Lexus IS 2006 - 2011  | 250 Checking oil level

  • time 1 minute
  • difficulty 1
Locate the engine oil dipstick
Withdraw the dipstick and wipe clean with a paper towel
Look at the end of the dipstick. The oil level should be comfortably between the maximum and minimum points. Reinsert the dipstick fully, and withdraw, checking the oil level again. Should the level be around the minimum mark or not showing, you need to top up
If you need to top up, locate the oil filler cap
To open the oil filler cap turn anticlockwise
Carefully add the oil, and mop up any spills with a paper towel. Add about a cupful at a time and re-check the dipstick level. Add more oil if needed. Remember, it can take 30 seconds or so for the oil to work its way through the engine, so allow for this
Always replace cap and dipstick securely
