HOW DO I CHECK THE OIL LEVEL IN MY CAR?
Checking your oil is simple - just follow the steps below:
Oil is to an engine what blood is to the human body – it simply can’t run without it. Engine oil acts as a cushion between moving parts, keeping engine components from coming into contact with each other, and providing protection from wear and tear.
Modern engines typically use approximately 1 litre of oil every 3,000* miles, so you need to check and top up oil levels between services. Aim to check the oil level every month – and always before a long journey.
Please refer to your Warranty & Maintenance Handbook for further advice.
In simple terms, it lubricates, protects, cleans and cools your engine.
As well as reducing friction and preventing wear and tear, the oil cleans the engine of deposits, picking up any damaging debris which is sieved out through the oil filter.
It also helps to transfer heat from inside the engine to maintain a safe operating temperature.
Engines and oil technology is changing and improving all the time so it can be tricky to know which oil to buy.
For complete peace of mind, only use Peugeot recommended engine oils, such as the Total Quartz range. They’re designed to maximise the performance of the engine and reduce emissions.
