Engine Oil Level Check
Engine oil can be ignited by hot engine surfaces. To avoid engine fire, take great care when you
add engine oil. Clean oil from around oil filler tube area with Rag, Wiping (Item 18, WP 0033)
after filling. Ensure the engine oil filler cap is securely refitted after filling. Failure to follow this
warning may result in injury or death to personnel.
Perform engine oil check with the machine on a level surface and the engine stopped for at least 1
hour. Failure to follow this caution may result in damage to equipment.
Park the machine on level ground.
Remove the dipstick and wipe clean.
Insert dipstick in gauge tube.
Remove the dipstick and verify oil level. Correct level is between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick.
If the oil level is low, add the amount of oil necessary to bring the level to just below the MAX mark indicated on the
gauge rod. Do not overfill.
Replace engine oil filler cap securely after filling.
Report constant oil usage to Field Maintenance.
