It is important to regularly check the oil level in your 2017 Ford Escape to make sure that it is not running low and to prevent any mechanical issues. Here are some simple steps on how to do that:
1. Locate Dipstick
Open the hood of the vehicle and locate the dipstick. It will be located between the engine and the firewall.
2. Remove Dipstick
Pull the dipstick out and wipe off the oil with a rag or paper towel.
3. Replace Dipstick
Put the dipstick back in, making sure that it is all the way in.
4. Check Oil Level
Pull out the dipstick again and check to see how far up the stick the oil level is. If it is in between the two hash marks on the side of the dipstick, then the oil level is normal. If it is lower than the lower mark, then you need to add more oil.
5. Checking Oil Life
Check the oil life on a 2017 Ford Escape by pressing the reset button alongside the oil life meter on the dashboard. It will display the percentage of oil life remaining in the engine. This should be checked two or three times a month to make sure that the oil is not getting too old.
