Disposing of Used Engine Oil
Care should be taken in disposing of used engine oil from

your area.

The engine oil filter should be replaced at every engine
oil change.
Engine Oil Filter Selection

disposable oil filter. Use a filter of this type for replace-

Drive Belts Check Condition and Tension
At the mileage shown in the maintenance schedules,
check all drive belts for condition and proper tension.
Improper belt tension can cause belt slippage and failure.
Inspect the drive belts for evidence of cuts, cracks, or
glazing and replace them if there is any sign of damage
which could result in belt failure. If adjustment is re-
quired, see your authorized dealer for service.
Special tools are required to properly measure tension
and to restore belt tension to factory specifications. Also,
check belt routing to make sure there is no interference
between the belts and other engine components.
