Checking and changing the oil
Regularly checking your vehicle’s oil levels is vital to ensure your engine’s long lifespan and to avoid mechanical trouble on long hauls. To obtain a proper reading, Forrez professionals always ensure your vehicle is standing level before checking the oil. If the oil level is low it will be topped up.
Oil has various functions:
- reducing friction
- cooling the engine
- protecting against rust
If the dipstick shows black when checking the oil, then the oil is oxidised and the oil sump requires draining before the oil is replaced. The level is checked once again before the vehicle is permitted to leave.
