Replacement of impellent oil and oil filter



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


Frequent replacement of impellent oil is the main preventive procedure of the service, to the available amateur mechanic. Eventually oil is subject to a razzhizheniye and pollution that conducts to premature wear of the engine.

Tools necessary for carrying out change of impellent oil and the oil filter

1-The drain capacity - should be not so deep, but rather 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 a drain stopper appears tightened very hardly, and for its otdavaniye application of a long collar is necessary. It is possible to use a cap key of the suitable size also.
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 which use needs existence of a certain free space round the filter. 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 collecting the spilled oil.
2. Start the engine and warm up it to normal working temperature - warm oil and a sediment follow from the engine better. If it is necessary to buy new oil, the filter or any tools, go 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 the gulf of oil a cover of a head of cylinders.
4. For ensuring access to a drain stopper and the oil filter поддомкратьте the car and reliably establish it on support.

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

5. If you were going to make for the first time oil change on this car, be appropriated for it and familiarize 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 this 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 the warmed-up components, establish drain capacity under a drain stopper in the lower part of the engine.
7. Clear the area round a stopper, then give a stopper. It is recommended at a stopper otdavaniye on the last some turns to use rubber gloves, not to get burns hot oil. During untwisting of a stopper try to press it to a case, 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 an effluence, probably, change of provision of capacity under a case is required. Check old oil on existence of metal particles, it can warn in advance you about wear 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.

Oil filter of not folding type

1. Weaken fastening of the getting-out oil filter, having turned it counter-clockwise a key for removal of filters. Any key will be suitable for filters.
2. Sometimes the getting-out filter is twirled so hardly that it is hard for releasing. In this case punch it a metal rod or a long screw-driver through and using it as a collar, turn the filter. Be ready to that when punching the case of the filter from it oil will scatter.
3. Having released the filter, unscrew it hands from the block of cylinders. After filter removal quickly overturn it the open end up not to allow spill of oil.
4. Pure rags wipe a surface of the block of cylinders. Make sure that any of old sealing rings did not get stuck in a fixing surface of the block. In need of them it is possible to remove with 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 pulling of the filter will lead to consolidation damage. The majority of producers 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 it is better to follow instructions on the filter.

The oil filter with a replaceable element

1. Some models are equipped with 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 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 the oil passage on the engine use a funnel. Pour in in the engine the amount of fresh oil specified in Specifications. Wait some minutes to allow oil to flow down in the case pallet, then check its level measuring shchupy (see. Section Check of levels of liquids). If level within norm, close a mouth a cover.
3. Start the engine and let's to it 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 operating time of the engine glance under the car and check, 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 oil level. If necessary make having added.
5. The first some days after oil replacement often check its level and existence of signs of leaks.
6. The fulfilled oil merged from the engine in its present look is not subject to a reuse and should be thrown out. The centers for utilization and some automobile repair shops can accept fulfilled oil which it is possible then to process. After the merged oil will cool down, it can be poured in suitable container and to send in place of acceptance.


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