After the used oil has been drained, the old oil filter removed,
and the new filter installed, add the new oil. Your owner's manual
provides recommendations on the viscosity grade, performance level,
and amount of oil required for your vehicle. Most automobile
manufacturers recommend that you use an oil meeting the latest International
Lubricant Standardization and Approval Committee (ILSAC) specification.
Oils certified by API as meeting this specification may display
the API Certification Mark "Starburst" (API's
Engine Oil Program) and API Service Symbol "Donut." Diesel engine
manufacturers typically recommend oils meeting a specific API diesel
oil service category. Oils certified by API as meeting one or more
of these categories may display the API Donut.
The owner's manual will also help you find the oil fill cap. Remove
the oil cap and add the amount of oil required by the instructions
in the owner's manual. Do not overfill. Use a funnel to prevent
drips and make sure to empty completely each container of oil.
