Kia Niro: Maintenance / Engine clutch actuator fluid

Kia Niro (DE HEV) Owners Manual / Maintenance / Engine clutch actuator fluid

Checking the engine clutch actuator fluid level

In normal driving conditions, the actuator fluid level does not go down rapidly. However, oil consumption rate may rise as vehicle mileage increases, and leakage in actuator related parts may result in increased consumption of the engine clutch actuator oil. Regularly check and make sure the engine clutch actuator oil fluid level is between [MIN] and [MAX] marks.

If the oil level is below [MIN] mark, we recommend that your vehicle be checked by an authorized Kia dealer.

If the fluid level is excessively low, we recommend that the system be checked by an authorized Kia dealer.

Use only the specified engine clutch actuator fluid.

(Refer to “Recommended lubricants or capacities” in chapter 9.)

Never mix different types of fluid.

WARNING - Loss of engine clutch actuator fluid

In the event the engine clutch actuator requires frequent additions of fluid, we recommend that the system be inspected by an authorized Kia dealer.

WARNING - Engine clutch actuator fluid

When changing and adding engine clutch actuator fluid, handle it carefully. Do not let it come in contact with your eyes. If engine clutch actuator fluid should come in contact with your eyes, immediately flush them with a large quantity of fresh tap water. Have your eyes examined by a doctor as soon as possible.

CAUTION

Do not allow engine clutch actuator fluid to contact the vehicle's body paint, as paint damage will result. The engine clutch actuator fluid, which has been exposed to open air for an extended time should never be used as its quality cannot be guaranteed. It should be properly disposed. Don't put in the wrong kind of fluid. A few drops of mineral-based oil, such as engine oil, in your engine clutch actuator system can damage engine clutch actuator system parts.
