Mitsubishi Outlander: Engine oil

To check and refill engine oil

The engine oil used has a significant effect on the engine’s performance, service

The engine oil used has a significant effect on the engine’s performance, service life and startability. Be sure to use oil of the recommended quality and appropriate viscosity.

All engines consume a certain amount of oil during normal operation. Therefore, it is important to check the oil level at regular intervals or before starting a long trip.

1. Park the car on a horizontal surface.

2. Switch off the engine.

3. Wait a few minutes.

4. Remove the dipstick and wipe it with a clean cloth.

5. Reinsert the dipstick as far as it goes.

6. Remove the dipstick and read the oil level, which should always be within the range indicated 7. If the oil level is below the specified limit, remove the cap located on the cylinder head cover and add enough oil to raise the level to within the specified range. Do not overfill to avoid engine damage. Be sure to use the specified engine oil and do not mix various types of oil.

8. After adding oil, close the cap securely.

9. Confirm the oil level by repeating step 4 to 6.

Use only the recommended oils with an ACEA or API classification as specified in this manual.

NOTE:

● Engine oil consumption is greatly influenced by payload, engine speed, etc. Depending on how you drive, it can reach 1.0 lit./1,000 km.

● The engine oil will deteriorate rapidly if the vehicle is subjected to severe conditions, requiring earlier oil replacement.

Please refer to the maintenance schedule.

● For information on how to dispose of used engine oil.

Recommended engine oil viscosity

Use engine oil conforming to the following classification:

• “VW 50501/50601”.

NOTE:

● Use of additives is not recommended since they may reduce the effectiveness of additives already included in the engine oil. It may result in failure of the mechanical assembly.
