Open the hood of your car. Usually, there is a lever to pull inside of the car.
Then, there is a safety release in the hood you have to pull out.
Pull out the dipstick.
Wipe off the extra oil.
Stick the dipstick back into the car.
Pull out the dipstick and read the amount of oil that is shown towards the end of the dipstick. If it is in the middle of the max and min lines, then your oil level is perfect!
Then, wipe off the dipstick and stick it back into the holder.
Sometimes, there's a rod to hold up your hood while you're working
