We will now fill the engine with approximately 5.7 Litres of oil. When filling the final amounts, regularly check the dipstick to ensure you are not overfilling the engine.
Once filled to the required amount as per the dipstick, close the oil cap and start the car, idling for one minute. This will flow the oil around the engine and through the filter. After switching the engine off, wait 5 minutes and check the oil level again, ensuring you are within the acceptable range of the dipstick. Top up if necessary.
