Always be sure to clean the area
around any filler plug, drain
plug, or dipstick before check-
ing or draining any lubricant.
This is especially important in
dusty or sandy areas and when
the vehicle is used on unpaved
roads. Cleaning the plug and
dipstick areas will prevent dirt
and grit from entering the
engine and other mechanisms
that could be damaged.
ance, however, higher viscosity engine
oils are required for satisfactory lubri-
cation in hot weather. Using oils of any
viscosity other than those recommend-
ed could result in engine damage.

: For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil
of a viscosity grade SAE 5W-30 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However,
if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the proper
engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
