s time for a change.

  4. Having a smell of oil inside the car is another indicator that your running low on oil.

  5. Driving a lot of miles that month is another indicator that you should not only check but also possibly change the oil especially if you have a turbo car check your oil often because turbo vehicles are known to eat a little bit of oil.
