    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 140 Ecoflex S/S

    Year : 2013

    Default 3.2 oil change

    In the absence of a Haynes manual, could somebody briefly run through what's involved to change the oil and filter?

    Things I need to know - where is the drain plug, what head is on the drain plug, where's the oil filter located (can't see from bonnet side so guess I need to remove undertrays), what type of oil (5-30 synthetic) and oil capacity.

    I've tried searching the forums but to no avail - hope you guys can help.

    Many thanks

    right....heregoes....

    the drain plug is located on the lowest part of the sump..facing rearwards..it's a T45 TORX insert and will be quite tight..The oil filter is not a conventional steel can, but a replaceable element. The housing is found down to the front right of the front exhaust manifold..it's an alloy casting with a nut cast onto the top of it, yet again it will be tight..don't forget to replace the o rings on both the sump bolt and the oil filter housing

    There are no undertrays on the 3.2V6 to remove, so access is superb..

    refill with 5W30 fully synthetic oil using 4.75 litres..
