during operations in close 

proximity. In addition, the 

engine cooling fan may 

come on at any moment.
Risk of injury.

Do not press down on the 

bonnet: there is a risk that 

the bonnet may accidentally 

close.

Make sure nothing is left 

in the engine compartment 

(cloth, tools, etc.).
Otherwise, this may lead to 

engine damage or cause a fire.

In the event of even a slight 

impact involving the radia-

tor grille or bonnet, have 

the bonnet lock checked by 

an approved Dealer as soon as pos-

sible.

Ensure that the bonnet is prop-

erly locked. Check that nothing is

4.4

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: general information

Reading the oil level

The oil level should be read with the ve-

hicle on level ground, after the engine 

has been switched off for some time.

The dipstick must be used to read 

the exact oil level and make sure 

that the maximum level has not been 

exceeded (risk of engine damage). 

Refer to the following pages.

A

B

A

B

Exceeding the maximum 

engine oil level
 Under no circumstances 

must the maximum fill 

level B be exceeded: risk of damage 

to the engine and catalytic con-

verter.
If the oil level exceeds the maximum 

level,  do not start your vehicle

Contact an authorised dealer.

It is normal for an engine to use oil for 

lubrication and cooling of moving parts 

and it is normal to top up the level be-

tween oil changes.
However, contact your approved 

Dealer if more than 0.5 litres is being 

consumed every 600 miles (1,000 km) 

after the running in period.
Oil change frequency: check the oil 

level from time to time and certainly 

before any long journey to avoid the 

risk of damaging your engine.

Consult your approved dealer at 

once if you notice an abnormal or 

repeated drop in any of the fluid 

levels.

In order to prevent splashback, it is 

recommended that a funnel be used 

when topping up/filling with oil.

–  remove the dipstick and wipe with a 

clean, lint-free cloth;

–  push the dipstick in as far as it will 

go (for vehicles equipped with a cap-

type dipstick C, screw the cap in as 

far as it will go);

–  take out the dipstick again;
–  read the level: it should never fall 

below minimum mark A or exceed 

maximum mark B.

Once the operation has been comple-

ted, ensure that the dipstick is pushed 

in as far as it will go or that the “cap-

type dipstick” is completely screwed in.

Deactivate the Stop and 

Start function for any opera-

tion performed in the engine 

compartment.

4.5

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: topping up, filling 

(1/3)

Topping up/filling

The vehicle must be parked on level 

ground and the engine should be cold 

(for instance, before the engine is 

started up for the first time in the day).

– Unscrew cap 1;

–  top up the level (as a guide, the ca-

pacity between the minimum and 

maximum reading on dipstick 2 is 

between 1.5 and 2 litres, depending 

on the engine);

–  wait approximately 10 minutes to 

allow the oil to flow into the engine;

–  check the level using the dipstick 2 

(as described above).

Once the operation has been com-

pleted, ensure that the dipstick is 

pushed in as far as it will go or that 

the “cap-type dipstick” is completely 

screwed in.

Do not exceed the MAX level and 

do not forget to refit dipstick 2 and 

cap 1.

The engine may be hot

Exceeding the maximum 

engine oil level
 Under no circumstances 

must the maximum fill level 

be exceeded: risk of damage to the

If the oil level exceeds the maximum 

level,  do not start your vehicle

Contact an authorised dealer.

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: topping up, filling 

(2/3)

Filling: take care when 

topping up the oil that 

no oil drips onto engine 

components - risk of fire. 

Remember to refit the cap securely 

as there is a risk of fire if oil splashes 

onto hot engine components.

If there is an abnormal or repeated 

drop in the fluid level, please consult 

an authorised dealer.

Engine oil change: if you 

are changing the oil when 

the engine is hot, be careful 

not to scald yourself if the 

oil overflows.

ENGINE OIL LEVEL: topping up, filling 

(3/3)

Never run the engine in an 

enclosed space as exhaust 

gases are poisonous.

Resetting the alert after an oil 

change

(depending on the vehicle)
If you change the oil yourself, you will 

need to reset the oil change warning.

To do this, after switching on the igni-

tion, for ten seconds you must:

–  Depress the accelerator pedal fully,

–  with your foot on the accelerator, de-

press the brake pedal three times in 

succession.

Reinitialisation is complete when the 

#

 indicator light goes out. If this is 

not the case, repeat the operation.
Special case: if you change the oil 

before the oil change interval exceeded 

warning is displayed, it will also be nec-

essary to reset the display. In this case, 

the 

#

 warning light comes on for 

approximately 5 seconds to confirm the 

reset.

The engine may be hot 

during operations in close 

proximity. In addition, the 

engine cooling fan may 

come on at any moment.
Risk of injury.

Exceeding the maximum 

engine oil level
 Under no circumstances 

must the maximum fill level 

be exceeded: risk of damage to the 

engine and catalytic converter.
If the oil level exceeds the maximum 

level,  do not start your vehicle

Contact an authorised dealer.

Deactivate the Stop and 

Start function for any opera-

tion performed in the engine 

compartment.

Oil change

Service interval: refer to the 

Maintenance Document for your vehi-

cle.

Oil change capacity

Please refer to the maintenance docu-

ment for your vehicle, or contact an au-

thorised dealer. 

Always check the engine oil level using 

the dipstick, as explained previously (it 

should never fall below the minimum 

level, or be over the maximum level on 

the dipstick).

Engine oil grade

Refer to the Maintenance Document for 

your vehicle.

Brake fluid level

This should be checked frequently, 

and immediately if you notice even the 

slightest loss in braking efficiency.
The level should be read with the engine 

switched off and on level ground.

brake shoes become worn, but it must 

never drop lower than the “MINI” warn-

ing line shown on brake fluid reser-

voir 1.
If you wish to check the disc and drum 

wear yourself, you should obtain the 

document explaining the checking pro-

cedure from the manufacturer’s net-

work or web site.

Topping up
After any operation on the hydraulic cir-

cuit, a specialist must replace the fluid.
Only use fluids approved by our 

Technical Department (and taken from 

a sealed container).

(very severe damage is likely to be 

caused to the engine if it runs out of 

coolant).
If the level needs to be topped up, only 

use products approved by our Technical 

Department which ensure:
–  protection against freezing;
–  anticorrosion protection of the cool-

ing system.

fluid (anti-freeze product in winter).
Jets: to adjust the angle of the jets, 

pivot the little ball using a pin.
Use products approved by the Technical 

Department.

Coolant
