Locate the engine oil dipstick
Withdraw and clean with tissue paper
Look at the end of the dipstick, the oil level should be comfortably between the min and max points. Reinsert the dipstick fully and withdraw, check the oil level. Should the level be at minimum, a top-up is needed
Locate the oil filler cap and turn it anticlockwise to open
Carefully add the oil, mop up any spills with a paper towel. Add about a cupful at a time and recheck 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. Finally recheck the oil level again on the dipstick
Always replace cap and dipstick securely
