Running the engine with a low oil level can cause engine damage.
The Oil Alert system (applicable types) will automatically stop the
engine before the oil level falls below the safe limit. However, to
avoid the inconvenience of an unexpected shutdown, always
check the engine oil level before startup.

Oil Change

Drain the used oil when the engine is warm. Warm oil drains
quickly and completely.
1.
Place a suitable container below the engine to catch the used oil,
then remove the oil filler cap/dipstick, oil drain plug and washer.
2.
Allow the used oil to drain completely, then reinstall the oil drain
plug and new washer, and tighten the oil drain plug securely.
Please dispose of used motor oil in a manner that is compatible
with the environment. We suggest you take used oil in a sealed
container to your local recycling center or service station for
reclamation. Do not throw it in the trash, pour it on the ground,
or down a drain.
3.
With the engine in a level position, fill to the upper limit mark
(bottom edge of the oil fill hole) on the dipstick with the
recommended oil (see page ).
Running the engine with a low oil level can cause engine
damage.
The Oil Alert system (applicable types) will automatically stop
the engine before the oil level falls below the safe limit.
However, to avoid the inconvenience of an unexpected
shutdown, fill to the upper limit, and check the oil level regularly.
