Oil replacement

The following tools are necessary for replacement of oil:

  1. Viewing hole or the hydraulic elevator with support.
  2. The special device for weakening of an oil filter (nippers for an oil filter, a coupling tape key or HAZET 2172 adaptation).
  3. The set of face heads for weakening of a masloslivny stopper, and also capacity is 6 l for collecting oil.

The following wearing-out details are necessary:

Replacement of oil should be made through each 10.000 km, at the diesel engine through each 5.000 km. At rare trips to make oil replacement once a year. At the same time the oil filter is at the same time replaced.

At severe conditions of operation, the movement by short pieces, frequent cold starts and strong dust content of streets, engine oil and an oil filter have to be replaced through shorter periods.

Old oil has to be handed over in special points. It is impossible to pour out old oil at all or to throw out with house garbage.

Discharge of engine oil

For the petrol engine

For the diesel engine


  1. To bring engine oil to the working temperature (min. +60 °C), for this purpose it is necessary to make a trip on 10 - 15 km.
  2. To lift the car in horizontal position.
  3. To substitute under the case pallet capacity for collecting oil.
  4. To unscrew a cover of a jellied opening.
  5. To turn out a bolt of a drain opening from below on the pallet of a case and to completely merge old oil.

If in oil traces of metal shaving and products of wear in a large number are visible, it indicates damages by a rust, for example, damages of the crankshaft or conrod bearings. In order to avoid the subsequent damages it is necessary to clear carefully after repair of the engine oil channels.

  1. To establish a bolt of a drain opening with new laying and to screw 40 Nanometers with effort.
