I'll recommend you to check our oil level early morning. That is the time when whole oil gathered in engine and presenting the correct level of oil in your engine. So, If oil level is low you can even change it at your home by the help of oil filter wrench only. But don't try if you are not enough trained because it will take your lots of time and you may face leakage.

Checking oil level on a Dodge Nitro.

To assure proper lubrication of your vehicle’s engine, the engine oil must be maintained at the correct level. Check the oil level at regular intervals, such as every fuel stop. The best time to check the engine oil level is about five minutes after a fully warmed up engine is shut off. Checking the oil while the vehicle is on level ground will improve the accuracy of the oil level readings. Always maintain the oil level within the SAFE zone on the dipstick. Adding one quart of oil when the reading is at the bottom of the SAFE zone will result in a reading at the top of the safe zone on these engines.

Overfilling or underfilling the crankcase will cause aeration or loss of oil pressure. This could damage your engine.

Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 6,000 miles (10 000 km) or 6 months, whichever comes first.
