    See “Recommended fluids/lubricants and capacities” in the “Technical and consumer information” section of this manual for drain and refill capacity.

    The drain and refill capacity depends on the oil temperature and drain time. Use these specifications for reference only. Always use the dipstick to determine when the proper amount of oil is in the engine.

  2. Start the engine. Check for leakage around the drain plug and oil filter. Correct as required.
