Every 1,000 km or before long trips, check and top up as necessary:
engine coolant level, brake fluid level, windscreen washer liquid level, tyre pressure and conditions.
Every 3,000 km check and top up as necessary: engine oil level.
You are recommended to use FL Selenia, products designed and produced specifically for Fiat vehicles (see “Capacities” in section “Technical specifications”).
IMPORTANT - Engine oil
Should prevailing use of the vehicle be under one of the following specially heavy conditions:
– towing a trailer
– on dirty roads
– for short, repeated trips (less than 7-8 km) with outside temperature below zero
– frequently idling engines or long distance low speed driving (e.g. taxis or door-to-door deliveries) or in case of a long term inactivity; replace engine oil more frequently than required on Service schedule
IMPORTANT - Air cleaner
If the vehicle is used on dusty roads change the air cleaner more frequently than the indications in the Service schedule. If in doubt as to how often the engine oil and air cleaner should be changed according to how you use the vehicle, contact a Fiat Dealership.
IMPORTANT - Pollen filter
If the vehicle is used frequently in dusty or heavily polluted environments it is advisable to replace the filtering element more frequently; in particular it should be replaced if a reduction of the amount of air admitted to the passenger compartment is noted.
IMPORTANT - Battery
The charge in your battery should be checked, where possible at the start of the winter, to limit the risk of the battery electrolyte freezing. This check should be carried out more frequently if the vehicle is mainly used for short trips or if it is fitted with accessories that permanently take in electricity even when the ignition key is removed, especially in the case of after market accessories.
You should check the battery fluid (electrolyte) level more frequently than shown in the service schedule in this chapter if the vehicle is used in hot climates or particularly demanding conditions.
Maintenance of your vehicle should be entrusted to a Fiat Dealership. For ordinary routine maintenance operations which you are able to carry out yourself, ensure that you have the necessary tools and original Fiat spare parts and fluids available. Do not carry out servicing operations if you have no experience.
