Engine oil and the filter


The new and fulfilled engine oil can be dangerous. Familiarise with preventions in Section the Basic safety measures in the Head the General information.


    Before сливом oils, check up the engine on oil leaks. At any found out signs of leak, before continuation of works eliminate the leak reason. Turn off a drain stopper and merge oil.
    After oil plum, will wipe dry a drain stopper. Twirl a drain stopper and tighten it according to the moment. The inhaling moment: a drain stopper of engine oil (a): 50 Н•м (5.0 kg th).
    Turn off the oil filter, using a key for oil filters (the special tool). The special tool: (A) 09915 - 47330 (for engine G16 and J20).

Before installation of the new oil filter oil a sealing ring. For this purpose use engine oil.

    Twist the new filter by hand till the moment while the sealing ring will not concern a landing surface.
    Tighten the filter on 3/4 turns from the moment of a contact with a landing surface, using a key for oil filters. The inhaling moment: the oil filter (b): 14 Н•м (1.4 kg th) (standard).

2 — a key for oil filters.

That it is correct to tighten the oil filter, it is necessary to sustain precisely a position at which there is a first contact of a sealing ring to a landing surface.

    Fill in oil to a maximum level (to mark FULL on щупе). The jellied aperture is from above on клапанной to a cover. It is recommended to use engine oil of grades SG, SH, SJ or SL. Choose suitable viscosity according to the diagramme of characteristics of viscosity of engine oils [A].

The diagramme of characteristics of viscosity of engine oils

In temperature limits from-20S (-4F) to 30С (86F) insistently it is recommended to use oil SAE 10 W-30.

Capacity of engine oil is precisely defined. Nevertheless, keep in mind that the actual quantity of the oil necessary for replacement can differ slightly from the tabular data, depending on various conditions (temperature, viscosity etc.)

    Check up the oil filter and a drain stopper on leaks. Start the engine and allow to it to work about three minutes. Muffle and wait 5 minutes before check of level of oil. Add oil if necessary to a mark FULL on щупе.

Steps 1 - 11, described above, should be executed at the idle engine. For performance of a step 12 be convinced that there is a sufficient ventilation while the engine works.
