  8. Hi, I have an Isuzu D-Max 2012 model, 2,5l 4×4 with 163 hps.
    its recently out of guarantee so i did the oil change myself, 3 months back.

    I followed the instruction manual with regards to how much Motor Oil to fill in – all information is in the Owners Manual / Instruction Manual / Operating Manual (whatever you want to call it).
    According to the manual, my Dmax takes 6,5l of motoroil without a filter change, or just over 7 litres with a filter change – I measured the oil exactly and put in the recommended amount.
    Checking my dipstick / oils stick – the oil is exactly in the middle of the yellow plastic (so perfect actually)

    BUT: today my Isuzu dealer told me that Isuzu has changed how much oil the dmax takes – they have reduced the required amount by about 2 litres!!! Apparently now it should only take 5,something litres . . . that the dipstick or oil stick should only just touch the oil (2 or 3 mm on the dipstick).
    Apparently this change is because they have had engine damage, and something to do with the Diesel Particle Filter (catalyst?)

    Has anyone else heard this, or can you confirm?
    Do I now need to take out 2 litres of oil?

    Thanks in advance

    1. Hello Eugen,

      I am from Eastern Europe, unfortunately, I have not heard about this problem!
      I will try to ask some service from my country and see if they now something and I will come back to you.

      Have a nice day!

    1. Hello Cesar,

      If your car has 2.5 engine diesel with 74kw or 101hp.

      Have a nice day!

    1. Hello Elesock!

      Please tell me from what year is your car, what motor do you have, power engine in kw or hp?

      Thank you!

    1. Hello Sim, are you sure the car is made in 2015, because in our program this engine was put on D-Max made between 2002-2012?

    1. Hello Thommo,

      If you have a diesel engine this is not a problem.
      After you’ve changed it the oil will go dark after 100 km.

      Have a nice day!

  9. Hi there,im looking to diy the atf on my All Nee Dmax year 2015.

    It says in the manualbook,atf capacity is 10.7 litres.

    How can i remove all atf in the system?
    As i drain tru the oil pan bolt,it only came out between 2-3 litres.

    I want to replace all what is inside the transmisions and replace with the new 10.7 atf.

    I felt the engine or the transmission sound very harsh and creates vibration.
    I also felt the pick up acceleration from standing point and overtaking like under power.

    Can you please help me with this?


    1. Hello Shaffry,

      When you say ATF you mean at Automatic Transmission Fluid, I hope!
      If you say that the manualbook says the gearbox oil capacity is 10.7 liters that mean you have an 2.5 CRDi engine.

      Sorry I cant help you, I only have a sketch only for a manual gearbox. I am gone put it here mabe is the same.
      Drain and refill gearbox oil Isuzu D-Max

      Have a nice day!
