Be careful not to burn yourself, as the engine oil is hot.
  1. Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature.

  1. Stop the engine.

  1. Remove the oil filler cap (on rocker cover) and the drain plug (on the oil pan). Drain the engine oil.

  1. Re-install and tighten the drain plug to the specified torque.

    Drain plug 35-45 Nm ( 350-450 kg·cm, 25-33 lb·ft )
  1. Fill the crankcase with fresh engine oil through the oil filler cap opening.

    Dry fill
    4.3 lit (4.5 U.S.qts., 3.8 Imp.qts.)
    Drain and refill: (Without oil filter
    3.7 lit (3.91 U.S.qts., 3.25 Imp.qts.)
    Drain and refill: (With oil filter)
    4.0 lit (4.23 U.S.qts., 3.51 Imp.qts.)
    Do not overfill the crankcase. This will cause oil aeration and loss of oil pressure.

  1. Start and run the engine.

  1. Stop the engine and then check the oil level. Add oil if necessary.

  1. Position the vehicle on a level surface.

    If a vehicle has been out of service for a prolonged period of time, warm up the engine for approximately 20 minutes.
  1. Stop the engine, and wait 2 or 3 minutes, then check the oil level after engine oil drains to the oil pan.

  1. Check that the engine oil level is within the level range indicated on the oil dipstick. If the oil level is found to have fallen to the lower limit (the L mark), refill to the "F" mark.

    When refilling, use the same type of engine oil.
  1. Check that the oil is not dirty or contaminated with coolant or gasoline, and that it has the proper viscosity.
