 LUBRICANTS & FLUIDS:
This vehicle is equipped with a turbocharger. Turbos create severe service conditions by dramatically increasing temperatures. AMSOIL synthetic motor oils provide excellent protection for turbocharged vehicles.
When using AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil, do not exceed the severe-service drain interval of 15,000 miles, 700 hours or one year, whichever comes first.
