Replacement of impellent oil and the oil filter


The prevention

Long contact of a skin to the fulfilled impellent oil is dangerous enough. Use a protective cream and put on gloves during carrying out of this procedure. The clothes which have become impregnated with oil replace immediately.


Frequent replacement of impellent oil is the main preventive procedure of service accessible to the mechanic-fan. Eventually oil is subject разжижению and to pollution that conducts to premature deterioration of the engine.

The tools necessary for carrying out of change of impellent oil and the oil filter

1 - the Drain capacity - should be not so deep, but enough wide to avoid a spillage.
2 - Rubber gloves - at removal of a drain stopper and the oil filter oil will inevitably get to you on hands (gloves will protect from burns).
3 - the Collar - sometimes the drain stopper appears tightened very hardly, and for it отдавания application of a long collar is necessary. It is possible to use also накидной a key of the suitable size.
4 - the Face head - is used complete with a collar or a ratchet drive (should correspond on the size to a head of a drain stopper.
5 - the Key for removal of the oil filter is a metal tape key for which use presence of certain free space round the filter is required. Such key is necessary not for all types of engines.
6 - the Key for removal of the oil filter - this key is put on a bottom of the filter and can turn by means of a ratchet drive or a collar (for various types of filters there are keys of the different sizes). Such key is necessary not for all types of engines.

1. Before starting to work, make sure available all necessary tool. You also should have near at hand enough of rags or old newspapers for gathering of the spilt oil.
2. Start the engine and warm up it to normal working temperature - warm oil and a sediment follow from the engine is better. If it is necessary to buy new oil, the filter or any tools, поезжайте behind them on the car, thus you will warm up at the same time impellent oil.
3. Park the car on an equal surface and switch off the engine when it will enough get warm. Uncover mouths of a gulf of oil a cover of a head of cylinders.
4. For providing of access to a drain stopper and the oil filter поддомкратьте the car and reliably establish it on support.
The prevention

At all do not work under the car supported only hydraulic or ножничного of type by a jack - always use support!

5. If you were going to make for the first time oil change with this car, get under it and familiarise with an arrangement of a drain stopper and the oil filter. Pay attention that on some engines the oil filter is located in the top left part of the engine. At carrying out of the given procedure components of system of release will be hot, therefore notice, where pass pipes not to adjoin to them in the course of work.
6. Trying not to concern разогретых components, establish drain capacity under a drain stopper in the bottom part of the engine.
7. Clear the area round a stopper, then give a stopper. It is recommended at отдавании stoppers on the last some turns to use rubber gloves, not to receive burns hot oil. During stopper untwisting try to press it to картеру, and then sharply pull out it. It will help you to avoid contact of a hand to a stream of hot oil, and as possibility of loss of a stopper in drain capacity.
8. In process of weakening of a pressure of oil at вытекании, probably, change of position of capacity under картером is required. Check up old oil on presence of metal particles, it can warn in advance you about deterioration of the engine.
9. After plum of old oil wipe a drain stopper pure rags. Any, even the smallest metal parts which have stuck to a stopper, will immediately pollute new oil.
10. Establish a stopper and reliably tighten it. If necessary use a new washer.
11. Establish drain capacity into place under the oil filter.

The oil filter of not folding type

1. Ослабьте fastening of the getting out oil filter, having turned it counter-clockwise a key for removal of filters. Any key for filters will approach.
2. Sometimes the getting out filter is twirled so hardly that it is hard for releasing. In this case punch its metal rod or a long screw-driver through and using it as a collar, turn the filter. Be ready to that at punching of the case of the filter from it oil will scatter.
3. Having released the filter, unscrew his hands from the block of cylinders. After filter removal quickly turn its open end upwards not to admit oil flood.
4. Pure rags wipe a surface of the block of cylinders. Make sure that any of old sealing rings has not got stuck in a fixing surface of the block. In need of them it is possible to remove a scraper.
5. Make sure that the type of the new filter corresponds to the old. Grease with impellent oil a rubber sealing ring of the new filter and establish it into place. Do not use a key for filters since filter pulling will lead to consolidation damage. The majority of manufacturers of filters recommend to tighten them only hands. Usually they can be tightened on three quarters of a turn after contact of a sealing ring with the block, but to follow instructions on the filter is better.

The oil filter with a replaceable element

1. Some models are equipped by the oil filter with a replaceable element. Give a bolt, uncover and pull out the filter.
2. Compare a new element with old and be convinced that it of the same type, then establish it in the filter case.
3. Pure rags wipe a fixing surface of the case and a cover. If necessary replace a rubber sealing ring of round section. Grease a new ring with pure oil and establish a cover and a bolt. Reliably tighten a bolt.

All models

1. Take from under the car all tool and rags, trying not to spill oil from drain capacity, then lower the car on the earth.
2. Fill in new oil in the engine through a mouth in a cover of a head of cylinders. In order to avoid oil passage on the engine use a funnel. Pour in in the engine the quantity of fresh oil specified in Specifications. Wait some minutes to allow oil to flow down in the pallet картера, then check up its level measuring щупом (the Section Check of levels of liquids see). If level within norm, close a mouth a cover.
3. Start the engine and allow to it to work about a minute. To an alarm lamp of low pressure of oil some seconds can be demanded to be switched off, while new oil fills the filter; while it burns, do not switch off the engine. In an engine operating time glance under the car and check up, whether there are no leaks through a drain stopper and round the oil filter. If there is a leak, switch off the engine and hold on a stopper and-or the filter a little.
4. Wait some minutes and again check up oil level. If necessary make having added.
5. The first some days after oil replacement often check its level and presence of signs of leaks.
6. The fulfilled butter churned from the engine in its present kind is not subject to a reuse and should be thrown out. The centres on recyclings and some automobile repair shops can accept fulfilled oil which it is possible then to overwork. After the churned butter will cool down, it can be poured in suitable container and to send in place of acceptance.

The remark

For plum of the fulfilled oil address in local points of reception of working off.
