Two human hands perform a check of the amount of engine oil using a dipstick.

What’s the proper way to check your oil to get an accurate reading?

The oil, as most know, is the lifeblood of the engine. Without proper oil, a vehicle simply will not last long. With this in mind, it’s important to check your ride’s oil level periodically.

Unfortunately, a variety of conflicting information is available on what is truly the proper way to check one’s oil. Today, we’re going to present to you our own view on the matter. The following is how we believe you should check your oil in order to receive an accurate reading.

How to Check Your Engine Oil

  • Step Zero: Have your car parked on a level surface. Wait long enough to cool your engine. It’s generally recommended that one’s engine be cold when performing an oil check. However, many modern vehicles are calibrated so that the dipstick will read correctly even with a warm engine, so this may not be necessary.
  • Step One: Locate the dipstick under the hood. It should be on top of your oil tank. Typically, it’s topped with a bright yellow ring.
  • Step Two: Pull the dipstick out and wipe it off with a towel or rag. This first look will give you a hint at what your oil level may be, but don’t take it too seriously. The oil is likely splashed all over due to the engine having been running.
  • Step Three: Reinsert the dipstick in the tank. Push it all the way in.
  • Step Four: Pull the stick out again and check the oil on the end. Look for the markings that indicate oil fill levels. These are usually designated by a dot or a line. Ideally, your oil level should be at or near the top marking.
  • Step Five: In addition to checking the oil level, make sure the oil is nice and clean. If the oil is grimy, black, thick, gritty, milky, or some other similar adjective, it’s probably time to get it changed. Healthy oil is light-colored and transparent.
    • Also, check that the dipstick is nice and clean. If the dipstick is discolored or dark, it means that the car hasn’t had regular oil changes.
  • Step Six: For best practice, wipe the stick off and check it a second time. Again, ensure the oil is right at the full mark.

Time for an oil change? Schedule it today at our Pohanka Mercedes-Benz Service Center!

How often should you check your oil?

We recommend checking your oil once per month. For a specific oil change interval recommendation, consult your owner’s manual. If you don’t have the physical manual, it can likely be located online via a Google search.

Oil changes are just one of the many services available at Pohanka Mercedes-Benz.

What’s there to do for New Year’s Eve on the Delmarva Peninsula?

New Year’s Eve 2020 Events and Celebrations on the Delmarva Peninsula

There’s a fair amount of fun times to be had in Salisbury and beyond for New Year’s Eve this year. To help you decide what to check out, we compiled a few unique choices below that leapt out at us. Even if you didn’t score those tickets to see Phish at Madison Square Garden this time around, you can still ring in 2020 in memorable fashion. Read on to find out how.

[ Get More Info About Where to Go on this Beautiful Peninsula on our Blog! ]

Berlin New Year’s Eve Celebrations

  • Where? 1010 William Street, Berlin MD
  • When? Kids – 5 to 7 pm; Adults – 10 to 12 pm

For NYE 2020, Berlin will be transforming its Main Street into a miniature Times Square. In fact, we consider it to be even a step beyond Times Square. How, you ask? Because Berlin will be featuring not just one, but two ball drops at their celebration. The first ball will be for the kids at an earlier hour, and the second one will take place at the stroke of midnight.

Music, food, refreshments and entertainment are all slated to come together to make the Berlin NYE event a memorable party. Alcohol will be making its rounds once the adult celebration begins at 10 pm. If all goes well, attendees will be dancing in the streets as if Jerry Garcia were back from the dead.

Roaring 2020s NYE Dinner & Party

  • Where? The Counting House Restaurant & Pub, 18 The Circ, Georgetown DE
  • When? Dinner starts at 5 pm. Music in the Pub begins at 9 pm, and the party lasts until 1 am, January 1st.

The Counting House Restaurant & Pub, up in Georgetown, is the place to be if you want to ring in the next round of the roaring 20s in classic 1920s style. Chances are, you weren’t present for the first “Roaring 20s,” so don’t miss your chance to experience the second.

The night will begin with a special dinner menu from Chef Bill. Dinner reservations are required for this bit. Music in the Pub begins at 9 pm, and the party keeps going until 1 am, January 1st. Attendees can also head out to the porch at midnight to watch the ball drop on the Circle.

Crisfield New Year ’s Eve Oyster Drop

  • Where? Crisfield Library, 100 Collins Street, Crisfield MD
  • When? 9 pm until 12 am

Ever wanted to experience New Year’s Eve at a library? We’re going to assume the answer is yes. The event will be mostly indoor, where guests will get to enjoy complimentary pizza and snack foods in addition to a limited amount of beer and wine. At midnight, there will be a sparkling juice champagne toast in which all ages may partake. Attendees can also head outside at this time to witness the “oyster drop.”

What are the different classes of Mercedes-Benz cars?

At first glance, the multitude of classes that make of the Mercedes-Benz lineup can seem overwhelming. But trust us: it’s not (quite) as scary as it looks. Once you dive in, you realize it’s an elaborate code that, like a foreign language, makes sense once you learn it.

  • GLA – SUV
  • GLB -SUV
  • GLC – Hybrid SUV, coupe
  • GLE – SUV, coupe

What’s new for the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class?

2020 C-Class Vs. 2019 C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class keeps getting fancier. We loved it last year, and this year’s array of models bring even more improvements. Read on to fill your mind with what’s new on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

[ View Our New Mercedes-Benz C-Class Inventory ]

For 2020, the C-350e EQ Power hybrid is back, and it has more power. Most of last year’s Premium package contents are now standard, along with a digital instrument panel and 18-inch wheels.

Those are the biggest changes to the 2020 C-Class. It’s part of the fourth generation of the line that was introduced for 2015. Drivers will still find plenty to love, including a meticulously crafted interior, cutting edge features and technology, sharp styling, and the choice of several powerful engine options.

For 2019, some sizable changes came to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. Front and rear exterior styling was refreshed, and a new turbocharged standard engine was provided. The infotainment system was fitted with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and driver assistance features were enhanced throughout. Buyers will be happy to find that all these lovely improvements are carried over for the 2020 incarnations of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

When will the next generation C-Class be released?

Rumor has it that a revamped Mercedes-Benz C-Class will appear at the Paris Motor Show occurring on September 29th, 2020. Information could be revealed online a few weeks earlier. It’s also whispered that the lineup will include a new All-Terrain variant serving as an SUV-inspired machine; think of something that would rival the Audi A4 Allroad.
