Oil top up

Hi guys

My dash is warning me to check the oil levels. I get this occasionally when I park on an incline but lately I've been getting it every time I start up. I checked the dip stick and it does suggest the oil level is closer to the minimum point than the maximum.

I'm almost embarrassed to ask. How do I top up the oil and what oil do I use and how much shall I use?

When you lifted the bonnet you should see a sticker under it which lists all the fluids used. The oil one will be a Selenia product ( not sure which as I'm a diesel) and the place to put it is in the cap on the plastic rocker cover that runs across the top of the engine. How much depends on the capacity but there will be someone along soon who can tell you that, it's as important not to overfill it as to not run it too low.

Same grade oil for the 2.2, 2.4 and 3.2.

It's in the manual.

The oil goes in the oil filler cap on top of the engine.
(This is starting to sound like the MiTo lounge in here! )
