Every Time I pull My Dip stick Out 2 Check Oil There's a Note at Da Bottom....Says "Be Back Later"

Mr. Justin - Nice presentation....basically. Could you please redo your vid.... Explain to those who are not Automotive Chairperson of anything.... Should the vehicle should be parked level, for oil level check? What would be the difference in level on the dipstick, for an overnight, cold engine - & a hot engine, given a few minutes to drain down? Would an apprentice, get "Booted-Up"? If he dropped a drop of oil? - Not holding the dipstick horizontal - Tissue under?

Does your engine need to be hot or cold when you check your oil?

Changing oil every 3,000 miles is excessive and unnecessary.

Never follow sticker...manufacture know better...

Always follow the oil life monitor...never change early

Never never change every 3000 miles...all oil changes except on turbo charged engine can easily go 5000 or more

I think I am doomed with my 2010 xrs. It has 215K kilometers on it and for the last 20k or so kilometers it is burning oil like a crazy. A liter every 1000km or so. I know the repair costs are astronomical so I wont bother with the new engine. Do you think it can last another year or so if I keep topping it up every couple of weeks? Or it will get worse to the point where it lose a litre say every 200km or so.

Baba Zehri Try high mileage oil. It will probably decrease your oil consumption.

Problem with modern vehicles is that they now burn more oil than cars 7-10 years ago. Burning 1 quart every 1000 miles is now normal.

It’s a real shame that shops trick unknowing customers in regard to oil change intervals. No car sold with fully synthetic oil will ever need changing prior to 10000mile or 16000km. Most car manufacturers actually allow for 20000mile or 30000km or bi-yearly. Most oil changes are excessive and pollution for the environment. The exact same make and model in Europe will have different recommendations than the US simply because manufacturers are unwilling to fight the dealerships in US as they make so much money off of the service intervals.

For people that dont drive optimal conditions, not worth waiting that long to change oil.. Its better for the environment to use a little more motor oil than to scrap the broken engine
john Ervin (2 months ago)
Agreed...if it ain't dirty it don't need changing

I’d still change the engine oil every 5-7.5k miles as a little early wouldn’t hurt.

When i check the oil the gauge smell gazoline, is that normal ?

My oil at about 4000 miles has a red tint to it, it is not black. Does that mean anything?
Tom Hare (2 months ago)
It means your oil is starting to get dirty and will need to be changed soon. That is if you're checking the oil dipstick and not the transmission.
Antonio Stewart (2 months ago)
That’s transmission fluid not oil

mario torres it mean you had to change the oil as recommended

An Engine replacement at only 3000 dollars you are kidding right ? Any engine will cost at least 10000 dollars.
john Ervin (2 months ago)
Depends on the engine...some are crazy expensive

seeeLAH1 your safe don't worry.
Arthur Smith (2 months ago)
Kory En no should be no harm quart or so over. Go on YouTube and in the search bar put in Bob Likis on over filling oil. They call it a forgiveness amount. A quart low won't hurt anything either.
seeeLAH1 (3 months ago)
hmm is that true? cause I did oil change and I added one bottle of 6 cylinder engine restore... I hope that bottle wasn't enough to really over fill.
Arthur Smith (3 months ago)
Kory En a quart is no big deal. It's called a forgiveness amount. Check Bob Likis video on over filling oil
