Passo 14
It's time to put in fresh oil. Use a diesel rated oil. Consult your owner's manual for what viscosity to use based on your climate. Where this car is located, 15w40 works year round but a thinner oil such as 0w40 could be helpful for cold starts in very cold climates.
  • It's time to put in fresh oil. Use a diesel rated oil.

  • Consult your owner's manual for what viscosity to use based on your climate. Where this car is located, 15w40 works year round but a thinner oil such as 0w40 could be helpful for cold starts in very cold climates.

  • Start by putting in about 5 or 5 and 1/2 quarts. Wait a few minutes to let it run down to the oil sump. Then put the oil cap on and start the engine. Make sure oil pressure shows on the gauge fairly quickly. Then let it run for about 1 minute. This will fill the filter housing back up with oil.

  • Then turn off the car and check the oil level. If it's low, add no more than 1/2 quart at a time until it's full. It will take between 6 and 6 and 1/2 quarts. If you want some guidance on checking oil level see the oil level check guide.

  • Never over-fill a diesel engine with oil. It can lead to catastrophic engine failure due to a runaway engine scenario.
