Ok, so it's an A class Pilote, so I know there will be differences. But there is no sign of the oil filler! The Fiat manual shows it clearly, but it ain't there. Where have they put it? I know I'm going to end up looking a right idiot on this one..... 🙄

Big cap right on top of the engine cover with a yellow oil can symbol on it can't be missed.

Post a pic of the top of your engine.

Blimey! I must be going blind. I'll have another look.

Can't see anything on top of the engine. Two pix attached. It's not one of the reservoirs you can see is it?

New to motorhomes, had a camper van before this.
I'd be tempted to take the lid off the yellow one and see whether it has an oil can symbol on it. Modern engines tend to be colour coded for the various fluids you can put into them, and yellow is usually oil.

Yes, thank you
Stand facing the engine on the left hand side to the right of the brake cap (yellow) there should be an engine cover, feel along that towards the front and there is the oil filler cap you don't need to take off the black cowling but it is a pig to top up Oh and hard to spot as its black and well hidden

Sounds worth a try.

You need to stick your head into the engine bay and look behind the metal framework diagonally right (south east) of the yellow capped filler bottle. It's a pig to top up - hubby uses a small Lucazade bottle and puts some oil in that then is able to pour it into the filler with that, its a prat but doable.

don't some of the A-class come with a 12 inch long extended spout to enable you to access the oil cap recessed back under the engine overhang?

All the gear, and no idea!
Don’t even know where mine is, 3.0L, never needed to look, 9k miles in 12 months and the level hasn’t changed from the day I got it! 😊😊
