Oil and filter replacement

Prolonged and repeated contact with mineral oil will result in the removal of natural fats from the skin, leading to dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains potentially harmful contaminants which may cause skin cancer.
Exercise caution in order to minimize the length and frequency of contact of your skin to used oil. Wear protective clothing and gloves. Wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water, or use water-less hand cleaner, to remove any used engine oil. Do not use gasoline, thinners, or solvents.
In order to preserve the environment, used oil and used oil filter must be disposed of only at designated disposal sites.

Inspection

1.
Check the engine oil quality.
Check the oil deterioration, entry of water, discoloring of thinning. If the quality is visibly poor, replace the oil.
2.
Check the engine oil level.
After engine warm up stop the engine wait 5 minutes then check the oil level. Oil level should be between the "L" and "F" marks on the dipstick. If low check for leakage and add oil up to the "F" mark.
Do not fill with engine oil above the "F" mark.
Selection Of Engine Oil
Recommendation :
5W-20 / API SM, ILSAC GF4
(If not available, refer to the recommended API or ILSAC classification
API classification: SL, SM or above
ILSAC classification : GF3, GF4 or above
ACEA classification : A3, A5 or above
SAE viscosity grade : Refer to the recommended SAE viscosity number

For best performance and maximum protection of all types of operation, select only those lubricants which :
1.
Satisfy the requirement of the API or ILSAC classification.
2.
Have proper SAE grade number for expected ambient temperature range.
3.
Lubricants that do not have both an SAE grade number and API or ILSAC service classification on the container should not be used.
