How long should you wait after putting oil in your car?
Similarly, you may ask, how long after putting oil in car can you drive?
If you've just driven your car, wait for 5-10 minutes before you check your oil level, or check it first thing before you use the car.
Beside above, can I put oil in my car right after I turn it off?
Yes you can, but under the following condition. After you turn off your car, let it sit for a minimum of 10 minutes so that the oil in the top of your engine has a chance to drain to the bottom of your engine. This allows you to get an accurate CURRENT oil level reading on your dipstick.
Start your car's engine and let it run for a few minutes. Always make it a point to run your engine for a couple of minutes after every oil change. This is to allow the new oil to circulate throughout the engine including the oil filter and the journals. This is also a great chance for you to check for any leaks.
