Engine Oil Level
Be sure that the vehicle is on level ground.
Warm up and stop the engine, and then wait for 5 minutes.
Turn the engine off and wait for a few minutes (about 5 minutes) for the oil to return to the oil pan.
Pull the dipstick out, wipe and re-insert it fully.
Check that the oil level is between the "L" level mark and "F" level mark on the engine oil level gauge.
If the level is low, check for leakage and add oil up to the full level mark.
Use a funnel to help prevent oil from being spilled on engine components.
Do not fill the engine with oil to above the full level mark.
Engine Oil Appearance
Check engine oil for white turbidity or heavy contamination.
If engine oil becomes turbid and white, it is highly probable that it is contaminated with engine coolant.
Repair or replace damaged parts.
Prolonged and repeated contact with mineral oil will result in the removal of natural fats from the skin, leading to dryness, irritation and dermatitis. In addition, used engine oil contains potentially harmful contaminants which may cause skin cancer.
Exercise caution in order to minimize the length and frequency of contact of your skin to used oil. Wear protective clothing and gloves. Wash your skin thoroughly with soap and water, or use water-less hand cleaner, to remove any used engine oil. Do not use gasoline, thinners, or solvents.
In order to preserve the environment, used oil and used oil filter must be disposed of only at designated disposal sites.
Park the car on level ground.
Drain engine oil.
Remove the oil filler cap (A).

After lifting the car, remove the oil drain plug (A) and drain oil into a container.

Replace the oil filter.
Remove the oil filter cap (A).

Replace the O-ring (B) of oil filter cap with a new one.
Replace the new oil filter element (C).
Check and clean the oil filter installation surface.
Apply clean engine oil to the new O-rings (B).
Lightly screw the oil filter cap (A) into place, and tighten it until the O-ring (B) contacts the seat.
Check the O-ring (A) whether is installed correctly or not in place inside of a cap.

Finally tighten it again by specified tightening torque.
Fill new engine oil.
Install the oil drain plug (A) with a new gasket.

Tightening torque :
34.3 ~ 44.1N.m (3.5 ~ 4.5kgf.m, 25.3 ~ 32.5lb-ft)

Fill with new engine oil while checking the oil level on the dipstick.

Total : 6.5 L (6.87 US qt, 5.72 lmp qt, 1.72
Oil pan : 6.0 L (6.34 US qt, 5.28 lmp qt, 1.58
Drain and refill including oil filter :
5.7 L (6.02 US qt, 5.01 lmp qt, 1.50

Fill the crankcase to about half the capacity and then fill the remainder after waiting.
Do not fill oil over the ''F'' line and check frequently the level with the oil level gauge to ensure no overfilling.
Install the oil filler cap and the oil dipstick.
Start the engine and check that no oil is leaking from the drain plug or oil filter.
Recheck the engine oil level.
When rechecking the engine oil level, be sure to warm up the engine sufficiently. If the engine has not warmed up sufficiently, the measured engine oil level may be less than the specification.
