Hello OK you need a fully synthetic 5W30 such as Castrol Magnatec or Mobil 1 ESP 5W30
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I put 5w -40 in is that going to cause a problem? The warning light hasn't gone out?
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
hello 5W40 will do for a top up, you just pay a very small penalty in fuel economy how much extra have you added?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1 litre the engine warning light has now gone out.
Expert:  Matt replied 1 year ago.
Hello OK, I'd check the dipstick with the car parked on level ground and after the engine has been stopped for at least 10 mins and add a further litre of the 5W30 if required if yours has no dipstick then there will be a service menu on the information centre that allows you to take a oil level measurement
