Should You Check Your Oil When The Engine Is Hot or Cold?

Checking your oil doesn’t really have to do with the engine’s temperature, though the recommendation favors a cold engine. Here’s why.

It Pours Oil Into the Pan

A running vehicle circulates oil across the engine for flawless performance, and letting it cool down, pours it all into the pan, offering accurate readings.


It Doesn’t Burn Your Hands

Checking the oil in a hot engine will burn your hands and not provide accurate readings, which won't even leave you in a mood to recheck the oil.


How Can You Check The Oil Yourself?
