The dipstick indicates the engine oil level » Fig. 128.

Checking the oil level

Ensure that the vehicle is positioned on a level surface and the engine has reached its operating temperature.

  • Switch off the engine.

Wait a few minutes until the engine oil flows back into the sump.

  • Open the bonnet.
  • Pull out the dipstick.
  • Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth and insert it again to the stop.
  • Pull the dipstick out again and check the oil level.

Oil level within range A

No oil must be refilled.

Oil level within range B

Oil can be refilled. The oil level may lie in range A .

Oil level within range C

The engine must be topped up with oil so that the oil level at least reaches range B .

The engine burns some oil. The oil consumption may be as much as 0.5 l/ 1 000 km depending on your style of driving and the conditions under which you operate your vehicle. Consumption may be slightly higher than this during the first 5 000 kilometres.

The oil level must be checked at regular intervals. We recommend it be checked after each time you refuel or prior to making a long journey.

We recommend maintaining the oil level within the range A , but not above, if the engine has been operating at high loads, for example, during a lengthy motorway trip during the summer months, towing a trailer or negotiating a high mountain pass.

The warning light in the instrument cluster will indicate whether the oil level is too low » page 36, Engine oil.
Check the oil level using the dipstick as soon as possible. Add oil accordingly.

CAUTION

  • Always check the oil level on vehicles with the 1.2 l/44 kW engine when the engine is cold. Otherwise the measuring result is incorrect und oil could be incorrectly replenished - risk of engine damage!
  • The oil level must never be above the A range » Fig. 128 – there is a risk of damaging the exhaust system.

Replenishing

  • Check the oil level » page 143.
  • Unscrew the cap of the engine oil filler opening » Fig. 126 on page 141.
