Oil Change

Murcielago Oil Change


1.     Raise the car off the ground so that it is level



2.    Remove two drain plugs on right side of the oil pan and discard the washers
       Approximately 4 quarts of oil will drain out

3.    Re-install the drain plugs, with new washers

4.    Remove the dry sump drain plug using a 17mm socket and discard washer
       (In front of the left rear wheel, hidden by a rubber plug)
       Approximately 8 quarts of oil will drain out



The dry sump drain plug is the recessed bolt pictured below:



The entire bottom plug of the dry sump tank may come out (not only drain plug)

This makes removing the entire assembly out of the small access hole messy



5.     Re-install the drain plug, with new washers

6.     Remove the oil filter
        (If the filter is on tight, use an oil filter wrench to remove it)

7.     Fill the new oil filter 3/4 full with new oil
        With your finger, place oil on the seal of the oil filter


8.     Install the oil filter hand tight




9.     Fill the engine with 4 quarts of oil

10.   Fill the dry sump tank (on the left side of the engine, near the rear window)    
        with 8 quarts of oil

11.   Start the car, let it run for a few minutes. Then shut it off.
        Check the oil level and inspect for any leaks


2005+ / LP640

9.     Fill the dry sump tank with the full 12 quarts of oil

10.  Crank the engine over, but do not start it, 3-6 times to prime the oil pump and engine

11.   Start the car, let it run for a few minutes. Then shut it off.                              

        Check the oil level and inspect for any leaks

  1. Thanks for this easy tutorial. Oil changing is really one of the most important things that a car owner should be aware of and skilled with. It shouldn’t be overlooked because this is usually what slows down the engine.

  2. Please note, the 05+ murci's not just the lp640/lp670s require all oil going into the dry sump tank.
