Level of engine oil


Preliminary actions

• Install the car on the flat horizontal platform.

• Check the level of engine oil before start of the engine, but not earlier than in 5 minutes after switching off of the engine.


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


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

Level of engine oil has to be between two tags on the probe for measurement of level of oil. At the low level of oil lubricant of the engine can be carried out with interruptions that will lead to serious breakages of the engine. If the level of oil is higher than norm, the sealing ring of a bent shaft can fail.

The probe handle for measurement of level of oil is painted in bright color. Take the probe for measurement of level of engine oil.

Using pure rags, wipe the probe from the oil remains. Insert the probe into the engine and repeatedly take it.

Determine oil level in the engine which has to be between tags of MIN and MAX on the probe. The amount of oil between tags of MIN and MAX makes 1 l.

Uncover a maslozalivny mouth and fill in the required amount of oil in the engine.
