Range Rover Evoque: Oil check preparation

Prior to checking the oil level ensure that: - The vehicle is on level ground.

- The engine oil is cold.

Note: If it is necessary to check the oil level when the engine is hot, switch off the engine and let the vehicle stand for 5 minutes to allow the oil to drain back into the sump. Do not start the engine.

The oil level can then be checked as follows: 1. Withdraw the dipstick and wipe the blade clean with a lint free cloth.

2. Fully re-insert the dipstick and withdraw again to check the oil level.

As a general guide, if the oil level on the dipstick: - Is nearer to the upper mark or notch than the lower, do not add oil.

- Is nearer to the lower mark or notch than the upper, add 0.5 litre (1 pint) of oil.

- Is below the lower mark or notch, add for the diesel engine, 1.5 litre (2.6 pints) of oil and for the petrol engine, 0.8 litre (1.4 pints) of oil. Re-check the level after a further 5 minutes.
