Re: New Driver Here =)

a lil more info on your car (year and model specifically) is usually required, but since this is such a general question, a general answer will suffice:

the dipstick should have two clear indicators showing low and high: be it two dots, or a cross-thatched area, or anything else. the oil should be in the middle of the two marks (holes, in our case)

More details = More help my friend, but Neck is right about the oil.

Re: New Driver Here =)

I bet only 3 people know why my friends call me Edge, but it doesn't really matter if you don't know because I don't care what you call me.
