Add Engine Lubricating Oil -- Continued.
Figure 4. Engine Oil Dipstick.
When adding engine lubricating oil, the oil level must be checked periodically during filling
process to prevent over-filling of the lubrication system.
When adding engine lubricating oil, allow 1 minute for new oil to drain down into oil pan
before taking a new oil measurement. Do not overfill engine lubricating oil.
5. Perform the Check Engine Oil task, and add engine lubricating oil as needed to bring oil level to just below the
FULL line (Figure 4, Item 1) on engine oil dipstick (Figure 4, Item 2).
If the oil level on the engine oil dipstick is not between the FULL and ADD 6 QT marks, oil
must be added to the engine (perform steps 5 9 of Add Engine Lubricating Oil task).
If oil level on engine oil dipstick covers the engine oil dipstick markings past the FULL line, oil
must be removed from engine. Notify field maintenance.
