Engine Oil and Filter Maintenance for Pro XD 2000G/4000G

Always check and change the oil at the intervals outlined in the Periodic Maintenance Chart in your Owner's Manual. Always use the recommended engine oil. Always change the oil filter whenever changing oil.

Pay special attention to the oil level. A rise in oil level during cold weather can indicate contaminants collecting in the oil sump or crankcase. Change oil immediately if the oil level begins to rise. Monitor the oil level, and if it continues to rise, discontinue use and determine the cause. Your dealer can assist. WARNING: Vehicle operation with insufficient, deteriorated, or contaminated engine oil will cause accelerated wear and may result in engine seizure, accident and injury.

NOTICE: Mixing brands or using a non-recommended oil may cause serious engine damage. Always use the recommended oil. 

Engine Oil Check

The oil dipstick is located on the engine. Access the dipstick through the right rear wheel well.

To check the oil, do the following:

1. Position vehicle on a level surface and place the transmission in PARK.

2. Stop the engine and allow it to cool down before removing the dipstick.

3. Raise the cargo box. Unlock the dipstick lever (1). Remove the dipstick and wipe it dry with a clean cloth.

4. Reinstall the dipstick and push it into place. Do not lock the dipstick. NOTE: Make certain the dipstick is inserted all the way into the dipstick tube to keep the depth of the dipstick consistent.

5. Remove the dipstick and check the oil level.

6. Add the recommended oil as necessary to bring the oil level within the SAFE range on dipstick. Do not overfill. NOTE: A rising oil level between checks during cold weather operation can indicate contaminants such as gas or moisture collecting in the crankcase. If the oil level is over the upper mark, change the oil immediately.

7. With the cargo box raised, add engine oil through the oil fill cap (2), shown above, located on top of the valve cover, under the cargo box.
