Renault Clio: Engine oil grade

Refer to the Maintenance Service Booklet for your vehicle.

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.

When working in the engine compartment, ensure that the windscreen wiper stalk is in the park position.

Risk of injury

The engine may be hot when carrying out operations in close proximity. In addition, the engine cooling fan can come on at any moment.

Risk of injury.

Consult your approved dealer at once if you notice an abnormal or repeated drop in any of the fluid levels.

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 and contact an approved Dealer.

Never run the engine in an enclosed space as exhaust gases are poisonous.

Engine oil change: if you are changing the oil when the engine is hot, be careful not to scald yourself if the oil overflows.
