Is this the engine oil you needing to check?

Okay thank you for that, to check the engine oil level pop and raise your engine hood and with the engine turned off , locate the dipstick on the left side of the engine (marked in yellow) and pull it out and read the level. There is a full mark as well as an add mark on the stick. If the level is in between the marks your fine, if its at the add mark, at one quart. See the link below for the dipstick location.
