Engine oil level: checking
Note the following:
– After shutting off engine, wait at least 3 minutes so that the oil
can flow back into the sump.
– Pull out dipstick, wipe with a clean cloth and push dipstick in
again to limit stop.
– Pull dipstick out again and read oil level.
♦ Oil level must always be in area A for the delivery inspection.
This way, you will achieve the greatest possible customer sat‐
♦ The oil-change quantity in the service table was determined
experimentally and is sufficient for the technical functionality
of the engine in all operating conditions. During all other serv‐
ice events, the oil level must be checked and corrected as
necessary if the customer requests this. This enables an ad‐
ditional topping-up to the specified oil quantity to the upper limit
of the dip stick. Due to tolerances, the oil temperature and the
drip time, various quantities may be required for topping up.
