1. Park your vehicle on a clean, flat surface and let the engine cool  down for a few hours.                                                                             
  2. Open the hood and locate the oil dipstick. Remove it and wipe it clean with a rag or paper towel.                                                                     
  3.  Reinsert the dipstick and remove it again. Look at the end of the dipstick to see if the oil level is within the recommended range.     
  4. Check the engine block and surrounding components for signs of oil leakage. Look for any drips or puddles of oil on the ground under the vehicle, as well as any oily residue on the engine block, hoses, or other components.                                                                 
  5. Check the oil filter, oil pan, and valve cover gasket for signs of leaks. These are common areas where oil leaks can occur.                 
  6. If you suspect a leak, you may want to use a UV dye kit that can help pinpoint the location of the leak. Add the dye to your engine oil and run the engine for a short period of time. Then, use a UV light to detect any areas where the dye is visible.

If you find an oil leak, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible. Driving with low oil levels or an oil leak can cause serious damage to your engine over time.
