Check old Engine Oil

Once all of the old engine oil has drained into the waste oil pan, check the surface of the pan for debris, you may find some very small carbon deposits but anything else may indicate a problem with the engine.
Ensure that correct methods are used for the disposal of the waste Oil.


Oil Filling X Type drain oil
Fill with 5 L of suitable engine oil (see table)


Filling the engine with oil

With filter and drain plug secure, clean off any spillages or drips from the exhaust components, and return the vehicle to level ground.
Fill the engine with 5 L of suitable engine oil (see table or details here ). 5 L of oil should just fill the engine to the lower dip stick mark (A), allow all oil to drain down for 5 mins then top up as required to level (B).

Starting the engine after an oil change

With Oil filler cap and dip stick in place, start the engine. It is likely that the oil light will remain on for 2-3 seconds after the engine is started this is normal, then it should extinguish. Run the engine gently at less than 1000rpm for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the engine and allow it to stand idle for 5-10 minutes then top up oil level as required.
