  1. To warm up the engine a trip on 20 km, then the transmission will have temperature of oil of at least +65 °C.
  2. To install the car on a plain surface.
  3. To allow the engine 2 minutes to work idling. To tighten the emergency brake to switch the lever of the choice of transfer to all provisions and to leave in situation P.
  1. To take out a measuring core and to wipe a pure rag.
  1. To insert a core back and to take out again.
  2. To check oil level. If necessary slowly to add oil by means of a funnel and a grid.

Level of oil should not be below the minimum marks, otherwise it can lead to damages of the transmission. If the level of oil is above the maximum marks (F), it can lead to a box overheat that will cause leakage. If level is too high, oil should be pumped out.

If oil of the automatic transmission has black color and a smell of burning, so the transmission is faulty and has to be checked in a workshop.
