Seat Leon >> Changing engine oil

The engine oil must be changed at the intervals given in the service schedule.

We recommend that you have the engine oil changed by an Authorised Service Centre.

The two different oil change intervals are shown in the  Booklet “Service schedule”.

WARNING

Only change the oil yourself if you have the specialist knowledge required! • Before opening the bonnet, read and observe the warnings “Safety instructions on working in the engine compartment”.
• Wait for the engine to cool down. Hot oil may cause burn injuries.
• Wear eye protection to avoid injuries caused by splashes of oil.
• When removing the oil drain plug with your fingers, keep your arm horizontal to help prevent oil from running down your arm.
• Wash your skin thoroughly if it comes into contact with engine oil.
• Engine oil is poisonous! Used oil must be stored in a safe place out of the reach of children until it is disposed of.

Caution
No additives should be used with engine oil. This could result in engine damage. Any damage caused by the use of such additives would not be covered by the factory warranty.

For the sake of the environment
• Because of the disposal problems, the necessary special tools and specialist knowledge required, we recommend that you have the engine oil and filter changed by an Authorised Service Centre.
• Never pour oil down drains or into the ground.
• Use a suitable container when draining the used oil. It has to be large enough to hold all the engine oil
