Hi! This is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we will be refilling the oil. To refill my engine oil, I first need to locate my engine oil fill tube and remove the dipstick from that. Next I am going to be using a funnel just to help me pour the oil into the engine. I am actually going to start by putting about half a quart into the engine. Now this is just regular automotive oil that you would put in your car. Next I am going to put my dip stick back in and test it to see if I need to add a little more which it looks like I do. So I am going to go ahead and add more oil. Now it is very bad to get too much oil. That is why you want to double check that dip stick to make sure that you are at the full mark and not above and not below.
