Checking the Engine Oil Level

  2. Check the oil level before starting the engine, or switch the engine off after warming up and wait 10 minutes for the oil to drain into the oil pan.
  3. Remove the dipstick and wipe it with a clean, lint-free cloth.
  4. Reinstall the dipstick and make sure it is fully seated.
  5. Remove the dipstick again to check the oil level.

    Note: If the oil level is between the maximum and minimum marks, the oil level is acceptable. Do not add oil.

  6. If the oil level is at the minimum mark, immediately add oil.
  7. Reinstall the dipstick. Make sure it is fully seated.

    Note: The oil consumption of new engines reaches its normal level after approximately 3,000 mi (5,000 km).
