Engine Oil

Refill Clean the oil drain plug and its mating surface on the engine sump. Fit the drain plug, complete with a new copper washer and tighten to 24 lbf.ft (33 Nm).

Refill the engine with fresh oil, suitable for the climatic conditions in which the vehicle is to be operated (see ‘LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS’, page 239).

Oil filter renewal NOTE: To avoid draining the oil pump, it is essential that the engine is filled with oil to the correct level, before the filter is removed. It is therefore recommended that the engine oil is renewed before work on the filter commences.

DO NOT overfill the engine! Remember that a little oil will always remain in the engine after draining and that, therefore, the quantity of oil required to refill the engine will be slightly less than the full capacity quoted in ‘CAPACITIES’, page 240.

CAUTION: Oil levels above the MAX mark may cause engine damage, in which case some oil must be removed from the engine by a service technician.

After filling, allow a few minutes to elapse before checking the level on the dipstick (this will allow all the oil to drain into the sump and enable a true reading to be obtained). Once the correct level of oil is shown on the dipstick, replace the filler cap.

Start and run the engine. Do not rev the engine until the oil pressure warning light extinguishes. Check for oil leaks around the drain plug.

Stop the engine, wait a few minutes, then check the oil level and top up if necessary.
