F-9. LUBRICATION NOTES
Engine dipstick is located close to starter solenoid connectors
which contain 24 vdc and high amperage.
removing/installing engine dipstick to prevent shorting across
starter solenoids when checking engine oil level. Failure to
comply may result in serious injury or death to personnel or
damage to equipment.
1. Check engine oil level daily. Oil is full when level is within crosshatch marks on
dipstick. Do not overfill. Fill crankcase with OE/HDO specified for the ambient
2. Check transmission/transfer case oil level daily with vehicle parked on level
surface and transmission range selector in Neutral (N). Safe operating oil level is
when transmission/transfer case fluid level is halfway between "HOT ADD" line and
"HOT FULL" line on dipstick. With engine at idle (500-800 rpm) for one minute
and engine coolant temperature at normal operating range (165-180 F (74-82 C)),
check transmission/transfer case oil level. If level is below "HOT ADD" line, add
one (1) quart of oil and check oil level. Repeat this procedure until oil level is
halfway between "HOT ADD" line and "HOT FULL" line. If level is above "HOT
FULL" line, drain one (1) quart of oil from transmission and check oil level. Repeat
this procedure until oil level is halfway between "HOT FULL" line and "HOT ADD"
line. Use OE/HDO oil specified for the ambient temperature.
