2.5.2. Replacement of oil and oil filter


Set of accessories to change of oil in the engine and the filter

1. The pallet has to be small, but rather wide to exclude oil spilling
2. Rubber gloves need to be put on before an otvorachivaniye of a drain stopper or the filter for protection against burns at inevitable hit of hot oil hands
3. The extender for weakening of an inhaling of a drain stopper a face head
4. A face head for an otvorachivaniye of a drain stopper of the pallet
5. A tape key for an otvorachivaniye of an oil filter. The gap between a tape of a key and the filter is necessary for effective capture of the case of the filter
6. A face key for an otvorachivaniye of an oil filter. Puts on on a cut neck in an end face of the case of the filter and rotates the extender (this key is tried for each type of the filter)

1. Timely replacement of oil is the most effective measure applied by the owner to avoid premature wear of the engine owing to aging of oil, its fluidifying and pollution.
2. Before works prepare all necessary tools and materials (see rice. A set of accessories to change of oil in the engine and the filter). Also prepare a large number of pure rags and newspapers for absorption of the spilled oil.
3. For ensuring access to the lower part of the car, the last needs to be established on two supports with a cross-piece, either to lift a telfer, or to come around on a hole or a platform.
4. If you for the first time faced performance of such work as oil replacement, at first attentively examine the car from below, find a drain stopper of the pallet of the engine. Oil should be replaced on the warm engine therefore so far the engine and details of an exhaust system still cold, try to perform other works.
5. Install the car on a horizontal platform. Start and warm up the engine (the arrow of the index of temperature of cooling liquid has to be at least over the lowermost line). It is best of all to replace oil on the warm engine as it flows down quicker and carries away with itself more pollution. After warming up stop the engine, turn off a stopper of a maslozalivny mouth on a cover of a head of cylinders.
6. Lift the car and establish on supports.
7. Carefully, trying not to concern hot details of an exhaust system, substitute the pallet under a drain stopper and turn off a stopper.
8. If the engine is strongly warmed, for some turns to a full reversing of a stopper put on gloves. It is recommended to turn off a drain stopper of the oil pallet a cap key or a face head in order to avoid failure of sides of a stopper.
9. Merge oil in the substituted pallet. In time plum of oil watch a stream in time to rearrange a vessel. Check existence in the merged oil of metal shavings and sawdust.
10. After running off of oil wipe a stopper pure rags. Even the smallest parts of metal which stuck to a stopper and not remote can cause fast pollution of fresh oil.
11. Wipe the pallet about a drain opening and wrap a stopper. Densely tighten a stopper, watching to stripping a thread.
12. Substitute the pallet under an oil filter.
13. Remove all tools, rags and other foreign subjects (do not touch the pallet with the merged oil) from under the car, lower the car.
14. By means of a special key turn off an oil filter (to rotate counterclockwise) then turn out the filter hands. For an otvorachivaniye any standard key will be suitable for oil filters (but it is necessary to tighten the filter only hands). Right after an otvorachivaniye of the filter incline it carving part up not to spill the oil which remained in the filter.


Be careful as the final collector can be still hot.

15. Wipe pure rags a filter prileganiye place on the block of cylinders. If in this place there is a fulfilled oil, in process of an engine warming up this oil will smoke. Remove also all remains of material of laying, if necessary having scratched out from a surface.
16. Be convinced that the type and the sizes of the new filter completely coincide with type and the sizes of the fulfilled. Slightly oil rubber laying of the new filter for the engine and wrap the filter into place.
17. Tighten the filter by hand, to wrap the filter the key does not allow in order to avoid damage of rubber laying. Tighten the filter until laying does not contact with a surface of the block of cylinders. Then hold on the filter, having turned it on 3/4 turns.
18. Fill in oil of the necessary brand through a stopper of a maslozalivny mouth on a cover of a head of cylinders. Fill in oil through a funnel, avoid spilling of oil on the top part of the engine. At first fill in about 0,8 l of oil then wait some minutes that all oil flew down in the pallet and the probe check oil level (see subsection 2.3). Continue to add oil in the small portions, before achievement of mark F in the index probe then wrap a stopper of a mouth and tighten by hand. Start the engine that oil filled all lubricant channels.
19. On the working engine check tightness of a stopper of the pallet and filter, having tracked these places within a minute. At emergence of a leak stop the engine and tighten a stopper or the filter.
20. Stop the engine and wait some minutes that oil flew down in the pallet. Again check oil level on the probe. If necessary add oil to mark F in the probe.
21. During several trips after change of oil in the engine watch a leak more often and check oil level.
22. The fulfilled oil is subject to utilization as it is impossible to use it further. Consult concerning delivery of oil for processing in local points on utilization. It is forbidden to merge the fulfilled oil to the earth. After cooling merge the fulfilled oil in a vessel (in the canister, large bottles with a stopper, etc.) for delivery in the closest point of reception of oil products.
