Engine coolant temperature gauge

All vehicles

Shows the temperature of the engine coolant. At normal operating temperature, the needle will remain in the centre section.

CAUTION:
Do not restart the engine until the cause of overheating has been resolved.

If the needle enters the red section, the engine is overheating. Stop the engine, switch the ignition off and determine the cause once the engine has cooled down. See Engine coolant check.

Oil temperature gauge

Indicates the temperature of the engine oil.

At normal operating temperature, the needle remains within the normal area.

If it enters the red section, the engine is overheating. Reduce engine speed as soon as safely possible to allow the engine to cool. If the engine is continued to be driven at high engine speeds with the needle in the red section, the engine speed will be reduced automatically to prevent engine damage.

Turbocharger boost gauge

Indicates the added intake pressure provided by the turbocharger.

Oil pressure gauge

WARNING:
Driving with your oil pressure gauge pointer continuously in the red section of the scale may damage the engine.

Note: When the engine is cold, oil pressure close to 5 bar may be indicated.

This is normal. As the engine warms up, the oil pressure will drop.

This gauge indicates engine oil pressure up to a recommended safe maximum of 5 bar.

During normal driving the indicated oil pressure will vary with engine speed, the pressure rising as engine speed rises and dropping as engine speed drops.

If the engine oil pressure drops below the normal range, the oil pressure gauge pointer will drop into the red section of the gauge scale and the engine oil pressure warning lamp in the main instrument cluster will illuminate. Stop the vehicle as soon as safely possible and switch off the engine immediately. Check the oil level and add oil if needed. See Engine oil check.

Fuel gauge

The arrow adjacent to the fuel pump symbol indicates on which side of the vehicle the fuel filler cap is located.
