Engine Oil Level

  

Be sure that the vehicle is on level ground.

Warm up and stop the engine, and then wait for 5 minutes.

2.

Turn the engine off and wait for a few minutes (about 5 minutes) for the oil to return to the oil pan.

3.

Pull the dipstick out, wipe and re-insert it fully.

4.

Check that the oil level is between the "L" level mark and "F" level mark on the engine oil level gauge.

5.

If the level is low, check for leakage and add oil up to the full level mark.

  

Use a funnel to help prevent oil from being spilled on engine components.

  

Do not fill the engine with oil to above the full level mark.

Engine Oil Appearance

Check engine oil for white turbidity or heavy contamination.

2.

If engine oil becomes turbid and white, it is highly probable that it is contaminated with engine coolant.

Repair or replace damaged parts.

Replacement
[Gamma 1.6 MPI]
  

Prolonged and repeated contact with mineral oil will result in the removal of natural fats from the skin, leading to dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains potentially harmful contaminants which may cause skin cancer.

Exercise caution in order to minimize the length and frequency of contact of your skin to used oil. Wear protective clothing and gloves. Wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water, or use water-less hand cleaner, to remove any used engine oil. Do not use gasoline, thinners, or solvents.

In order to preserve the environment, used oil and used oil filter must be disposed of only at designated disposal sites.
