    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.‪

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  5. Start the engine and check for leaks.
  6. Shut down the engine. Check the oil level and add oil if necessary.

    Note: Do not fill beyond the maximum fill level on the dipstick, since overfilling may result in high oil consumption. See Figure "Oil Dipstick" .
