Following these simple, but important steps will help protect your investment:

• Always use engine oil approved to the proper specification and of the proper viscosity grade. See “Selecting the Right Engine Oil” in this section.

• Check the engine oil level regularly and maintain the proper oil level. See “Checking Engine Oil” and “When to Add Engine Oil” in this section.

• Change the engine oil at the appropriate time. See Engine Oil Life System on page 10‑10.

• Always dispose of engine oil properly. See “What to Do with Used Oil” in this section.
