English term or phrase: She checks the oil.
OK... THIS is the last one... please?

Picture of a woman checking the oil of her car. Now, car oil, engine oil, is "ladi mixanis". However, when we omit "mixanis", don't we say "ladia" in the plural?

Would you agree with the translation of the above as "elegxei ta ladia"?

Thank you, guys!
