Hello people of the internet I have been a lurker for quiet some time and was wondering how do i add oil to my engine i opened up the engine oil cap before but i wasn't to sure so i closed afterwards do i just pour the oil straight in or do i need to do something else.

It's really is that simple.
Invest in an owners manual, seriously, packed full of info, like this.
Check the oil when the car is cold. Check the oil by pulling out the oil dipstick. The oil level should be between the 2 dots, the upper dot is full, the lower dot means add oil. Add oil as needed, checking the dipstick between each pour. Give the oil a few seconds to make it down before checking the dipstick.
