1. Unscrew dipstick. Check appearance of oil on dipstick for water contamination, excessive foaming, or particle
contamination. If any of these conditions exist, notify unit maintenance.
2. When checking oil level, make sure engine is not running and is setting level. If engine is tilted, you may add too
much or too little oil. Do not overfill or engine damage could result. If engine does become overfilled, remove oil drain
plug and drain oil until proper oil level is indicated. Always check the lube oil level before starting engine and refill as
necessary. Unscrew dipstick and wipe clean. Observe "H" mark on dipstick indicating engine is filled properly. Place
dipstick into pan. Do not screw dipstick into oil pan. Remove dipstick and observe oil level. Add oil as needed to bring oil
level to top mark of "H'.
3. Drain oil with engine stopped and level. Engine oil should be warm to touch (not too hot to cause burning). Observe
oil for evidence of contamination. If excessive contamination is found, there may be a major malfunction of the internal
engine parts and direct support maintenance must be notified. Install drain plug, and tighten plug. Unscrew dipstick and
fill oil pan with oil OE/HDO as defined in the KEY table above. Maximum oil pan capacity is 0.79 quarts (0.75 liters).
Screw dipstick into oil pan.
4. Apply a drop of oil to component shaft or several drops along hinge. On hinge, open and close door to work oil into
5. The engine is equipped with a rubber plug in the rocker arm cover to aid starting in cold weather below 10 (-12 ).
The plug is removed and 5 or 6 drops of engine oil (OE/HDO) is added before starting.
