Your vehicle's warranty may be invalidated if damage is caused by using oil that does not meet the required specification.


Failure to use an oil that meets the required specification could cause excessive engine wear, a build up of sludge and deposits, and increase pollution. It could also lead to engine failure. See LUBRICANTS AND FLUIDS.


Overfilling with oil could result in severe engine damage. Oil should be added in small quantities and the level rechecked to make sure the engine is not overfilled.


It is essential to use the correct specification oil and to make sure the oil is suitable for the climatic conditions in which the vehicle is to be operated.

  1. Turn the oil filler cap counter-clockwise to remove.

  2. For engines with a dipstick:

    Add oil to maintain the level between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick.


    The approximate quantity of oil required to raise the level from MIN to MAX on the petrol engine dipstick is 0.85 litres and on the diesel engine dipstick is 1.8 litres.

  3. For engines with an electrical monitoring system:

    Add oil, as indicated by the engine oil level indicator messages in the Message centre.

  4. Clean up any oil spilled during topping up.

  5. Check the oil level again after 5 minutes.

  6. Refit the oil filler cap by turning clockwise.
