Oil level

Low oil level

F  Identify the engine oil filler cap.
F  Open the filler cap.
F  Add engine oil with exceeding mark A.
F  Fit the filler cap.


For more information on the underbonnet 
and the engine oil dipstick, refer to the 
corresponding section.
There are 2 marks on the dipstick:

A = max; never exceed this 

B = min; top up the level via 
the oil filler cap, using the 
grade of oil suited to your 


F  Open the bonnet and secure it with the 


F  Pull the dipstick out and wipe it with a clean 


F  Return the dipstick to its tube and then pull 

it out again to check the level against the 

F  Return the dipstick to its tube.


Take care when working under the 
bonnet, as some parts of the engine 
can be very hot (risk of burns) and the 
cooling fan can start at any time (even 
with the ignition switched off).
If a level is found to be very low, have 
the corresponding system checked 
by a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 
A check of the engine oil level is only 
valid if the vehicle is on level ground 
and the engine has been off for at least 
30 minutes.
Oil grade: the oil used must meet 
the specification given in the 
manufacturer's servicing and warranty 



Electronic oil level indicator

The check is done for a few seconds after 
switching on the ignition, with a message in the 
display or screen (depending on version).
It is only valid if the vehicle is on level ground 
and the engine has been off for at least 
30 minutes.

It is normal to top-up the engine oil 
level between services (or oil changes). 
PEUGEOT recommends that you check 
the oil level and top-up if necessary, 
every 3 000 miles (5 000 km).


This is indicated by the flashing of "OIL_ _" or 
by the display of a dedicated message in the 
instrument panel. Contact a PEUGEOT dealer 
or a qualified workshop.

Level correct

Level incorrect

This is indicated by the flashing of "OIL" or 
by the display of a dedicated message in the 
instrument panel.
If the low oil level is confirmed by a check using 
the dipstick, the level must be topped up to 
avoid damage to the engine.





Coolant temperature  

With the engine running, when the needle is:

in zone A, the temperature is correct,

in zone B, the temperature is too high; 
the maximum temperature and the 
central STOP warning lamps come on, 
accompanied by an audible signal and a 
warning message in the screen.

You MUST stop as soon as it is safe to 
do so.
Wait a few minutes before switching off the 
Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified 

After driving for a few minutes, the temperature 
and pressure in the cooling system increase.
To top up the level:
F  wait for the engine to cool,
F  unscrew the cap slightly to allow the 

pressure to drop,

F  when the pressure has dropped, remove 

the cap,

F  top up the level to the "MAX" mark.

Be aware of the risk of burns when 
topping up the cooling system. Do not 
fill above the maximum level (indicated 
on the header tank).



Touch screen
