Check the engine oil level? But what is that? Yes, we tend to forget that the car has an engine.

This combustion engine powers still around 98% of vehicles (electric cars are put aside) and is lubricated for maximum efficiency. The engine oil level should be as optimal. Check it every 5000 km. Do not wait until your indicator dashboard lights.

On a flat surface, engine off for at least five minutes (the best is to wait until the car is downright cold), remove the dipstick, then immerse it in place. Pull it out again. The track must be between the “mini” and “maxi”.

If the level is below the minimum, the motor is improperly lubricated. Consequence: it will wear prematurely and your fuel consumption will increase. In extreme cases, you may very well break your engine or “casting a rod.”
