    Hallo my Name is Kai from Germany.
    I'm also the owner of a green 2004 Copen since today.
    Unfortunately, I lack the operating instructions.:(
    which oil and lot of it I need for the engine?
    How often it should be changed?

    greets from Leverkusen, Germany

    every 3000 miles. and the filter every 6000.
    think you'll find the oil type info here in a few posts.

    Hi Kai,

    recommended oil for the 660cc engine is 5W30
    2.5l without oil filter change
    2.8l with oil filter change (every 2nd oil change)

    dsb is right with oil changes every 5.000 km, in addition Daihatsu states "OR every half year".

    Andreas

    No, it doesn't need to be fully synthetic. I believe the API rating is SG or higher, which every new oil should support.

    Since you are just after replacing the turbo, I'd recommend going for a more expensive oil such as Castrol's fully synthetic Magnatec to ensure the turbo lasts as long as it can
