4. Pull the dipstick out and look at the oil level on the end.CAUTION:
Be careful not to touch the hot exhaust manifold.
If the oil level is below or only slightly above the low level, add engine oil of the same type as already in the engine. Remove the oil filler cap and add engine oil in small quantities at a time, checking
The approximate quantity of oil needed to fill between the low level and the full level
on the dipstick is indicated below for reference.
When the level reaches within the correct range, install the filler cap hand- tight.
