Oil level too low
Low oil pressure
High oil pressure
No oil pressure
Start the engine and let it idle for a few minutes.
Stop the engine, remove the oil filler cap/dipstick and wipe clean.
Check the oil level with the oil filler cap/dipstick by inserting it without screwing it in.
If the oil level is below the lower level mark on the dipstick, fill
to the upper level mark with the recomended oil.
Check the O-ring for damage.
Remove the oil filler cap/dipstick and drain bolt. (17mm)
With the engine stop switch OFF, start the starter motor for a few seconds to drain any oil which may be left in the engine.
After the oil has drained, check that the drain bolt sealing washer is in good
condition, and install the bolt.
TORQUE: 35 N.m (3.5 kg-m, 25 ft-lb)
Fill the crankcase with the correct quantity of the recommended oil.
