Periodic replacements of oil and the filter – the most important preventive procedures of servicing. When engine oil grows old, it becomes liquid and polluted that leads to premature wear of the engine.

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

1. Weaken a drain stopper approximately half way, using a special key of square section. Place a container for discharge of oil under a drain stopper and unscrew a stopper completely. If it is necessary, press a stopper when you unscrew that oil did not proceed prematurely. Remove ring consolidation from a drain stopper.
2. When oil completely flows down, wipe everything around a drain opening a rag and reliably screw up a stopper.
3. Use the special tool to weaken the filter, then unscrew it a hand. Pour out old oil in a container.
4. Wipe all traces of oil and dirt around the place of fastening of the filter. Check whether there was no rubber consolidation on the block of cylinders. If it remained, then remove it.
5. Grease with a thin layer of engine oil rubber consolidation of a new oil filter and screw up the filter a hand, without using any tools.
6. Put the car on a plain horizontal surface.
7. Take the probe for measurement of level of oil, unscrew a cover from a jellied mouth. Fill in oil, using the corresponding grade of oil. Fill in a half of necessary amount of oil and wait for several minutes that oil flew down in the pallet. Then continue to pour oil in the small portions until the level of oil reaches the minimum level on the probe. At addition about 1 more liter the level of oil will rise to maximum on the probe. Close a cover of a jellied mouth.
8. Start the engine and let's it work several minutes. Check it regarding leak of oil around the filter and a drain stopper on the pallet. Keep in mind that the emergency bulb of pressure of oil can burn several seconds as oil has to fill all channels and oil capacities in the engine.
9. Switch off the engine and wait several minutes that oil flew down in the pallet. Check the level of oil and add if it is necessary.
