Engine oil viscosity, or thickness, has an effect on fuel economy and cold-weather operation (starting and oil fl ow).

Low-viscosity engine oils can provide improved fuel economy and cold-weather performance.

When choosing an oil, consider the temperature range your vehicle will operate in before the next oil change.

Then select the recommended viscosity from the chart above.

The initialization (engine oil data resetting) of the recorded value can be performed using the following procedure:

  1. Switch the ignition OFF.
  2. Switch the ignition ON with the selector pressed, and press and hold the selector for about 5 seconds until the master warning light   flashes.

Inspecting Engine Oil Level


NOTE

(SKYACTIV-D 1.5) When inspecting the engine oil level, pull out the dipstick straight without twisting. In addition, when inserting the dipstick, always insert it without twisting so that the “X” mark faces the front of the vehicle.

  1. Pull it out again and examine the level.

    The level is normal if it is between Low and Full.

    If it is near or below Low, add enough oil to bring the level to Full.

  1. Make sure the O-ring on the dipstick is positioned properly before reinserting the dipstick.
  2. Reinsert the dipstick fully.
