Learn how to get oil in Car Mechanic Simulator.
Engine oil is an engine’s lifeblood, and without it, an engine will not last very long as engine components inevitably sheer against each other without a lubricating agent. Unfortunately, oil doesn’t last forever and will eventually have to be replaced with new oil.
Car Mechanic Simulator lets you experience draining and refilling a car with new oil. But where do you get the oil to put in your car in-game? This quick guide will walk you through how to get oil in Car Mechanic Simulator.
How do you get oil in Car Mechanic Simulator?
In short, you cannot get oil in Car Mechanic Simulator, as it is provided for you automatically whenever you need to refill a car’s engine with new oil.
Engine oil and other fluids are regular maintenance items that you will encounter regularly in Car Mechanic Simulator. However, even though the game tries its best to give its player a step-by-step experience of fixing and maintaining cars in the game, it doesn’t go as far as to require you to provide oil for your cars to perform oil changes.
Before you can “get oil” to add to your car, however, you first need to drain the car of the old oil using the Oil Drain Tool. After you drain the old oil, you must locate the Oil Fill Plug to refill the engine with new oil.

Oil change jobs are routine maintenance work you often encounter as you play through Story Missions or take on Job Orders. Therefore, knowing how to change a car’s oil is important so you can check off oil changes from the job list and move on to more important repairs.
