Spuskaniye of impellent oil

Impellent oil can be pumped out by means of a probe through directing tube щупа.


  1. Warm up the engine to working temperature of cooling liquid.
  2. To Poddomkratta the car also establish it on props, or tire out on a viewing hole.
  3. Substitute under a drain stopper capacity in volume about 6 l for collecting the fulfilled oil.
  1. Turn out a drain stopper and let's to oil flow down completely.

Do not burn a hand the warmed-up following oil!

  1. Check a condition of the fulfilled oil. If in it there is at a large number a metal shaving and wear products, it indicates existence задиров, for example, in bearings of a cranked shaft and shatunny bearings. For an exception of damages after the carried-out repair it is necessary to clear carefully oil channels and hoses, and also, at the corresponding complete set, to replace a maslookhladitel.

Replacement of the oil filter


  1. Turn out the oil filter from a flange. For this purpose it is possible to use the special adaptation or a tape key. It is possible to insert also a sharp screw-driver sideways into the filter, thus oil therefore in advance substitute capacity for collecting oil under the filter will start to follow from the filter.

Impellent oils of identical type and identical brands, but different viscosity can fill in during appropriate time of year.


  1. Screw a carving stopper of a drain opening with a new sealing ring and tighten it with effort of 45 Nanometers.
  2. Uncover a jellied mouth and fill in impellent oil approximately on half of liter less, than it is specified in Specifications (see. Section Check of levels of liquids, control of leaks).
  3. Start the engine and let's to it work idling, having checked meanwhile existence of leakages of impellent oil.
  4. Wait for 5 minutes, then check level of oil and if necessary modify it.
