Replacement of motive oil and oil filter


1. Regular change of motive oil is one of the most important procedures of routine maintenance which can be executed by own forces of the owner of the car. Eventually engine oil is exposed to fluidifying and pollution that leads to increase in speed of wear of internal components of the engine.
2. Before starting implementation of the procedure, prepare all necessary tools and materials. Make sure available near at hand enough pure rags and old newspapers for collecting the spilled oil. Ideally the engine has to be previously heated-up as hot oil has bigger fluidity and better washes away slime. Working under the car, try not to touch hot surfaces of components of system of production of the fulfilled gases (in particular to the catalytic converter) and the power unit.
3. In order to avoid a scalding and for protection of hands against cancerogenic influence of motive oil try to perform work in rubber gloves.
4. For simplification of access to the components located under the bottom the car should be lifted above the ground and to establish on reliable props, or to tire out it on a platform or a viewing hole. Regardless of the chosen way, track that the lifted car remained in horizontal position and if it is inclined, then at an angle and in the direction, providing a free effluence of oil through a drain opening of the pallet of a case.
5. Having given fixing bolts, remove the lower plate of protection of a case. Besides the lower plate also side guards which can be left on the place are provided, however at the same time it is necessary to observe extra caution not to be cut about their keen edges.

6. By means of a cap or face key with a collar turn off half way a drain stopper of the pallet of a case. Establish the capacity suitable on volume under a drain opening, then finally turn out a stopper.

Turning out a drain stopper manually, all the time press it to an opening. When the carving ends, the sharp movement remove a stopper, trying that the stream of oil got to the prepared capacity, but not to you to a sleeve.

7. Allow oil to follow from a case for some time, in case of need move appropriately drain capacity that the weakening stream did not begin to spill by.
8. After all oil is lowered, wipe with pure rags a drain stopper, its sealing washer and the surface of the pallet around a drain opening. Check a condition of a sealing washer, in case of need make its replacement. Screw a stopper into place, tighten it with the required effort.
9. Move drain capacity under the oil filter located on a forward part of the block of cylinders.

10. For an initial otdavaniye of an oil filter it is the most correct to use a special stripper, either a chain or tape key.

As a stripper of the branded filter the metal plate of the suitable sizes perfectly will approach. Further the filter can be turned out manually. Produce oil from the filter in drain capacity.

11. Wipe with pure rags the surface of the block of cylinders interfaced to the filter, having completely removed from it traces of oil and slime. Having examined the removed filter, make sure that its sealing laying did not remain stuck to the surface of the block. In case of need carefully remove laying.

12. Slightly grease a sealing ring of the new filter with pure motive oil, then screw the filter on the regular place. By hand strongly tighten the filter - at all do not use any tool in order to avoid laying damage.

13. Take the drain capacity and the tool from under the car. Establish into place protection of a case (track durability of tightening of fixture) and lower the car on the earth.
14. Through a jellied mouth fill the engine with fresh engine oil of the required grade. In order to avoid spilling of oil it is the most correct to use the equipped nosikommaslenka, or a funnel. At first fill in a half of nominal volume of oil and wait several minutes, having allowed oil to flow down in the engine case pallet. Continue to fill in oil in the small portions until its level does not reach the lower point in an edge of the measuring probe. Rise in level from the lower mark in the probe to top will require about 1.0 more l of oil.
15. Start the engine and let's it work within several minutes, then examine an oil filter and a drain stopper of the pallet of a case on existence of signs of leaks. Remember that at the first start of the engine after oil change the control lamp of pressure of oil will go out with a delay in several seconds, oil galleries of the engine and a new oil filter, necessary for filling.
16. Kill the engine, wait several minutes, having allowed oil to flow down in the case pallet, then repeat check of level. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment.

17. The merged motive oil is subject to utilization in accordance with the established procedure.

It is indecent and illegal to merge the fulfilled oil in the sewerage - it is necessary to hand over it in special places of acceptance - consult at car repair shop.
