2.6. Level of engine oil


Level of engine oil check before engine start, but not earlier than in 5 minutes after engine switching off.

Fill in in the engine only engine oil ordered by manufacturer.


If level of engine oil constantly decreases and often it is necessary to add oil in the engine, check, whether there are leakages of engine oil. For this purpose at a car parking under the engine spread a big sheet of paper, and check existence of oil spots on paper that will allow to define leak and its place in the engine in the morning. If leakages of engine oil are absent, means, the engine is worn-out, and oil, getting to engine cylinders, burns down together with fuel.

Level of engine oil should be between two labels on щупе for measurement of level of oil. At low level of oil greasing of the engine can be carried out with interruptions that will lead to serious breakages of the engine. If level of oil is higher than norm, the sealing ring of a cranked shaft can fail.

Check of level of engine oil

1. Establish the car on an equal horizontal platform.
2. The handle щупа for measurement of level of oil is painted in bright color. Take щуп for measurement of level of engine oil.
3. Using pure rags, wipe щуп from the oil remains. Insert щуп into the engine and repeatedly take it.
4. Define oil level in the engine which should be between MIN and MAX labels on щупе. The amount of oil between labels of MIN and MAX makes 1 l.
5. Uncover a maslozalivny mouth and fill in demanded amount of oil in the engine.
