The video above shows you how to add oil to your 2017 Toyota Corolla iM. Before adding oil to your Corolla iM, make sure that your engine was cold and that your car was parked on a level surface when you checked the oil level otherwise you won't be able to tell if your Corolla iM has a low oil level. For most Toyotas, if your oil level is at the minimum mark on your dipstick, you should add about a quart of oil. If you are unsure how much oil to add to your Corolla iM, add a little bit at a time and check your dipstick frequently. This video shows you where the oil fill cap is located on your Corolla iM and how to add oil. Adding too much oil to your Corolla iM can be harmful, so it is easiest to add a little at a time.
