How to check your oil

To check the oil level in your engine, the vehicle must be on level ground, with the engine off and cold.

  • Remove the dipstick.
  • Clean it with a cloth.
  • Put the dipstick back and wait a few seconds before removing it again.
  • Compare the oil level with the "MIN" and "MAX" marks.
  • Add more oil if the level is below the "MAX" mark.
  • Pour the oil gradually.
  • Check the level again and repeat the operation until the level reaches the "MAX" mark but without exceeding it.
  • Replace the dipstick.
  • Check your oil every 2000 km or before a long trip.
