engine oil


Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 06:34 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In my 00 Chevrolet Tahoe how do I know I need
engine oil by looking at the panel?

3 Answers


Its best to check it from the dip stick on passenger side engine. the panel on dash are light that come on for different reasons like when to change oil, add oil, oil pressure low, these are intended to be used instead of your own judgement in checking to see if your engine needs attention it is simply safety measures. You should be checking and servicing the engine and transmission as normal not going by lights on a panel those are merely back up systems that sound off when they detect a problem. I will add a link below to the owners manual.
