1.6.17. Control of level of oil

Level of oil is determined by a marking of the maslomerny probe.

Determination of level of oil
Kill the engine.
Take the maslomerny probe.
Wipe the probe with pure fabric and again insert into a nest against the stop.

Fig. 1.166. Marking of the maslomerny probe

In conclusion take the probe and consider indications on its marking (fig. 1.166).
If oil level in a zone and – oil cannot be added.
If oil level in a zone b – oil can be added. At the same time it is admissible if after that oil is in a zone a.
If oil level in a zone with – it is necessary to add oil. There is enough that after that oil rose in a zone b.
Depending on a manner of driving and service conditions the consumption of oil can sostavlyanm to 0,5 flax of 1000 km. On the first 5000 кмрасход this value can exceed oils. Therefore it is recommended regularly (best of all during each filling and before a distant trip) to check engine oil level.
At measurement of level of oil the car has to be on a plain horizontal surface. After a stop of the engine wait several minutes that oil flew down in the pallet.
At the raised engine loading, for example, at long movement along the highway in the summer, at towage of the trailer or overcoming passes in the mountain area support the level of oil whenever possible in a zone and, but not above.
About falling of level of oil below minimum admissible value fire of a symbol of level of oil in a combination of devices signals. As soon as possible determine level by the maslomerny probe and respectively add oil.

Dolivany oils
It is necessary to add oil in the portions on 0,5 l.
Unscrew a stopper of an oil-filling opening.
Add the corresponding oil in the portions on 0,5 l.
Densely screw up a stopper of an oil-filling opening and insert the maslomerny probe into a nest against the stop.

At a dolivaniye hit of oil on the hot engine is not allowed.

Oil level should not be higher than a zone at all and. If it occurs, then oil through system of ventilation of a case and production of the fulfilled gases will be released into the atmosphere. Besides, oil will burn down in the catalyst that can become the reason of its damage.

Oil replacement
Replacement of oil has to be carried out by the expert.
Change oil of the engine with the frequency specified in the service book.
Addition of additives to engine oil is not allowed. The damages arising in connection with application of such means are excluded from guarantee certificates.
For collecting and storage of oil use special capacities. Capacities have to be rather capacious for collecting all oil of the engine.
