Frequent replacement of impellent oil is the main preventive procedure of the service, to the available amateur mechanic. Eventually oil is subject to a razzhizheniye and pollution that conducts to premature wear of the engine.

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.
  1. 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

Replacement of the oil filter of the diesel engine


  1. Turn out the oil filter from a flange (see an illustration). 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.

On diesel engines the replaceable element of the oil filter is in the special case and for its replacement it is necessary to turn out a case cover. At installation of a cover use a new sealing ring.

  1. Wipe a surface of the oil filter and its flange on the block of cylinders and remove sealing laying if it remained on a flange.
  2. Grease sealing laying of the new oil filter by pure impellent oil.
  3. Screw the new oil filter by hand. After laying will lie down to a flange on the block of cylinders, tighten the filter on three quarters of a turn. Pay attention to the remarks provided on the case of the filter.

Engine filling by oil

At replacement it is necessary to use oil of identical type and, whenever possible, identical brand. It is for this purpose recommended to fix at each replacement of oil on the engine a label with the indication of brand and viscosity of oil. 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 and tighten it with effort of 25 N • m.
  2. Uncover a jellied mouth and fill in impellent oil approximately on half of liter less, than it is specified (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, giving particular attention to the filter and a drain stopper.
  4. Wait for 5 minutes, then check level of oil and if necessary modify it.
  5. Make a trial trip on the car and again check a drain stopper and the oil filter on leaks. If necessary, carefully tighten them. Once again check oil level, if necessary modify it.
