1.3.5. Replacement of oil and oil filter


Periodic replacement of oil and the oil filter – the most important preventive procedure of maintenance. When engine oil grows old, it becomes liquid and polluted that conducts to premature wear of the engine.

Before the beginning of this procedure gather all necessary tools and materials. It is necessary, that the engine was warm in order that oil flew down together with bulk of substances polluting it better.

1. Lift the car on the lift or establish the car in horizontal situation over a viewing hole.
2. Weaken a drain stopper approximately on a turn half. Place the container for oil plum under a drain stopper and unscrew a stopper completely. If it is necessary, press a stopper when unscrew that oil did not proceed prematurely.
3. When oil completely will flow down, wipe everything round a drain opening a rag and reliably screw up a stopper into place, having tightened it the moment of 30 Nanometers for the 4th cylinder engines and 40 Nanometers for 5 cylinder engines.
4. Move the container under the oil filter.
5. Use the special HAZET 2171-1 tool to weaken the oil filter, then unscrew it a hand.
6. Wipe all traces of oil and dirt round a place of fastening of the filter. Check, whether there was a rubber consolidation on the block of cylinders. If it remained, remove it.
7. Grease rubber consolidation of the new oil filter by pure engine oil and screw in a hand the oil filter to a contact of rubber laying with the engine, then довинтите the filter a hand on 1/2 turns.
8. Uncover a maslozalivny mouth.
9. Fill in oil in the engine, using the corresponding grade of oil. Fill in a half of necessary amount of oil and wait some minutes that oil flew down in the pallet, then continue to fill in oil in the small portions while level of oil will not reach a maximum level on щупе (c). If level of oil is at a minimum level (a), at addition about one more liters level of oil will rise to maximum on щупе. Close a cover of a jellied mouth (b – normal level).
10. Start the engine and let's to it work some minutes. Check it about leakages of oil round the filter and a drain stopper on the pallet. Keep in mind that the control bulb of pressure of oil can burn some seconds as oil should fill all channels and oil capacities in the engine.
11. Switch off the engine and wait for at least 3 minutes that oil flew down in the pallet. Check level of oil and add, if it is necessary. Check reliability of a tightening of a masloslivny stopper.
